Allergic to eggs? Try this alternative for Easter

For children with egg allergies or for families who avoid eating eggs, Easter can present a conundrum. Ceramic eggs from eggnots might just be the answer. They look and feel like eggs, are durable and they dye beautifully.

We tried dying these using eggnots’ dye kit, which includes reusable plastic dye cups and powdered food coloring that is mixed with water and white vinegar. The color was vibrant and the eggs dried very quickly. You can also use the recipe on the eggnots website to make dye with food coloring you have at home.

These “eggs” do not contain any of the top eight food allergens (dairy, egg, wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish). eggnots are not produced in a facility that processes any of these allergens.

Eggnots are vegan, safe for children with egg allergies, nonperishable and can be holiday keepsakes for years to come. They are also made in the U.S. and environmentally friendly.
