Food Allergies

My FAV quick, easy, and allergy-safe muffins

April 27, 2022

Breakfast can be a challenge when you are feeding kids with food allergies or on the Elimination Diet. Here is an easy breakfast food when you are in a hurry.

Navigating food allergies can be pretty difficult at first. This blog serves as a guide for parents of children with food allergies.  Food allergy moms have a lot to worry about. Being alone on this journey is not one of them! 


On busy weeks, I like to cook a week’s worth of muffins for breakfast in one round. That way, my kids can grab breakfast quickly throughout the week, without me having to check ingredients. This muffin recipe does start with a box mix but otherwise, does not call for anything too crazy that most allergy-safe kitchens do not already have stocked. Pair with coconut yogurt and a banana and you have a complete breakfast to hold those bellies over!

The muffin mix is King Arthur’s GF Muffin mix. We are able to purchase this mix from Target. This mix is very versatile. I have made chocolate chip and blueberry muffins as per the directions other than using an Egg Replacer. The girls really enjoy those. However, our favorite (hands down) is this box recipe but instead of using egg replacer, use a full can of pumpkin. Also, add safe white chocolate chips. Thankfully, more stores are carrying safe white chocolate chips. We have used the Toll-House safe brand as well as the Wal-Mart safe brand.*

Yes, pumpkin is typically reserved for Fall…but we have allergy kids so does it even matter?!? As long as it’s safe and tasty, win, win. For the record, I have a hard time saving these for my kids and I’m VERY picky when it comes to my breakfast.

A quick note on the diary substitute: We use creamy vanilla oat milk in our recipes. However, keep in mind-dairy alternatives typically run thinner than milk. Start with a smaller amount of your alternative than the recipe calls for. From there, add more incrementally as needed.

I'm Lauren, your new Food Allergy mom friend.

My great grandmother made sure I had her peanut butter cookie recipe memorized before the age of 10. Good southern food was part of my upbringing.  NOW, I am the mother of two daughters with severe food allergies and a GI disease. That means cooking without eggs, dairy, wheat, soy, peanuts, and tree nuts. I can remember thinking, 'What am I going to feed a kid that is allergic to everything?!?'. However, after years of my youngest being on the elimination diet...I can assure you, living with food allergies is doable.
