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!“)
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:
- 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? Anything that is fitting for an allergy free diet in some way (we’re not that strict). For the complete rules, click here. Here goes – starting off with my favorites–and you should check out the other hostesses’ posts to see if you were featured there!

Grain-Free Zucchini Coins with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce from Livin’ the Crunchy Life
We love dipping things in this house (well, most of us do. My oldest won’t dip anything. Into anything.) I would try my Powdered Egg Replacer for the egg, or just the yolks perhaps. I think flax gel might hold the breading on as well.
Easy Peanut Butter Fudge from Whole Food Mom on a Budget
Summer Spaghetti Squash Salad from Candida-Free Candee
I am not sure why, but I was craving this from the moment I saw it. I love the noodle alternative and the dressing sounds wonderful. I think beef, chicken, or beans would taste great on this!
and Readers’ Favorite
Chocolate “Peanut” Butter Protein Bars from Allergy-Free Test Kitchen
I would use any Homemade Nut or Seed Butter in here, but I think sunflower and almond would be the best. I would also use a candida-diet friendly sweetener and I would try to Soak and Dry the Oats first. Make sure you check out why in that post .
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
