Having a food allergy might add restrictions to your diet, but it does not have to minimize it. Today, there are so many substitute ingredients and allergy-free recipes! Sharing my daughter’s story, The Day I Discovered My Child’s Food Allergies, has inspired me to share her (and my family’s) top 5 favorite desserts that are luckily nut-free! [Reminder: Please double check all labels and ingredients before trying anything new]
1 Ore Pie is a delicious no-bake dessert that is simple to make! My sister introduced this nut-free dessert to us years ago and it’s been a hit ever since! You can make your own oreo pie crust or you can buy one here. I do not have an exact recipe, but you fill the pie crust with a layer of jello chocolate pudding, then a layer of cool whip, then for the final touch a layer of crushed oreo’s on top and that’s it! Cover and put in the freezer for about two hours to set!
2 We call them “Cheesecake Squares,” but according to Pillsbury the official name is Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars. Years ago, a coworker introduced me to this tasty treat and I fell in love! I found this Pilsbury recipe which is so easy and simple! Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars Recipe – Pillsbury.com My daughter absolutely loves to eat and help make this nut-free delight! [I usually cut back a little on the sugar and butter measurements for the top!]
Chocolate Chip Cookies
3 We love a good chocolate chip cookie! I especially love them warm and oh so chocolatey! During the pandemic, we have tried quite a few recipes and one of our favorites comes from Natasha’s Kitchen! Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies (VIDEO) – NatashasKitchen.com
4 Who doesn’t love a delicious decadent brownie? Thankfully my daughter loves them just like I do, Fudgy!! YUM! We have not attempted to make them from scratch yet, but our go-to boxed brownies are the Pilsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownie mix! These nut-free treats never fail! So good every time!
5 Lovely little round pieces of cake on a stick, so yummy and cute! The perfect portion for a little tummy! We have not tried to make these, yet! For special occasions, we order them from Angela of Honeybee Cakes. She provides great service and always reassures us our order will be nut-free!
Hmm, after writing about all of this yumminess I might have to make one of these today! I truly believe you will love each of these nut-free desserts! Let me know if you try any!
