Easter lunch box treat that is allergy free
March 21, 2017
This allergy-friendly vegan slice has saved me from getting stressed about Easter this year. Late last year my son was diagnosed as intolerant to dairy, egg and gluten. Since then my cooking skills have been stretched to the limit. Rather than doing separate baking for my children, they both get the same, revised diet. It has been an ongoing battle to try to come up with a few recipes for baked treats they both like. It is difficult to get much of approval from my youngest son! Finally, this one has come up a winner. I was on the verge of never baking for the lunch boxes again… With Easter impending this will give the kids a treat without my son feeling like he is missing out.
Last week I came across some dairy free chocolate buttons so grabbed them to try. The recipe is sweetened by the included fruit and a little maple syrup. We collected the first of the figs from our tree on the weekend so they were added in. This recipe is also nut-free so can be added to the school lunch boxes.
This recipe was a winner at our home, across all of the family. I hope your family enjoys it also.
