I'm interested in making my own bread. We buy Udi's now and we really like it but I'm thinking I could try my have at it. Any good ( easy) recipes out there? Preferably vegan or without eggs.

There must be hundreds of recipes out there, and dozens of mixes. The mixes are probably the way to start, especially if you can find them in bulk or on sale. Bread recipes usually call for multiple kinds of flour and things like xanthan gum, gelatin, etc. If you don't want to invest in all of those items and the space they will take in your house, go with the mixes - try a few until you find one you like. If you really like to bake, then look into gluten-free bread cookbooks - there are plenty out there, more all the time. I started with Bette Hagman's books, and like a lot of her recipes, but gluten-free bread baking is always iffy - you may need to repeat recipes several times and monkey with times and temperatures and ingredients until they come out right in your oven in your house. Don't be afraid to fail - you can always make your mistakes into crumbs or croutons and try again. We will be here with advice!

If you are trying to avoid eggs, look for gluten free recipes that contain buckwheat flour, amaranth flour, and almond flour or meal, which are all "stickier" than rice flour based recipes. They work even better, if you can pre soak them in some liquids from the recipe. A little amaranth in a recipe is not only higher protein, but strangely mold retardant when the bread is stored in the refrigerator. Tapioca also adds some gummy qualities. You can take and soak ground flax seed meal in hot water to make flax gel as an egg substitute, or soak chia seed in room temperature cool water to make "chia gel," besides using the commercial egg substitutes such as from Ener- G, which is a combination of potato starch and a gluten free baking powder.

Once you have decided what sort of flours and egg substitute you'd like to use, you can then use a baking soda and pure apple cider vinegar leavening to make the recipe rise. Not too much vinegar, or it tends to de- gel that flax or chia mixture you are also using. A lot of baking soda makes it taste a bit salty, so you may have to adjust the salt content. You may also want to use a smaller loaf pan than is normal for these gluten free recipes, they bake up a LOT better this way.

A flour mixture that works well eggless is 1/3 buckwheat, 1/3 potato starch, and 1/3 garbanzo bean flour, or 1/4 each buckwheat, amaranth, potato starch, and garbanzo flour. If you don't like bean flours, you can substitute.

If you are using eggs and can use cheese or yogurt, the Chebe mixes (tapioca) are the easiest to make little rolls with. Small amounts of other flours and an extra egg or yogurt can be added to the Chebe mixtures.

The number one rule is to test before pulling from the oven, by sticking a clean knife into the middle and seeing if the knife comes out clean, if not, put it back in to bake some more. The second rule is, that there is no hard and fast rule about recipes, because every gluten free flour is different and will suck up different amounts of moisture. These doughs tend to be wetter, and they therefore bake differently. If you want to read some comedy routines, see the comments under any gluten free recipe for those people trying coconut flour for the first time. :lol: I remember once a blogger tried adapting another (famous) blogger's bread recipe, but did not successfully convert the amounts of fluid ingredients to the dry ones, and it seemed nobody caught this as they kept tinkering with it and tinkering with it and it never worked. It was too wet as it went into the oven. I had read Shauna Ahern's Gluten Free Girl and the Chef blog where she talks about proportions of starches to proteins and liquid and dry, and caught it. And this is a good place to go check out the archives.

The best way to play around with recipes and flour mixtures is to do small ones in the microwave at first, like a bun-in-a-cup. Microwave baking also is very fast. This way, you don't blow $5 worth of ingredients on making a bigger loaf of gluten free bread that it turns out you don't like anyway.

    • Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles
      I have been gluten free now since February and I recently purchased a box of Marshmallows Fruity Pebbles and looked at the ingredients (which none indicated gluten content), but am just wondering if anyone has had a problem with them. 
    • Test Results
      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it. 
    • Gardasil
      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
