May is Celiac Disease Awareness month. The whole month is designated to spreading awareness about Celiac Disease, and how it impacts the lives of the people living with Celiac Disease. Although my daughters and I are not Celiac (we are Non-Celiac Gluten-Intolerant) we have some of the same symptoms when we eat gluten.
My daughters both get irritable (OK, OK, me too), headaches, stomach aches, and restroom issues when they eat gluten. All three of us feel terrible for at least a week, if not longer. In addition the symptoms my girls feel, I also get a terrible case of “brain fog” and become lethargic. Sound familiar?
One thing that many people do not know is that those who are Celiac or Gluten-Intolerant are often also allergic to other foods, or have other intolerance’s. When my girls were first diagnosed Non-Celiac Gluten-Intolerant, my oldest also tested intolerant to dairy and eggs and my youngest to peanuts. Needless to say, we had a long road to discovering what foods our whole family could eat together.
Luckily we have come a long way in the last several years. More people are aware of food allergies and more brands are offering safe delicious foods for us to enjoy.
We often cook at home now because of the variety of gluten-free foods offered in our local grocery stores. Being able to pick up a bag of gluten-free flour, dairy-free milk, or dairy-free gluten-free chocolate chips has really helped us make our own meals and desserts at home, and has helped keep our family safe from cross contamination.
One of the foods we enjoy the most are donuts. If you have read any of my other donut posts, you know that we eat a donut every Friday to celebrate finishing the week. Enjoy Life Foods makes allergy friendly chocolate bars, and baking chips and we would not be able to enjoy our chocolate donuts without them.
If you are not familiar with Enjoy Life Products I recommend checking them out. Their products are Non-GMO and free from:

This year for Celiac Disease Awareness Month I wanted to create a delicious and allergy friendly recipe that everyone can enjoy. These Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Espresso Donuts are tender, moist, and free from most allergens (if not all). I hope you enjoy them and I urge to to share them with your family and friends.
