Scd-Friendly, Egg-Free Muffins And Quick Breads?
0

11 posts in this topic

I just got diagnosed with egg intolerance, dangit. I've been mostly baking SCD-style with almond flour, flax meal, and coconut flour because I don't do well on starchy foods. All my low starch, SCD-style recipes have a ton of eggs.

Now I'm at a complete loss for baking. Does anyone have any low-starch, egg-free recipes for muffins or quick breads?

Are you able to use the egg replacements? I don't know much about them. Hope you find something! :)

Can you do sour cream?

Are you okay with dairy, like yogurt or cheese or is that out, too ? I can't remember. :rolleyes:

How about gums, such as xanthan or guar ? Psyllium ? Chia ?

What about the EnerG Egg Replacer stuff, http://www.ener-g.com/wholesale/egg-replacer.html That is potato starch, tapioca, leavening, methylcellulose mixed in water, and it's only 1.5 teaspoons of the dry mix per "egg."

For egg substitute, you want to combine something with "lift," such as leavening, with something with gumminess, and for lower carb, something with protein.

Other gummier flours besides the almond, are amaranth and buckwheat. Small amounts of them added to any recipe, plus soaked chia and room temperature water to make a "gel," used in a recipe with baking powders or baking soda and an acidic, will get you roughly the same result as "egg". This is especially true for single or double serving sizes the bun in cup recipes for microwave. Pre soaking the buckwheat for 10 min to 30 min gives impressively gummy results.

How does your body react to tapioca ?

Can you do bean flours ? (and while we're on this subject, can anyone tell me where to find garbanzo flour that isn't Bob's red mill and wasn't processed with oats ?)

Coconut flour seems to be really sort of a pia in eggless recipes the few times I've attempted it. But it might be a counter reactive to the drying power and toughness of a bit of psyllium.

Sorry for all the questions, but trying to figure out what ingredients I need to do the prototypes.

Have a look at this one:

http://www.pure2raw.com/2011/09/gluten-free-low-sugar-pumpkin-muffins/

grain free pumpkin muffins

Original - Uses amaranth, buckwheat, arrowroot.

Tapioca can sub for arrowroot, and the other 2/3 can be something like half almond meal and 1/6 and 1/6 buckwheat/amaranth, total is one cup flour.

Says can sub more flax gels for the eggs, or 1/2 cup yogurt. Since the recipe already has flax, could use chia gels. If you can use yogurt, then, you're all set.

I wouldn't be stuck using the regular oven for these, I would try them out in the microwave first, in little cups, using a half recipe,M to see what they do.

You don't have to use sugar, can use stevia, for example, or go more savory and leave it out.

Thanks! I can do guar gum, psyllium, and chia. I forgot you can sub chia for eggs. I'm going to play with flax too. Cow dairy is iffy, sometimes I react sometimes not. I seem to be back to tolerating goats milk so might be able to find goat sour cream.

I can do enough starch to try the Ener-G egg replacer. I might give that a go in my regular almond meal recipe.

Amaranth or buckwheat taste great and that recipe looks tasty but it's still kind of a heavy carb load for me in the morning. If I eat too much starch at breakfast I'm pooped and starving by lunch. Maybe if I just have one with some sausage... This no-egg trial is a pain. Fooey.

Or you could try making yogurt out of the goat's milk, using a dab of regular yogurt.

I bet if you put some chia into some canned coconut milk, say a tablespoon into a half cup, and then added a bit of buckwheat, say 2 tblsps, the concoction would be Pretty Thick after a short soaking. Then you could add almond meal, oil, and some leavening and try it as a bun in cup microwave thing.

You might want to try a form of beans for breakfast, IF you can find or prepare some that don't have cross contamination, for a protein. Beans with olive oil, cumin, vinegar are filling and don't digest too quickly.

What a PIA about the eggs. I would be so annoyed. :angry::o

Yeah, the jury is still out. I had a really strong response to eggs on an IgG test so I have to eliminate/challenge to be sure. Thing is, I tend to feel really awful on Monday and I usually make omelets or bake on the weekends. <_< I also came up positive for soy on the IgG test and I know soy doesn't agree with me. Dairy came back negative so I'm praying I've been mistaking egg reactions for dairy and I'll have dairy back. I'd happily trade eggs for dairy!

Thanks for the help! I'll try the chia/buckwheat/coconut milk in a few days when I get a chance to shop for them. That sounds better than the methylcellulose in the Ener-G stuff. I really prefer cooking from whole foods. :)

Beans for breakfast isn't a bad idea, though that's usually what I have for lunch. I'm also eyeing my jar of peanut butter.

Someone suggested I try tinned pumpkin to replace eggs or butter. It may just work. Also, you an grind maybe....7 or 8 blanched almonds with a tablespoon or two of water, and it makes a creamy-pastey thing, and it can replace eggs as well.

With your peanut butter, use that in the milk substitute, and blend the peanut butter, milk, whatever fruit you're allowed, and some whey powder if you can have it...and you've got yourself a lovely "milkshake". OR dairy-free ice cream?

Have you seen this website? www.elanaspantry.com. I really like her paleo bread recipe. She has similar recipes for banana bread and pumpkin bread although I haven't tried those. I also do the breakfast bread. I love it because there is no flour at all - uses almond butter as the base. I've never tried to eliminate the egg but if you read the comments section, someone almost always tries an egg replacer and posts how it went.

You also might like the Spunky Coconut (www.spunkycoconut.com). She has posted some doughnut recipes recently using psyllium husk powder which I've never used, but the pictures look amazing! She mostly uses coconut flour, and has quite a few egg-free recipes on her site.

I have used egg replacer successfully in Elana's paleo banana bread.

    • 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.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
