Food Allergy Awareness Week is May 14 - 21. The goal of the week is to increase awareness for the seriousness of food allergies and to increase compassion for the 15 million Americans living with food allergies.

One of the ways you can support someone you love who is affected by food allergies is to be conscientious about what you cook. Having several recipes on hand that are free of common allergens can be helpful.

This month each of our recipes are for kid-friendly snacks that are free of a common allergen.

This recipe for brownies would make a great treat for kids or adults living with a gluten intolerance.

Gluten Free Brownies

  • 1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup flax seed meal
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1/4 cup rice milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x10-inch baking pan.

Mix oats, brown sugar, flax seed meal, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl. Mix banana, rice milk, egg, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl. Pour banana mixture into flour mixture; stir to combine. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan.

Bake brownies in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cover pan with a towel to hold in moisture and cool brownies for at least 5 minutes before serving.
