Allergy Free RecipesWelcome 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?:

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 6 blogs! Additionally, each hostess will feature a favorite recipe(s) from the week before. Your hostesses are:

Pumpkies (gluten & allergy free) from Sweet Kisses and Dirty Dishes

Yummmm! This amazing dessert won the “my son is going to eat the computer screen” award this week.  He literally pulled the laptop screen almost into his mouth.  I agree!  I would use a more candida-diet-friendly sweetener and my Homemade Chocolate / Carob Chips. Mmmmmm!!


Pumpkin Pie Hummus from Peanut Butter & Peppers

Make sure you De-Gas Your Beans for this one.  My oldest LOVES sweetly flavored bean dishes like this.  And he LOVES pumpkin.  So this is a no brainer.  Use my Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice for this and a lower glycemic sweetener if need be.


Tater Tots from Fairy Wings and Pixie Dust

We have some great garden-fresh potatoes from a local “community garden” of sorts that we help out with.  The taters are going to turn into either these or Addictive Potato Pancakes. Or both!  I would use all whole grain flour.  Can’t wait to try them.


Apple Cinnamon Gummy Candies from Phoenix Helix

Anything gummy is a hit around here.  I think we’d have to limit these a bit since we’re not using much juice (to keep glycemic levels low) but my kids do better with that than I do. I am thinking it’s possible to sub a little lemon juice here for some apple to round out the flavor a little and cut the sugar content a tad as well.

Using Real Food to Heal the Thyroid from Real Food Forager

Whoa. This hits really close to home. I am dealing with some interesting (but not fun) thyroid stuff that I hope to write about soon. I don’t necessarily agree with everything here, but it is overall great info.


I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!

  1. I linked a comparison of some of the most common milk/dairy alternatives to this week’s blog hop. We’ve dealt with dairy intolerance at my house, and the myriad options of milk alternatives can be confusing! I hope you and your readers find it informative and useful. Thanks for hosting!

  2. Thanks for highlighting my recipe from last week. Happy Halloween to you and your family!

  3. Thanks for the highlight!

  4. Not sure how I’m missing it, but I couldn’t find the linky on your site… I ended up adding the link at Tessa the Domestic Goddess and I realize it’s a shared “party,” but, in case I’m not the only one, I wanted to let you know that I couldn’t find the link-up on your site today….

  5. Hello! I can’t see the thumbnails again. Such a bummer!

  6. Thank yo so much for featuring my Pumpkin Hummus! It’s one of my favorite creations! Everything you picked looks just amazing! The Apple Cinnamon Gummies are just adorable and I am so wanting to make the Pumpkies!
