The Ultimate Guide to Nut-Free Baking: Delicious Recipes & Tips

For those with nut allergies or dietary restrictions, baking can seem like a daunting task. However, with the right ingredients and some creative substitutions, delicious nut-free baked goods are entirely possible! This guide will provide you with all the tips and recipes you need to master nut-free baking.

Understanding Nut-Free Baking

When baking without nuts, it's important to avoid not only tree nuts and peanuts, but also nut-based ingredients like nut flours, nut oils, and nut butters. Be sure to read food labels carefully, as cross-contamination can occur in processing facilities. For more information on food labeling, check out our guide: FDA Food Package Labeling.

    • Gluten-Free Flours: Rice flour, oat flour, corn flour

Tips for Successful Nut-Free Baking

  • Boost Flavor: Use spices, extracts, zests, and other flavorful ingredients to compensate for the lack of nuts.
  • Proper Storage: Store nut-free baked goods in airtight containers at room temperature or in the refrigerator/freezer, depending on the item. Check out our Pantry Organization Guide for more tips.
