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!

Raw Carrot Sandwich Bread from Gluten-Free Cat
Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake (grain & dairy free) from Cassidy’s Craveable Creations
We have a birthday celebration that’s overdue—I thought this looked like a perfect solution! I always liked those store-bought cookie cakes, but this is not going to mess up your gut with tons of starch and sugars–yippee for gut health! Use my yummy Homemade Chocolate or Carob Chips in this as well as whatever sweetener suits you. I would use my Homemade Liquid Stevia for sure, along with Easiest Coconut or Almond Milk, and either a flax egg or this Powdered Egg Replacer.
Fantastic Dairy-Free Fudgesicles (SF w/ V option) from Candida-Free Candee
Something about popsicles is just special. My kids LOVE them. If you can get creamy fudge popsicles without dairy or sugar, you’ve got a real winner! Use my Easiest Coconut Milk for a frugalicious treat!
and Readers’ Favorite
Protein Packed Monster Breakfast Cookies (grain free) from Allergy-Free Alaska
Cookies for Breakfast? You know I am all about “out of the box” breakfasts. Like Chocolate Pudding or Fudge for breakfast. When they’re healthy, why not? I would use a candida-diet friendly sweetener, my Homemade Chocolate or Carob Chips, and Homemade Sunflower Butter.
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
