I have tried to make my own sunflower seed butter in my food processor, but even after a looong time in the processor and a fair amount of canola, I still get a "paste" so thick you can slice it! What am I doing wrong? Do I just need a better processor? We haven't retried pumpkin seeds yet - she got hives from it about a year ago when we first tried it. I'll probably wait until pumpkins start showing up in stores so I can get truly uncontaminated seeds. Thanks!
This is the bread my son depends on...I've been making it for over 2 years now. We use applesauce to replace the egg, so I guess we could call ours applesauce bread!? Going to try it with sweet potatoes. Sounds yummy!

Thanks!!! This is probably my favorite cupcake recipe ever. They aren't hard to make, just time consuming. And the only downside is that it requires peach extract which most grocery stores don't carry. I got mine on Amazon. Otherwise, they are reallllllly goooood and also they aren't overly sweet or anything. Perfect for just about anyone!
Peach extract?? I've never even seen that! But I have made different varieties of fruit infused vodkas - I wonder if you could make peach "extract" that way?? I'm going to have to look up the recipe for that one and see if I can tweak something to be safe for my allergy set (gluten, dairy, egg). I love peach!
I would opt for flax meal instead of flax seeds just to make sure that they soak in the liquid and mix through without an errant seed remaining "crunchy". Flax and chia are very similar and both can be used to make "goo" to replace eggs.

I put my comment because of post's title: «The Perfect Allergy-Friendly Cake and Raspberry Compote Recipe» The word «perfect» is the problem. You surely know that anyone reading that it will assume there's nothing wrong with it, hence it's «healthy». Which is not! The reply confirmed it! «No one said GF is healthy.» Shouldn't be? Shouldn't we promote GF healthy eating?! «Everything is in moderation.» Unhealthy in moderation? I do find the above arguments curious...
The title of the recipe is more referring to the taste and texture. Everyone has to make their own determination if something is "healthy" by their own definition. We don't make that judgement call here. If someone feels that processed sugar, no matter what the form, is unhealthy, then they should look for a different recipe. If they feel it is fine in moderation, then this recipe might work for them.
Hi Pedro, Thank you for your input. We are actively asking for our constituents' opinions about our recipe database and how we can improve what we offer for families with food allergies. Here is a link to the survey if anyone is interested in helping guide the updates we plan to make this year: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZBM2BZP Here is the link to our recipe collection: http://www.kidswithfoodallergies.org/recipes.html You will find more than just cake and desserts there. Thank you, --...
I tried this bread and my family loved it. My older son who doesn't have any food allergies ate 2 slices with butter and wanted more. My husband didn't think it tasted like gluten free bread at all! Thanks for this recipe. I was using egg replacer before and it didn't have much flavor. I like the extra vitamins that we are getting by using sweet potato too. ��
I need to check and see if my kids can even have yeast but I was wondering if anyone has tried this with a different flour mix, my kids cannot have rice, which is in the King Arthur mix. Sounds so good and we would love to have a non soy bread or cracker!,,
these look awesome and easy for the kids to help with. Thanks for sharing. we just made the sunbutter chocolate fudge last night and that is also great. has anyone tried a coacoa bar from the grocery store? I just got one that lists the ingredients as: 100% chocolate and that's it. I also need to stay clear of corn, wheat, soy, dairy, nuts & eggs..wondering if anyone has had any luck using a bar marked 100% chocolate.
HealthyMama - I make them and put them in the freezer prior to dipping in chocolate. I flash freeze them and put in ziploc bags, then pull them out and dip in chocolate. They are much easier to dip in chocolate if they are frozen first. I usually keep a large ziploc bag in my freezer for DS to take to bday parties. He prefers these to cupcakes.
Hi Denise! I've never seen a chocolate bar that didn't have other ingredients such as sugar, cocoa butter and emulsifiers--what brand is it if you don't mind sharing? I've had some 100% chocolate, but it was basically just a brick of pressed cocoa powder and wouldn't have been suitable for using in a recipe like this one. Without those other ingredients I can't imagine it would melt very well. The other consideration would be to make sure you had contacted the manufacturer of the chocolate...

I have been asked to make a cake for a 2 yr old who has severe dairy, egg and soy alergy, this is the first recipe I have come across, is it for defiantly free from all three? if so what flour do you use, and is the vinegar normal brown or is it white?
