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 Krispy Sunbutter Balls

This is the perfect recipe for to make with the kids or have them try by themselves. My 6 year old daughter, Tayana, made these all by herself. She had so much fun measuring the ingredients, stirring then rolling the mixture into balls. These treats are very good for a snack or quick breakfast.

Krispy Sunbutter Balls

1 cup Sunbutter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup corn syrup
1 1/2-2 cups crips rice cereal (I use Rice Krispies)
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ, optional

Thoroughly combine the Sunbutter, honey and corn syrup. Add the cereal and wheat germ then stir until all of the cereal is coated. Roll the mixture into bite-sized balls. Place the balls on a waxed paper lined baking sheet. Once all of the mixture is used, place the baking sheet in the fridge for 2 hours. Store in a covered container in the fridge.
*  If desired, you can use 1/2 cup of honey or 1/2 cup of corn syrup.
*  The mixture will be slightly sticky. However, if the mixture is too sticky to roll, stir in a little more cereal.
*  The balls can be left plain, coated with safe melted chocolate, crushed graham crackers, shredded coconut, wheat germ, etc.
