Salted Cashew Chewy Bars, Gingerbread Marshmallows, Cauliflower Broccoli Pie w/ Grain-Free Crust, and Allergy-Free GF Pumpkin Muffins

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:

Salted Cashew Chewy Bars (grain free, DF, & V) from Sandi’s Allergy-Free Recipes

I spied these earlier this week…..yummo!  I bookmarked them and feel bad almost that it’s Thanksgiving this week.  I’ll have to wait ’til next week to make them since I am too busy with prepping this week.  I would sub in almond or macadamias for the cashews since my son is deathly allergic to cashews. I would also use a lower glycemic index sweetener. And make sure that the nuts you use are soaked and dried :).


Gingerbread Marshmallows from Sweet Kisses and Dirty Dishes

Ummm–these are just!  We love making Homemade Marshmallows!  My kids are already asking me to make this fun new twist on a favorite!  I would use xylitol and stevia likely and might omit a bit of the molasses to keep the sugar content down.

Gingerbread Marshmallows

Cauliflower Broccoli Pie with Potato Black-Eyed Pea Crust (grain free) from Vegan Richa

No need to sub anything here. Is this cool or what?  Grain, egg, and dairy free! Just make sure you de-gas your beans prior to using them.  Ahem.


and Readers’ Favorite

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins (allergy free) from Kitchen Stewardship

Neato! My good friend Katie’s totally allergy-free Pumpkin Muffins were your favorite! I would use all whole grains (because I have this aversion to using starches in my recipes. I know–it’s a little “over the top” but I do try) and probably a mix of low glycemic sweeteners and my Powdered Egg Replacer for my egg allergic son.


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