Welcome back to another week of Allergy Free Wednesdays!
A week of yumminess that is aimed at making it easier for you to create healthy, allergy free foods for you and your family.
As I mentioned, this past week, there is no “clear rule” against including processed ingredients in your submission (but we hope you are moving in that direction ). So…occasionally you will find some “whole foodie undesirables” in the entries.
What to do if you see processed foods and don’t want them?:
- White or brown sugar? Sub in sucanat, or honey or an acceptable sugar free sweetener. Get help subbing in my post on Substituting Sweeteners in Baking and Cooking
- Chocolate Chips? Sub in my Homemade Chocolate / Carob Chips (new & improved version coming soon!)
- Others? Don’t think you’ll find many, but ask away if need be. (I see an entry this week for a cake that looks incredible but uses PB cups – I have a great healthy sub for that – Healthy “Almost Reese’s!“
So—-welcome to Allergy-Free Wednesdays (AFW). AFW is a weekly blog hop where folks can share their allergy-free cuisine, gain knowledge about allergy-related topics/issues, and connect with others living or caring for someone with food allergies.
Your weekly submissions will be shared on 7 blogs! Additionally, each hostess will feature a favorite recipe(s) from the week before. Please visit each blog to see their features! Your hostesses are:
- Tessa @ Tessa the Domestic Diva
- Laura @ Gluten Free Pantry
- Nancy @ Real Food Allergy Free
- Amber @ The Tasty Alternative
- Michelle @ The Willing Cook,
- Janelle @ Gluten Freely Frugal
- and–Me .
Wondering What You Can Link Up on Allergy Free Wednesday?
Readers’ Favorites from Last Week (with my substitution suggestions)!
Gluten Free Bread that Tastes Like Wheat from Whole Intentions
This just looks amazing. We haven’t been eating yeast for awhile but I might just have to try this soon.
My only concern / question is if I could go with a heavier whole grain flour mix. Paula – what do you think??
Broccoli Cupcakes with Carrot Frosting by Gluten Free Happy Tummy
These are a riot! I can’t wait to try this!!
I will just be subbing out the cashews for another nut my oldest can have. Love it!
Gluten Free Carmelitas from Premeditated Leftovers
I think these look wonderful. I would just have to change out her Homemade Caramel Sauce for a vegan and sugar free one.
And My Favorites ~
No Bake Easy Cheesey – Cake from Vegan Mommy Chef
I would be using a baked crust (or at least soaked and dehydrated buckwheat) simply because I am concerned about the health implications of eating raw grains (Note: a reader just reminded me that buckwheat isn’t really a grain. It’s kind of a grain / seed, but from what I have read it isn’t great to eat it raw) , but
this filling and topping look wonderful! Oh – and I’d use my Homemade Chocolate Chips, of course. Yum!!
And this delectable Raw Chocolate Fudge Topped Brownies from Diet Dessert N Dogs.
Ricki is a genius. You should check out her site. I would have to sub in another nuts for the hazelnuts for my son who is allergic, but otherwise these are a MUST TRY! (I really have a sweet tooth this week. Thanks for the help, all you great chefs!)
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
