Carl Kravats
Bakery owner Debbie Adler always loved healthier sweets. But when her son was born with life-threatening allergies she revamped all of her goodies so they're dairy, egg, soy, sugar, gluten, and nut-free. She shares these scrumptious recipes from her new book Sweet Debbie's Organic Treats.

Chocoholic Cupcakes

No need for a twelve-step program here, because being addicted to chocolate is a good thing. Not only do you get the good stuff that chocolate brings, but there's also a potassium boost thanks to the avocado in the frosting. The avocado adds not only health benefits but a smooth creaminess, and no one but you will know it's in there.

Here is how you can help your child cope with food allergies.

Girl Scout Brownies

Samoas are one of the world's most beloved Girl Scout cookies. Of course, those delicious cookies are filled with allergens, not to mention hydrogenated fats and sugar. I put a healthier spin on this longtime fave and reincarnated it as a brownie.
