Gluten Free, Vegan, Allergy Friendly No-Bake Cheesecakes

No-Bake Cheesecakes ~ All The Details

No-Bake Cheesecakes are simply AWESOME. Please refer to this post before making cheesecakes. I’ve put together all the best information in one place for you.

First, Let’s Talk About Cream Cheese Options

When you’re dairy free, there aren’t a lot of options when it comes to cream cheese. If you’re big on homesteading, you can make it yourself. That would be the cleanest option. If you’re new to dairy free and have no idea where to being, you’re most likely looking to make a purchase. Below are the three leading brands of cream cheese available in most stores that cater to people with food allergies. However, be warned, they each come with strings attached. Read More

Gluten Free, Vegan, Malk Potato Pie Cups

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

Gluten Free, Vegan, Paleo, Sweet Potato Mash

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

Gluten Free, Vegan, Paleo, Mini Sweet Potato Pies

Allergy Friendly Grain Free Mini Sweet Potato Pies

With the holidays being in full swing, now’s the time to spend time making fun desserts like these. This recipe is quite flexible in that you can use orange flesh and purple flesh sweet potatoes. When I made this, I knew that I wanted it to be simple so that many different diet types could enjoy it. Truthfully, I was expecting for no one to really enjoy it, however, I was quite surprised. Everyone else in the house really enjoyed this sweet potato pie rendition. Read More

Free and Friendly Foods Gluten Free & Vegan Pumpkin Brownie Bar

Pumpkin Brownie Bars

It’s that time again! Time to start creating all things pumpkin flavored. This is our first of many new pumpkin recipes. Be sure to check back for our savory pumpkin pasta, pumpkin truffles, pumpkin ice cream, and pumpkin freezer sandwiches.

These pumpkin brownie bars came about as we were working on our candy bar project. The “cake” layer of our candy bar has been deemed amazing. With that in mind, I knew we had to try other flavors to see what would work. Rather than make a pumpkin candy bar (yes, I seriously considered it), I opted for a brownie bar just for fun.

If you’re dairy, tree nut, and coconut free, you may need to make your own ice cream at home. Making vanilla ice cream at home using an ice cream maker with a compressor is super easy, and very tasty. You’ll need to have a safe milk base, such as Good Karma Foods Unsweetened Flax Milk, or something homemade. We make homemade oat milk ice cream that’s top 8 free and corn free using the fresh oat milk that we make for our bakery. Now that you know some of the story behind this creation, on to the recipe!

Free and Friendly Foods Corn Free Apple Pancakes by The Allergy Chef

Corn Free Spiced Apple Pancakes

It has been quite a busy season around here, but we must keep moving forward 🙂 We’ve been working on several collaborations right now, and this is one of them. We’ve teamed up with Hannah from Positively Pure Food. She has an AMAzing Instagram Profile, here’s the link. Like me, Hannah creates awesome allergy friendly recipes, so be sure to follow her for yummy ideas.

Together, we decided to come up with holiday CORN FREE pancakes. That’s right folks. Hold on to your seats. While most of you don’t have a corn allergy, those of you that do understand how difficult it can be to source safe ingredients and then get said ingredients to work together to form something just right. Both Hannah and I put in a lot of time and energy to deliver what we feel are delicious, enjoyable, and safe recipes. For all of my corn free friends out there, enjoy yourself. Indulge yourself.

Enjoy Life Pancake Donuts by The Allergy Chef at Free and Friendly Foods

Fun & Festive Quick Donuts

We teamed up with List at Mummymade.it. You can also see her on Instagram, she’s @mummymadeit. Before I jump into things, I have to say, it’s been quite fun connecting with her online. In fact, the internet is quite amazing like that. For years, it seems like we’ve been on our own little island, and now that we’re try to help people, we’re connecting with SO many people who are on the same mission. Here’s what really gets me about Lisa: the health factor. The things she makes without cane sugar will blow you away. So, we thought it would be fun to each share a donut, and cookie with you, with a holiday theme. This week, she has created gorgeous Gingerbread Donuts. I personally can’t wait to give the recipe a go!

On our side of the globe, we decided to do something totally unconventional. We’ve created quick pancake donuts. A while back, I was reading how people are using boxed mixes to make all sorts of things, including donuts. Well, there aren’t many allergy free mixes available on the market. However, Enjoy Life has recently release a whole line. When they first came out, I decided to pass since we have so many pancake recipes around here. I thought, why am I buying a box of something? Although, thinking back, I should have so the kids and The Papa could make them faster for themselves, lol.

However, when these went on sale, I grabbed a few to try. A while back we shared the muffin mix results with you. The kids loved them. So I thought, what if…

The best part about these is that they sat out for 2.5 days, and everyone snacked on them as they walk ed by. No one ever reported that they had gone stale or dry, which is a huge plus. Kid Two said they really do still taste like pancakes. Kid three says they taste like donuts. I’ll let you be the judge.
