I decided to start this blog after my son was diagnosed with food allergies. For the first seven months of his life he suffered with terrible eczema and after a trip to the ER we found out he is allergic to milk, soy, eggs, sesame and peanuts. As a parent of a child with food allergies it is a constant emotional rollercoaster. I have cried at grocery stores, at birthday parties and at night. He has had the Epi injection twice and spent too much time in the ER.

Current allergies: Milk, Eggs, Peanuts, Tree nuts
Outgrew: Sesame, Soy

Almond Butter Rice Crispy Treats

I found this recipe for the most amazing Almond Butter Rice Crispy Treats.

My recipe went a little different since I am not a fan of coconut.

This can be modified with sunflour butter or peanut butter
