Spicy Chocolate Cookies by The Allergy Chef, Gluten Free, Vegan, Top 8 Free

Cinco de Mayo Chocolate Spicy Cookie Recipe

Is it me, or does everyone else feel like it was just Christmas? Yet here I sit, getting ready to face Cinco de Mayo. Oh where does the time go? This year May 5th will be quite special. Well, there’s also May 4th. It’s a big Star Wars “holiday” (May The Fourth Be With You) and the kids like to celebrate. Back to the 5th. This year the Celiac Disease Foundation will be having their National Conference in Pasadena, and I’ll be speaking. They asked me about doing a demo, and since it’s Cinco de Mayo, of course there’s a tie in. So if you live in the SoCal area, be sure to come by. Here are the Conference details.

For this cookie, I opted to have the spice in the glaze. Knowing that there will be children at the event, I wanted to be sure they would enjoy the cookie as well. If you plan to serve this at an adult party, or one where everyone looooveees spice, be sure to add extra cayenne in the cookie batter.

Navitas Immunity Caramel Squares by The Allergy Chef

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 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

Meat Lover's Brussels & Rice by The Allergy Chef

Meat Lover’s Brussels & Rice Recipe

Today I want to share with you something that the kids absolutely loved: Meat Lover’s Brussels & Rice. It was a quick lunch that I put together, but they went back for thirds. My favorite thing about this recipe: it incorporates Brussels Sprouts. I was surprised when they were much younger how much they liked meals that included sprouts, and have continued to add them when I can.

As some of you may know, we are a homeschooling family, so on rice days I’ll often start the rice cooker with veggies on top in the steaming insert before running an errand or taking the kids somewhere. When we get back, half of the meal is ready to go. This meal is no different.

Gluten Free, Vegan, Carrot Cake Ice Cream

Carrot Cake Ice Cream

There are so many days where I think I’m nothing short of a mad scientist. I love to ask myself, “I wonder if xyz would work…” and this time, it was carrot cake in ice cream form. Turns out, it does. Now, for those of you who may have a single allergy, such as eggs, feel free to start with a more traditional ice cream recipe, then add the items towards the bottom of the ingredient list that helps this ice cream stand apart.

Glute Free, Vegan, Crispy Oat Apple Pie

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.

Free and Friendly Foods Vegan GLuten Free Salted Almond Cookies

Salted Almond Butter Oat Cookie

We’ve teamed up with Barney Butter to bring you this recipe, and there’s also a giveaway on the Instagram feed this week for their product. When making this, I wanted to create something that was simple and delicious, then it morphed into a bar, which I’m totally OK with. On its own, our low/no sugar kid says this is new favorite cookie. While it’s not Paleo, it’s so simple that you can swap the oat flour for something else.

Allergy Free Comfort Quinoa by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Free Comforting Chicken & Rice

This dish came together as one of those, “use what’s in the fridge” types of meals. I only used a small amount of asparagus since around here, it’s considered a bad word. I’m working on that by the way, lol. Here’s the best part though: after I had everything ready, I asked everyone to sample, and they were just so pleased. The Papa said that it’s not a dish that knocks you off your feet with flavor, but at the same time, it’s just so comforting to eat. In fact, he told me several times that evening that “Dinner was just so comforting. We should have that again soon.” Coming from him, and knowing that asparagus was involved, it was quite the compliment. So, from our kitchen to yours, here’s a comforting dish for the family to enjoy.

Allergy Free Stuffed Pork by The Allergy Chef

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.

Allergy Free, Organic Blistered Tomatoes & Pasta by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Free, Organic Blistered Tomatoes & Parmesan Pasta

Do you remember the time we made tomatoes and white fish? Originally, I had planned to blister those tomatoes, but in the end, opted for something else. This time, I wouldn’t be deterred. It was our first time trying this technique, and it was SO cool! I used grape tomatoes, and once I felt they were just right, Kid Two tried one and said it was super sweet. How cool is that? Although he’s the only one that loves straight tomatoes, no one complained when eating them. I’m sure the Parmesan helped with that.
