Dairy free oat biscuits [DF, GF, SF]

When making dairy free items I’m always pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to convert basic baking items. For butter, we typically substitute with Vitalite (the sunflower one) and for milk, we use almond milk, which is our preferred dairy free alternative. These dairy free oat biscuits have been a favourite in our home for a couple of years now. They are simple to make, fairly cheap and you can freeze the dough or the leftovers too. The ingredients I have used are dairy free, soya free (soya lecithin may appear in the specific ingredients I used) and gluten free. Please ensure you always check the ingredients you are using, as ingredients may vary by brand. Scroll down near the end of this recipe for the recipe card to get started right away! If you want a version of these biscuits with dairy and gluten then check out these homemade oat biscuits.

Gluten-free jam drops (AD) [DF, SF, GF]

AD. My little daughter Daisy absolutely loves a sweet treat. As she spends 3 days a week at Nursery she is becoming used to the mindset of having something for ‘pudding’ after lunch AND dinner. As I want to encourage her to eat all sorts of foods I sometimes use a little sweet treat as an encouragement for her to eat all of her vegetables or her protein sources. I have made her gluten-free jam drops, using wonderful Santa Rosa jams, that I ordered from the Ciao Gusto Italian Deli at Ocado.

Review: Get Your Kids to Eat Anything (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted this book in exchange for coverage. As Mum to a child with FPIES, and multiple food allergies, I know how hard it can be to get your little one to eat well. When you have a number of food groups that you need to eliminate, due to allergies, and then your child becomes a picky eater, it can be soul destroying. I’ve spent so many hours cooking meals and hoping against all hope that my daughter Daisy will eat them. Recently I was fortunate enough to be gifted an advance copy of *Get Your Kids to Eat Anything, by my lovely friend Emily Leary, from A Mummy Too. Of course, I wanted to love this book, as it’s been created by my friend, so I started reading it and I was blown away! We’ve been using the book for a couple of weeks already, on and off. The 5-phase programme, designed to help change the way your family thinks about food, has been absolutely fantastic so far.

Slow cooker lasagne recipe [GF]

A lasagne is a bit of a classic dinner in our home. We eat it every few weeks and it is a great way to get lots of vegetables into little ones. Our daughter Daisy loves a lasagne and when I prepare this version I typically make it GF and DF. Sometimes I make ours using standard products that are not freefrom and then I make Daisy a couple of individual lasagnes. Today I want to share with you our slow cooker lasagne recipe. This recipe is gluten free but can easily be made dairy free and soya free using a few small changes.
