Udi's Muffins
0

9 posts in this topic

I am so happy I found these!!

I have always been a muffin junkie. I have been mourning the loss of chocolate chip Muffins from Dunkin Donuts. I came across Udi's brand of double chocolate muffins in a freezer near the bakery in the supermarket. at 7.99 for a box of FOUR I was like omg..I cant buy these..thats SO EXPENSIVE!! but I did and when I took the first bite I was nervous it would be NASTY. But it was REALLY good! A little grainy but pretty decent. So excited!

If you have a muffin craving in the future, they are very simple to make just as good gluten free. And for quite a bit cheaper. :) That is, if you are so inclined... :)

They sure are easy and a great way to use up bananas or blueberries before they turn bad. I really like the Pamela's baking mix for muffins. So easy to make and I find they freeze well. If I don't freeze half the batch I will eat them all the first day.

Amen to using up ingredients! Strawberry banana and flax muffins are one of my favourites, as is banana nut chocolate and lemon poppyseed. I have not yet tried any baking mixes but I have heard many good comments regarding Pamela's mixes.

...and don't forget Pineapple Coconut or Peach Almond. :P

http://leitesculinaria.com/58610/recipes-gluten-free-banana-bread.html The secret is roasting the bananas first for better flavour. I simply add some flax and very good chocolate which I cut into chunks and slivers using my knife. This makes excellent banana bread but also very good muffins! Use whatever blend you have on hand for this. I make my own blends but you do not need to for muffins as they are so forgiving.

How about this version with bourbon? Simply substitute your favourite blend for the 2 cups of flour (as long as it is basic including starches such as tapioca and white rice flour - nothing crazy or wild here).

Off the topic but this site also contains the recipe for the world's best gluten-free chocolate chip cookies by the Gluten Free Girl and the Chef. The secret here is to refrigerate the dough for 48 hours. This is the only recipe you will ever want to use. Ever.

Thank you much! I needed some mroe recipes. I find a lot of my old recipes do not work converted to gluten-free, simply because wheat is just what MADE the recipe! But, I'm working on it though. I'll win in the end, I will.

One of my favourite sites with contemporary gluten-free recipes is www.glutenfreegoddess.com. Her brownies are delicious as well.

If I crave something, I simply find a way to make it such as crepes, biscuits, scones, pizza crust, cookies, cakes, breads, bagels, pastry and so on. The only things I have not mastered at this point are puff pastry, phyllo pastry, croissants and yeast (not cake) doughnuts.

And yes, you WILL win!

    • I think the idea of grinding your own at home stems from the thought that flavored coffees might be ground on the same machines.  The grinders in the grocery are not cleaned between uses.  However, I have not found a flavored coffee bean that had gluten, so it's probably not a real concern.  For coffee that comes from a factory ground, I wouldn't worry at all.   Machines would be cleaned between flavors and nothing but coffee could be made on the machines or even in the same building ( everything made would taste/ smell like coffee). if you still have doubts - I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium a few years back.  This is held every few years in different countries for medical professionals that study and treat Celiac.  They present research, etc.  All food served was gluten-free.  We drank a lot of plain, already ground, coffee!  A lot!   Coffee is not on any lists as a gluten containing food.  Talking legitimate organizations - not some blogger or pseudo- science website.   After all this, if you still doubt that coffee is gluten free...... Then don't drink it!  It leaves more for me!    
    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
