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 :-).

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes (V) from Vegan Richa
I would make these with Gluten-Free flour (see Great Gluten-Free Baking Tips for more on that), a candida-diet-friendly sweetener and my Easiest Almond Milk. These were the winners of my son’s “I want to eat them off of the screen” test :). Bravo, Richa! You made me hungry too!
Pumpkin Bars w/ Caramel Frosting (GF & V) from Tessa the Domestic Diva
What a great fall treat! I would use my Easiest Almond Milk or Easiest Coconut Milk, a candida-diet-friendly sweetener, plus I would try to make this entirely whole grain. And for the frosting, my Powdered Sugar Substitute.
Parental Rights at Risk – Forced to Use Chemo from Real Food Forager
This is a fascinating post. What do you think? Should medical treatment be mandated? I am all for safety but personally I think that parental rights are being eroded way too much in our society.
Vitamin D for Depression from Rebuild Your Brain
Feeling blue? Have you tried Vitamin D? Amanda has some super-helpful info about this vitamin that so many people are lacking.
and Readers’ Favorite
Minty Chocolate Dessert Bars from Allergy-Free Test Kitchen
Sigh. It’s the pesky dates again. Since I started the candida diet they have been out of my kitchen. Big sigh. I think you could try a mix of chia gel and sweetener to get a similar texture. I need to try it with this recipe I think :). Plus I would use a candida-diet friendly sweetener to replace the agave.
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
