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).

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)~
Moist Gluten-Free & Vegan Vanilla Birthday Cupcakes from Tessa the Domestic Diva
I would use my Easiest Almond Milk or Easiest Coconut Milk for these. And since I am such a stickler for “all whole grain” I just might try these w/o the starch. We have a birthday in our house this week. Might just try these and see how they turn out!
Lemon Raspberry Quinoa Pancakes from The Veggie Nook
The birthday boy LOVES pancakes and blueberries so I might surprise him with Lemon Blueberry Quinoa Pancakes this week. I would sub in a totally non glycemic sweetener and my Easiest Almond Milk or Coconut Milk. I love that these are made without grinding the grain. I used to make blender baked goods often so I am looking forward to doing it again!
How to Remove a Mole with Apple Cider Vinegar from Don’t Waste the Crumbs
Well, again more about the birthday boy. He has a large mole. Guess what we might be trying. I saw this post awhile ago and was just floored. Amazing and nice to not worry about what a mole might turn into, ya know?
and Readers’ Favorite
Melt in Your Mouth Mini Lemon Cups from The Savory Lotus
I saw these earlier this week and knew I would feature them—but they turned out to be your favorites as well!
I would likely use the crust from my Nut Crust Pie to avoid the dates (read my Candida – The Beginning of My Sugar-Free Life to find out why I don’t eat dates much) and a non glycemic sweetener for the same reason. These look wondahful.
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
