Gluten-Free/casein-Free Scones - Need Help
0

8 posts in this topic

I've gone strict dairy free and I'm having a bit of trouble baking my occasional grain treats. I modified my gluten-free scones recipe and the scones had a great flavor but they were kind of dry and crumbly compared to making them with butter. Can someone suggest how to make these a bit less dry?

1 c brown rice flour

1 c oat flour

2 T Sucanat dried cane juice

1 1/2 t baking soda

1 t guar gum (avoiding xanthan gum)

1/3 c coconut oil (subbed for butter)

1 egg

1/2 c coconut milk (sub for milk)

Let batter rest to absorb liquid, make into scones, put on greased sheet, bake 400F for 15-20 min.

Thanks!

My first try would be to add one or two tablespoons of applesauce and switch to palm oil shortening instead of coconut oil.

This might just be mad...but maybe try to add a slight bit of honey?

Drink a cup of coffee with them?

More oil? They say butter goes further in gluten-free, I don't know if the same is true with coconut.

I love using coconut oil but don't know a thing about using it as a sub.

Thanks everyone! I did have coffee with them. :lol:

I'll see if I can find some palm oil shortening because that sounds like it would be the closest sub or butter. I have some applesauce in the pantry so I can try adding a little. I'd hate to switch from sucanat to honey as much as I love honey. I've never tried baking with sucanat before and I loved the flavor. Even better, it didn't dissolve completely so the scones were beautifully flecked with little bits of brown sucanat.

Maybe add just a touch more of coconut oil? I've subbed coconut oil in a lot of recipes and haven't had a problem with it being dry but I was always subbing for other oils, not butter. But you could also try grapeseed oil. My other thought is that coconut milk is much thicker than regular milk so you might be getting less liquid there. You could add a little more coconut milk or sub almond milk or rice milk which might be closer to regular.

Youu can just add the honey- one or two tablespoons. That's a really good idea, honey gives a moister crumb and holds things together.

    • egs1707. Are you in Canada?  It's NOT a good idea to go gluten free between now & the GI appt. and here's why.... MOST of us have MUCH stronger reactions to gluten when we go back on it for the endoscopy. A lot of people have had such strong reactions that they have been entirely unable to complete the challenge and have to call it quits. This means they never get an official dx. It's your call, you make the choice. However, I will say that you don't have to eat a lot of gluten, a couple saltines or a slice of bread per day. 
    • You mentioned the tight head. Yes, both my celiac sibling and I had head pressure. Mine was horrible last glutening with eye pain as well. Like someone put a vice around my temples. I swore it felt like a parasite infected my gut, thyroid and brain. It is going away mostly, still have it on and off a bit.  My brother said his naturopath informed him some celiacs get a bit of inflammation in the brain.   
    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!
