Easter treat recipes for people with allergies
We found out my oldest son had multiple food allergies when he was about a year old. Back then it was super hard to find any type of holiday treats that he could eat.
Sure, he could have an allergy-safe cookie, or maybe a piece of candy. But he really missed out on holiday-specific things.
Over the years, the internets have made it so easy to find yummy themed Easter treat recipes to make.
This collection of allergy-friendly recipes include copycat recipes for some of your favorite seasonal treats as well as egg-shaped jellies that your kids will love.
Allergy-friendly recipes for Easter
There is no way that I could put together a super-comprehensive list of safe treats that are perfect for your child.
While some people can tolerate dairy AND gluten, others cannot. I gathered recipes that are fun for Easter, but you’ll have to double-check that the ingredients are right for your family.
I broke this list into 2 main parts, with nuts and without. If you are an allergy mom then you will probably know how to substitute ingredients to keep your family safe.
Also, for a lot of these recipes, you can swap other ingredients to make them dairy-free, etc. Some, like the pavlova, probably won’t work if you take out the eggs, so do your best!
With Nuts, but Vegan or Dairy Free
Can't eat nuts? Skip these recipes. A lot of vegan recipes use nuts to make creamy treats. But if you are allergic, stick to the yummy Easter recipes above.
We’re super lucky that my son has mostly outgrown his food allergies. He’s now almost 14 years old and is still allergic to some nuts.
While this list of Easter treats recipes for people with allergies has a bunch of great options that you can make at home, sometimes you want to buy something at the store.
Allergen Free Easter Candy
For years allergen-free Easter chocolate was non-existent. Now there are a handful of options for top 8 allergen-free Easter candy.
Our family has always been very fond of Dum Dums for years. My heart swells when I see these allergy-friendly suckers at kid hair salons, the bank or kid’s sports snack bars because I know that for a minute, my kid gets to have the same treat as everyone else.
AND they are delicious. AND small, so kids usually eat them all up before they get tired of them and they end up stuck to the back of my shirt or a chair or something.
Dum Dum suckers are made by Spangler Candy company and I heart them. They make a few other candies that are also allergen-free (I’m looking at you Circus Peanut – which to date, are the only peanut my son has ever eaten).
- Surf Sweets Jelly Beans
- Smashmallow Easter Fun Size Packs
- Sour Punch Easter Mix (has gluten)
- No Whey Dairy Free White Chocolate Bunny
- No Whey Benny the Chocolate Bunny
- No Whey Milkless Surprise Eggs
- No Whey Easter Lollipop Collection
- No Moo Easter Bunnycomb Egg
- Enjoy Life Chocolate Bars
- Yum Earth “skittles”
Kid’s With Food Allergies was a resource for me when I really need one. They have an Allergy-Friendly Easter Candy Guide (dated 2019 – so pretty up to date) that can give you even more safe ideas!
Be sure to double-check ingredients to make sure they’re right for your family!
