I recently got hooked on dried sliced mango. They are delicious. Also, my dad just sent me some wasabi flavored seaweed. Sounds strange but they are small pieces almost like a chip. He got them at Trader Joe's. However any Asian market might have something like it. The sesame oil only ones are good too.

If you want something sweet, I second the recommendation for Elana's Pantry. Are you OK with nuts? She uses mostly almond flour. I make her chocolate chip cookies often and they always come out great. She also has a recipe for brownies using mostly almond butter that might work for you ... I haven't tried it but I read the reviews they were almost 100% positive.

Have you tried Chex's gluten free cereal? I'm pretty sure you'd be able to have at least the rice chex. Chexpartymix.com has great recipes that you could make only using rice chex. If you've found pretzels you can have, add some of those. You can also add popcorn, dried fruit, that type of stuff and make your own trail mix.
Gluten free chex has been a lifesaver for me. :)

I was thinking about the chocolate chip problem and remembered a video that I saw on this website: www.lillianstestkitchen.com. She makes her own chips - melts pure chocolate, adds some agave, spreads it on a cookie sheet and freezes for a few minutes to harden, then cuts it into tiny chunks. An extra step than just opening the bag but I bet it tastes amazing!

Thanks! I haven't found any chocolate chips that are dairy and nut free...but that doesn't mean that there are not any! ;)


Enjoy Life makes a good chocolate chip, and chocolate nibs. gluten-free/df/nutfree.

Miss Vickie's makes a good potato chip too, for a snack - I tell myself because they're made with sea salt, it's ok, and healthy. :D Rice cakes (with sea salt - ha!)are good bedtime snack for me, now that I have given up my beloved popcorn. Honestly, I miss my popcorn more than a soft baguette!

A have a couple of ideas that are variations on fruit -- but they would be something a little different. I make a drink in the blender that is like a slush with fresh or frozen fruit. I use enough water to puree the fruit, then add ice to make it really thick. We like to eat it with a spoon. My favorite combination is peaches and strawberries, but you could use whatever you like.

We also like smoothies. I use almond milk (but any milk substitute will do) and bananas as the base and go from there adding berries sometimes, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices others and my favorite dark chocolate. I use frozen fruit when I have it and still add ice because we like ours really thick -- like ice cream. I know soy and almond milk would be out for you but if you can tolerate rice or hemp milk you might try those. There is also a product called Dari Free that I think is made from potatoes -- but I haven't tried it.

Thanks for the idea for the blender drink. I just bought a bunch of blueberries and strawberries. I think i'll give it a try. :)

Can you have carob chips instead of chocolate? It's been a time since I have checked ingredients but I remember them being fairly "free".

I think you are going to have to work with your own flour mixes. We are running into the same problem being no dairy, no soy, no egg, no this, no that...

I believe "Yummy Earth Organics" may fit your list for sweets. You can get the hard candies or suckers.
