Allergy Friendly Crispy Oat Apple Pie
I’ve been wanting to use the pressure cooker and/or slow cooker for some time now to make a dessert. This was our first attempt, and it came out VERY well. Using a pressure cooker or slow cooker can enhance the overall flavor, and in some cases, save you time. In the case of the pressure cooker, it takes about 20 minutes and presto, dessert is cooked. If you were to cook those apples in the oven, it would take about an hour. On the slow cooker side of things, while it takes much longer, you have the option to add everything before you leave for work, and set a delayed start time. Either way, I see these tools as a real win.
Just a friendly reminder when working with oats- if you are wheat allergic, or have celiac disease, it’s important to use certified gluten free oats. We get ours from GlutenFreeOats.com, and I have to say, I’m quite impressed with their growing standards, and the measures they take to keep people safe. They also happen to be the only corn free oat product I’m aware of. We use their oats for overnight oats, homemade oat milk for the bakery, and of course oat flour for baking. I’ve also recently gotten into making tortillas using the oat flour as well.

For Corn Free: Source safe apples. They shouldn’t have wax on them. Use a safe butter/fat/oil. Make sure each source material is safe for you. Read More
Allergy Friendly Malk Potato Pie Cups
Our dear friend Krysten (KrystensKitchen.com) first introduced us to Malk about a year ago. She was in love with it, and shared info on her Instagram stories. In our area, we weren’t able to get it until about six months ago or so. Several weeks ago, I’m at Rainbow in the city, and we all know how much I love finding new products. Low and behold, Malk Nog (MalkOrganics.com). It was such an amazing find, and much better priced than the fresh sprouted almond milk option. At first, it was just a really awesome find, until I ran the numbers. Read More
Allergy Friendly Purple Sweet Potato Mash
So mister Low/No Sugar had braces put on his teeth. With that in mind, I had to create all sorts of soft foods which were safe for him. In addition to his special “jello” and soup, he was also showered with sweet potatoes galore. There was also pudding and ice cream. And of course, his most favorite person in the world. Krysten (KrystensKitchen.com) brought him some very special Mickey Mouse gummies that she made. Read More
