Egg Free Kinder Snacks

Egg Free – Recipe Inspiration & Resources

 Tomato & Zucchini Mini Breads

I am very thankful that neither of my boys have a food allergy or intolerance.  

Punky started 4 year old kinder this week and my Mothers Group has just introduced an egg and nut free rule for the snacks we bring along each week.  I have to say – it is tricky to find a baking recipe that is egg free.  Obviously, this is a very minor thing in comparison to the worry a mum of a child with a severe food allergy must feel daily.

I decided to write this post together to help my mother’s group members find inspiration for our weekly get together and also to help me get some inspiration for some new recipes that are allergy sensitive and that keep Punky and his friends happy. I am happy to take this opportunity to test and learn some new tasty recipes and become more aware of food allergies that some families deal with on a daily basis. 

A Recipe to Try

I attempted to search for egg free baking recipes on a number of well known recipe sites but the results were either incorrectly including eggs or only produced a very small number of recipes. 

Colleen from No Eggs No Nuts has kindly allowed me to publish a couple of her recipes to help get you started. 

I gave the Bread recipe below a try this week and Punky loved it. They taste a little like bread and a little like a scone. I added tomato and zucchini to the batch I made.

Quick Mini Cheese Bread Recipe

  • Makes: 5 planes and 14 circles (egg ring size)
  • Cook time: 15-20 minutes

Ingredients:

See Hints and Tips below for measurements if you are adding other ingredients as I have done

  • 2 cups of self raising flour
  • 2 cups of grated cheese
  • 2/3 cup of milk 

Steps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees
  2. Mix all of the ingredients together
  3. Dust a board or the bench with flour and roll the dough out to 2cm thick and then cut out small shapes using a scone cutter (or egg ring) 
  4. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper until cooked – approximately 15-20 minutes. 

Hints and Tips:

  • Add any other items to the recipe that take your fancy eg: bacon bits and or tomato pieces can be added to the top prior to baking or vegetables such as zucchini, carrot, can be grated and added to the mix.
  • I added 1/2 cup of chopped tomato and 1/2 cup of grated zucchini, 3 basil leaves and 6 parsley leaves chopped. I reduced the amount of cheese to 1 cup and used soy milk.
  • I rolled the dough to about 1 1/2 cm thick, next time I make these I will work the dough for less time (I think I worked it too much) and roll it to approximately 2 cm thick instead.
  • Cook time will depend on the size of the shapes you cut.

Carrot Muffins

Carrot, Zucchini and Apple Egg Free Muffins

  • Makes: 12 muffins
  • Cook time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 1/2 cups self raising flour
  • 2 teaspoons of mixed spice
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup of sultanas
  • 1 1/2 cups of crated carrots
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees
  2. Grease a muffin tin
  3. Sift flours and spice into a large bowl
  4. Stir in sugar, sultanas and carrot
  5. Add milk, yoghurt, golden syrup, oil, and vanilla
  6. Stir lightly until just combined (do not over-stir)
  7. Spoon into muffin trays and cook for approximately 20 minutes
Update 27/02/12
I made the above recipe today but added 1 grated small zucchini, and I grated Granny Smith apple. I left out the sultanas, syrup, oil and vanilla. They worked well but the flavors of the vegetables didn’t come through very much. Next time I will add more carrot and use the sultanas.

    We were egg and nut free for a while with my youngest – as well as soy free, wheat free and dairy free.

    It does present a challenge – especially the soy and dairy free as most dairy alternatives are soy based.

    I’ve made piklets with no nuts and no eggs, simply made the regular batter up, omitting eggs altogether. They held together well during cooking and we spread them with jam.

    • Kyrstie February 9, 2012, 9:21 am

      They sounds great Marita and a recipe that would work for a kinder snack also. I think I will try them with berries added – yum!

  • Happylan February 9, 2012, 8:23 am

    We are egg free for my little girl at the moment and it is tricky. We are also dairy free which is tricky. Thanks for these recipes and resources, they will come in handy I’m sure – I might try some and substitute the milk for rice milk. I will ask the dietician if there is anything I can use instead of yoghurt. Bookmarking this post for sure. Perfect timing thanks Kyrstie 🙂

    • Kyrstie February 9, 2012, 9:23 am

      Thanks for visiting. I am glad you have found it helpful. We use soy based yoghurt and milk for me but I understand that soy is also an issue for many people also…I does make for a challenge!

  • Aroha @ Colours of Sunset February 9, 2012, 8:25 am

    a friend of mine has a son with an egg allergy, I will pass these along! It is so hard finding things that are egg-free but also taste good! thanks for sharing, and yes, I too am thankful my son has no (known) allergies!

    • Kyrstie February 9, 2012, 9:24 am

      Thanks Aroha, I really appreciate you passing on the information. Kyrstie

    What a great resource post Kyrstie. Off to share this on my facebook page, I know many of my readers have kid with allergies.

    • Kyrstie February 9, 2012, 4:00 pm

      Thanks Nicole, I really appreciate you sharing on your fabulous page.

  • Laney @ Crash Test Mummy February 9, 2012, 1:29 pm

    Great idea to have some allergy friendly recipes handy, even if your kids don’t suffer. Our Kindergarten is nut-free so we keep the nearby park nut-free too as all the kids play and snack there. We eat a lot of nuts so I need some new snack ideas. Thanks!

    • Kyrstie February 10, 2012, 7:02 am

      Thanks Laney, I hope you find some new recipes.

  • Jess February 9, 2012, 3:49 pm

    Oh allergies are awful things. We have dairy intolerance in our house and that’s hard enough, I’m grateful it’s nothing worse!

    • Kyrstie February 10, 2012, 7:04 am

      Hi Jess, I have a dairy intolerance but find it is mostly not too difficult to manage. I would be keen to hear of any good dairy free resources you access. Kyrstie

  • Mrs Savage February 9, 2012, 6:11 pm

    Great idea, I used to struggle at occasional care with some egg and nut free recipes. I think my 3 year old might even eat these 🙂

    • Kyrstie February 10, 2012, 7:02 am

      Excellent Mrs Savage, thanks for visiting.

  • Linda (Me) February 9, 2012, 6:44 pm

    Gosh, I didn’t realise just how allergic some children are. I am very grateful that my daughter has no allergies.
    Have a great Thursday !

  • katesaysstuff February 9, 2012, 7:26 pm

    What a fabulous idea Kyrstie!

    We are very lucky with no allergies to worry about ourselves, but ER have a number of friends we need to be careful around.

    Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Kyrstie February 10, 2012, 7:01 am

      Thanks Kate. Thank you for hosting the link up and allowing me the opportunity to share. K

  • Ceejay February 10, 2012, 1:00 am

    As a parent of children with food intolerances and one child with two distinct allergies to foods, it’s a challenge to find suitable recipes that work for the lowest common denominator!
    I look forward to checking out the links you’ve posted today,
    Thank YOU!

    • Kyrstie February 10, 2012, 7:00 am

      I am happy to provide some information Ceejay. It is always nice to try some new recipes, the standard ones can get a bit boring after a while – especially if you are limited by ingredients. Good luck.
