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.

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
