I Want A Krispy Kreme!

I'm having one of those days...sitting in front of the t.v., eating my gluten-free cheese puffs, getting pelted with Krispy Kreme commercials... My husband says "Wow, a donut sure looks good right now!" I, of course reply, "How would you feel if you knew you could never have a Krispy Kreme again???" I just need a little support.

Just think to yourself: Krispy Kreme is bad!! In more ways than one even for non-celiacs!!!

We're eating healthy! I definitely don't miss donuts!! They are so bad for you in so many ways!

Our foods are good for us and super healthy! Just keep thinking that :)

I just had krispy kreme moment this weekend too. Doughnuts are my FAVORITE junk food so it is the hardest to deal with. When I have one of these moments, I indulge myself in my favorite gluten free dessert. I helps make the longing go away!

Feeling your pain,

I got the fix for you krispy kreme lovers!!!! I haven't made them yet because I just received my flour but go to betterbatter.com. Naomi has a well written blog & a recipe for krispy kreme donuts..... I usually don't read many blogs because most are just rantings but this one is a good one.I'm hoping to find time over the weekend to try the donuts....

I have also heard this flour blend is a good one........

Let me know if anyone tries to make the donuts....

Its sooooo not worth it. 10 minutes of "fun" and weeks of awfulness.

I don't have a gluten-free donut recipe, but it sounds like there are some out there.

I hope you were able to treat yourself to something sweet, gluten free and delicious.

I just discovered kinnitoos and they saved me from a meltdown last week. I have started a small "stash" of emergency gluten free treats for when I feel like I am going mad or going to "cheat."

If you want a good donut Celiac Specialties in Michigan make awesome ones. You can't even tell that they are gluten free. They also have a website and ship.

Kinnikinnick makes really good frozen chocolate-frosted gluten-free donuts--I think you can order them through their website.

I have had these before and they actually taste similar to a Krispy Kreme. I had the donut holes though, not the actual sized donuts. I was very impressed though.

I have beaten the urge for the Krispy Kreme with homemade gluten-free angel food cake. My husband and I are actually thinking of starting a gluten-free bakery in Murfreesboro, TN, just for moments like this. I'd like to know where Celiac Specialties is, as I am going to Michigan in a few weeks for a vacation. Thanks everyone. All of you help me so much and I appreciate it.

Give one of the gluten-free donut recipies a try sometime. I recently tried the one in The Gluten Free Gourmet Revised Edition by Bette Hagman. It was more like a cake donut than a Krispy Creme but I was satisfied. It made a lot and froze and warmed up beatifully.

Think of it this way - Krispy Creame equals sick.

I agree. They'll make you sick in more ways than one. Partially hydrogenated oils are like poison for your heart. I stopped them long before celiac. Even Celiac Specialties have the hyrogenated stuff in them. BHT too-BAAAAAD stuff IMHO. Baking your own is a good option as you could use canola oil.

You know, certain foods can trigger certain emotions...just as certain smells, etc. can do.

Think of a perfume that your mom put on all the time. After a while, smelling the fragrance on someone else may make you think of your mother. Or, if your father (or spouse) where's a certain aftershave...you get the same effect.

When I see, smell, or think of Krispy Kreme donuts, I think of myself as a little girl coming back with all of my cousins and family from the beach in Savannah. We always stopped at Krispy Kream for a treat. Now, as an adult with celiac, I have been known to stand in the bakery section of Kroger and sniff the box! :rolleyes: (This is when my hubby takes the baby and heads to the next aisle over) :P I have since quit going down the bakery aisle.

I started a thread one time (I think in the Baking forum) about having a KKreme donut craving. So, I totally empathize with you!

Treat yourself to another highfat, highcalorie dessert that is gluten-free. If you have a true sweet tooth craving, an apple dipped in peanut butter probably won't fill the void. ;)

Blessings. -Julie

I have tried this recipe from Naomi's blog (BTW, thank you mamaw, I first found her site thru one of your posts!) and although I have not made the donuts yet, I did try two of the variations of the recipe - the potato bread and the flat bread. I didn't have potato FLOUR, so I subbed coconut flour and everything came out fantastically. I will be making the donuts over the weekend though, so I will post back and let you know how it turns out! :D

The donuts came out really really good! I had my oil a little too hot so they weren't perfect, but they still had that really nice krispy kreme type texture. We made regular, chocolate dipped, powdered sugar, and lemon curd filled...talk about a sugar high! :D

It wasn't the better batter flour mixture I used tho, it was the mixture Naomi posted on the recipe, except I subbed coconut flour again for potato flour, which I cannot seem to find anywhere around here. I am definitely ordering some of the better batter flour mix, though. Seems like she has a real talent for getting stuff to taste the way it used to!

Wow, you are making me jealous!!! I didn't get to make the donuts yet but I did use the better batter flour for a couple of my wheat recipes we used to love.... I did not change anything except use this gluten-free flour blend & I must say no one knew the difference from the wheat recipe so I'm totally sold on this flour blend... Plus it is reasonably priced......

Did you use a deep fryer ? What temp did you set it at?

Okay, I can smell your donuts as I type this!!!!

      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Thank you everyone. I have scheduled a second opinion. He last biopsie came back and he is lactose intolerant.     
    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
