Allergy Free Recipes

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?:

Welcome to Allergy-Free Wednesdays (AFW)–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 are shared on 7 blogs! Additionally, each hostess will feature a favorite recipe(s) from the week before. Your hostesses are:

Here goes – starting off with my favorites–and you should check out the other hostesses’ posts to see if you were featured there!

My Favorites from Last Week (with substitution ideas)~

This week we just couldn’t narrow it down to three – so there are four features.  And there could have been many more.   Too much good stuff to choose from!

Chocolate Hazelnut Ganache Truffles from Pickle Biotic
These look wonderful!  I would use my Homemade Vanilla Stevia in these :).  I had never heard of cacao paste.
It’s a little pricey but these look good! I wonder if a mix of Homemade Coconut Butter and cocoa powder could work…hmmmm.

Blueberry Coconut Cupcakes from Sweetly Raw
I would use a candida-diet-friendly sweetener and likely macadamias since my son is allergic to cashews.

Chickpea Kobacha Fries from Vegan Richa
No need for subs here.  So creative!

and finally,

Best DIY Gluten-Free Play Dough Recipes from One Creative Mommy
Did you know that Play Dough (and other company’s doughs) have gluten in them?
If you’re super sensitive, or if your kiddos might just put the dough in their mouths, here is a GREAT option for you!

and Readers’ Favorite

5-Minute Maple Almond Gelato from Oatmeal with a Fork
We used to make banana sorbet all the time years ago.  And then candida struck our household.
This does look amazing, though!

I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!

  1. Hi adrienne
    The chocolate hazelnut truffles look amazing. I can almost taste them. I try a few different things in the kitchen with I should say mixed results. I enjoy trying to cook different foods and will give the truffles a go. If they come out anywhere near as good which I doubt I will send you a picture.

    Uuuummmm lee

  2. These look great! I wonder if the gelato can be made with a yellow squash and added stevia.

    Also, love to make green smoothies. How does the breaking down of the cell walls affect the influence of not consuming certain greens raw for low thyroid function? Does it make it okay, somehow different than if you were to consume the greens raw. Or, does it still pose a problem?

    How does all of this relate to juices?


    • Maybe – I’m thinking it won’t be as smooth, however. Bananas are super creamy. Avocado would be a better sub, IMO. I do not know about the raw greens. It really puzzles me. But I don’t think, from what I have read, that the issue is cell walls. It’s that the items themselves are goitogrens. Do you have info showing that breaking the cell walls of goitogrens makes them OK to eat raw? I just don’t know what to think about it.

  3. Hi Adrienne & thanks for hosting! New follower here via RSS, Twitter & FB 🙂 I definitely want to try all of those recipes above but those blueberry coconut muffins look divine! *drools*

    This week I shared a link on dying hair naturally with tea! Ideal for those with sensitivities to chemicals, cheap, easy & it has a specific tea for brunettes, blondes AND redheads 😀 Dyeing you Hair with Tea

    • I am right there with you, Heidi. If you check out my FB page you’ll see some of what I’ve been through….photo of broken superball is where to look :(. And now the flu. Good night and I am so glad we chose to highlight 4. It was too hard to choose :).
