Special Diet Recipes

Allergy Free!

Many readers have specific dietary concerns (such as allergies), and therefore I’m now tagging my recipe posts according to the dietary requirements they meet and the allergens they do not contain.

If a recipe is tagged under one of the following, it means there is an option for the recipe to fit into that particular category:

Why no egg-free or milk-free categories? All of my recipes are free of eggs and dairy!

    Where’s the nut-free love? 😉

    PS – Peanut Butter Fudge Babies taste really good when made with soynut butter or peabutter. Yummy!

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      I decided against doing a nut-free tag because I don’t know about cross-contamination in products that say “processed in a factory where peanuts are produced” or something like that. I didn’t want to confuse anyone or mislead them. Also, I didn’t know if people would count coconut as a nut.

      • Jennifer JCD says

        Good call on your part. It’s nice to know you are so allergy-aware. Coconut isn’t a nut, but the FDA includes it on their list. (Probably because most brands of coconut are processed in facilities with nuts.) Thanks for the update. 🙂

        Too bad, since my allergies are nuts (except peanuts) and coconut. I long for recipes without them since I often find a good one then have to leave it because the texture just doesn’t work the same! May contain nuts doesn’t bother me though.

        • Donna Hobbs says

          Yvette, depending on your allergy, I substitute Sunflower Seed spread(depending where you live its called different things in different parts of the world) in place of nut butters and maybe you could use another type of oil instead of coconut oil in some recipes. My daughter can tolerate a little coconut but I also can use ghee (reclarified butter). I often have to use substitutes as my daughter is allergic to gluten, dairy, eggs, nuts and soy!

        Please do a nut-free list! Even if you have to write a disclaimer about cross-contamination or anything (although I would hope anyone with a food allergy would have the sense to read the labels on ingredients before putting them in a recipe!). It’s so frustrating to try and find healthy recipes that don’t have nut flours or butters in…

        • Unofficial CCK Helper says

          Have you ever tried Sunbutter? Or another nut free butter like Peabutter? They work really well in many of Katie’s recipes that call for peanut butter!

          • Lucy says

            Ooh I haven’t seen those before, but they sound promising! I’ve seen sneaky chef no-nut butter online but I’m not sure I can get it in the UK without paying extortionate shipping costs. I’ll have to keep an eye out for those two next time I’m shopping – thanks for the tip!

    I’m on the most crazy elimination diet at the moment because of some illnesses and your website is a lifesaver! Being gluten, dairy, egg and sugar free is hard but not when you can have your amazing desserts! I often trick my family and friends that your desserts are “real” and they think they are better than the sugar laden foods.

    I am so happy right now – I can’t even explain it. My son is allergic to milk, eggs, wheat, and tree nuts. It is so hard to feed him and I have found SO many recipes and ideas off of your site. I am SO extremely grateful. I have been stuck on what to give him and feeling so bad on him missing out on so many foods. These recipes are a blessing to me! Thank you!

      • Emily A says

        I just have to second this comment! I have a son allergic to milk and eggs and your recipes give him desserts that others eat but are safe for him. We’ve loved everything we have made and I actually have your cornbread in the oven now for the third time this month. Thank you so much for your dedication to this site…I’m very thankful for it!

        I also have a son with severe food allergies (milk, eggs, tree nuts) who sees his little sister eat anything she wants, and it’s heartbreaking. I make a lot of foods from scratch (much healthier, anyway!) and use a lot of vegan recipes. Thank you SO MUCH for your site; I can’t wait to bake with my son this weekend! (And the recipes are great for me too, since I’ve been eating clean for the past six months…with the exception of chocolate…but not anymore!!!)
        Thanks, Katie!! You ROCK!!!! 🙂

    Well, Chocolate Covered Katie, YOU ROCK MY SOCKS! I am so thankful that I found your sight. I’m on a diet called Paleo, which is gluten free/sugar free/dairy free, and it is SO hard to find desert items that are fulfilling as well as delicious. I have a whole list of items from your blog here that I just can’t wait to try. Thanks again, and keep all these amazing recipes coming 🙂

    Here’s a super challenge for you… Low-fat (under 7ish grams per serving) AND low-sugar (even agave, etc), due to severe medical restrictions. (Dairy-free and gluten-free are ideal, but seem to be impossible!) I am pretty decent in the kitchen, but this has pushed me to my limits. Would love any suggestions

    For Eli: I read on some fancy-scmancy cooking site that you could cut back on the sugar in a recipe by increasing the vanilla (assuming it calls for vanilla) because the vanilla fools your tastebuds. They claimed as much as half of the sugar could be cut but you’d have to test it yourself. Also, I have been told that in a traditional recipe using sugar, it is actually counted as a liquid so if you try to cut too much of it, you will need to take that into consideration. And you need to understand the effects of alternate sweeteners too, just switching out refined sugar doesn’t make it a total freebie.

