Ideas For (Relatively) Easy Nut And Dairy Free Xmas Baking

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to decide what to make for Christmas. I tend not to make a lot because, to be quite honest, I eat it - way too much of it.  I do want to make  afew fun foods for my boys this year. We are gluten-free, nut-free, and dairy-free.  I use coconut milks and earth's balance in lieu of dairy so I can make substitutions if you have a good idea.

 

All I have planned so far are brownies, cinnamon buns ( from Notme! http://www.thebakingbeauties.com/2011/01/best-gluten-free-cinnamon-buns-or-rolls.html),and some loaves (banana and pumpkin).  My mom is doing gingerbread with my boys (bless her).  Fun cookies or squares that kids would like is what I mostly want.

 

Thanks  :)

Hubs threw together some gluten-free stuff early one and it ended up being really good.  I don't know what to call it, Chex Balls???

 

  • 3 cups Rice Chex Cereal
    3 cups Chocolate Chex Cereal
    1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter--Optional
    1 cup Light Corn Syrup
    1 cup Granulated Sugar

 

 

Combine the the corn syrup and sugar until it lightly boils. Add peanut butter until smooth. Mix in cereals until coated completely. Form into balls and place on wax paper to cool. No need to frost because the chocolate Chex gives you the chocolate taste. Enjoy!

 

The above amounts are approximate and easy to divide or multiply as needed.  They are really good warm :D  You could add some peppermint something to these too probably in lieu of the peanut butter for a minty taste.

When you say dairy free does that include butter? If you're OK with butter, I just made a delicious toffee that my family could not get enough of.

Have you done any merange cookies with choc chips? You can use food coloring to make them green or sugar sprinkles on the top to make them red or green, etc. I can get you a recipe we use tomorrow if you want? My BIl makes them with crushed candy canes instead of chocolate chips. Yum!

Flourless chocolate cookies
 
 
Mix 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa, 2 tsp. cornstarch, 1/4 tsp. salt, 2 egg whites (not beaten). 
Should be thick enough to form balls; if not, add more sugar. Should be sticky and form a imperfect ball. 
Stir in 1 cup nuts (unsalted peanuts, pecans, or walnuts.) Form into 15 balls, place on parchment paper, and bake 16-19 minutes in a 300 oven until crackly and shiny. Cool completely. . They have a sort of crisp-meringue outside, and a soft, chewy inside, 
 
Instead of nuts, you could use Enjoy Life Chocolate chips or some other type of chips or chunks of candy cane (probably melt a bit)

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350.
  2. In a food processor combine all ingredients.
  3. Scoop into muffin tin make sure to use liners or you will never get them out, personal experience! You can also use silicone molds they work great. The batter will be VERY sticky you might want to wet the spoon to make is easier.
  4. I topped mine with cocao nibs to add a bit of zip.
  5. Place muffin pan in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes.
  6. Wait until these are completely cooled before removing from the pan.
Ingredients
  1. 1 cup creamy almond butter (or nut butter of your choice)
  2. 2 very ripe bananas
  3. 1/4 cup maple syrup
  4. 1/3 cup cocao powder
  5. Optional cocao nibs
  6. Peanut butter, optional
  7. Agave syrup drizzled on top, optional
  8. Shredded coconut on top, optional

My sister made these and they are pretty good.  They didn't rise a lot, so maybe a teaspoon of baking powder would help that.

Do rice krispie treats or use the recipe on the back of the enjoy life chocolate chips for chocolate chip cookies. I also think godairyfree.com has good recipes that can be changed according to diet.  I made the fruit filled oat squares and they were good.  They were a bit crumbly but tasted similar to pop tarts. I substituted one of the starches for sorghum flour.  Hope this helps.

All really good ideas, guys!  Thank you!  I'm going to get my kids to look at this with me tomorrow morning and we'll pick out a few to make.

 

Mmmm, I'm getting hungry reading these recipes.  :)
