Navitas Immunity Caramel Bars Recipe
We’ve partnered up with Navitas to bring you a few new recipes featuring their new Superfood Boosts, which are amazing. What’s even better is these boosts are organic, gluten free, and vegan, meaning they’re safe for many to enjoy. Today’s recipe features the Immunity Boost which is full of healthy fruits, vegetables, antioxidants, and enzymes.
Now, if you’ve been a long time reader of the blog, you know that I look at things totally different from those around me. Show me a product (and tell me what it should be used for) and I’ll imagine many other ways to use it. In fact, when I first met the Navitas rep and he showed me the Boosts, I said, “This would make a great cookie.” He was totally caught off guard as he had never thought to use it that way.
I share that to say this: don’t let food allergies and special diets stop you from creating awesome food. In fact, use your “weakness” as a strength. In the case of these Boosts, I wanted to make them the strength of a dessert 🙂

For Nut Free: Omit the coconut sugar and replace with additional maple sugar.
For AIP: Omit the flax seeds. You will need to add 1 extra Tablespoon of cassava to your filling. Also know that the removal of the flax creates a more crumbly bar (that still tastes delicious).
For Corn Free: You will need to assess if the Navitas powder is safe for you. All of the other ingredients are available from safe sources. 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
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
Allergy Friendly Green Gummy Bears – Vegan, Corn Free
This is the final installment in our gummy bear series that features Solti juices. This was our favorite gummy to eat by far, however, it had some leaking issues after being in the fridge for a while. I’ve seen this before with these types of ingredients. It’s nothing to be concerned about in my opinion, especially if you have a limited range of ingredient options.
Let’s talk texture. These were FANTASTIC. They were a cross between a hard gummy, and finger jello. I personally called them gummy bears, but everyone else kept saying finger jello, so I finally had to cave and agree with them. They’re very soft to eat, and have a melt-in-your-mouth-like experience. Are they close to a traditional gummy bear? Not even close. Are they amazing if you can’t have a traditional gummy bear? Absolutely.
If you can have traditional gummy bears, be sure to check out Krysten’s Kitchen green gummy bears. While they’re not corn free or vegan, they are one of the healthiest gummy bear alternative recipes out there. Also be sure to check out our Solti Charcoal Lemonade Gummy Bears, and Solti Watermelon Gummy Bears.

Allergy Friendly Watermelon Gummy Bears – Vegan, Corn Free
Today I wanted to share some of our gummy bear journey with you, as part of the Solti gummy bear series. We started trying to make Paleo-ish, corn free, gummy bears some time ago. It started with pectin, then we moved on to agar. More than anything, it was all about trial and error, and of course, a little mad science. The Watermelon Gummy Bears pictured below are almost identical in texture to the Charcoal Gummy Bears we shared recently. However, I wanted you to know more about the “failed attempts” that we made, that honestly, were pretty awesome. I’ll never forget the excitement we all had when we made the first batch and ended up with something so close to jelly. Our second attempt was much closer to finger jello, like the Green Gummy Bears we shared.
The takeaway here is to never stop trying to make new things, no matter what your food allergies, intolerances, or special diet may be. Find any and every way that you can to get creative, and eventually, you’ll get something that works, or better yet, you’ll get something awesome that you weren’t expecting.

Allergy Friendly Charcoal Gummy Bears – Vegan, Gluten Free, Corn Free
This was such a HUGE win. If you’re allergic to just about everything, these are the gummy bears for you. However, I have to say this: if you can have things like gelatin, or something like Krysten’s Kitchen Green Gummy Bears, please please please use a traditional recipe. These gummy bears, as awesome as the are, take some getting use to. They don’t behave the way you may be use to… they are a little on the chewy side… they’re different, and greatly loved.

Allergy Free, Vegan, Chocolate Chia Pudding
Have you ever seen Chia Pods in your local grocery store? I saw them a very long time ago, and Kid Two really enjoyed them, but only certain flavors. No one else seemed to like them, and I wasn’t in love with the price. After thinking about the ingredients, I set out to make them myself. That was over a year ago. The boys have been in love with every flavor I’ve created, including vanilla and mango. They also know how to make these on their own now. Chocolate however remains king of the flavors, as it is requested the most. This rendition includes banana, and everyone was happy to have it. What I like the most about this is that it’s coconut free. All too often, healthy chia puddings call for either almond or coconut milk. Well not these. However, if you’re grain free, you could sub in a milk that you enjoy. These work great as a breakfast, snack, or dessert. Once you’ve made them once, you’ll see how the ratios work, then I suggest you go wild and start making all sorts of flavors.

Allergy & Grain Free Veggie Stuffed Pork & Cauliflower Rice
We teamed up with Bentology to bring you this recipe (and another that will be posted soon). They have a really great lunch product you may enjoy. The premise is that it helps with portion control. Their bento-style lunch box comes with 5 containers, each with an image of what should go inside, such as vegetables. It’s a great visual reminder for adults who want to eat healthy. I personally like simply because it’s bento-style. Be sure to check out our Instagram account, @theallergychef, for a giveaway of their product.
