Having food sensitivities does NOT mean no more holiday baking. When I first realized I couldn’t eat gluten and dairy I thought I could tolerate some during the holiday season. Eventually, after feeling unwell and anxious during and after the holidays each year, I decided the holiday baked goods I had grown up with were no longer worth my health (insert long sigh here). Since that “aha” moment I have been experimenting with old and new recipes to find Christmas treats that I can enjoy. Here is a booklet of easy gluten free and dairy free recipes. I substitute the eggs in most recipes (1-2 eggs) with flax eggs.
1 Tbsp. Ground Flax Seeds and 3 Tbsp. Water= 1 Egg
I hope you enjoy!
