Cocodate Cookies from weelicious.comPin

It seems like more kids have food allergies these days than ever before. It breaks my heart every time a mom tells me that her child can’t eat a certain type of food, be it dairy, gluten, nuts, eggs or more. As hard as it can be for kids with allergies to watch their friends enjoying foods that are of limits for them, it can be just as challenging for their concerned parents who are trying to come up with nutritious alternatives that their allergic kids actually want to eat.

Years ago I got turned onto Go Raw Cookies. With only four ingredients and packed with toasty coconut and super sweet dates, they’re free of many of the most common allergy-causing foods. They inspired me to make a (hopefully) allergy-defying cookie of my own which, while not raw, are cooked at a very low temperature making them chewy on the inside and a delectable treat for almost anyone to enjoy. Did I mention that they’re also super easy to make?

Once you taste these Cocodate Cookies I’ll bet you’ll wish that you double or even tripled the recipe because you’ll want to always have a bunch on hand in the cookie jar, your kid’s lunchbox, the car and in big bags in the freezer for everyone to enjoy!

    1. My husband made these today with my 4yo. We used sunflower seeds, because he has a sesame seed allergy. They turned out great!
