Dairy Free & Gluten Free Blackberry Butter

Dairy Free Blackberry Butter #vegan #glutenfree

I’ve mentioned before that I dealt with a lot of stomach issues this past year, it took quite a bit but eventually I realized I had a serious intolerance to gluten. My oldest son has life threatening food allergies so we know this path well but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a HUGE adjustment. Of course, I did lose nearly 40 pounds so it’s not all bad. In saying that, I spend a lot of time cooking now and trying out new things, this Blackberry Butter was one of them.

I used Earth Balance Butter which is allergy friendly because it is dairy free and gluten free, they also have a soy free version available too. The taste is different than conventional butter but this is all we use so it’s our normal and I think it’s the closest tasting to “real” butter that you’ll find. It also substitutes well for butter in any recipe.

I bought honey and blackberries too. These are the only main ingredients. I actually think you could switch out the berries for strawberries, blueberries, etc. It would also make a great gift idea! I made this batch then gave some to my mom and dad who conveniently live next door, I came over with gifts of bread and butter-who wouldn’t like that?

Dairy Free & Gluten Free Blackberry Butter

Dairy Free & Gluten Free Blackberry Butter

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tub of Earth Balance Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 1 pint Blackberries (washed and dried)

Directions:

First, whip together the honey and butter until smooth and well mixed. Second, add in your blackberries. I did not want my blackberries to be completely mixed so I did leave it a bit chunky. You can certainly do it anyway you'd prefer. You can also add a little sugar if you would like a sweeter taste, for me personally, I try not to add sugar if I don't feel the need.

Once well mixed, place the butter into mason jars and into the refrigerator. Let them chill for about 30 minutes or so before serving. I think allergy free butters have a tendency to become more of an "oily" consistency went left at room temperature so placing it back in the refrigerator will give it a much more conventional feel and taste.

 

I served this with Udi’s Gluten Free French Rolls however, for completely allergy free bread, I would try Schar Gluten Free Breads. If you make it, let me know what you think! I thought it was awesome!

  1. I just stumbled into your blog while pinning egg-free recipes on Pinterest. Our two year old was recently diagnosed with an allergy to egg whites and I’ve long suspected him to also be sensitive to dairy. I have suffered eczema my entire life and my husband is asthmatic/ seasonal allergy prone. So basically it’s time to research and revamp our eating. (cue the long sigh and total irritation). I am a teacher on summer break, so a complete pantry clean out is on my chore list this week.

    So… I’m looking forward to following you (on Bloglovin) and plan to make this butter (with fresh picked strawberries!!) tomorrow. Thank you!!

  2. This looks really good – can’t wait to try it!
