Dark Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies make great freefrom festive treats. Dairyfree, suitable for vegans and the recipe works just as well with glutenfree flour.

This Whisky & Ginger Glutenfree Christmas Cake (Dairyfree Eggfree Vegan) is so simple to make. Just fold together ready made mincemeat, flour and some optional extras before baking, cooling and covering with icing or sparkly snow! You may have noticed I like to multi-task in the kitchen. Especially where it comes to recipes and this Christmas Cake is no exception! The main ingredient is a jar of my Last Minute Whisky & Ginger Mincemeat which is freefrom dairy, eggs, gluten, soy & nuts – but you can use any suitable jar of shop bought too! My mincemeat contains whiskey, ginger ale, bramley apple chunks, dates and cranberries
For those of us who have to avoid some or all citrus fruits, Christmas can be an interesting time of year. (I challenge you to find a mince pie that is void of candied peel) But add to that mulitple allergies AND a dislike of brandy and to be honest most festive treats are out of bounds. Even if you scour the freefrom aisles! This Last Minute Whisky & Ginger Mincemeat is allergen free, vegan friendly and takes just 20minutes to prepare. Sticky, sweet, sour and with a spicy kick from the ginger ale its packed full of festive flavours making it a great alternative to the traditional mincemeat. (Dairyfree, Eggfree, Vegan, Soyfree, Glutenfree, Nutfree)
Not a fan of traditional Christmas Cake? In need of a completely freefrom version for a family get together or work do? Then you’ve come to the right place!

AND it’s a perfect alternative for those of us who spend the festive season dodging the citrus peel that is snuck in every baked good known to man at this time of year. This recipe either makes one giant 5 layer showstopper or 12 mini cakes that make perfect festive foodie gifts.
Perfect for last minute Festive get togethers with friends, my Quick Onion Chutney is amazing with vegan cheese & piled high on crackers, uses everyday store cupboard ingredients AND is ready in just 20minutes! Its Dairyfree, Eggfree, Soyfree & Glutenfree too! The true beauty of this chutney though is how quickly you can make a batch, obviously the low sugar content & no salt is an added bonus, but when you are throwing together a last minute festive feast, the speed is definitely welcome! Oh and did I mention is it is ridiculously easy to make too?? Honestly the hardest thing about it is shredding the onions – which is completely optional as this would be just as nice with haphazardly cut diced onions!
These lovely little #FreefromChristmas Biscuits are glutenfree & nutfree and suitable for vegans! Make these simple sugar cookies with ground ginger, plain or switch out the icing sugar for a flavoured one to suit every occasion!

My Essential Vegan Christmas Cake Biscotti Recipe, can be made in advance and kept in pretty cellophane bags ready to hand out (also makes lovely goodie bags!)

These Easy Peasy Dairyfree Pop-in Sausage Rolls with Onion Chutney are called Pop-in Sausage Rolls for two reasons, mainly because if you pop in to ours round about Christmas time you are almost guaranteed to be fed a version of these! Usually either with onion chutney, cranberry sauce or apple sauce in depending on what we have in the fridge! These are free from dairy, egg, soya, nuts & sesame and the filling is gluten free so just swap the puff pastry for a gluten free option!