    One of my flavor-enhancing tricks for cooking with chocolate is to add a tiny amount of almond extract, and I mean a tiny amount – unless you want it to have that ‘cherry’ flavor – for a 9 inch cheesecake, I add less than 1/4 of a teaspoon.

    Thanks Katie and Renae! I have actually been using things like butter flavor (also in minute amounts), almond, cinnamon, etc – as well as things like mesquite flour, powdered espresso, etc. Great trick on the vanilla. I have been using some fancy vanilla paste as well so that the flavor profile is deeper. I am also experimenting with using stevia and agave – both in very small amounts to try to get a flavor that is not dominated by the taste of the stevia. I totally love the cookie dough recipe. Mesquite flour worked really well to add depth. I think that next time I might try including some ground cacao nibs and a bit of powder too.

    • Michelle says

      What a stunning blog, well done! Stumbled onto it earlier this evening and have been drooling over your recipes. I’ve been a vegetarian for more than 20 years, but are toying with the idea of going completely vegan and to incorporate more raw recipes into my diet (and those of my children too). Your recipes make it seem a whole lot less daunting!

      Just on the sweetener front… I’ve seen raw chefs use Medjool dates to sweeten their recipes. Apparently the taste is not empowering at all and it adds great sweetness and obviously some good nutrition too. (Simply blend destoned Medjool dates with some distilled water and keep it refrigerated in a sealed jar to add by the spoonful to recipes that call for sweetener.) I suppose one could just blend the dates directly into the recipe as well. I think it would be awesome added to your fudge recipes.

    I’m on a very restricted diet. No cane sugar, no honey, no agave, no maple sugar, plus a lot of other no’s. I’m using Stevia in the raw, since erythritol is on my list of no’s as well. All dairy products are out of the question for me as well. Coconut is also on my list of no items. I really, really, really, really want to try the Sugar-Free Chocolate Fudge recipe, but it calls for coconut butter. What else can I use in place of coconut butter? All dairy products are out of the question for me as well. I hope you will help me with this! Thanks so much!

    I was so excited to tell my mom about this :). I went sugar-free and am trying to avoid refined foods, which is what led me here–but my mom and stepdad have been avoiding gluten and dairy for a few years now, and not enjoying it all that much! I quietly made a few recipes, taste-testing the site, if you will. The deep dish cookie pie was the one that absolutely tipped the scales. I texted my mom immediately. Dairy, soy, egg AND gluten free, BUT IT TASTES JUST LIKE THE REAL THING. HOLY COOKIE HEAVEN, IT’S A MIRACLE!!!! And today, I gave a piece to my mother in law….she literally begged for the recipe!!!

    We are not vegan, but to narrow food allergy possibilities for my 5yo we have to cut dairy out of my son’s diet, (this has been a difficult transition) HOWEVER, looking at your blog and some other vegan bloggers, I know it is within reach! I am learning what I can substitute where and have had great inspiration! Thank you!!!

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Most of my newer recipes (as of around January of this year) include the carb counts. To be honest, I have no idea how many carbs something must have to be deemed “low carb” but at least I provide the numbers so people who DO know can easily see if a recipe fits in his/her desired diet.

    Just wanted to ask, is there is actually a dairy-free variety of chocolate chips out there? We eat anything, and have had a great time trying out some of your recipes! But I’m preparing to cook for some relatives this weekend with some very particular diet needs, and as I read labels in the grocery store tonight I couldn’t find any chocolate chips that were actually vegan. 🙁

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Yes! Ghirardelli semi-sweet (gold package), Whole Foods brand, Sunspire grain-sweteened, and Enjoy Life brand are some of the ones I’ve used. And if nothing else you can always chop up pieces of vegan chocolate bars!

      • Diane says

        Thanks! I picked up some baking bars of chocolate in the meantime to melt. I’m hoping that’s about the equivalent of the vegan chocolate bars you use. I’m guessing the baking chocolate just has less sugar.

    Katie,

    What an amazing collection you have here! I can’t wait to try several of the recipies I’ve come across today and to continue exploring deeper and deeper into your blog.

