DIY Gingerbread House

Easy no bake, Nut Allergy Friendly Gingerbread House

Finding store bought, pre-made, anything that is safe can be extremely difficult for those of us with food allergies. The convenience is not always at our fingertips, but creativity is! Take a look in your cupboards, which I imagine are already filled with safe products, and build your own unique holiday creation. Forget the lame-o basic gingerbread house. At your holiday party, no two houses will be the same. Here at Nutless Life we used graham crackers. We have seen other creative builders use items such as saltine crackers or pretzels. Remember that this project is about the process not the product. Be silly make something crazy and as a family come together and simply have fun with it. When you are finished, please don’t forget to spread the Holiday joy by sharing your photos and recipes with the rest of us on Nutless Life Facebook Peanut/Tree Nut Free
