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 Jell-O Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies have a beautiful color and a subtle flavor from the Blackberry Fusion Jell-O.  The oat flour makes the cookies soft and cakey. Very yummy!

Jell-O Oatmeal Cookies

2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup soy milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 box (3 oz size) Jell-O, any flavor desired
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups oat flour (I blend quick oats into a flour then measure)
1 cup flour

Combine the applesauce, soy milk, and vanilla. Add the baking powder and salt then mix again. Add the Jell-O and sugar and mix again. Add the oat flour and flour then mix until thoroughly combined. Drop heaping spoonfuls of the dough 2" apart on parchment lined baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 9-11 minutes or until set and the bottoms are golden.
*  Makes about 24 cookies.

  1. Food allergies seem to be on the rise and common ones include peanuts, strawberries and shellfish. Normally the body's immune system kicks in when it views a substance as harmful. An immune response occurs to fight the invader. When food allergies develop, the immune system views a particular food as harmful and reacts. The reaction can be measured, or more severe. Eating the food item triggers release of chemical signals such as histamine that lead to symptoms. In some cases, symptoms can be life threatening.. I'm consulting web health network for treatment of food allergy and I hope you also can be benefited with there help.
