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

Can you say drool worthy? I know I sure can. These GFASPBites are simply stunning. Grain free has been getting a lot of attraction lately, and it’s recipes like these that I love seeing. While going grain free usually means focusing on eating more vegetables and other clean foods, sometimes a treat is exactly what you need. Our guest bloggers, Jessica Beacom, RDN, and Stacie Hassing, RDN (TheRealFoodRDs.com), are sharing just that with you today.

Green Gummy Bears y The Allergy Chef - Vegan, Gluten Free, Corn Free

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.

Solti Watermelon Gummy Bears Vegan Gluten Free Corn Free

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.

Charcoal Lemonade Gummy Bears by The Allergy Chef

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.

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.
