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 Sunbutter Cheerio Balls

Tayana wanted to make a sweet snack by herself. The girls couldn't get enough of these Cheerio and Sunbutter treats.


No Bake Sunbutter Cheerio Balls

2 cups Sunbutter
½ cup corn syrup
¼ cup honey
¼ cup King syrup or maple syrup
5-6 cups Cheerios

Thoroughly combine the Sunbutter, corn syrup, honey and King Syrup. Stir in the Cheerios until evenly coated. Press and roll the mixture into bite sized balls. Place on a wax paper lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 2 hours or until set. Store in a tightly sealed container in the fridge.
*  As long as you have 1 total cup of sweetener, you can change the corn syrup, honey and King syrup as desired.


  1. Hi Lori,
    Of course I just must comment on this sweet (literally!) creation. Thanks for the idea--and continued nut-free deliciousness. Take care.

  2. What's so great about this snack is that older kids can make them by themselves and younger kids can have fun rolling the balls.

  3. I just came across your blog - and I'm in love! My 2.5 year old has the same allergies, but has also reacted to SunButter. Have you tried WowButter or know of any good recipes for it?

  4. Welcome to our blog. I haven't used WowButter, but I would assume you could use it in place of the Sunbutter in any of the recipes.
