Recipe: Peanut Free Resources

Published July 13, 2012 8:50 AM by Stephanie Bruno-Dowling
Today's post is a continuation of last week's peanut allergy post and is bursting with excellent resources and information for individuals interested in learning more about this allergy. My post today includes: websites, a children's book and a delicious recipe all geared towards individuals with a peanut allergy. 
  • Contains a wide variety of information, including the "latest peanut allergy news". The website also offers a complete Peanut Free Directory as well as foods, products, recipes and peanut butter substitutes that are safe for people with a peanut allergy. In addition there is a complete information section that talks about the facts surrounding the allergy, causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and awareness. Also includes a direct link to FAAN (Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network), which holds walks and various fundraisers annually to bring awareness to the dangers of food allergies.



"Allie" is a wonderful book written about the perils and triumphs of an elephant that tells her life story of what it is like to live with peanut allergies. The book is geared towards educating pre-school through 3rd grade children, and has helped many adults understand peanut allergies as never before." [insert link  This book and more information about it can be found at the website Allergic 


RECIPE:  "SUN"sational Cookies

Sunbutter  is a delicious sunflower seed spread that is highly promoted on many of the peanut free websites.  *Trader Joes also sells a sunflower seed spread, which I have used during my recipe language lessons at school. Both are delicious and serve as a fabulous substitute for peanut butter. Here is a recipe directly from the Sunbutter website for "SUN"sational Cookies. ENJOY!

1/2 cup margarine

1/2 cup SunButter®

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 t salt

3/4 cup sunflower kernel
