Nut Free Vegan Biscuits is the recipe that you’ve been searching for. Why, you may ask? Like you, I am tired of searching for vegan biscuits that aren’t allergy friendly!

Food allergy is something that affects a lot of people around the world. In fact, I want to share with you what I read from FARE.com (Food Allergy Research & Education). Did you know that more than 170 foods have been reported to cause allergic reactions in the US! Yes, seriously, 170!!! That’s a whole lot of food that’s messing up with our bodies.

For me, it’s quite a super duper important consideration when I prepare meals at home. Our family truly enjoys eating delicious vegan meals, but I hate having to tell our daughter, with food allergies, NO! I felt like I was becoming the bearer of bad news.

To make a long story short, Alex our daughter has several food and environmental allergies. A majority of the vegan recipes for biscuits use some sort of soy or nuts, which she is allergic to.

Just a little caution for you, my friend. With all the info out there about nut-free recipes, it’s wise to still learn more about the “nut jargon” so to speak! I mean, hey it’s not rocket science but it’s good to know the differences. You know what I mean? Some “nuts” out there are having an identity crisis!

Nuts 101 – In a Nutshell

Here’s a basic fact. Peanut is technically NOT a nut. Okay, that was almost a tongue twister ha ha ha! So if you’re allergic to peanut, then more accurately you have a “peanut allergy”. Peanut is actually a legume, like your peas and beans.

Now you ask, how about cocoNUT? Hmmm, tricky! Coconut is also NOT a true/botanical nut but a “drupe”. It is classified as a fruit, but the FDA lists it as “tree nut”. According to KidsWithFoodAllergies.org, coconut allergy is reasonably rare. Most people allergic to tree nuts can safely eat coconut.

Let’s get a little geeky here for a quick sec. A “botanical nut” is the real/true/legit nut in scientific terms. A true nut is a dry, hard-shelled pod that contains both the seed and fruit. Just remember: hard-shelled. Like chestnuts, acorns and hazelnuts.

What about a “drupe”? A drupe is a fleshy fruit that surrounds a pit or a stone containing a seed. Aside from coconuts, other examples are almonds, pistachios, cashews, and walnuts.

In the culinary world, people use the word “nut” more loosely. Unlike botanists, these culinary guys are less strict! Cheers to you guys!!! J “Culinary nuts” cover ALL true/botanical nuts, drupes, and seeds. Pine nuts are actually seeds, and are a popular culinary nut.

Lastly (before we proceed to cooking, I know you are excited to bake and eat!) what are “tree nuts”? People commonly use this term to label ALL nuts (whether true nuts or “culinary” nuts) from a tree, like almonds, cashew, macadamia, walnut, pecan, etc.

Again, when it comes to food allergy, my best advice is to talk to your allergist. Make sure you know what you CAN and CANNOT eat.

Okay, we’ve fed our minds. Time to feed our bodies!
