There are so many things to look forward to on Purim. It’s a day filled with lots of excitement and festivity.


For those with serious allergies, however, receiving Mishloach Manot can actually damper the day. Adults can usually get by, but a child looking through a Mishloach Manot won’t feel as festive if there’s nothing in there that they can eat.


This year, set a goal for yourself to include allergy-friendly items in your Mishloach Manot. We have SO MANY recipes that exclude major allergens to make it extra easy on your part.


As always, label all your food items so there’s no doubt for people who really need to know what was used.

  9. Rorie’s Chocolate Sunbutter Cups by Rorie Weisberg
    When I was a kid, peanut butter cups always won as my favorite chocolate treat, hands down. This absolutely outrageous version is dairy- and refined sugar-free, with no additives — just simple, healthy ingredients. Swapping the peanut butter for sunflower butter gives you that bold, salty, nutty feel while still being safe to send to any nut-free environment. I usually double the recipe because they vanish so fast.
  10. Rorie’s Famous Banana Nut Muffins 2.0 by Rorie Weisberg
    Presenting… my all-time favorite macro snack, improved. I featured this recipe five years ago, soon after I first started writing for Family Table.

  16. Homemade Soft Pretzels by Faigy GrossmannBack during the early days of COVID lockdown, when everyone was stuck at home and rummaging through the fridge all day, I quickly realized that scheduled family mealtimes would be necessary to add some much-needed structure to our days.While we were busy experimenting with all the flour and yeast we could hoard, these pretzels made it to our weekly rotation. They’re simple to make, delicious eaten fresh, and some-thing that everyone agreed to eat! Now, with Shabbos ending early, it’s the perfect thing to whip up for Melaveh Malkah.  

    This recipe may seem complicated, but it only takes 30 minutes from beginning to end to prepare the pretzels.

    Caramel popcorn is a good, old-fashioned treat the whole family will enjoy. Be sure to store it in an airtight container.
  18. Shena’s Best Brownies by Shena DominitzI have loved brownies ever since I can remember. My Aunt Debbie would bring her perfect little chocolate squares of heaven to our family Shabbat dinners, where we’d steal them before dinner. I love a specifically chewy yet cooked brownie. So keeping in mind the deliciousness of those brownies with the ease of a quick, save-the-day dessert, I share my fast and simple go-to brownies. You can always bring these as your dessert dish or have these as an afternoon snack! Watch Shena make these brownies on Shena’s Sweet Spice.

  19. Apple Blueberry Turnovers by Erin Grunstein
    Besides for hamantaschen, no dessert says “Purim” like something that’s upside-down. What better dessert to bring this to life than “turn” “overs”? These fruity filled pastries hit all the right notes!

    These sweet cinnamon-sugar pastries are made from pizza dough, so you can cut the prep and get to noshing quicker. You definitely want to use real butter here, not margarine.
  28. Cookie Brittle by Susie Fishbein
    This quick and easy recipe came from my friend Karen Zomick Finkelstein. Zomick is the key word here, as she comes from a famous name in kosher bakeries. This recipe is a great way to get a large batch of cookies on the table very quickly.
  29. Easy Egg-Free Chocolate Chip Bars from the Dining In Cookbook
    Delicious, all in one bowl, and very, very quick. In fact, you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry already. That makes it the perfect recipe to whip up when old friends suddenly call and say, “We’re in the neighborhood. May we drop in?”


  30. Iced Oatmeal Cookies by Sara and Yossi Goldstein
    These have become a new favorite around our house, and almost as frequently baked as chocolate chip cookies (gasp!). The combination of dark brown sugar, cozy cinnamon spice and oats makes these irresistibly delicious, and that’s before we even get to the icing! I pulse the oats to give more texture to the cookie and use only the egg yolks to add richness and chewiness.
  31. Cookies ’n’ Cream Jumbo Cookies by Gitty Friedman
    I left these cookies on the table to cool, and when I got back to put them away, all but one were gone. They’re soft, delicious, and of course quick and easy to make.
  32. Vanilla Chunk Cookies by Brynie Greisman
    When I first made these cookies a few months ago, whoever tasted them wanted the recipe right then! They’re soft and chewy thanks to the extra egg yolk and vanilla pudding and because they bake at a slightly lower temperature. Loaded with chunky goodness, it’s nice how they keep their shape (I wanted higher cookies as opposed to flatter spread-out ones) due to chilling the dough before baking. These are amazing straight from the freezer, as well as at room temperature.
  33. Whole-Wheat Strawberry Corn Muffins by Miriam (Pascal) Cohen
    These delicious muffins are packed with bright and fresh flavors of summer, and a great way to hang on to the sunshine all year long!
  34. Basic Biscotti by Faigy Grossmann
    Authentic biscotti are a traditional Italian pastry. They’re baked twice to yield a dry and crispy cookie, and they’re the perfect treat to dunk in a cup of coffee or tea. Since biscotti are made with less butter and sugar than most cookies, they’re considered a healthy cookie. Mandel-bread is the Jewish take on biscotti — with a little added oil.
  35. No-Bake Coffee Oreo Cheesecake Jars by Richelle Tarko
    No dairy oven? No problem! These no-bake coffee Oreo cheesecake jars are just the right amount of decadence to enhance your Shavuos (or random Tuesday if you so desire). These single-serve desserts are so fun to eat they’ll have even your biggest cheesecake hater reaching for more.
  36. Cinnamon Bun Bites by Victora Dwek

  37. Amazingly Soft ‘n Easy Rugelach by Faigy Grossman
    My wonderful daughter-in-law, Reizy, told me about this rugela dough a while ago, but somehow I never got around to testing it. When Chanie suggested offering bake-aheads for the upcoming Yamim Tovim, I decided that now’s the time! I’m so happy I tried it: the soft dough comes together in literally minutes, all you need is a pot and spoon, and they taste really good too! Use the suggested fillings below or your family’s favorites — b’tei’avon!
