Egg Free Kinder Snacks
February 9, 2012
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.
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.
See Hints and Tips below for measurements if you are adding other ingredients as I have done
