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!

Zucchini Lasagna with Cauliflower Ricotta from Allergy-Free Vintage Cookery
Mmmmmm… Since my son is allergic to dairy, I have NEVER made my family lasagna. Now I am for sure going to. Use my Homemade Coconut Butter for the Coconut Cream. Can’t wait!
Key Lime Coconut Milk Popsicles (DF w/ V option) from Candida-Free Candee
We’ve been drooling over these popsicles ever since I saw them in my inbox about 1 week ago. Use my Easiest Coconut Milk to make these super-frugal!
Crock-Pot Blackberry Maple Pancake “Syrup” from Stacy Makes Cents
I love this idea. Low glycemic berries + stevia + maple extract makes pancake syrup that even us low carbers can eat. I’m still working on choosing a new stevia extract to recommend…..hope to be back to you soon on that. For now, you can read “What Stevia Is and How to Use It” for some good tips.
Perfect Chocolate Ice Cream (V) from Oatmeal with a Fork
I have never tried ice cream with this base before, but it looks wonderful. Use a low glycemic sweetener if need be.

40 Kid-Friendly & Allergy-Friendly Lunch Recipes from Allergy-Free Alaska
Megan has an amazing roundup of recipes here. I regret that I was swamped when she asked for submissions–or I might have been included in the list :(.
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
