I am getting tired of fruit being my only snack. Are there any cookies or mixes or anything that is gluten, soy, dairy and corn and nut free. Xanthan gum is from corn and guar gum makes me sick. I can't find anything without the gums in it. Any suggestions are appreciated!

King Arthur flour is free of those. They have recipes on their site and they talk about making subs.

Living Without magazine has lots of recipes with subs. Have you tried them?

I have looked at King Arthur before. I didn't see anything without xanthan gum but i'll check again!

I'll have to check out that magazine again. I use to subscribe to it but it ran out.

Thanks

Their FLOUR mix will be ok. Their cake, cookie mix won't be.

You don't need gums in cookies - trust me.

What about brownies? I think my brownie recipe will work, too.

Thanks! I haven't found any chocolate chips that are dairy and nut free...but that doesn't mean that there are not any! Also, can I use olive oil in the recipes? If so, I would love to have them. ;)

Thanks! I'll email them to see if they are corn free. I have to watch corn as carefully as gluten.

Thanks! Coconut gives me hives..Thanks for the suggestion though. Hopefully it will help someone else.

Enjoy LIfe is a no go on corn. Per my corn allergen forum.

I guess I will just have to have leftovers for snacks. I was craving something sweet..I ended up making cream of rice (i make my own by grinding rice in my blender) and put 3 heaping tablespoons of brown sugar on it. It's pretty good.

Does anyone have any other ideas?

How about making your own chocolate chips? This recipe uses butter or coconut oil but I made chocolate for homemade Reese's cups and used palm shortening. is there a solid fat you can use? What about LARD?

http://heavenlyhomem...chips-in-detail

******
Substitute as needed for the recipe. I really font know how it will work with olive oil, etc. Margarine would be fine. Leave out the nuts.

Brownies:

1 stick butter or equivalent (I reduce this by 1/4 for gluten-free; you may need less if you use a liquid)
1c sugar
2 eggs
4 tbsp cocoa
3/4 c flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c nuts

Seperate and whip egg whites. Set aside.

Mix fat with sugar and egg yolk. Add dry ingredients. Fold in egg nuts then egg whites.

Pour into greased and floured 9x12 pan.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. in an electric oven 325, 335 in Corning ware. There's a similar recipe I have that bakes at 250 for 60 minutes. I'd go low instead of high.

Frosting

1/2 stock melted butter
1 tbsp cocoa
1/2 box powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Melt butter and add cocoa. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add a bit of milk as needed to moisten and blend to desired texture. Frost brownies when cool enough to touch.

What about non-sweet things like lunchmeat or pepperoni? Hummus and carrots if you can eat sesame? Refried beans and rice chips? Hard-boiled eggs? Pickled herring? Mashed potatoes? Might sound silly, but all good snacks to tide you over till the next meal. My snacks are often just small quantities of meal food.

I roasted three fat beets, a red onion and a fennel bulb today. I cut them up in large bite size chunks and stuck them on a 2 cookie sheets lined with parchment papaer, drizzled some olive oil and S&P on them, and stuck them in the oven for 35 minutes at 375 degrees. They're the bomb! I like those roasted root veggies on their own at room temp or on a bed of lettuce with goat cheese and balsamic vinegrette for a salad. Veggies always taste better when you roast them, and you can puree them to make them into a dip. (Roasted cauliflower and onion with a bit of olive oil and s&p is over the top!) It's good with crackers (I've made my own, they were a pain, but I couldn't do corn or chips then, or any additives), but the veggie dips are also good with fresh carrot or celery sticks, or radishes.

I like a stick blender for the ease of it. (Same with the parchment paper, let the roasted veggies cool, pick up the edges of the paper and funnel them into a bowl, and whirl away. No mayo, no wierd stuff, just olive oil (or whatever oil that suits you) and roasted veggies. It's surprisingly good. I'm off beans at the moment, but I went through a bean dip phase. The good thing is that the bean dip had protein, and that's what you're prbably craving if you're hungry all the time. You could rinse a can of white beans and whirl them up with roasted veggies. I'm pretty sure that would be good stuffed in celery sticks . If you can do eggs, (hard boiled) that's another option. Hope my suggestions are helpful and you feel better soon.

This isn't a mix but pretty easy to make if you can have pumpkin and eggs. How about this?

Mock Chocolate Cake
1/4 c. canned pumpkin
2 TBSP cocoa powder
1 egg white
2 pkts sugar (or sweetener of choice)
2 drops of vanilla extract
pinch salt

Blend all ingredients together, put in a coffee mug & nuke in microwave for 90 seconds.

If you can tolerate eggs, you can make bite-sized meringues (even with maple syrup as a sweetener) with different flavors. A batch using 2 egg whites makes about 2 cookie sheets worth of bite-sized ones & they keep nicely in an air tight container. Single bite-sized ones fit in the mouth so there's not crumbs flying around when you eat them. :)
