Allergy Friendly Home Run!
Ok, so if you’ve gotten to know me on our first coffee date then you know I am a busy mom to two awesome kiddos. Well, that crazy blue eyed curly blonde you see in that photo? She has Celiac’s Disease, and for the first few years she also several other allergies that I had to figure out how to accommodate. Allergy friendly foods became a new passion for me. I wanted my baby girl to be able to enjoy delicious cupcakes, yummy mac and cheese (without the gluten or dairy), and more.
At first there were a lot of flops. A lot of half heartedly eaten treats, and expensive garbage can weights. But slowly I began to get the hang of it. I started to figure out the tricks to making my allergy friendly treats just as good, if not better, than their allergen filled lookalikes.
I found my favorite flour blend. A butter alternative that didn’t have a million ingredients and acted like butter in my recipes. I found that unsweetened applesauce is a great ingredient swap for eggs (you’re welcome vegan friends)! And finally, 4 years later, I have the BEST gluten, dairy, soy, corn, peanut, tree nut, and egg free cupcake recipe EVER.
Ready to rock all of your allergy ridden friends with best cupcake recipe EVER?! I hope so!

This allergy friendly recipe is a serious crowd pleaser! My favorite compliments include:
“This is gluten free? I couldn’t even tell!”
“I don’t like sweets, but your cupcakes are too good to pass up!”
“Kierstin Cupcakes are my favorite food group.”
My absolute favorite, from my uncle who has been in the restaurant industry for YEARS, and has been a critic for me while I refined my recipes. Finally this past year, he said, “They didn’t even need the gluten.”
Who are you going to wow with this new recipe?
