    When I tell people that my brother has a nut allergy, they look at me like I am crazy! I grew up loving peanut butter everything and eating tons of PB&J sandwiches, Reese’s etc. but we always had to be extra cautious in the kitchen for Seth just incase.

    Nowadays there are a lot of schools that don’t allow nut-based products in them and more and more people have nut allergies. This can definitely be a struggle trying to eat healthier since many things have almond flours or nut butters in them. But after testing recipes for the past few years, I have a handful of recipes on the blog that are healthy and delicious (at least I think so!) while also are still nut-free.

    I find it is really easy to also sub most recipes to make them nut free-friendly. You can use tahini or sunflower butter instead of nut-based butters like peanut and almond. Gluten-free oat flour and spelt flour are two of my personal faves to go to for nut-free flours (and coconut too if you can eat coconut-based products!). Any recipes on my blog that call for almond milk or any nut milk can easily be subbed 1:1 with coconut milk, oat milk, hemp milk, anything!

    When it comes to brands, I love that Enjoy Life Food’s is free of the top allergens (including nuts) so anyone with severe allergies can eat these products. Their baking chocolate is my absolute fave!

    Below you will find a handful of my go-to nut-free recipes when I’m making something for anyone with a nut allergy or even if they just don’t enjoy the taste. There is a mix of cookies, cinnamon rolls and various other sweet treats for you guys to whip up!

    If someone is allergic to coconut oil, can butter or ghee be used as a substitute?

    Thank you very much for these recipes! I cannot wait to try them out! I’m hoping you can help me out with two things. First, I LOVE Hu chocolate, but I didn’t think any of their chocolate is nut free. Doesn’t their packaging say made in a facility with peanuts and tree nuts? Secondly, my son is also allergic to sesame seeds. Is their a substitute for tahini for your receipts? Thank you. Why much!

    Thank you so much for making nut-free dessert options that are healthy! I have a severe nut allergy and I have a hard time finding clean recipes that don’t use nut butters or nut flours. KEEP IT UP!!!