    I’m wondering if you have a suggestion for replacing the banana in your recipies that have it listed. Like so many here they are out due to a food sentitivity and while I’ve used apple sauce when bananas are to be used as a wet ingredient – muffins, cookies, etc. – but I have never tried freezing the apple sauce or using it in things like your milk shakes or ice creams which are the recipies that have my mouth watering right now. I know it might change the flavor somewhat, but do you think it would work or does anyone have a better suggestion?

      I think you definitely can in most of my recipes, if not all… In fact, I usually say pb “or other nut butter of choice” when I write a recipe :).
      The only thing is that I use pb with salt, so if your ab doesn’t have any, you might want to add a tiny bit to taste.

    Katie,
    Thank you so much for doing your blog. I’ve been trying to get my family healthier and you just made that a lot easier. My son is in the process of being diagnosed with ADHD-I and he loves your snacks and power balls. I cut out all sugar last year, and most processed foods, but my husband felt bad that I wouldn’t let our son have any treats b/c of the sugar. Within 10 minutes of eating sugar he is a wild-child! But, now when he gets home from school he’ll ask for one of your healthy snacks. I am a 2x survivor of breast cancer, so it is also vital for me to eat healthy too! You have made my life, and so many of your fans lives easier. thank you!

But, now when he gets home from school he’ll ask for one of your healthy snacks. I am a 2x survivor of breast cancer, so it is also vital for me to eat healthy too! You have made my life, and so many of your fans lives easier. thank you!

    Why is all of your recipes egg and dairy free ? My personal opinion is that eggs are so healthy and protein packed and non fattening, so I think eggs is a wonderful ingredient and dairy can give that smooth creamy taste and adds calcium ? Where is the egg and dairy containing but still low carb recipes ? Please 🙂

      Cindy – Katie never claimed to have a low-carb blog. She has always claimed to have a vegan recipe blog. As far as I’m aware, she’s not a genie, so perhaps another site would suit your needs better =).

    If you are not a vegan feel free to have eggs and dairy. Dairy does not give you a thing as cows milk is for cows. Eggs are also an animal product .

    Thank you, Katie! My family is on a restricted diet too (gluten-free/dairy free), and your site has lots of fun options I want to try! I am sure my family will enjoy taste testing the endless possibilites your blog has to offer! I have been wanting to try my hand at healthier dessert options. I love the thought of enjoying a nutritious, sweet treat! Thanks for doing all the hard work!

    Katie your website is amazing!! My younger son has a dairy allergy, and so my family has gone dairy-free. I was very excited to see your Deep Dish Cookie Pie recipe, but…I’m allergic to apples! Do you have a suggestion for a substitute for the applesauce?

    Have you thought about adding a “high-calorie” or “low-calorie” tag? I know there are many variants of your recipes, but some are definitely made for one or the other; it would be nice to see them sorted! 🙂

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      It’s so easy to make most of the recipes either high OR low calorie that I’d probably end up categorizing the majority of them as both!
      But I *have* thought about making a few new categories… the only problem is that making new categories is tedious work because you have to go back to every single recipe individually! 😕

    Hi Katie!

    I LOVE your recipes. Thanks for the mint- chocolate popsicles; I agree with you about the spinach. Mint is kind of a thing for me. I’m wondering if you have a recipe for healthy-ish vegan mint nanaimo bars. I’m sorry if I’ve just missed it on your site.

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      I don’t. I am sad to say I don’t think I’ve ever had a nanimo bar in my life, even before going vegan :(. I need to change that!!

      In the meantime, the blogger ohsheglows.com has nanimo bars if I remember correctly, and her site is vegan :).

      • JP says

        GOOD Nanaimo bars (there are lots of second-rate ones) are heavenly. The thought of actually having healthy Nanaimo Bars (which I think are a Canadian thing) is really guilding the lily.

        But I’d love to try them!

I recently decided to better my life and body by eating healthy and natural. however, I have the largest sweet tooth EVER, and refuse to give up sweets! I was searching for ages for low cal healthy desserts and you have fit all my criteria! perfection!!! I was wondering though, if you have any tips for no/low sodium baking? my mom is also a sweet nut like me, but she was diagnosed with stage 3 kidney failure, and now has to limit her sodium intake! thank you thank you thank you!

THANK YOU!!! So far, I’ve only tried the Cake Batter Ice Cream (which blew my mind how creamy it could be and so low calorie! I used almond milk :P) and 5-minute Carrot Cake (which I topped with an easy recipe for peanut butter frosting I found recently- 1 T Peanut Butter per 1/2 T Maple syrup and 1/2 T flour- it went with it soooooooooooooooooooo well!!!!!). The low calorie just blows my mind. Thank you, so much. You need to be famous!! I’ll be trying the rest of your recipes soon, I hope!! (This means you, chocolate pancakes!!)

