Nut-Free, Gluten-Free St. Patrick’s Day Recipes
While I go by “The Allergy Free Life” on this website, my given name is Fiona, which may giveaway my Irish heritage. As the daughter of a mother who was born in Ireland, I take my Irish roots quite seriously. Every year when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around I get excited as it’s a chance for me to eat my favorite Irish food! It’s been a bit more difficult the past few years due to my gluten-intolerance, but this year will be a different story! Here are some of my favorite nut-free, gluten-free, and a few dairy-free St. Patrick’s Day recipes I’ll be trying out this year.
Green Smoothie Pancakes from Runnin Srilankan: I love kicking off the day with a gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, protein-filled breakfast. These pancakes are green from the added spinach, and are very nutritious! With only a few ingredients including spinach, bananas, eggs, brown rice flour, and protein powder, these hotcakes will fuel your day of Irish celebrations. Get the recipe here.
Top o’the Morning Lucky Charms Pancakes: These are 100% nut-free and 100% truly unhealthy, but how can you say no to this beautiful, colorful mountain of sugar? To make this recipe gluten-free, swap the Bisquick with a gluten-free pancake mix. Get the recipe here.
Gluten-Free Irish Soda Bread Scones from Our Four Forks: I LOVE Irish Soda bread. I prefer it in Ireland, where it is made with much less sugar than the bread I’ve tried in America. I love that these are not to sweet, and are in scone form rather than an entire loaf of bread. This recipe is gluten-free, nut-free, and dairy-free, and calls for raisins or berries as a filling, and is topped off with raspberry jam. Delicious! Get the recipe here.
Corned Beef Hash Baked Eggs from Cooking and Beer: Corned beef is sinfully delicious, add in eggs, peppers, potatoes, and herbs and you have the perfect meal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! This is also a great option if you have leftover corned beef from St. Patrick’s Day you want to get rid of in a tasty manner! Get the recipe here.
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Shepherd’s Pie from Noshtastic: Shepherd’s Pie is comfort food at its finest. Many traditional recipes call for flour, but this has an easy replacement of arrowroot powder. If you wanted to make a lighter version, you could also replace the lamb/beef with ground turkey. I also love to make this and freeze leftovers to be eaten later. What a treat! Get the recipe here.
Colcannon from Simply Recipes: Luckily for me, potatoes are naturally gluten-free, nut-free, and dairy-free! The Irish love serving up potatoes in a variety of different ways. This traditional recipe is a mixture of mashed potatoes and kale or cabbage. Lighten it up by removing the milk and replacing the butter with earth balance. Get the recipe here.
Slow Cooker Corned Beef Stew from The Recipe Critic: It wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without corned beef stew! This gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free recipe cooks in your slow cooker on low heat for 8-10 hours, which allows the flavors to truly set in. Make sure to remove the Worcestershire sauce to make this recipe gluten-free. Get the recipe here.
Gluten-Free Lucky Charms Ice Crispy Treats: What could be more decadent than Lucky Charm Rice Crispy Treats? Making them into an ice cream sandwich of course! Want to make these dairy free? Use coconut milk ice cream instead! Get the recipe here.
Boozy Lucky Charm Cereal Milkshake with Marshmallow Frosting by How Sweet it Is: What’s better than a cereal milkshake? A cereal milkshake with a little bit of alcohol. Make this recipe dairy-free by swapping with coconut milk and ice cream. Get the recipe here.
Gluten-Free Lucky Charms Cake from Alana Jones-Mann: This recipe is quite simple, a delicious vanilla buttercream cake (make it gluten-free if needed), covered in bright lucky charms marshmallows. Don’t want to make the cake yourself? No judgement! Buy a vanilla cake from the store and only complete the marshmallow application portion of the instructions! Get the recipe here.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
