13 Peanut-Free Desserts
Fun Peanut-Free Desserts
Creating fun desserts that are peanut-free is not that difficult anymore. More and more parents, as well as foodies, are creating recipes that will put a smile on any kid’s face—no matter what type of food allergy they experience.
1. Coconut Milk Fudge
Carolyn’s recipe is so creative and delicious that it is hard to believe it doesn’t contain peanuts or milk. I know my kids love fudge. If I can get them to eat these, it is a whole lot healthier than store-bought desserts.
What makes them so creamy is the coconut, and my kids love coconut. The recipe has an ingredient that I find interesting called xanthan gum. It is used in recipes to keep the ingredients from separating.

2. Quinoa Banana Bread
The recipe contains walnuts, but you don’t have to add them to your recipe if your kids can’t have any nuts. I like this recipe because it is so healthy with quinoa, bananas, rice flour, and apple. It is so much fun to make.
I find it interesting that the recipe calls for blond cane sugar. Blond cane sugar is considered to be healthier than regular sugar.
3. Crunchy Banana Chocolate Bites
These treats are totally raw and are fun to make, too. They are crazy delicious because the recipe directions are so easy to follow. You simply combine all the ingredients, spoon them out, and roll them in walnuts and almond flakes.
I had a creative mess on my hands but it well worth the effort. They were a huge hit at my latest get-together, and kids devour them.

4. S'more Bars
I call this recipe a 5-star and peanut-free recipe because it is so creative. I had a great time making it. They are so rich, gooey, and great-tasting. They made our campfire sweet and fun without worrying about my son's allergies.
The recipe comes from Taste of Home. The ingredients are not all that healthy, but the main point is that it is peanut-free.
5. Nut-Free Cheesecake
Do you have any peanut-free desserts to share in the comments?
6. SunButter Protein Cup
Oh my goodness, I found a recipe that tastes like peanut butter cups but has no peanut butter or peanuts. The recipe Allergylicious and uses sunbutter, which is made only with sunflower seeds.
The recipe is pretty simple because I didn't have to bake. It's straightforward but creative because once you mix the ingredients together you melt chocolate chips and layer the chocolate and filling into paper cups. The top is the melted chocolate with a sprinkle of sea salt. I used Himalaya salt. Then, you then freeze them for about 20 minutes. My kids ate them alone while I mixed them with their favorite coconut ice cream. Truthfully, I like eating them alone.
7. Chocolate Cookies
8. Caramel Brownies
These are caramelly good but not good for you. Peanut-free is a definite "go for it" because these brownies are all about caramel. Inside Bru Crew Life offers this recipe by keeping it simple. I started with a brownie base and slathered on the caramel for a yummy finish.
The recipe includes melting butter, whipping cream, adding chocolate, and eggs. All I can say is if you can't eat peanuts you will forget all about it after one delicious bite.
I tried it ala mode and the vanilla ice cream made the whole dessert heaven sent.
9. The Best Soft and Chewy Coconut Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are delicious and my whole family consumed them all in one night. I had a great time making them knowing that I was using coconut oil instead of butter. I know that has nothing to do with peanuts.
The recipe is easy to follow with simple ingredients like using instant vanilla pudding. Averie Cooks has many pictures to help you instantly decide to make this chocolately, melt in your mouth wonders.
10. Air-Popcorn With a Twix
I love eating air-popcorn because it is so fresh. When I found the peanut-free recipe that is similar to David & Harry’s Moose Munch, I had to share it with you.
The recipe calls for Wilton’s Melting chocolate. If you are not familiar with it, no worries because Wilton’s is so easy to melt. Most grocery stores carry the Wilton Melting Chocolate.
You will need to melt the chocolate and start off with eight cups of air-popcorn and place it in a large bowl with any unpopped kernels removed. Another interesting ingredient is Biscoff. It is like cookie butter. But, the best ingredient, which the kids will love, is Twix bars. Now, if there are allergies to the Twix bars you can substitute any candy bar available.
Ashton, who thought of this recipe, has an optional ingredient. Semi-chocolate chips. I don’t know why she made it an option. I just made them unoptional (Is there such a word?)
Anyway, this recipe is quick to make if you are familiar with Wilton’s Melting Chocolate. I whipped it up in about 20 – 30 minutes, which includes cleaning up as I went. It is yummy!
11. Best Avocado Brownies
A friend of mine shared this brownie recipe with me, and it is delicious and completely peanut-free. I mean the recipe calls for other nut butters like almond, tahini, cashew, and so forth but no peanut butter or peanuts.
Old-style brownies are not good for your body because they are high in sugar, contain cow’s milk, white flour, and tons of butter. This recipe is all about eating healthy while the brownies are tasty good.
Healthy Life Box’s recipe is rich in healthy fats, fiber, and antioxidants because of the avocado. They are considered fruit and are dense in nutrients like essential amino acids. Essential amino acids cannot be produced by the body, so you have to intake food that has these amino acids like the avocado.
Avocado isn’t the only healthy ingredient in this recipe. Coconut and sweet potato are the other ingredients giving a healthy nibble for everyone. Another added benefit is that there is no sugar or wheat.
I found this recipe easy-peasy to make and my kids loved them. Did I tell them it was made with avocado and sweet potato? Of course not, I didn’t want to ruin a good thing. Good is the key word because these brownies are very good.
12. Apple Muffins
These delicious muffins are not only peanut-free but dairy-free and egg-free. Even vegans can eat these simple and wonderful muffins that are so easy to prepare. The recipe is available at Parents. I peruse Parents website for all sorts of recipe ideas for kids who have sensitive food diets.
My daughter, who is self-proclaimed vegan devoured these muffins during our family's Sunday brunch. My husband wasn't too happy about that because he didn't get his usual third helping.
The recipe calls for brown sugar and no white sugar at all. I used organic sprouted Khorasah flour, which is like all-purpose flour but healthier and easier on the body.
I altered the recipe by adding sliced almonds on top.
13. Sweet Potato Coconut Balls
The recipe caught my eye because I have a friend who loves coconut flakes. This recipe calls for both in the dough and as a coating for the balls.
The recipe is fairly easy to make. If you love sweet potatoes, then you'll enjoy making these. They are healthy and have no peanuts. They do ask for walnuts, and the next time I make the recipe I plan on substituting pecans.
The recipe turned out 15 balls, and they were delicious. I used larger sized coconut flakes than you see in the image. The Pulau Girl is wholeheartedly thanked for the recipe. Yummy!
Easy to Make & Tasty
Each dessert is so much fun and creative. They prove that peanut-free desserts are not hard to make and very tasty for kids to enjoy.
