My diet has changed radically since being diagnosed with celiac, severe lactose intolerance and ibs (just a few of the less than stellar additions my body has decided to take on as it gets older). Unfortunately German supermarkets have yet to provide tasty options for a variety of dietary needs so I’ve had to become rather inventive in the kitchen.
As attempting to find a sweet treat that I can actually eat while out and about during the holiday season is nearly impossible I’ve come up with a few tweaks to my not so secret family recipes to satisfy my Christmas cravings.
Take a peek at My Fave Gluten & Lactose Free Christmas Treat Recipes and whip up some tummy pleasing sweets this holiday season:
These traditional German baked apples are now deliciously lactose free!
Lactose free peanut butter marshmallow squares are a fast, no bake treat that also make an excellent gift!
Gluten and lactose free gingerbread that actually tastes yummy without turning rock hard or crumbling to bits? Yup, here’s my secret ingredient!
Waldmeister Keks: A traditional German Christmas cookie with my gluten & lactose free twist.
My Grandma’s crazy easy no bake chocolate macaroons were a snap to make gluten & lactose free!
And last but not least, create some luxurious handmade chocolate from those leftover treats you have lurking in the cupboard!
