Recipe // Dairy and Soya Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

H-Bear and I got our bake on last Friday for a play date in the afternoon. I foolishly thought I’d made enough Dairy and Soya Free Iced Biscuits for the play date AND the weekend… but as it transpired, they were the equivalent of toddler/preschooler crack, and I ended up calling Nick to ask him to bring another round of biscuits over (and some prosecco for the mums!), so we were left almost biscuit-less at home. Not to fear, as I’d been itching to adapt another recipe for  ...

Recipe // Dairy and Soya Free Chocolate and Banana Loaf

Up until last week H-Bear had never eaten a piece of chocolate. He’s had free-from chocolate brownies before (the Sainsbury’s ones are fab!), but never just a piece of chocolate. So we took a little bus trip to Waitrose last Thursday and had a saunter down the free-from aisle to see what might be on offer. That’s where I came across Moo Free chocolate. Moo Free are the world leading manufacturer of dairy free, soya free, gluten free, organic and vegan chocolates. Their  ...

CMPA // My son’s allergies are not a lifestyle choice

“So, we’ve got a couple of substitutions” the delivery driver said to me. “Ok, I’m going to have to check the back of the packets before I can accept them.” *Cue strange look* “My son is allergic to a few things, so I have to make sure they’re ok” “But they’re still Free From?” “Well, yes, but that doesn’t mean he can eat them… Free From doesn’t mean free from everything.” I swear this is a  ...

Recipe // Dairy & Soya-Free Victoria Sandwich Cake

With H-Bear suffering from Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA), and also a soya allergy, finding sweet treats that he can eat can be a challenge. He’s recently realised that cake exists, and as been rather envious of us while we’ve tucked into cupcakes and such like. We’ve tried a few different alternative recipes for cake (including a rather disastrous beetroot chocolate cake!) but none of them have tasted quite right. So when the lovely folk at Flora got in touch and  ...
