Intolerance / Allergy Friendly Recipes

It’s important that you know that while I often create recipes that are gluten free, dairy free, egg free and nut free, this does not mean that I think these foods are the enemy or “bad”. The reason I create recipes that are free from all of these foods is to cater for those with allergies and intolerances. Eggs, nuts and dairy are all highly nutritious foods, but they are common allergens. Gluten can be found in many whole grains, which can be highly nutritious for some, pain inducing for others.

As someone who is digestively challenged, I’ve recognised over the years, which foods sit well with me and which foods turn me into a bloated, crampy mess. But let me tell you, if I could eat gluten and dairy without the pain and discomfort, then you bet your bottom dollar I would be eating it (because who really wants to miss out on croissants amiright?).

But the sad truth is, like many others, my digestive system just isn’t up to the challenge. If that sounds familiar then you will find many recipes here that leave your tummy feeling a little happier with life. If not, then enjoy these yummy recipes that just so happen to be (mostly) gluten free and dairy free.

Nut Free Cookie Recipe

I’ve found recently that there is a real shortage of healthy, gluten free vegan recipes that are also nut free. While almond meal is one of my personal favs, it’s no good if you are either:

  1. allergic to almonds, or
  2. trying to pack nut free lunches for school or kindy.

So I’ve been on a bit of a mission lately to come up with yummy recipes that are:

  • nut free
  • dairy free
  • egg free
  • refined sugar free
  • gluten free, and
  • based on wholefood ingredients.

These Vegan Choc Chip Tahini Cookies happen to tick all of those boxes! Yay!

How to Make Choc Chip Tahini Cookies

I don’t think that a cookie recipe could get any easier, really. This recipe is as simple as:

  1. Adding all of the ingredients into a bowl.
  2. Mixing them to form a dough.
  3. Rolling the dough into balls and placing on a baking tray.
  4. Baking for 17 minutes.

Wallah! Done. No blenders required, just one bowl and a spoon.
