Dairy, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Crumpets

Tea and Dairy, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Crumpets anyone?

Or in my boys’ case…a mug of Dairy Free Hot Chocolate!

I am always on the look out for breakfast ideas to adapt…Michael tends to fall into a ‘breakfast rut’…whereas, Mattthew is quite content with his bowl of hot oatmeal with milk and pure maple syrup. 

Pre-packaged crumpets at the grocery store (may contain dairy, sesame seeds, and/or egg) are off-limits due to his food allergies. Enter Canadian Living Magazine’s December 2012 article, ‘Griddle Me This’, to the rescue!

I was so excited to find a recipe for Crumpets that I could easily adapt. With no egg in the recipe, I just had to substitute Natur-a Soy or Rice beverage for the milk. Click here for the original recipe.

A bit time-consuming, as the batter needs to rise for an hour in a warm draft-free place. ( I turned on the oven for a few minutes to take the chill out, turned it off, and then placed my bowl covered in plastic wrap inside to rest)

I improvised with the 3-inch ring mold and used a 3 inch fluted cookie cutter…worked fine but could only make one crumpet at a time.

Upon turning the crumpet over, I started another crumpet.

Michael’s eyes lit up when he heard that I was making Dairy, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Crumpets for an after school snack.

Matthew hovered over me…anxiously waiting a fresh from the grill, allergy friendly crumpet… “Are they ready, now?”

The boys loved them!

All but three, Dairy, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Crumpets, were gobbled up.

Michael enjoyed one toasted for his breakfast along with a mug of Dairy Free Hot Chocolate before he headed off to school.

Enjoy!

P.S. To save time, I cut the recipe in half…next time I would use a proper 3-inch ring mold and make a full batch, freezing any leftovers to toast for a quick breakfast or snack.

Tip: If you find yourself, like I did, forgetting to add the canola oil…don’t worry…gently mixing it in after the hour rest works fine.
