Desperate For Pancakes
0

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys and gals....

I am dying to eat something sweet for breakfast and french toast or pancakes sounds absolutely wonderful!!

PROBLEM IS:

..... I am allergic to corn, eggs, wheat (like the rest of us), nuts, dairy (all forms as far as I know, not willing to risk it)... well, and I think thats it. Ooooh no wait, Soy too. Uuuuugh

Anyway, I would Loooooooovvveeee a recipie for something along these lines.

Also, what type of syrup would be ok considering my multiple allergies..... Would just plain ol simple 100% maple syrup work?

Hope you guys got something, anything. I have a sweet tooth calling!

Gosh, I can't think of a pancake recipe that would work for you, but if you find one, maple syrup should work. I mean, maybe you'll find out you can't have that either, but it wouldn't contain any of the things you know you can't eat and I can't think where you'd get cross-contamination problems or anything with maple syrup.

Hi :-)

Ener-G Foods make a great egg replacer, I think it's potato based rather than corn. You could make pancakes with a rice/potato/tapioca flour mix (3 parts white rice flour, 1 part potato starch - NOT flour - 1 part tapico starch, 1 part brown rice flour) and use the egg replacer and rice milk.

I don't have my cookbook right by me offhand, but I'll look up my pancake/waffle recipe after I get back from Easter service.

I know how you feel....when I was first diagnosed, I was also shocked to find out I was allergic to: shellfish, crustaceans (these two I knew about..I get incredibly sick...nearly hospital sick), garlic, onions, all peppers, tomatoes, yeast, rice (this was a bugger....nearly ALL gluten-free baking contains rice!), beans, peas, bananas, grapes, buckwheat, and a few others.

After almost 18 months of being gluten-free, the only ones that remain are the peas/beans, onions, garlics, peppers, shellfish and yeast. I can now eat rice and the others...yay! :-)

Anyway, you should be able to revise most gluten-free recipes to work with the fava bean flour mix or rice flour mix like I mentioned above. You can also experiment with flours...I've found the *best* mixture for me to be white rice, potato and tapoica starch and amaranth flour. That provides a nice "bite" to the mix and is nearly like a normal wheat flour blend.

Good luck and let me know if you'd like my recipe :-)

Amaranth pancakes are tasty!

The recipe on the Bob's Red Mill package calls for:

1 egg (so you'd want to find the egg replacer the other person mentioned)

1/4 cup apple juice

1 tsp oil

1/4 cup amaranth flour

1/4 tapioca flour

3 tbsp arrowroot powder

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp salt

Add a little honey on top - or even better, fruit jam - and I love 'em.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
