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 Squares - Mock Reeses Peanut Butter Cups

When Jazzy was diagnosed with her food allergies, we made the decision not to have anything with nuts in the house. I have given up nuts completely so I figured I would never have Reeses Peanut Butter Cups again. I have tried making these squares before but something was always missing in the taste and texture. This time I added crushed graham crackers and they were simply amazing. My girls loved them so much that the whole batch only lasted 2 days. These bars taste so much like the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and they are so easy and fast to prepare.

Sunbutter Squares
(Mock Reeses PB Cups)

1 cup dairy-free margarine, melted
1 1/2 cups Sunbutter
3 3/4 cups confectioners sugar
1 1/4 cups very finely crushed graham crackers
1 1/2 cups safe chocolate chips, melted

Combine the margarine and Sunbutter and stir until smooth. Add the confectioners sugar and graham crackers and stir until thoroughly combined. Firmly and evenly press this mixture into the bottom of a sprayed 9x13 baking dish. Spread the melted chocolate evenly over the Sunbutter mixture. Place the pan in the fridge until the chocolate is set then cut into squares. Store in the fridge.
