Old World nut free delights that I don't have to bake

Nut free delights from Shalom Kosher Bakery (sold at some grocery stores)
Time for changes, yes, that's still my intention for this blog.  But with all the holiday eating, I was reminded how limited the ‘ready made’ baked good choices are for those with peanut and nut allergies.  Sure, I will be baking all kinds of home made desserts this season, but while shopping for groceries, I couldn’t pass up these items.  I blogged about this a few years ago, but here is a reminder that some Kosher baked items are perfect for people with nut and peanut allergies (and dairy allergies).
Nut free Nutella like spread also available at your grocery store's Kosher section

Time to make some crepes,  the 'nut free nutella is the perfect substitute  (there is also one without dairy). If you want a slightly nutty taste, stir in some tahini (sesame based) and have a truly 'nut free nutella' thrill.

someone couldn't wait
Many breads are cross contaminated with nuts and peanuts and often dairy - we've had this challah bread for years.  It's delicious for french toast as well.

And some other fun baked stuff.  Yes, baking season is upon us, but these tasty traditional desserts are great and have an old world taste without the old world worrying of an allergic reaction.

Also, a reminder, for those with some gluten and soy allergies, Kosher for Passover is a great choice.  When my son couldn't have wheat or soy, we stocked up on those items as well.   Kosher doesn't imply nut free, these items just happen to be.  

Shellfish allergies?  Again, we have often shopped in the kosher seafood section so we don't have to worry about cross contamination with shellfish (still dealing with this allergy).

Dairy allergies?  Dealt with that too, and kosher meats do not have lactic acid based in dairy either-you can't mix meat and dairy in the kosher diet.

So while you may not have religious reasons to follow a kosher diet, it is actually a very allergy friendly diet.
