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, eachhostess 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)~
Grain-Free ‘Cereal’ Breakfast Bars from Against all Grain
I’d be subbing in an egg substitute like my Egg Replacer, and I’d probably use a homemade preserve with a candida friendly sweetener like stevia. And I’d sub in for the honey as well. See Substituting Sweeteners for Cooking and Baking for tips.
and Readers’ Favorites
Raw Carrot Cake Bites from Gluten-Free Happy Tummy
I’d sub a different nut in and since we’re not eating dates (too much sugar), I’d try sweet potato puree or pumpkin and extra sweetener.
and Grain-Free Hamburger Buns from Cooking Gluten (& Dairy) Free
These look amazing. Not sure they’d work but I’d try to sub a whole grain flour for the arrowroot and I’d use my Homemade Egg Replacer.
