My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Sunbutter Fudgy Buttons

These are Jazzy's all-time favorite snack. Almost every time I ask her what we should make, this is what she picks. They have also been very popular with her non-allergy friends.

Sunbutter Fudgy Buttons

2 tbsp dairy-free margarine (I use Fleishmanns unsalted margarine sticks)
1 1/2 tsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)
1/2 tsp soy milk
2 tbsp sunflower seed butter (I use Sunbutter)

Melt the margarine in a saucepan Remove the pan from the heat then add the cocoa and mix well. Add the confectioners sugar and mix well. Add the soy milk and stir until smooth. Add the sunflower seed butter and mix until thoroughly combined. Form the mixture into 1" patties and place them on wax paper to set. Store in a tightly covered container.
* I usually triple this recipe because my girls eat them so fast.
