This past year I had let Alistaire slide in his diet. Not a good thing. It is so easy though to feel sorry for him, and let him have a treat here and there. Things he shouldn’t have – be it a cookie from the store, or a bagel, and so on. Things that won’t cause anaphylaxis, but in the end make his stomach hurt, his skin very bad and make him miserable. So I have gotten the family back on track, and cut back out wheat from prepared foods. No bread bought from stores. No crackers. No nothing. His allergy to wheat is an odd one – if I use organic flour, or grind flour from wheat berries we grow, no issues. But…cheap white flour in processed food is very bad for him, he reacts painfully. So this dessert is one he can enjoy. The gluten-free graham crackers are not easy to find, but you can source them online. And little man? He loved this dessert! It is light, and satisfying.
