8 posts in this topic

Hi, i'm new to this celiac board and have been trying to make pancakes gluten free and so far they are not turning out as i hoped.

The always turn out like gooey like, but not at the same time. They are sorta like oatmeal would be if you fried it after you cooked it

on the stove for eating as a hot ceral. they seem to be fully cooked and taste good but they are very wet like, is there a way to change

this or a flour that works better for this purpouse? any recopes idea's or experince's that are like i have been having welcome. I have made

bread and it turned out great and delicous, unlike the tapioca flour bread i bought at walmart which was dry and tasteless and was like

eating bread that got lefft out and partialy dried before eating very very dry. please help!

Welcome, Andy!

 

What flour/mix are you using right now?  If you frequently shop at Walmart, check out gluten-free Bisquick.  I like the pancake recipe, very basic and good.  It is also good for making cookies and breading fried stuff.  The other two things I always keep in my pantry are King Arthur Flour(KAF) gluten-free Baking mix, and Pamelas gluten-free Baking and Pancake mix.  The pamelas makes great pancakes, but their recipe makes them very thin, so I cut out at least a quarter of the liquid (I like thicker, puffier pancakes).  The KAF mix basically can be treated as self rising flour(replaces flour, leavener, and salt) in any gluteny recipe, except bread since that needs special treatment.  It also makes good pancakes.  If you sub it in to a recipe that calls for regular gluten flour, measure it scantly as it is a little more dense.    All three of these mixes have a lot of recipes for them on the company website and I like that a lot.

 

Making your own bread is definitely going to give you the most satisfaction, especially when you just transitioned.  The tapioca loaves are horrible, and I don't know why those are even still sold!  LOL.  The Schar shelf stable breads are pretty good, and most people seem to buy frozen breads for sandwiches and such.  There are a lot of brands that are good.

thank you for your reply, i got the bisquick mix as i already was buying it for pancakes before. I always add a little sugar, sometimes a little vannilla, a litttle oil and eggs so i followed the recipe on the box and added the sugar and eggs and a little oil they turned out REALLY good almost couldn't tell the differ3ence. I used the recipe for bread that was posted for sandwich bread another poster makes only i forgot to buy white rice flour so i used oat flour instead of the rice and added a med. hanful of coconut flours and more sugar then they had listed so it would have a little more flavor and it turned out so yummy, it was easier then regular as you don't knead it just beat and pour a little diffrent texture then gluten breads but it was so dang good. Again thank you for the advice and support.

That is the plus side to gluten-free bread baking... just mix it and throw it in the pan!

I agree, Bisquick makes really good gluten free pancake mix. If you want something healthier, I also like Hodgson Mills gluten-free pancake/waffle mix with flax. It's not as light and fluffy, but it has more protein and it's still yummy.

I haven't tried it yet but I saw Krusteaz has a gluten-free pancake/waffle mix now too.  I like their gluten formula so I'm hoping these are good as well!  I bought some yesterday.

I make coconut flax pancakes.  They are heavy but good.

 

1/4c melted coconut oil

2 scoops protein powder (Vega)

1 tsp vanilla

dash salt

Tbsp cinnamon

1 1/2 - 2c coconut milk and /or water

1/2 tsp baking powder

1tsp bee pollen (optional)

1/4 c hemp seeds

1/2-3/4c ground flax

8 eggs

1/2 c coconut flour

 

I add ingredients in the order listed.  The coconut flour can REALLY suck up the liquid so if it gets too thick as it sits, add more water.  You'll need to spread the pancake batter a bit, it will mostly spread on its own.  I cook it in bacon grease. I freeze the extras and reheat them the next day or too.

 

The protein powder is sweetened with stevia. If I did not have that I would add stevia and cocoa, and possibly use a bit less liquid.

 

They'd be perfectly healthy if it wasn't for the syrup my boys pour on.  LOL

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
