I have a new obsession and its name is fonut. Baked and/or steamed and never fried, fonuts replicate the donut taste you know and love, but give it a modern spin, with many gluten-free and vegan options.

Of all the puddings in the world, the variety that has won my heart is rice pudding. After transitioning into a gluten-free diet, I discovered an even deeper love for this sweet treat which is naturally gluten-free, and nut-free! As today is National Rice Pudding Day I wanted to share a few of my favorite rice pudding recipes from around the internet.
I first stumbled upon 88 Acres last fall when looking for a granola bar that was gluten-free and didn’t contain nuts. My search came up fruitless, it appeared to me that granola seemed to go hand in hand with nuts (lots of them) and most often also traces of gluten. I felt like I’d never be able to find safe granola…until I discovered the company 88 Acres.
Headed to Tofino, British Columbia? Read on for my bite-sized guide with the best gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free spots to hit during your time in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
During my trip to Edinburgh, Scotland last month I visited The Royal Yacht Britannia. I was expecting to get a dose of history and see a beautiful yacht, but hadn’t realized that the visit would also offer a wonderful allergy-free dining experience. Not only would I finally be able to get my high tea fix, but it would be in the nautical residence of the Queen! This discovery was truly the icing on the gluten-free cake!
There’s more to baking than gluten. During my trip to the United Kingdom last month I was lucky enough to visit Beyond Bread, which I’d heard was the spot to find the best gluten-free treats in London.
It’s no secret I have a sweet tooth, but I love when I can find something that feels a bit sinful to eat and figure out a recipe to make it healthier and allergy-free. After going gluten-free a few years ago waffles seemed like a breakfast item I could safely say goodbye to. Other than buckwheat, most waffles aren’t gluten-free and honestly, while delicious, are not particularly healthy. This changed after I discovered a recipe that was full of protein, and free of allergens: Power Protein Waffles!
If there’s one thing this world needs, it’s more nut-free bakeries. While I’d like them to be gluten-free and nut-free, I have more than enough gluten-free spots to pick from and want my husband to feel the joy of being able to select any item from a bakery display case and feel the security of knowing that it’s 100% safe for him to eat. If only we lived in Canada! Sullivan & Bleeker Baking Co. in Toronto, Canada is 100% nut-free bakery that offers homemade candy, cookies, cupcakes, and jarcakes.
Evoking memories of batter-covered fingers, icing sugar clouds and the sweet smell of fresh baked treats, Toronto-based Short & Sweet Bakeshop treats are handcrafted using only the finest ingredients including pure vanilla, Belgian chocolate, fresh berries, and mouthwatering oranges, lemons and limes. Topped with sweet buttercream, colorful sprinkles, and Belgian chocolate shavings, Short & Sweet baked goods are also 100% peanut and tree-nut free, and offer gluten-free cupcakes as well!
True Story: one of my favorite things in the world is exploring supermarkets when I’m traveling abroad. During my trip to Rio De Janerio in Brazil last December I discovered a variety of amazing gluten-free treats. My favorite find wasn’t a native Brazilian product, it was a gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free loaf of bread all the way from Loveland, Colorado!
March 2nd marks “National Banana Cream Pie Day” which seemed like an appropriate time for me to highlight a few of my favorite nut-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free variations on this classic flavor profile. Everyone knows how to make a classic Banana Cream Pie, but these recipes take it to a whole new level. Enjoy!
