Looking For Cookie Recipes

3 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any sugar cookie recipes or mixes that you have tried that were good? Our daughter is allergic to nuts and many of the mixes have almond or nut meal in them. I haven't had any luck. Also, do you have any suggestions for snacks or lunch items. She is 4 and I send her lunch with her to preschool. She is a bit picky and have been sending lunch meat and cheese wraps, hard-boiled eggs, gluten-free mac and cheese, but could use some more ideas.

My kids love beanies and weanies. I just slice gluten-free hotdogs in Bush's beans and they love them. Have you tried gluten-free chicken nuggets? I make my own. Or just grilled chicken slices? My son loves to dip them in dressing or BBQ sauce. We also make homemade rice crispy treats and Jello Jigglers.

These are not the most nutritious choices, but they are competitive with what their gluten-free friends bring to preschool/school so they do not feel left out.

Lately, I have been trying some gluten-free muffin recipes from Betty Hagman and my preschooler is loving them. I made banana muffins and Teff flour muffins. What a hit! Both are in her Comfort Foods cookbook.

Good luck. I have recipes if you need any of these and I bet alot of them are on here.

Looking for lunch ideas was one of the first things I looked for on this board. Have you tried the search section? I put in keyword lunch and looked under the parents etc. post section. There are some good ideas there.

Envirokids makes a snack bar that is made from their gluten free cereals. They can be found at Whole Foods and some mainstream stores like Ralphs which is an affiliate of Kroger.

Fruit Leather is good and easy to send to school. The brand we buy is Stretch Island, their organic variety and make sure that the ones we get list just the fruit such as the grape.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
