I am very new to the peanut/tree nut allergy life. I'm a class 2. Not sure what that means!! I also have to avoid sunflower oil & coconut oil. I've been looking for new snacks to add to my diet. Any help would be amazing & greatly appreciated!

My son is Peanut//TreeNut/Sunflower allergic. His allergist told us that sunflower oil in chips, pretzels, nachos is not an issue due to how its processed. That being said, thats what our doctor said for our son. I would consult with your doctor to get the most information as possible about your allergy.

I also have a Class 2 peanut allergy. I also am allergic to peas, eggs and all berries. I take my peanut allergy seriously. It was diagnosed when I was 29 and I am 61 now. I am very conservative about what I eat. I cook all my own food. My treats are fruits.
Class 2 allergy is not something to take lightly. You could have a bad reaction anytime you get into peanuts.
Be vigilant about what you eat. Make sure you have an epi-pen at all times.
And, most of all, our society is too involved in junk food, food treats etc. Your body does not need all that junk at all. You will be much healthier without it.
