Dairy-Free, Egg-Free French Toast

Dairy-Free, Egg-Free French Toast
1/2 cup vanilla soymilk (I used Very Vanilla by Silk)
1/2 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbps flour
dash cinnamon
several slices of bread (I have used homemade French Bread and regular store-bought bread)

1. Mix ingredients together.
2. Dip bread in mixture.  I found that letting it soak in on a wire rack for a minute or two helps.  Than I took a knife and scrapped off the excess.
3. Bake each side 5 minutes or until golden brown.  I set my skillet at 350 degrees or on the stove on medium to medium-low.

**Stick extras in freezer for an easy breakfast.**

Dairy Free Chocolate (Avocado) Pudding

Ok, this is going to sound strange, but here are your ingredients:

cocoa powder
vanilla extract
maple syrup

(not so scientific) Directions

Place desired number of avocados in food processor. (Three regular sized ones give a nice sized portion for four people.)

Start processing. Add cocoa powder by the tablespoon until the green turns brown like chocolate. You may need to stop the processor and scrape down the sides. Add a dash of vanilla. Then begin adding the maple syrup while processing and do several taste tests until it is sweet enough.


PS. My kids have been known to make a mess while eating this! :)

Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Chicken Pasta Salad

This is one of those recipes that requires "special" ingredients. I made it today because I had some leftovers of everything listed that also needed to be used up. Listed at the end of this recipe are some links to more recipes for these "special" ingredients.

I adapted this from my dairy-based, egg-based recipe. I've been pretty successful tweaking my own recipes to make them dairy-free. My goal is to make food that everyone can eat and not know it's missing dairy and egg.

Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Chicken Pasta Salad
(This is a small serving size of 2 to 4 small servings. You can easily double this recipe.)

1/2 cup pasta, (I use small shells)
1 carrot, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup chicken, pre-cooked
1/2 cup Vegeniase
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dill weed

1. Boil water and make pasta. Drain.
2. While pasta is boiling, chop veggies and mix in a bowl with chicken.
3. In separate bowl mix cream cheese and sour cream with garlic powder and dill weed. Mix in Veganaise.
4. Mix all together. Let sit in fridge for an hour before serving.

**Recently I made dairy-free, egg-free dill dip with Better than Sour Cream and Better than Cream Cheese. Also, here's a great dairy-free cream cheese frosting. Vegenaise can be used in place of mayo in any recipe or for sandwiches. Tofutti has recipe ideas here under fun stuff!**

Buckwheat Pancakes

Pancakes are a weekend favorite in our house - the only problem is that most of the packaged mixes contain at least one of the foods my son is allergic to. And if the mixes don't contain them, the recipe calls for eggs or milk.

I started making my own mixes not too long ago and not only are they allergy-free and easy to make, but they save a TON of money!!

Buckwheat Pancakes

Blend the following ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 c. water
  • 3 T oil (we prefer coconut oil)
  • 1 c. buckwheat flour
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 t. vanilla

You could add 1/2 c. sugar to the mix to sweeten it. We prefer to drizzle our pancakes with maple syrup instead.

This recipe should make 6 large pancakes (8-10 small).


No Bake Cookie Bars

adapted from Lynn's Kitchen Adventures


1/2 c honey
1/2 c coconut oil
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 c Sunbutter
1 1/2 c oats (I used "old fashioned")
1/2 c dairy free chocolate chips


Melt honey, coconut oil, and cocoa powder on low stirring well to combine. Whisk at least 1 minute once melted as the honey really likes to settle on the bottom. Remove from heat.

Stir in vanilla and Sunbutter. Add oats and chocolate chips. Stir to combine.

Transfer to a brownie pan and refrigerate until hardened (approximately 1 hour or more).

Homemade Dairy-Free, Nut-Free Chocolate Candy

With Valentine's Day coming up, I struggle with chocolate candy for my dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free daughter. You can buy expensive allergy-free chocolate or you can make your own. Here's what I came up with to make some fun chocolate candies.

Use a mold or silicon ice cube tray. I bought mine at the dollar store, but I've also seen them at the dollar spot at Target. Simply melt dairy-free chocolate chips, such as Enjoy Life chocolate chips, and pour into the mold. Chill and pop out.

Here's another recipe to change it up a little. Yummy!

Chocolate Sunbutter Hearts
1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life)
1/4 cup
Sunbutter (or Soybutter)
2 Tbsp daiy-free butter (I use
Earth's Balance)

1. Melt in microwave for 30 seconds.
2. Pour in mold
3. Chill in freezer for an hour or longer.
4. Once chilled, pop out and eat!

**Use more or less of the ingredients depending on how many you want to make. You really can't do it wrong.*
