Christmas recipe


The holidays create challenges for those with food allergies or sensitivities as traditional recipes are often the focus of dinners and parties. Even a food gift, given to the family, may leave out the individual with food allergies who cannot risk taking a bite of the fudge or Christmas cookies.

It takes a little more time to gather ingredients but “safe” treats can be prepared that will be appreciated by both individuals with or without food allergies. Here’s a “safe” but tasty recipe for Vegan chocolate (carob)-sunbutter cookies that do not contain any eggs, gluten, dairy or nuts.

Sunbutter fills in perfectly for the peanut butter but PB may be used if tolerated. The recipe is amenable to other changes too, such as regular milk instead of non-dairy milk or regular flour instead of quinoa. Feel free to make the changes that fit you or the individual for whom you are baking.
