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.

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

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.

Gluten Free Ultimate Pork Burger by The Allergy Chef

The Ultimate Pork Burger – Gluten Free & Top 8 Free

Before I jump into things, I have to share this quote with you. It’s from Kid Two who is GF, DF, EF, and more. When he was served his burger he said, “I’m kind of afraid to eat it. It looks like a real cheese burger.” My heart melted and I was SO happy to hear this. I told him it’s moments like these that make me do what I do. There isn’t a restaurant anywhere so far that could have served him something like this safely, and I take joy in giving him these one-of-a-kind experiences.

The inspiration for this burger was simple: I wanted something huge and delicious. It also had to have a lot of moving parts like something you’d see on TV, or in an upscale restaurant. I think our mission has been accomplished.

I was so excited about this one, we made an assembly video. Click here to watch the video on Youtube.

This burger does come with a little warning: it’s time-consuming to make, but worth every minute. It took us about 90 minutes from start to finish.

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 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.
