Figgy Pudding (Paleo, Gluten Free) + Food Allergy Freedom

Paleo and gluten free Figgy Pudding – The holiday classic that inspired a Christmas ballad gets a healthy makeover!

This Figgy Pudding is a delicious and decadent dessert from the book Nourishing Holiday by Jaclyn Harwell of The Family That Heals Together and I’m so excited to share the recipe with you! But before I do, I want to share an amazing resource for those of you looking for allergen-free holiday recipes for yourself or your family members.

I remember back when I first learned about my gluten and dairy sensitivity. Holidays were extremely stressful for me because I knew that I couldn’t eat most things on the menu if I was going to a dinner hosted by a friend or a family member. I didn’t want to be rude to the host and tell them I couldn’t eat the dishes that they worked so hard to prepare. And when I was REALLY new to the gluten and dairy free lifestyle, even hosting holiday dinners myself was a daunting task because I didn’t know how to cook delicious meals without using the most common ingredients in recipes that I’ve been making for years.

Which is why when I came across this amazing bundle of 9 holiday eCookbooks for restricted diets called Food Allergy Freedom Collection, I couldn’t wait to share with you! I so wish I had something like this when I first started out.

This bundle consists of 280 mouthwatering, allergy-friendly holiday recipes. Whether you need to avoid:

  • Gluten
  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Nuts
  • Grains
  • Refined Sugar
  • OR you eat paleo, GAPS, vegan, or even AIP…

you’ll find something you can make during the holidays, and your guests won’t even know that they are a healthy alternative!

Some of recipes include: fresh-baked bread without grains, candy without corn syrup, fluffy and moist cakes, and classic recipes like pumpkin pie, turkey gravy, and even dinner rolls. The bundle also consists of a 4-week meal plan, including desserts and snacks, free of all the common allergens.

And my FAVORITE part of this bundle is that YOU GET TO PICK YOUR OWN PRICE. For REAL, though… All the books are worth over $110, but just for today and tomorrow (11/13-11/14 at 11:59pm Eastern Time) you can get everything on a pay-what-you-want basis.

And if you do choose to pay $20 or more, you’ll also get a BONUS ECOURSE of tips for cooking around major food allergens, so you can recreate your favorite family recipes to make them allergy-friendly (worth $40 by itself!). This is such a great deal, so I really hope you take advantage!

Remember – this deal only lasts 2 days so go get it today!

And finally, I want to share this Figgy Pudding recipe, which is one of the 280 holiday recipes from the Food Allergy Freedom Collection. Hope you enjoy this beautiful yummy dessert as much as I did!

    I have a few questions!
    1) Do you think these could be prepared ahead of time and heated up later?
    2) What is the sauce on top of them? Is that just extra honey?
    3) I think I might need to triple the recipe…any suggestions for cooking times and for this in general?

  2. Annette

    Please could I ask are the figsand dates for this recipe dried or fresh? Looking forward to making this for my family…

  3. Tiffany Cohen

    Where does the honey come in? Listed in ingredients…but not in the recipe.

    That said, this is excellent without the honey. A great dessert for those colder months.

      Sorry about that! I think I may have added it in my accident. Just fixed it. So glad you enjoyed it!
