    I am a BIG fan of cornbread and thought this recipe was very good. Even my husband, who doesn't like conventional flour-containing corn bread, thought they were excellent. The muffins come out very moist.

    Lovely muffins. For my taste, 1/2 the salt was perfect. Thank you!

    Great corn muffins! We don't like sweet corn muffins so we leave out the sugar and add a diced jalapeno for a little kick and they are perfect!

    The flavor and texture of these was fine, interesting and lighter than my gluten-containing recipe, with one important caveat: there is WAY too much baking powder. I am wondering if there's a typo and the intention is 2 tsp. powder. I tried it as written--since what do I know?--and found the powder flavor overwhelming. I have made a batch with 1 Tbsp. and found it much better, although the powder is still detectable. I may try going down tsp. by tsp. until I find something that works.

    Mmm so good!! If you use less water they become a lot like biscuits, and they also taste good with shredded cheese in the batter. I would definitely remake these!

    I read the notes and reduced the baking powder by half. These were very tasty. Thank you!

    Followed exactly except I added 1/2 cup frozen corn. These were amazingly good - my skeptic husband ate 5 big muffins in one sitting.

    Went looking for a corn muffin recipe and this one has to be the easiest and best tasting thing I've made gluten free so far. My husband raved about them!

    This was my first attempt at baking gluten-free after a recent diagnosis. What a wonderful site! Thank-you!

    My honest opinion on the recipe: It wasn't as light as regular muffins, but it tasted OK except for a lingering taste of baking powder. Does it really need 2 Tablespoons?

    I made these this morning for a group of people with assorted dietary restrictions. They loved them. However, since one person can't eat eggs I used 1 teaspoon flax meal with 3 teaspoons water instead of the egg. One person can't eat refined sugar so I used 1/4 cup maple syrup and I only used 1 teaspoon baking powder. For milk, I used homemade almond milk. Plenty of changes, but a tasty good recipe to start with, so thank you, Scott.

    I was so hoping to find a good recipe for gluten-free cornbread that's actually moist...not dry and crumbly! Thanks so much for letting me (and others) know that this is the case!

    This recipe comes to us from A.J. McEvoy
    1 ¼ Cups A.J.s Special Gluten-Free Baking mix (or your own favorite mix)
    ½ Cup Canned Pumpkin Puree
    1 Large Egg
    ¼ Cup milk
    2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice, more if you prefer (BE CAREFUL that it is made only of spices, as some
    anti-caking agents might contain grain products)
    ¼ Sugar
    2 teaspoon Blackstrap or other dark molasses (be sure ingredients do not list caramel color, a possible danger)
    2 teaspoon Honey
    1 small handful of your favorite raisins
    Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix baking mix and spice together in a medium-size bowl; set aside. In another medium-size bowl, beat the egg; then add the milk; then add the sugar, molasses, and honey; then blend in the pumpkin. Slowly add in the baking mix/spice blend. This mix WILL be very stiff. It takes a strong hand to stir it. When evenly-blended, add raisins. Spoon into muffin pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on your oven. Makes 6 muffins.

    2 teaspoon xanthan gum
    2 ½ teaspoon Baking powder
    1/3 + 1 T. sugar

    ¼ cup applesauce
    2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    ¼ cup canola oil
    ¾ cup nonfat milk
    ½ teaspoon Vanilla
    1 ½ cups fresh or frozen
    Line muffin tins with paper. Stir together dry ingredients. Make a well in center of mixture and add applesauce, eggs, oil, milk and vanilla. Stir together just until ingredients are moistened.

    This recipe comes to us from Elizabeth Griffith.
    Makes 11 muffins
    Soak 1 cup of coarse cornmeal (polenta) in 1 cup cranberry cocktail and a good splash of gluten-free vanilla and 6 tablespoons water
    sift together
    ½ cup of the gluten-free mix above
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    2 tablespoons of Just Whites (dried egg white about 3 whites worth)
    Combine wet and dry, spoon into heated muffin tins. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes in greased muffin tins.
    I estimated these at about one hundred calories and two and a half grams of protein per muffin.

    Scott Adams
    1-2/3 cups gluten free flour blend
    1-1/3 cups granulated sugar
    1 tablespoon gluten-free pumpkin pie spice
    ¾ teaspoon baking soda
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon xanthan gum
    1-1/3 eggs, slightly beaten (beat 2 eggs in a measuring cup; throw away 1/3 of it)
    2/3 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    1/3 cup milk
    1 large apple, peeled, cored, and chopped ¼ (about 1-1/3 cup)
    Preheat to 350F. Insert liners in 12 muffin cups. Combine flour, sugar, and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Fluff with a fork until well blended. In a smaller bowl, combine egg, pumpkin, oil, and milk. Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture and mix with a fork just until uniformly moistened. Fold in apple and divide into muffin cups. Add streusel topping, below.
    Streusel Topping
    1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon gluten free flour blend
    2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoon granulated sugar
    ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    2 ¾ teaspoon cold butter, cut into pieces
    Combine in small bowl or the bowl of a mini food processor. Cut in the butter using two knives in a crossing motion or pulse in mini processor until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping evenly over muffin batter.
    Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes (test with a toothpick every 2 minutes starting at 23). Cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then turn out.

