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 .

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

Power Bars (SF, Vegan) from The Holistic Baker
I’ve told you before that I don’t use many processed foods at all, but I think occasionally it’s OK. And I know–we are talking about removing more grains from our diets, but we aren’t there–yet. These look great! I would soak the oats and dry them, and would use puffed rice and other nuts and seeds that work for my family. And make sure you Soak and Dehydrate your Nuts and Seeds. This is VERY important- and they taste better that way too!
Flavor Infused Homemade Chocolates from Phoenix Helix
I would use a candida-diet-friendly sweetener and would likely try these with carob to avoid too much caffeine. The flavor additions are a superb idea! Which one would you try first? I think orange would be my favorite!
Homemade Chicken Pot Pie from Girl Meets Nourishment
I have never made a pot pie. I think I have to now. This looks great–and the only thing I would sub is a GF flour (likely I would use a blend of all whole grains, since that’s what I do almost all the time–and this isn’t a poofy cake or anything that needs to rise a bunch), and a dairy-free substitute for the cream. I think a thicker version of Homemade Coconut or Easiest Almond Milk would work just fine.
and Readers’ Favorite
Grain-Free Bagels (DF) from Laura’s Gluten-Free Pantry
These look incredible! I think it’s worth a try to see if my Powdered Egg Replacer would work with these. And I would use a candida-diet-friendly sweetener. My kiddos don’t get bagels much. I sure hope to try these soon!
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
