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 .

No-Bake Mini Pumpkin “Cheesecake” with Vanilla Bean Coconut Cream Topping (grain free & V)
from The Tasty Alternative
Amazing. I would try to use this Sugar – Free Crust instead (sorry about the photo, folks. It was in my super-early-blogging days) to avoid the high glycemic dates. Plus I would use a candida-diet-friendly sweetener and likely macadamias or almonds for the nuts since my son is allergic to cashews.
Chocolate Cupcakes with Surprise Ingredient Frosting (GF, DF, & EF) from Cradle Rocking Mama
I can’t believe what this blogger used for the frosting! Amazing! Plus, the cake is gluten free and vegan. I would use a candida-diet-friendly sweetener for this as well. Can’t wait to try these!
Grain-Free Vegan Tacos from Vegan Richa
My son was sooo excited to see grain-free tortillas! I bet these would freeze GREAT!
and Readers’ Favorite
Healthy Fun Size Snickers Bars (V) from Oatmeal with a Fork
Ummmm….yummo. I have a real thing for Snickers. Gotta try these. I would use almonds since my son is deathly allergic to peanuts, plus I would use a candida-diet-friendly sweetener. The dates would be hard to omit. I am going to try though….I’ll look for a DF caramel sauce and see what I can come up with .
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
