Clean Eating with Allergies

In addition to Clean Eating, our family has already been eliminating dairy and eggs due to intollerances. So imagine my surprise when we were told that we also need to eliminate wheat for 8 weeks. Now that is hard to do! Our kids eat toast for breakfast and sandwiches for lunch. I needed more school lunch ideas and it had to be clean food!

Gluten Free Corn Dog Recipe

I pulled out one of our favorite recipes: https://www.naturaldeets.com/dairy-free-corn-dog-recipe/ and figured out how to eliminate the wheat. Surprisingly, the wheat free version turned out to be just as good as the original!

To replace the flour, I increased the cornmeal and made up the difference with Chickpea Flour. Chickpea flour and cornmeal are both naturally gluten free and although I wasn’t going for a Gluten free corn dog, that’s where we ended up.

Wheat Free Mini Corn Dog Muffins

There were a couple of tricks to this dough. First of all, it looked extremely watery. In fact, I was sure I was going to be making another batch. Here’s a picture (see what I mean?):

But it actually turned out perfectly! The second trick is to let the batter sit for 10 minutes before baking. This gives the baking powder and baking soda time to activate.

The last trick is to sufficiently oil the muffin pan. Because there is so little oil, and no eggs or butter, the muffins will stick to the pan. Sufficiently oiling the pan will keep them from sticking.

  1. I don’t eat meat…or dairy, eggs and gluten. I can use your recipe for gluten, egg and dairy free corn muffins, though, and just omit the hotdogs. Thanks for the recipe!

    • It sounds like we have a similar lifestyle! When I omit the hot dog I like to add a little more honey just for some additional flavor!

    • I hadn’t heard of flax eggs until I needed to use them but they have become an easy way to add flax to our diet! Its worth a try once in a while even if you aren’t avoiding eggs! πŸ™‚

  2. I love corndogs but haven’t had one in years……probably because of the processed part of the store bought options. I never really thought about making it myself. Even though we don’t have kids, it might be a fun snack idea for us!

  3. We have to accommodate based on anaphylactic egg, peanut and tree nut allergies, so I’d have to find a substitute for the almond milk. However, this is a GREAT find for those who have dairy or gluten allergies or sensitivities.

    • You could try substituting soy or oat milk if that would work, but you are right, it is difficult to find an almond milk substitute!