    Celiac.com 07/16/2018 - Did weak public oversight leave Arizonans ripe for Theranos’ faulty blood tests scam? Scandal-plagued blood-testing company Theranos deceived Arizona officials and patients by selling unproven, unreliable products that produced faulty medical results, according to a new book by Wall Street Journal reporter, whose in-depth, comprehensive investigation of the company uncovered deceit, abuse, and potential fraud.
    Moreover, Arizona government officials facilitated the deception by providing weak regulatory oversight that essentially left patients as guinea pigs, said the book’s author, investigative reporter John Carreyrou. 
    In the newly released "Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup," Carreyrou documents how Theranos and its upstart founder, Elizabeth Holmes, used overblown marketing claims and questionable sales tactics to push faulty products that resulted in consistently faulty blood tests results. Flawed results included tests for celiac disease and numerous other serious, and potentially life-threatening, conditions.
    According to Carreyrou, Theranos’ lies and deceit made Arizonans into guinea pigs in what amounted to a "big, unauthorized medical experiment.” Even though founder Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos duped numerous people, including seemingly savvy investors, Carreyrou points out that there were public facts available to elected officials back then, like a complete lack of clinical data on the company's testing and no approvals from the Food and Drug Administration for any of its tests.
    SEC recently charged the now disgraced Holmes with what it called a 'years-long fraud.’ The company’s value has plummeted, and it is now nearly worthless, and facing dozens, and possibly hundreds of lawsuits from angry investors. Meantime, Theranos will pay Arizona consumers $4.65 million under a consumer-fraud settlement Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich negotiated with the embattled blood-testing company.
    Both investors and Arizona officials, “could have picked up on those things or asked more questions or kicked the tires more," Carreyrou said. Unlike other states, such as New York, Arizona lacks robust laboratory oversight that would likely have prevented Theranos from operating in those places, he added.
    Stay tuned for more new on how the Theranos fraud story plays out.

    Celiac.com 07/13/2018 - I went to a friend’s home for dinner.  A few days before, she called and asked me what I could eat.  I asked her what she was planning to make, and she said she was grilling meats with side dishes.  I said, “Great.  Please just grill a piece of chicken for me with salt and pepper, and I’ll be happy to bring a side.” She said, “No need to bring a side.  I’ve got this.” When I arrived, she greeted me and said, “I spent all day cooking tonight’s dinner so you can eat it. Hey would you just check this salad dressing to see if it is OK for you?” I looked at the ingredients and it contained gluten and dairy, both of which I cannot eat.  Then I glanced around the kitchen and saw evidence of wheat cross-contamination, including buns being toasted on the grill, and gluten-containing barbeque sauce spilling on the grill where my “clean” chicken was cooking. She had other guests to tend to, and I couldn’t offer instruction or read the ingredients of everything she used in the meal. 
    At social gatherings, I’ve been challenged too by those who ask if I am really “allergic,” or just eating gluten free as a “fad.” I’ve been told many times by hosts and hostesses that, “a little won’t hurt you,” or “everything in moderation,” or “if it is made with loving hands, it is good for you to eat.”  Of course, all of this is bunk for those with food allergies or celiac disease.  A little bit may kill us, and whether made with loving hands or not, it will certainly make us sick. 
    Those of us with food allergies and/or celiac disease walk a tightrope with friends and relatives. The old rules of etiquette just don’t work anymore.  We don’t want to insult anybody, we don’t want to be isolated, and we also don’t want to risk our health by eating foods that may contain ingredients we cannot tolerate.  So what do we do? 
    Etiquette books advise us to eat what is put in front of us when we are guests in someone’s home. They caution us at all costs not to insult our hostess. Rather, we are instructed to compliment the hostess on her good cooking, flavor combinations, and food choices.  But when foods are prepared in a cross-contaminated environment with ingredients we are allergic to, we cannot follow the old social constructs that do not serve us.  We need to work together to rewrite the rules, so that we can be included in social gatherings without fear of cross-contamination, and without offending anyone.
    Let’s figure out how to surmount these social situations together.  
    Each edition of this column will present a scenario, and together, we’ll determine appropriate, polite, and most importantly, safe ways to navigate this tricky gluten-free/food allergies lifestyle in a graceful way.  If someone disagrees with our new behavior patterns, we can refer them to this column and say, “Here are the new rules for those of us with food allergies or celiac disease.”  When we are guests in someone’s home, we can give them links to this column so they understand the plight we are faced with, bite after bite. Perhaps this will help those of us living with us to understand, be more compassionate, and accepting of our adaptations to keep ourselves safe. 
    This column will present a scenario such as the one above, and ask that you comment on how you would navigate it. Let’s talk about it. Let’s share ideas.  Using the example above, here’s the scenario for this issue:
    What would you do?
    Your kind-hearted friend invites you to dinner and insists on cooking for you.  You arrive and the first thing she says is, “I’ve spent all day making this for you. Oh, I bought this salad dressing for you, but you might want to read the ingredients first.”  You do, and it contains malt vinegar.  You look around the kitchen and notice evidence of cross-contamination in the rest of the meal.  What do you do? 
    Please comment below and feel free to share the tricky scenarios that you’ve encountered too.  Let’s discuss how to surmount these social situations.  What would you do?

