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 Oat Pancakes

This is how I made Jazlyn's pancakes before she outgrew her wheat allergy. I never got into trying the different flours (just barley) so we used oats in place of everything. Sorry I don't have a picture. I just posted this recipe to my online food allergy group and wanted to share it here too.

Oat Pancakes

1 cup quick cooking oats
3 tbsp oil
1 1/4 cup boiling water
1 tbsp sugar

Mix all ingredients until thoroughly combined. Let rest for 3-5 minutes. Drop onto hot sprayed griddle over medium heat. Flip when edges turn golden brown. Continue cooking for 2-3 minutes.
*  Jazzy liked to dip her pancakes in chocolate syrup or applesauce.
*  We also liked adding raisins, coconut and/or cocoa to the batter.
*  Jazzy also liked these in place of bread for sandwiches and other uses.
