Help! Need Some Substitutions For Baking...

5 posts in this topic

Hello everyone!

I'm new here. :) My son was recently tested for food sensitivities and WHEAT, DAIRY, SUNFLOWER, GREEN PEPPERS & SHELL FISH came back as highly reactive for him. In addition, moderately reactive but also very close behind the "high" reactors were SOY, TAPIOCA, COCONUT, CAROB, LECITHIN, WALNUT and several other things. ALMOND, CORN & EGGS are also IFFY. We have had him on the Feingold Diet program for the last 6 weeks which basically eliminates all artificial flavors, colors & preservatives, but we really saw a HUGE improvement in his behavior after removing gluten & dairy--those foods were making him hyperactive! A week after removing gluten & dairy, we had our calm, pleasant, fun-to-be-around son back again!! We were AMAZED and so grateful for going with our gut and having the food sensitivity test done on him.

I would like to find recipes for bread, pancakes, cookies, etc. for him that don't have any of those ingredients. This has been difficult! Commercially sold gluten-free items almost always have soy, tapioca, or sunflower added into their mixes which we are trying to avoid.

He does really well with rice products/flours and buckwheat, and we have replaced dairy milk with Pacific brand hemp milk. We are testing out gluten-free oats, as well as eggs. I am a baker by trade so I feel like I can get pretty creative with recipes, but I've been so focused on getting his basic diet on track that I've had little time to think about the secondary things.

Any suggestions would be welcomed and appreciated!!! :)

Hey and welcome!

I bake, too. I do bread with half sorghum and half tapioca. And I sell a ton of it!!! Way better than Udi's or anything else I've tried in the store. Basically you need the starch to lighten it up. I love sorghum over rice flour any day of the week.

I will send you a few more things that I do. I would share them with anyone here, but I don't want to post them publicly for anyone doing a search online. :lol: You know how valuable some recipes are.

Thank you both SO much for the info!! It's exactly what I was looking for!

Auzzi, my son can actually have some of the flours you mentioned: Amaranth flour, buckwheat flour, millet flour, and quinoa flour. I've never heard of teff flour, but I will look for it. I do have white & brown rice flours, buckwheat flour, quinoa flour, arrowroot & potato starch, but wasn't sure how to mix them to get the lighter gluten-free bread.

Thanks again!

I think you can use some of my recipes, if you just substitute for the almond meal I have in some of them.

You can take chia seed and soak it in cold water to make an egg "gel". ( I eat eggs, but I will play around with recipes because I don't do flax. ) You can also do this with soaking plain psyllium in warm water. Buckwheat and amaranth are both more sticky than some other flours and do not need as much "gum," if at all. Mashed sweet potato or sweet potato flour gives a nice result sometimes, as does adding canned pumpkin.

Gluten Free gum free yeast free vegan buckwheat mini loaf (will need to omit almond and substitute what you want to get the total flours to 1 and 1/4 cup)

_______

gluten-free Buckwheat pancake or flatbread (this is so easy and works so well, and it's Eggless !) just uses buckwheat, potato starch, and garbanzo flour

can't get the link to come up easily, hmm.

Take a heaping tablespoon each of buckwheat flour, potato starch, and garbanzo flour

pinch salt, pinch cream of tartar, dash baking soda about 1/8 teasp

spices, if desired, sweetener, if desired

mix with

teaspoon of olive or other oil

1/2 teas lemon juice or pure apple cider vinegar

small spoon of agave, molasses, or honey, if desired, or some stevia

enough water to make a thick pancake batter

Combine and pour into heated oiled skillet, cook until bubbles come thru and edges start to dry out a little, and the bottom is browned, then flip w/ spatula and finish cooking. Makes one pancake.

_________

This quick skillet bread works if you sub buckwheat for the almond meal, and use chia or flax gel or egg substitute. Amaranth and sorghum are the other two flours, and with molasses this is like cornbread, sans corn

scroll down the thread for recipe

_________

And of course, Bun In the Cup. This can be done eggless with the above mixture for buckwheat pancake flours. I have done this microwave recipe with many different flours, and with tweaking, all of them work, even with no eggs, if you use certain flours. Might take chia or flax gel for some types.

    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
