Sugar-free, dairy-free, wheat-free recipes?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My sister just started on an elimination diet from a naturopath she started seeing. She cannot have dairy, wheat or sugar. She's coming over for a visit and I want to make a little treat for her. Any ideas or suggestions or links?

Fruit smoothies, just all fruit. Depending on how sweet it is, you can put it into a ice cream maker and freeze to a sorbet consistency.

I've made these brownies before using agave nectar instead of the unrefined sugar it calls for. The recipe is from Martha Stewart. They were pretty good. If you make them for her, make them the day before. They always taste better to me the next day.

Allergen-Free Brownie Bites
Makes about 5 dozen mini brownies
1/2 cup canola oil, plus more for pans
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons garbanzo and fava bean flour
1/4 cup potato starch
2 tablespoons arrowroot
1 cup unrefined sugar or 10 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons agave nectar
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup store-bought unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup brewed coffee or hot water
2 cups vegan gluten-free chocolate chips, such as Tropical Source
Directions
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Brush 3 dozen mini-muffin pans with oil; set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, potato starch, arrowroot, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt, and unsweetened cocoa powder; set aside. In a large bowl, mix together applesauce, 1/2 cup canola oil, and vanilla. Slowly add flour mixture, stirring to combine. Stir in coffee until it forms a batter. Fold in chocolate chips.
Place 1 tablespoon batter into each prepared muffin cup. Transfer muffin pans to oven, and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack before unmolding.

Any of the recipes from http://www.paleofood.com will fit your criteria by default.

You can also look at raw vegan desserts, which should also fit all those criteria by default.

Thanks everyone! I ended up not making a treat for her that day, but I may still. My mom made her some sugar free spelt muffins she can eat. I'll try to find the recipe to post later. I actually forgot about this thread until I saw it in the Mothering newsletter! Now I feel famous.

Definitely going to check out that paleo link.

Do know that spelt is WHEAT? Be careful - check with your sister on that!

My hubby is celiac so we've had a lot of learnin' to do!

Check out glutenfreeforum.com We've found some really healthy recipes there. (Among not so healthy too ... just to warn you)

Actually we discussed that and we were confused. We concluded that it wasn't wheat, so I'll mention that to her, thanks (it is gluten free though, right?). What about kamut?

Spelt and Kamut are both ancient forms of wheat. Some people with wheat allergies react to spelt and kamut, but some don't.

Both spelt and kamut do have gluten.
