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 No Bake Chocolate Oat Clusters

This is one of my go-to dessert recipes because they are simple, fast and everyone loves them.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Clusters

1/2 cup dairy-free margarine
2 cups sugar
6 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup soy milk
3 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Place the margarine, sugar, cocoa and soy milk in a large saucepan. Place over medium heat. Continue to heat, stirring constantly, until the margarine melts. Bring to a full boil then boil, without stirring, for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and thoroughly stir in the oats and vanilla. Drop by spoonful onto waxed paper to cool. Store in an airtight container at room temperature
*  If the mixture is too gooey, add more oats until the spoonfuls of the mixture hold together.

  1. These were fantastic!!! I used Blue Bonnet Light Margarine which is dairy free and used rice milk. I even took them to a party and no one could believe they were dairy free.
