Mock Matzo (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Betsey Carus. Makes approximately 14 - 2 ½ inch round crackers.

1/3 cup potato starch flour
1/3 cup (50g) ground almonds (see NOTE)
2 Tablespoons olive oil (use any oil available)
4 Tablespoons water (keep 2 in reserve)
pinch of salt (optional)

Preheat the oven to 450F.

Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and grease with oil. Or just use the aluminum foil. They come off the foil without cracking since the foil peels off easily. Mix together the potato starch flour, ground almonds and salt. Mix together the oil and 2 Tablespoons of water, slowly add the dry ingredients using a fork to mix the dough (add the reserved water if too dry, dough should hold together but not be sticky).

Knead the mixture and form a ball (if sticky, add a little potato starch flour). Take walnut size pieces of the dough and flatten onto the cookie sheet. Makes them about 2½ inches round. Prick with fork and bake for 10 minutes. (I now dont usually prick them). DO NOT OVERBAKE. They taste better when they appear slightly undercooked--the top should still be white with the edges just browning.

NOTE: Do not grind the almonds very fine, it is better if it has larger pieces. DO NOT use only the commercially ground almonds because they are too fine, you may want to mix the commercially ground almonds with some hand crushed pieces. I usually use a hammer to crush the whole almonds and this seems to be the right size. You dont need to remove the skin.

George, i am sorry that you are not feeling well! ?? I am not a doctor, but just trying out drugs to stop your symptoms just seems like a band aid approach. It sounds like he suspects IBS which is really, in my opinion, "I be stumped". Has inflammatory bowel disorder (IBD) (more lovely autoimmune disorders) been ruled out? This includes both Crohn's and Colitis. My niece was diagnosed with Crohn's finally with a pill camera after all other tests were given. The damage was not within reach of any scope. I am just throwing out suggestions. Hopefully, you and your doctor will figure it out soon!

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that happens to have a known trigger -- gluten. Flare-ups develop (antibodies) causing damage. Not just in the small intestine, but systemically. One gluten exposure can cause antibodies to increase for days or months! Antibodies are being measured during the celiac blood tests. If there is no gluten exposure, there will be no antibodies. These antibodies can come down in some people in as little as two weeks. Recommendations require gluten 2 to 4 weeks daily for the biopsies taken via endoscopy in order to be sure to catch damage, but 8 to 12 weeks for the blood tests. The endoscopy is considered the "gold standard" in helping to diagnose celiac disease, but there are other things that can damage the small intestine. So, the blood test helps solidify the diagnosis. So, if you want a good result on your endoscopy, you need to be eating gluten daily for two week prior at a minimum. I know it is tough and you are feeling sick. Wish there was a better way to catch active celiac disease.

Hi everyone, Just an update to my situation. I had thought that I might be getting better since I started adding gluten-free grain back into my diet but I was wrong. It seems that the Methscopalamine Bromide just delayed the effects, didn't stop them. I had to stop taking it because one of the side effects is to stop sweating, which I did. There were times when I felt hot and almost couldn't catch my breath. Anyway, my doc put me on Viberzi instead. I took 3 doses, 1 Tuesday evening and then 1 Wednesday morning and then again Wednesday evening. Each time I took 1, it seemed that about half an hour later I would develop severe abdominal cramping, pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back and a feeling like my insides were on fire. My face felt like it was hot and tingling. It wasn't warm to the touch but felt like it to me. Worse of all is it didn't work anyway, I still had diarrhea. I stopped taking Viberzi after reading the precautions pamphlet which said, "stop taking Viberzi and tell your doctor if you have abdominal cramping, pain which radiates to your shoulders or upper back." Go figure. Anyway, today is 3 weeks straight of diarrhea and still no diagnosis and not sure what he's going to want to do next. George

I'm still really new to all this but is it common to have trouble with sleep? I swear since my symptoms got really bad a few months ago I can't get 1 good nights sleep, like a 5 hour stretch is doing real good. Wake up at 3am wide awake almost every night. Told my doctor and they've recommended melatonin, that doesn't work. Tried chamomile and lavender tea, no help. Tried zzquil, that will knock me out but maybe for like an extra hour then I'm really drowsy the next morning from it. I don't know what to do.

I have 2 copies of DQ9. One from each parent.
