25 Nut-free, Egg-free, & Grain-free Recipes

Recipes without grains, nuts, AND eggs? Do such things exist?

It may seem like a tall order to fill, but yes! There are recipes out there without eggs, nuts, and grains…and they taste quite good!

As part of my healing protocol, I’ve been dipping my toe in the world of nut-free eating. As much as I love nuts, they can easily be overdone when you’re not eating sweet fruits, grains, beans, legumes, and dairy (and when you’re limiting eggs). So I’ve had some fun going on somewhat of a “dig” and excavating the web for recipes that are both nut-free AND grain-free AND egg-free. Many of the recipes I dug up were also vegan, so I’ve noted that beside each recipe where it applies.

Here’s what I found:

Raw Power Salad from Daily Bites (vegan)

Lightly Glazed Carrot & Parsnip Coins from Go Dairy Free (vegan)

Rustic Roasted Beet & Sweet Potato Salad from Family Fresh Cooking (omit nuts)

  1. Thank you! I am vegan, grain-free, and allergic to some nuts. I have lots of recipes, but am always on the lookout for more!

    • I would love some recipes if you have any, specifically kid friendly. My 3 year old is allergic to eggs and nuts and I’d like to go grain free, but can’t find any good recipes the whole family will eat.

  2. Thanks for this compilation – I am on the AI protocol and am always in the market for recipe inspiration!!

  3. So much deliciousness!! Love this post Hallie, checking some out now :)

  4. Totally a predicament… I was left wondering “what DO you eat?”

    Then I thought of some of my favourites:

    15-Minute Garlic Basil Marinara with Zucchini Noodles

    Nut-Free and Seed-Free Raw Lasagna

    Spinach Orange Yam Soup

    Raw Sweet Potato Sliders

    Or these jackfruit pulled pork wraps

    Wow, that wasn’t so bad, was it? :)

  5. So many choices–and I can even have most of them! Whoo hoo! Thanks so much for including my nori crackers, too. :)

  6. Nut-free, grain-free awesomeness! Yes! Thank you SO much for including me in this post :)

  7. Awesome list! Thanks for sharing!

  8. What a great list of yummies! Thank you for sharing!
