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!
My Favorites from Last Week (with substitution ideas)~
(Note: There are a few affiliate links in this post…to the popsicle molds and the butter flavor. If you click on them I might make a commission. Your price remains the same. I appreciate your support of my blog !
Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sundae from Sweetly Raw
I would just substitute in a candida-diet-friendly sweetener and I would use my Easiest Coconut Milk and Homemade Nut or Seed Butter. We don’t eat much PB around here (due to candida issues) but almond butter or sunflower would be wonderful for this! You can read Candida & the Beginning of My Sugar-Free Life. for more info about candida, if you like.
Carrot Cakesicles from The Healthy Maven
I LOVE carrot cake. But I told you that last week, right ? I would use a candida-diet-friendly sweetener (again ), and my Easiest Coconut milk. And I would use these popsicle molds because they will work with candida-diet sweeteners – yippee!
Protein Packed Gummy Vitamins from Heavy on Wholesome
Fun! My kids really want me to make these . I’m thinking I’d use cod liver oil for the vitamin part.
Birthday Cake Batter from Peanut Butter & Peppers
I would use–you guessed it–a candida-diet-friendly sweetener here. And make sure you use a natural butter flavor like this one.
and Readers’ Favorite
Grain-Free Pizza Crust (DF) from Laura’s Gluten-Free Pantry
I don’t think that this would work without the eggs, but you could try my Powdered Egg Replacer for a fun experiment. This looks great!
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