    Celiac.com 07/12/2018 - Previous research has shown that the oral administration of Bifidobacterium infantis Natren Life Start super strain (NLS-SS) reduces of gastro-intestinal symptoms in untreated celiac disease patients. The reduction of symptoms was not connected with changes in intestinal permeability or serum levels of cytokines, chemokines, or growth factors. Therefore, researchers suspected that the reduction of symptoms might be related to the modulation of innate immunity.
    To test that hypothesis, a team of researchers set out to assess the potential mechanisms of a probiotic B.infantis Natren Life Start super strain on the mucosal expression of innate immune markers in adult patients with active untreated celiac disease compared with those treated with B. infantis 6 weeks and after 1 year of gluten-free diet.
    The research team included Maria I. Pinto-Sanchez, MD, Edgardo C. Smecuol, MD, Maria P. Temprano,RD, Emilia Sugai, BSBC, Andrea Gonzalez, RD, PhD, Maria L. Moreno,MD, Xianxi Huang, MD, PhD, Premysl Bercik, MD, Ana Cabanne, MD, Horacio Vazquez, MD, Sonia Niveloni, MD, Roberto Mazure, MD, Eduardo Mauriño, MD, Elena F. Verdú, MD, PhD, and Julio C. Bai, MD. They are affiliated with the Medicine Department, Farcombe Family Digestive Health Research Institute, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada; the Small Intestinal Section, Department of Medicine and the Department of Alimentation at Dr. C. Bonorino Udaondo, Gastroenterology Hospital and Research Institute at the Universidad del Salvador in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
    The team determined the numbers of macrophages and Paneth cells, along with the expression of a-defensin-5 expression via immunohistochemistry in duodenal biopsies.
    Their results showed that a gluten-free diet lowers duodenal macrophage counts in celiac disease patients more effectively than B. infantis, while B. infantis lowers Paneth cell counts and reduces expression of a-defensin-5.
    This study documents the differential innate immune effects of treatment with B. infantis compared with 1 year of gluten-free diet. The team calls for further study to better understand the synergistic effects of gluten-free diet and B. infantis supplementation in celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 07/11/2018 - For people with celiac disease, finding decent gluten-free bread is like searching gold. Many have given up on bread entirely and others begrudgingly relate themselves to the ignominious frozen aisle at their supermarket and content themselves with one of the many dry, shriveled, flavorless loaves that proudly tout the gluten-free label. 
    For these people, the idea of freshly baked bread is a distant, if comforting, memory. The idea of going to Paris and marching into a boulangerie and walking out with a warm, tasty, gluten-free baguette that was freshly baked on the premises that morning, is like a dream. Now, in some Parisian bakeries, that dream is becoming a reality. And the tear of joy from the thankful gluten-free masses are sure to follow.
    These days, a single sign on the awning speaks to hungry customers who peruse the tarts and chou buns, and the loaves that fill the cooling on racks behind a glass pane at Chambelland boulangerie and café in Paris’ 11th arrondissement. The sign lettered in French translates: “artisan baker; flour producer; naturally gluten free.” That’s right. Naturally gluten-free. At a bakery. In Paris. 
    Only the flat, focaccia-style loaves, and the absence of baguettes, tells customers that this bakery is something different. Chambelland opened its doors in 2014 and continues to do a brisk business in delicious, freshly baked gluten-free breads and other goods.
    The boulangerie is the work of Narhaniel Doboin and his business partner, Thomas Teffri-Chambelland. They use flour made of grains including rice, buckwheat and sorghum to make delicious gluten-free baked goods. Doboin says that customers queued in the rain on the first day, hardly believing their eyes, some began to cry. 
    For gluten-free Parisians, there was a time before Chambelland, and the time after. If you find yourself in Paris, be sure to search them out for what is sure to be a gluten-free delight.
    Or maybe book your ticket now.
