Peanut-Free Fun Desserts

Creating fun desserts that are peanut-free is not that difficult anymore. More and more mothers and foodies are putting together 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. They are crazy delicious because the recipe directions are so easy to follow. You simply combine all the ingredients, spoon them out, roll them in walnuts and almond flakes.

I had a creative mess on my hands but well worth the effort. They were a super 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 Cheesecase

Do you have any peanut-free desserts to share in the comments?

6 - SunButter Cup

Oh my goodness, I found a recipe that tastes like peanut butter cups but has no peanut butter or peanuts. The recipe by Best Allergy Sites and uses sunbutter, which is made only with sunflower seeds.

The recipe is pretty simple and straightforward but creative because once you mix the ingredients together you pour the mix up into paper cups and freeze them. 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.

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.

      Louise, I understand. Some of these recipes only require a food processor or Ninja. They are so yummy! Thank you for commenting.

      They are lovely recipes, although I'm not very good at baking lol. I do like the look of the healthy chocolate cookies though.
