Apple Slices with Cinnamon

Buckwheat Pancakes with Bananas

Unlike most other pancake recipes, this one does not require eggs, making these pancakes ideal for people whose nasal polyps are linked to an allergy or intolerance to eggs. In fact, all key ingredients in this dessert—buckwheat, bananas, and brown rice syrup—are considered hypoallergenic, which means that they are among the foods that are least likely to cause allergic reactions in humans.

Quinoa Crepes with Applesauce

Quinoa is considered one of the least allergenic of all grains, making it a great grain for people with nasal polyps. Also applesauce is considered hypoallergenic.

Rice pudding with Pears and Cinnamon

Both rice and pears are among the least likely foods to cause allergic reactions in humans. But the benefits of this delicious dessert dish go beyond that. Pears are rich in vitamin C, a nutrient that may help reduce sensitivity to certain allergens. This is of course great news for people with nasal polyposis as this condition is typically linked to allergies.

Chocolate Free "Chocolate" Pudding

Good news: Even if your nasal polyps are linked to an allergy or intolerance to chocolate, you can still enjoy the mellow sweetness and irresistible texture of a "chocolate" pudding — as long as it's made with carob, like this one! Carob flour, made from the dried pots of the carob tree, has a mild cocoa-like flavor but is considered hypoallergenic. In addition to carob, this pudding contains millet and dates which are unlikely allergens, too.

Carrot Muffins

These scrumptious carrot muffins are gluten-free and therefore suitable for people who are sensitive to gluten. The carrots and flaxseed featured in these muffins can help combat chronic inflammation which is often associated with nasal polyps.

Low-Fat Apple and Raspberry Crumble

This anti-polyp recipe combines apples and raspberries, two superb sources of quercetin. Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that has been shown to effectively protect against allergic reactions. Quercetin works its protective magic by stabilizing the cell membranes of mast cells and basophils, thereby inhibiting histamine release.
