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 Fast and Easy Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

I made these pretzels to take for a snack at the movies. They are good and so fast and easy to make that they would be a perfect quick treat. I would also like to try making these with garlic salt for a savory treat because Jazzy loves anything with garlic salt.

Fast and Easy Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

2/3 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
14 oz bag safe unsalted pretzel twists

Place the oil, sugar and cinnamon in a large Ziploc bag and squish the ingredients until thoroughly combined.  Add the pretzels to the Ziploc and seal then shake until well coated. Pour the mixture into a microwave safe bowl then microwave for 3 minutes, stirring every minute. Spread out onto wax paper to cool completely. Store in an airtight container or Ziploc bag.


  1. What brand of pretzels are these?

  2. I use Weis Quality Pretzel Sticks or Twists.

  3. Another great recipe Lori. Thanks again.

  4. WOnderful recipe! Thank you for sharing this recipe to us as I have tried this one and it was definitely a hit in my recent get together. I went so well with a hot cup of coffee made from my new single cup coffee pod at home. Kudos!
