Happy Halloween!

With all the food issues in our household, and with living so remotely, we’re going to skip trick-or-treating this year.  We still managed to make it to a Halloween party, though!

So I’m going to ‘phone it in’ on this post and simply share pictures of my boys in their costumes.

Happy Halloween!

Mr. Charm as Thomas! He thinks he has to close his eyes to smile for the camera!

Mr. Happy as a Ladybug…it was the best we could come up with on short notice! And he wouldn’t stop squirming long enough for his wings. Still, he’s a cute little bug!

Fellow Food Allergy Mama’s, please share your tips on celebrating Halloween safely!  How do you convince your kids not to eat candies and foods that are dangerous for them?

    Happy Halloween! Your boys look adorable. It’s hard being fructose-free this time of year. We’ve focused on non-candy traditions like pumpkin carving, Halloween music, etc. We filled X’s trick or treat bag with crafts, stickers and bubbles — he was thrilled. And this week is the perfect time to trial pumpkin — we’ve both been enjoying pumpkin pancakes!

      Mmm..pumpkin pancakes? Please share that recipe! I like the idea of focusing on non-candy traditions. Something to keep in mind for next year! Thanks for the suggestions – and I’m serious about the recipe!

    Here’s that pumpkin pancake recipe. I just modified my regular pancake recipe by substituting arrowroot starch/flour with pumpkin puree. You’ll note the cane sugar – we’ve learned through trial and error that X can tolerate small amounts. These pancakes freeze and reheat well. Same recipe can also be used to make waffles. We’re on day 3 of pumpkin and it looks like a pass!

    Pumpkin Pancakes

    1 cup millet flour
    1 cup sorghum flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    3 tsp cane sugar
    ¼ tsp sea salt
    Pinch of cinnamon
    4 tbsp pumpkin puree (we use canned)
    6 tbsp canola oil
    1 cup water
    In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and pour in wet ingredients. Mix until smooth.
    Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
    Makes 12 pancakes.
