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 Baked Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

I love baked oatmeal and I'm always trying to figure out new ways to make it. These bars are so simple and fast to make. They are good plain or topped with blueberries, crushed strawberries, chocolate syrup, maple syrup or soy milk. You can change the flavor of the bars by using flavored applesauce. We like them the best using unsweetened applesauce and 2 tsp of cinnamon. Out of all of the baked oatmeal I've made, this is my girls' favorite recipe.

Baked Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

2 cups quick cooking oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 - 2 tsp cinnamon, optional
3/4 cup soy milk
1/2 cup applesauce (plain, cinnamon or fruit flavored)

Combine the oats, brown sugar and cinnamon. Add the soy milk and applesauce then mix until thoroughly combined. Transfer the mixture to a parchment paper lined or sprayed 8x8 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until firm and lightly golden. Cool before cutting into squares or bars. Wrap each piece in foil or plastic wrap or store in a tightly covered container.
