This may seem like an oxymoron and quite frankly at times it is. When I combine the food allergies and sensitivities in our family, most foods need to be gluten free, egg free, dairy free, nut free and coconut free. My son is also sensitive to potatoes and rice, which he can tolerate periodically.
At times, it doesn’t feel hard to meet this. Vegetables, fruits, most meats are fine for our family. But venturing into the grain/carb department or treats means treading on thin ice.
Here are a few of the best recipes that I couldn’t function as a mom without:
- The Best Ever Banana Bread by the Healthy Maven: http://www.thehealthymaven.com/2014/01/best-ever-banana-bread-gluten-free-vegan.html
- Chocolate Chip Cookies by Fork and Beans (I omit the salted caramel): http://www.forkandbeans.com/2014/09/19/salted-caramel-chocolate-chip-cookies/
- Blueberry Lemon Muffin Mug Cake by Vega (I quadruple this and bake it in the oven as a dozen small muffins – and I substitute vegetable oil for coconut and soy milk for almond to avoid family allergens): https://myvega.com/recipes/blueberry-muffin-mug-cake/
These recipes all go great on lunches and are kid-tested!
