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

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Right, usually they do an endoscopy after a positive blood antibody test.  The biopsy confirms the antibody results.  Doing them in the reverse order doesn't hurt anything though.  Sometimes people "fail" the antibody tests but still have gut damage.  Not everybody makes the same antibodies or in the same quantities.  Anyway, you should make sure they are doing the complete celiac antibody panel, not just a ttg test. And don't worry if the celiac tests are positive for gliaden antibodies.  Going gluten-free is an adjustment to your diet. Quite a few people around here have managed to adjust successfully.  It takes some effort, but anything worthwhile does they say.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      I don't have scotomas but you might find more help on a forum dedicated to vision issues.  Here are a couple I found.  the last link is a Yahoo search for "eye forum"  There may be others found if you try a search on Google. http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Eye-Care/show/90 http://www.healthboards.com/boards/eye-vision/ https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=eye+forum&ei=UTF-8&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-003
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      BTW, all first degree relatives of celiacs are supposed to be tested for celiac every 2 years in the absence of symptoms -- immediately if symptoms present. Your kids, your parents & all siblings should be tested. And that goes for your brothers kids too.
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I agree completely with cyclinglady! Do you even know that there is such a thing called silent celiac? No symptoms at all but the villi are damaged.  I see you joined in 2009. Why? Is that when your brother was diagnosed? IMHO you need to do a lot of research & find out just exactly what you're risking. 
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      What?  Be sure that next endoscopy tests you for lymphoma (cancer) as well!   Seriously.  You need to do some research as your knowledge of celiac disease is lacking.  Did you fail the entire celiac panel?  Or did your doctor/insurance save cash and just order the very good (but does not catch all celiacs) TTG IgA?  You have a family history, a positive biopsy, what more do you need?  You do realize that this is not about just giving up gluten, don't you?  We just had a member join this year who was told years ago that her tests were "inconclusive" and that she now has suffered with lymphoma (cancer)? Ugh!   Endoscopy in 10 years?  Who would even wait 10 years?  This isn't colon cancer and polyps!   Are you talking about a colonoscopy?  Are you even sure you had an endoscopy?   Be sure you have your bones checked too.....and forget the breath.  You might not have any teeth and implants will be out since your bones will be compromised. Sorry, if I come on strong, but when I was diagnosed I had no tummy issues.  A few months later, my bones began breaking.  I was undiagnosed for a long time because of mis-informed doctors.  At least it was not stupidity on my part.   So, I urge you to research this disease more!  Hopefully you'll ward on another autoimmune disorder by remaining gluten free.  Find what celiac blood tests were actually taken!  Even if you do not think you have celiac disease, something has caused villi damage -- like a parasite, milk, or something......even more sinister! Good luck!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
