15 Delectable Allergy Friendly – Gluten free, Vegan and Dairy free Christmas Cookies
Share with friends
We’ve got a family of varying dietary requirements, allergies and intolerances. Three kids who are dairy free, myself who is dairy free and gluten free… kids friends who are vegan and my husband who shouldn’t eat dairy, but does! … Dairy doesn’t sit well with us and gluten tends to cause all sorts of inflammatory issues for some of us as well. So we try our best to eliminate these things where we can from our diets.
Christmas is NOT SO EASY! But I’ve come to realise that with a little planning you can have plenty of allergy friendly, vegan, dairy free and gluten free offerings during the holidays. We have vegan BBQ foods on hand, coconut yogurts, vegan cheeses for pastas and one dish bakes and milk and flour alternatives for all the things!
I wanted to do a bit of a catch all for some absolutely delectable cookie recipes for the holiday season so all you vegan, gluten free and dairy free folks dont miss out. These are the best of the best and won’t leave any kids (or grown ups!) with allergies left out.
