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 Sunbutter Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies

We wanted to try a new cookie for Christmas and these cookies instantly became a new favorite. Our whole family rated them as 1 of our top 5 cookies. They are soft in the center with a slightly crunchy outside. The flavors are perfect together. We made a double batch (which was about 90 cookies) so we shared them with a bunch of friends. They all  loved them. This is a must try recipe.

Sunbutter Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies

1 cup flour
1 cup oats
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup dairy free margarine, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Sunbutter
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup safe chocolate chips

Combine the flour, oats, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the margarine, sugar, brown sugar and Sunbutter until fluffy. Add the applesauce and vanilla then beat again. Add the flour mixture then beat until thoroughly combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls, 2” apart, onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool on the baking sheet for 1 min before removing to cool.
