Recipes › Snacks

The majority of these recipes are low carb, sugar free or use minimal sugar substitutes, gluten free, wheat free and grain free. Some of them are dairy free or have dairy free options.

I have been pretty much gluten free for a few years now, however this is a whole new experience for the rest of the family. These recipes have been developed to try and make the transition to our new way of eating as pain free for my husband and 3 (+ a baby) children as possible. We still include dairy in our diet as no one seems to have a problem with it and we enjoy having it as an option.
