Welcome back to another week of Allergy Free Wednesdays!
A collection of yumminess that is aimed at making it easier for you to create healthy, allergy free foods for you and your family.
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. (There was an entry in a previous AFW of a cake that looked incredible, but used 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?
My Favorites from Last Week (with substitution ideas)~
Zucchini Pasta Italiano from Gluten-Free Happy Tummy
Nothing really needed to sub here and I will get to hopefully break in my new spiral slicer from that deal I got on Groupon! Sadly, not that much zucchini from our garden – anyone else having that problem?
Sweet ‘n’ Savory Vegan Cumin Cookies from Gluten-Free Food
I would sub in a candida friendly sweetener and most likely coconut oil. I am really intrigued by the flavor combo here!
Dairy-Free Ricotta from Living with Food Allergies and Celiac Disease
We don’t eat a lot of soy (due to estrogenic and GMO issues) in our house, but this looks great!!
and Readers’ Favorites
Quinoa, Oat & Coconut Cookies by Yummy Inspirations
Try my Homemade Egg Replacer in these if you can’t have eggs. I’m still on the fence about Quinoa Flakes. I need to figure out how processed they are .
and GAPS Snickerdoodles from Gutsy
Guess you all have a hankering for Snickerdoodles this week, huh . I have a great Pumpkin Snickerdoodle recipe on The Nourishing Gourmet just you should check out to round this out,
These look great! I would use a dairy free oil and a more candida friendly sweetener. Check out my post on The Best Cinnamon Sugar – I bet it would be great on these!
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
