EGGLESS and NUTLESS cookie recipe for 3 year olds

Please spare me hours of surfing the web trying to find something tried and true. All of my cookbooks are locked away in storage. Sigh. Thanks in advance.

  1. Not exactly a recipe, but if you have this brand -- Cherrybrook Kitchen -- in any stores near you (Whole Foods has it), they have mixes and they are pretty good.

    My daughter has a kid in her class with nut and wheat allergies and my son has a kid in his class with egg and nut allergies. And the 2 kids with the allergies are actually brothers. The mother has her hands full!

    1. Coconut Tofu Cookies from the Fat Free Vegan blog look really good. I haven't made them yet, but the reviews look promising. Don't let the tofu scare you- it's in there to replace the egg

      A friend of mine has a nephew with the same allergies- she uses applesauce with a brownie mix to replace the eggs. She also makes chocolate chip cookies with mashed bananas (1 =1 egg), but I haven't made either one. If you try them, let me know.

      1. Check out Post-punk kitchen website for egg-free recipes. Or you can use egg-replacer which is basically a mix of starches. It is made by Ener-G. It isn't expensive, but I don't use a whole lot of it. They also have ideas of replacing the egg.

        Shortbread is naturally egg-free in many recipes. Press nut-free chocolate into it and kids will eat them!

        1. Rice Krispie Treats? I mean they're not technically a cookie but a "bar" but would qualify as egg & nut free and along the same lines, the good ol' no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies - just chocolate, butter, marshmallows, oats and either coconut or more mashmallows or dried fruit.

            These cookies are amazingly good. I have to ship them to my mother in law monthly! Just leave out the nuts.