      I decided against doing a nut-free tag because I don’t know about cross-contamination in products that say “processed in a factory where peanuts are produced” or something like that. I didn’t want to confuse anyone or mislead them. Also, I didn’t know if people would count coconut as a nut

      I also have an oatmeal cookie recipe I need to post soon that uses protein powder. Maybe I WILL use it more in the future, as I know you’re not the only one who wishes for more protein-rich recipes.

    The only suggestion I have- I love the new layout and organization- is one that would probably take a lot of work. When I click to go to special diet recipes and then I click “gluten-free” all the results that come up aren’t in any order. If there would be any way to categorize them so that I could click on “Gluten-Free” and not have to sift through a huge long list of items to see what 2-3 cookie (or pie, or whatever) recipes I wanted to choose from, that would be SO AMAZING. Other than that, I have no suggestions- it looks great. I appreciate your dedication to the site as well and the recipes are SO DELICIOUS and made with practical ingredients that I would still visit it even if there were no organization AT ALL. It would just take a ridiculous amount of time, lol. Thanks for all your hard work! Looking forward to your cookbook!

    thank you SO much for all of these recipes. I am seriously obsessed with you! We have such similar tastes (I ONLY like sweet things if there is chocolate in them, and that too I usually prefer chocolate that is 70 to 100% – more of a texture gal myself). On top of that, I’ve been allergic/intolerant to all nuts, seeds, grains, dairy, egg, and refined sugars including brown sugar since birth. This blog makes my day every time I see it, and I’ve been making a recipe every day since my doctor told me to gain weight 🙂 not a problem with your chocolate filled recipes! Anyway, thanks a bunch and keep the choco-filled goodies coming!

    coconut + flour
    coconut +flour
    etc. etc…. I end up with 21 pages of recipes that have the words “coconut” and/or “flour” in them–which, of course, is not helpful… =) Any advice as to what I am doing incorrectly would be appreciated! Thank you in advance!

    That’s a really great idea! The only suggestion I have would be the addition of “fructose-free/low fructose” and possibly the same for histamine, provided you are familiar with those. Sugar-free recipes can be a good start, but often contain either honey, agave/maple syrup or the like, (sugared!) chocolate or fruit, which is largely unsuitable. I myself am a fructose-malabsorber and often find it surprising that although fructose-malabsorption (FM) is much more common than gluten-sensitivity or lactose-intolerance there is close to no market catering to it. I see lots of lactose- and gluten-free stuff on the shelves and tons of corresponding recipes, but (practically) nothing for FM (and then if I happen to find a rare chocolate with glucose it’s 4x or more the price of ordinary chocolate…)

    Is there any possibility that you could add a “grain-free” recipe filter?
    I’ve been using your website to cling on to the last few shreds of “normal” baked goods that I have available, since I started having health issues about a year ago…. (I’m only 26!!! I still require chocolate to function on a regular basis!!!)
    Thank you BTW, you’ve made eating gluten free and vegan a viable option for me! Upon doing a further review of my health issues tho, I’m having the suspicion that I may have to go GRAIN free…. (Aramath, quinoa, and buckwheat are apparently not grains.. So there is still hope!)
    Thanks again for paving the way for the rest of us who at one time thought vegan meant no chocolate! I’m very VERY pleased to be wrong about that!!!

    I’m so glad that the paleo diet is starting to become more mainstream and indeed accepted.

    Personally, I think the Paleo diet is great. I am seeing and feeling the benefits of the diet for a long time now. Not only have I lost weight, but I feel much more energized, and much better in myself. I think the reason is that whilst the paleo diet may be a diet, I do actually eat much much varied food than I did previously. All I’ve done is taken out the stodge that my body finds hard to digest, and added more types of fruit, veg, and indeed meat.

    I’ve now actually taken an interest in cooking paleo meals, which I can guarantee is 100% better than throwing some ready meals in the oven like I used to.

    My sister is allergic to basically everything…which is why finding your site is awesome! However, she’s also allergic to yeast and shouldn’t have baking powder/soda either….Can I just eliminate that from any recipe? It’ll roughly taste the same, but won’t rise??

    • Jason Sanford says

      Unfortunately it will depend on each individual recipe as to how it affects the recipe and there’s just no way to know how a substitution will turn out in a recipe unless you try. Be sure to report back if you experiment!
