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 Cheerio Bars

My girls couldn't get enough of these yummy bars. They are very quick and easy to make and absolutely delicious. They are a great alternative for rice krispie treats.

Sunbutter Cheerio Bars 

1 cup Sunbutter
¼ cup corn syrup
¼ cup sugar
3 cups Cheerios (I used Multi-Grain)
1 cup safe chocolate chips, optional

Microwave the Sunbutter, corn syrup and sugar, stirring every 20 seconds, until smooth. Stir in the Cheerios until evenly coated. Press firmly and evenly into a sprayed 8x11 baking dish. Melt the chocolate chips then drizzle or spread over the bars. Refrigerate until firm then cut into bars. Store, tightly covered, in the fridge.
If desired, additional chocolate chips can be stirred into the mixture before pressing it into the pan.
Rice Krispies, Cocoa Krispies, or cornflakes can be used in place of the Rice Krispies.
