You know it’s fall when the search for pumpkin recipes quickly increase. I love cooking with pumpkin. Pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie… it doesn’t get any better than this. These pumpkin muffins are based off of this recipe, but made to be egg, dairy, soy, nut, and of course gluten free.
Landon loves cookies (what 3 year old doesn’t). We don’t do a lot of sweets around here so anytime we have sweets it’s super exciting. These “cookies” are doubly exciting because I will let him eat as many as he wants! They have no added sugar and can even be made with no oil to be low calorie, low fat and full of health!
I have made them before using mashed banana as a substitute for the oil and they come out fine! Don’t expect them to be sweet like a “normal” cookie, they have a subtle sweetness to them, but nothing like a normal cookie would. Feel free to add a little sugar to sweeten it up.
With breakfast being the most important meal of the day, we don’t have much in the way of foods for breakfast other than the scones and muffins, so I thought I would share some of the cereals that we have found to be “safe”.
Below you will find a list of cereals that we have found to be gluten, dairy, and soy free. Following the list I have also included a majority of the nutritional information for each of the cereals.
We had a visit with Landon’s allergist today. He’s doing good, and getting close to his “anniversary” of his testing where he’ll be re-tested for his allergies. I’m trying to not get my hopes up, but am very anxious to see if he’s outgrown any of his allergies. It would be nice to have a few foods back. Tomatoes, soy or wheat… those would be on the top of my list (like I have a say in the matter…).
On a much happier note, we have a new addition to our family!! Riley was born on September 6th. I was a bit fearful nursing him the first few days. So far there is no sign of any food allergies, at least through my breast milk. I’m hoping and praying that it stays that way. It has been an adjustment having two small children – Landon is in total love with “his” baby brother, and has been a great help so far.
So on to the “good” stuff!! I’ve been wanting blueberry muffins for the last week. Though I could have the allergy filled kind, I would have to eat it in hiding. Blueberry muffins would make a great addition as a breakfast option as well. I found a recipe here and tweaked it to be allergy free for us. They were yummy!
