Hi all, this is for the peanut but not tree nut allergic contingent.
At my last trip to the health food store, I spied a new (to me) product:
Redmonds Peanut-Free Almond Butter
They have a creamy and an x-tra crunchy.
The label clearly says "Made in a Peanut Free Facility." The address says "Redmond's Peanut Free Facility & Foods, LLC" and the website is [url="http://www.peanutfreefoods.com"]www.peanutfreefoods.com[/url]
On the website, a jar is REALLY expensive. I can't for the life of me remember if this is how much it cost me at the health food store. I just know I snapped it up. : )
I have a pretty restricted diet because of my Celiac disease, plus casein and coconut intolerances, and baby Drew's rice allergy, corn and gluten intolerances. I know it's not common practice to introduce tree nuts, but we cautiously introduced almonds as a much-needed "packable" protein (fast food is out for us, as well as most processed foods). I used some of the almond butter to make totally grain-free, milk-free, peanut-free cookies. Yum. This will probably be Drew's "birthday cake" when he turns 1 in a few weeks.
I used 2/3 c. of almond butter 2/3 c. of sugar 1/3 c. of cocoa powder 1 egg
Drop on cookie sheet. Bake on 350 for 10 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes.
Cheers! Hope they lower the price!
