Finding Safe Recipes
Baking on restricted diets can be challenging and it is easy to get bored making the same few safe meals day after day. Many of us have spent time searching for new safe recipes, possibly spending hours looking at all the delicious food allergy recipe blogs by creative chefs. It’s nice to be able to add a physical cookbook to your kitchen shelf too – and they make great gifts! Luckily many of those wonderful, gluten free, dairy free, egg free, peanut or nut free chefs have published books.
We found many helpful food allergy friendly cookbooks addressing a variety of restricted diets. The cookbooks in the list below eliminate at least one of the major allergens – tree nuts, peanuts, dairy, eggs, soy, fish, shellfish, wheat or gluten from their recipes. This list was compiled as a starting point to find some safe recipes; always read labels! If you know of any other food allergy friendly cook books contact us we would love to add it!

Vegan Cook Books (Dairy & Egg Free)
If you are avoiding eggs or dairy in your diet due to an allergy or intolerance you may want to check out vegan and vegetarian cookbooks. Since vegans do not use any animal products all recipes will be free from eggs and dairy. Vegans have found some really great ways to replace the leavening/binding effects of eggs and the creaminess of dairy.
