    Default Sweet stodge replacement recipe ideas please

    I know you lot are fantastic when it comes to the obscure so I will just fill you in on the background. I have been suffering with migraine type issues for the last year and hubby has had issues forever so we have finally had intolerance tests done and they advise you try to not have foods from the list for 3 months then introduce them back. Whilst I am not happy with some I can manage. However I am a sucker for my desserts, cakes and pastries and am after ideas for something more elaborate than raw fruit to overcome the loss.

    So intolerance relating to my sweet, stodgy wants:-

    Yeast - Avoid cheese, dried fruit, fruit juice, baked goods and yeast extract.
    Rice Milk - be careful with brown rice less so white rice
    Raspberries
    Chestnuts
    Lemons - other citrus should be fine
    Mozerella - be careful with cheese and dairy
    Barley
    Butter - be careful with all dairy
    Wheat, ground - avoid a whole heap of things.

    So far I have come up with coconut macaroons and meringue. Any ideas?

    Thank you as always

    That's an unusual list, I have been on a low sugar regime for 3 years now due intolerance and also lost close on 3 stone in weight to avoid diabetes. Basically it's been no chocolate or shop bought cakes, eating out has almost become impossible, especially when I had the Gall stones adding to the problem. Lactose free helps, didn't have to omit dairy completely, sugar has been replaced with Stevia, sweets are still sweet, just sugar less. Scones and crumbles are top of my list for puddings, have to be home made though, sugar free jams and biscuits end up making things like cheesecakes along with sugar free jellies to make trifles , my better half is very inventive.

    something based on oatmeal, coconut milk and treacle ?

    Generally, if you work out a few basic ingredients you can eat and the do a Google on them, I reckon you'll turn up a stack of different recipes.

    Baked bananas with honey,

    Zabaglione using the egg yolks from your meringues and sweet marsala/sherry. I used to make this often but can't remember the recipe.

    Interesting that lemons are on your list - the things my wife (who gets migraines) has to avoid are oranges and red wine.

    My wife also made a dessert for someone with a list of intolerances, and I think it was some kind of nut flour as the basis. I shall check
