Almond Meal Substitution?

are you also nut and dair sensitive, is that why you're asking, or because you just don't have either of those things on hand at the mo?

I'm not sure why the original recipe uses almond meal specifically as a sub for the powdered milk, the textures are completely different, and any bread recipe I've seen usually only uses a couple of tablespoons of powdered milk, not half a cup! Unless they're just looking for a calcium ingredient...?

I'd suggest you can probably go without either entirely. I can't find a good reason why dairy is required in a bread recipe to begin with.

I have allergy to all nuts, peanuts, milk casein, honey, kiwi, orange aroma (orange oil in peels) and I'm lactose and fructose intolerant.

I was wondering the same thing. Usually the bread recipe that I read had water instead of milk in it.

How about using Vance's DariFree, which would be a sub for dry milk?

I just had another thought. I wonder if you could use some flaxseed meal in lieu of the almond meal in this recipe??? Or possibly use 1/4 c. flaxseed meal and a bit more flour? I know you'd be taking a chance how it may turn out...but I've baked a brick now and then. :lol:

I never heard about Vance's DeriFree. Thank you.

Yesterday I made that Challah that I wanted. I didn't had Bette Batter flour and I made my own. the process was very funny. I was thinking that if somebody saw me from you guys, you would laugh very hard. All kitchen was up-side-down. OMG. Currently I live in home where kitchen counter is only 1 1/2 yards long with sink and place for dishes. I got 1/2 yard x 1/4 yard left for any work. Then I have round kitchen table in middle and fridge on other side of kitchen. If somebody sits down, the other person can't go through. Me, baker and stuck in this kithen. Ach... :angry:

Yesterday the Challah was very good. I ate 3 huge slices. Today is good, but today I know that that thing is gluten free. :(

I bet you were really cute! :lol: And does that space hold your new mixer, too?

Bummer about the bread...it's always good the first day and then the second day it usually does taste gluten-free. Maybe one of these days we'll come up with a real winner. I'm waiting and waiting and waiting. :blink: Did you try freezing the bread? I usually slice it and then put two pieces in a foldover sandwich bag and then it goes into a Ziploc bag.

I found a place for my mixer. It's between two chairs by the wall on top of small cabinet.

Holy cow!!! You are really short on space! Hang onto that mixer so it doesn't end up on the floor!!!

Your kitchen is really cute, even though it's tiny. ;)

Hooray for you..experimenting with the bread! I just got my mixer. I took it out of the box yesterday, but didn't run it yet. I'm a little scared of it. LOL :blink:

With your mixer on that little stand it kind of makes me nervous that it could get bumped and topple over. Could you sit it at an angle so it's on the stand a bit more? :o

I will put my new mixer on table when it will be in use. I did it yesterday. The mixer is holding this little cabinet together. :lol::lol: :lol:

The Challah that I baked was huge. I used 10x15 pan and it was full. I will post the recipe later. The first day I was in love with it. The second - it was ok. Today I made French toast from it - very good.

Milk makes the bread softer.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
