Chocolate Date Balls

Chocolate! Give me chocolate! Who doesn’t love a chocolate treat now and then? These raw chocolate date balls are the perfect way to enjoy chocolate. No added sugar! All sweetness comes from dates. Medjool dates work best because they are so, so naturally sweet and creamy! Regular dates work also! No matter what kind of date you purchase, they can be either hard to find or expensive. So I usually opt to make these around Christmas time. They may not be a “typical” holiday treat, but they do work wonderfully at this time. To me, they are guilt free indulgence! … Continue reading

Make these raw cookie balls! In mere minutes. Just a teeny tiny bit of work and next thing you know….. You’ll be noshing on a treat so good you can’t stop with just one. Seriously….these are dangerous. Some cashew butter (try homemade!), coconut, and a few other simple ingredients and next thing you know, you’ve satisfied your sweet tooth.

Pumpkin and Cranberry Granola

Making your own food is part of the gluten free, dairy free, (or allergy free) lifestyle. It just comes with territory and everyone is better off because of it. Homemade is always better! This is so true when it comes to granola; you can control the amount of oil and sugar used. So, in the spirit of autumn and all things pumpkin, I created a Pumpkin and Cranberry Granola recipe for Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Connection Team (FAACT). (I was not compensated). You can find the recipe by clicking here. And if you love granola as much as I do, … Continue reading

Gluten Free Graham Crackers

One of the main reasons I do not post every day, or every other day or even weekly is because I will only put up recipes that actually work and taste great. Honestly, I am surprised by the number of food bloggers that “put up recipes” that do not work. I know my way around a kitchen very well, and if I can’t make a recipe that I read on another’s blog work, then I really don’t think the average reader can. I have had this experience time and again when trying other’s gluten free cracker recipes. I have never … Continue reading

Cashew and Honey Bars with Chocolate Drizzle

Oooh La La. These are delish! Gluten free and allergy friendly baking is not easy. And sometime we just do not have time or energy to do endless measuring. We just want something easy and tasty! Like these Cashew and Honey (and agave) Bars with Chocolate Drizzle. I set out to make these because I wanted something easy like regular rice crispy treats, but without the marshmallows. Marshmallows are corn syrup, sugar, more corn derivatives and more sugar. Not good for people with corn sensitivities, or someone who wants to consume less sugar….way less sugar. I recommend making your own … Continue reading

Gluten Free Grain Free Thin Mint Cookies

Want the traditional Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie flavor without the milk, gluten and soy? Check out these cookies! Lauren from Oatmeal With a Fork came up with these highly addictive, nearly identical, thin mint style cookies. What is even more awesome…they are grain free too! Yep! Don’t get freaked out by her choice of flour…I promise…you CAN NOT taste anything but super, delicious thin mint cookie flavor! Per her suggestion, I’ve been keeping them in the freezer and I find myself heading there several times a day. I really shouldn’t make these again. BUT I WILL! Her recipe is … Continue reading

Crunchy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love a chocolaty cookie? This cookie reminds me of Lucy’s cookies. It’s more a dry and crunchy cookie than an ooey-goey one. Yet somehow they are highly addictive. And perfect for dunking in coconut milk (or whatever you drink). This recipe was adapted from Erin McKenna’s Babycakes cookbook. Also shared at Allergy Free Wednesday. Gluten Free Wednesday. Crunchy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies From: Adapted from Babycakes Cookbook Ingredients: 1 cup oil 1/4 cup xylitol 1/2 cup coconut sugar 1/2 tsp. liquid stevia 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 2 T. vanilla 1 tsp. salt 1 … Continue reading

How to Make Finger Gelatin (a/k/a finger jello)

100,000! That’s a number worth celebrating! 200. That’s pretty big too! Say what? What does this have to do with finger gelatin? Nothing really. Not Irish and not Catholic, not prone to drinking and partying…I’m still celebrating St. Patty’s Day……with some green food. After all, St. Patrick (born A.D. 373) was one of the most prolific evangelists of all time with planting over 200 churches and baptizing 100,000 people. Prior to those achievements, he was kidnapped by pirates at age 16 and taken as a slave to Ireland. He later escaped only to return to his captors at age 30 … Continue reading

Mix It Up Party Mix

Party Mix! Does it grace your cupboards and counters at this time of year? Or maybe it’s a year-round snack for your household. No matter what….try this new version for your New Year’s Party or low-key movie night. Original Party Mix is oil, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic and seasoning salt. This NEW version is slightly different, but just as tasty…maybe even more so! The great thing about this snack mix is that it is pretty interchangeable to suit dietary needs. I used generic gluten free rice squares (like Chex) and gluten free pretzels from Aldi. If you can tolerate corn, … Continue reading
