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). For the complete rules, click here. Here goes – starting off with my favorites–and you should check out the other hostesses’ posts to see if you were featured there!

Pumpkin Caramel Swirl Brownies from Ricki Heller
Ummmm….Simply.Too.Tempting. I have to make a dessert for an event tomorrow–and I am thinking it just might have to be these! We’re “on the fence” about going completely grain-free for our son, so I might just have to stay on the fence awhile longer :). I would use my Homemade Nut Butter and my DIY Liquid Stevia Drops. Yum!!!
Pumpkin Whoopie Pies from Fairy Wings and Pixie Dust
Would you believe I have a Whoopie Pie Pan in my shopping cart at Zulily right now? I love Zulily. If you haven’t checked them out yet, you really should. Great prices, great stuff, and great service.
And I have a thing for Whoopie Pies. Well, really I think I’ve almost never had one, but they do appeal to me. Thought it would be a fun thing to make with the kiddos. I would try to make these totally whole grain and sugar-free, using a candida-diet-friendly sweetener. And of course, I would use my Powdered Egg Replacer and Easiest Almond or Coconut Milk.
Sweet Potato Cupcakes with Maple “Buttercream” Frosting from Allergy-Free Test Kitchen
I would try to make these completely whole grain as well. Doesn’t always work, but worth a shot :). I would sub in a lower glycemic sweetener for the cupcake art and Powdered Sugar Substitute. Hmmmm…too many pumpkin sweets this week.
Or maybe not :).
Homemade Sugar-Free KFC Coleslaw from Whole Food Mom on a Budget
I haven’t eaten at KFC in a loooong time. But I do remember their coleslaw being pretty yummy. I am going to have to try this. I would possibly use my Egg-Free Mayo so my oldest could have it, since he is allergic to eggs.
and Readers’ Favorite
Chocolate Pumpkin Brownies (grain free, DF, & V) from The Tasty Alternative
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
