Top Tips to Nut-Free Baking

.

Hi everyone, it’s Tiff here – GetBuzzing’s resident recipe developer! For those of you who follow GetBuzzing on social media or regularly check out their blog, you’ll know that I love to create delicious recipes using all of the delicious flavour of bars that GetBuzzing has to offer. But for a bit of a change this blog post is all about nut-free baking – something that the GetBuzzing team are very passionate about.

Why nut-free?

Nut allergies are becoming increasingly prevalent, and so whether you’re baking for a family member or friend with a known allergy, or baking for a bigger crowd, nut-free baking is the safest way to ensure that you’re not putting those with allergies at risk. Some people don’t like nuts either, so nut-free baking will allow you to keep them happy too!

How to go nut-free

  1. Every flavour of GetBuzzing’s bars are nut-free, and so using these in your baking is a good way to start. Check out the many recipes I’ve created using these on the rest of the blog!
  2. Nuts bring flavour and texture to bakes, so look for alternatives that you can swap in. Nut butter can be replaced with tahini or seed butter, but these can be a little bit bitter, so you might need to add extra sweetness. Chopped nuts can be swapped for pumpkin or sunflower seeds as these have a similar crunchy texture, making them ideal for stirring in or topping off your bakes
  3. If you’re a gluten- and nut-free baker, when a recipe calls for ground almonds, try coconut flour or a gluten-free flour instead. These have a similar fine texture to ground almonds, but are safer alternatives for those with a nut allergy
  4. Oils – if a recipe calls for a nut oil, feel free to try rapeseed oil or olive oil instead
