    Ingredients:
    1 cup buckwheat flour mix (¼ cup buckwheat, ¼ cup mixed Montina flour, sorghum, and sweet rice flour)
    1 tablespoon ground flax seed
    1/8 teaspoon baking soda
    2/3 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon sugar
    1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
    1 egg
    7/8 cup plain kefir OR yogurt (I used to use Lifeway Prostokvasha or Bazarnyi)
    3 tablespoons melted butter

    Directions:
    Mix dry ingredients together. Beat egg until light. Whisk in kefir. Add dry ingredients and whisk together. Whisk in melted butter.

    When the waffle iron is hot, pour about ¼ cup of batter on each waffle square (you may need more, depending on the size of your iron). Cook until steam a stop coming out of the edges of the iron, and the iron opens easily (about 7 minutes).

    Makes enough waffles for 2 adults

    This recipe sounds great, but when kefir is heated, it kills the beneficial bacteria that kefir is known for. If the purpose of this recipe is to give people the beneficial bacteria of kefir to aid in digestion, it would be better to make the waffles with milk and serve the kefir in a glass with the waffle.

    In the book 'The Probiotics Revolution', the healthful benefits of inactive (dead) probiotics are discussed. This is one reason why baking with kefir is not a waste of time.

  • About Me

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    Here is a recipe that will leave you wanting more. The great thing about waffles is they can be frozen for a later date, so you can never make too many. This recipe is gluten-free, and also free of most common allergens including; dairy, eggs, nuts, and corn.
    Allergen Free Waffles (Gluten-Free)
    Serving Size: Approximately 5  Belgian waffles.

        1 ¾ cups warm distilled water     1 ¾ cups full fat coconut milk      ½ cup ground flaxseed     2 ¾ tablespoons blackstrap molasses     ½ cup tapioca flour     2 cups gluten-free rice flour     2 teaspoons baking powder     1 teaspoon baking soda     ¾  teaspoon salt To Make:   1. Start by grinding the flax seeds in your blender or food processor until it reaches a finely ground consistency.
       2. Mix the ground flax seed with the warm water in a medium glass bowl, set aside, let sit for 3 minutes. 
       3. Whisk together the rice flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large glass bowl. Blend the coconut milk and molasses into the water and flax seed mixture.
       4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together until the batter is slightly lumpy.
       5. Preheat the waffle iron until warm.
       6. Mix the batter again briefly, breaking up any remaining balls of rice flour.
       7. Completely grease both sides of the waffle iron.
       8. Pour the batter into the center of the iron, covering  the iron enough but not too much that the batter overflows.
       9. Bake each waffle  until it is brown and can be removed from the iron without breaking or falling apart.

    It’s easy to let classic breakfast favorites disappear from gluten-free diets. With so many baking options that don’t contain gluten now readily available at many grocery stores, it’s just as easy to bring them back. These waffles are warm and cozy on top of bursting with flavor. They’re perfect for breakfast or brunch but also hearty enough for one of those breakfast-for-dinner nights.
    Ingredients:
    3 cups buckwheat flour
    4 teaspoons baking powder
    4 eggs
    1 ½ cups milk
    1 can pumpkin puree
    ½ cup honey
    ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    2 teaspoon ground ginger
    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 stick melted butter
    Directions:
    Preheat the waffle iron.
    In a large bowl, combine sifted flour with baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt.
    In a separate bowl, beat eggs with brown sugar until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in pumpkin puree, milk, honey and butter. Reserve 1 tablespoon of butter. Fold wet ingredients into the dry until moist, but do not over stir.
    Brush iron with some of the reserved melted butter and cook waffles in batches according to the size of your iron.
    Serve with whatever toppings strike you.

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.
