Lemon Ricotta Scones
(gluten free, sugar free, grain free, dairy free, Keto)
2 1/2 cups (280g) Almond flour
1/3 cup Swerve Granular Sweetener
1 tbsp baking Powder
1/2 tsp salt
Zest of one lemon
2 large eggs
1/2 cup Kite Hill Ricotta
1/2 Tsp lemon extract
 
Lemon Glaze 1/4 cup Swerve Confectioners
1 tbsp Lemon Extract
 
Amusingly leaving out binders on this makes them a bit crumbly and is the perfect texture for scones and a great gluten free treat.
 
1. Preheat oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
2. In a large bowl whisk together almond meal, sweetener, baking powder, salt, use a sift to sift out into the bowl again and whisk in zest
3. In a separate bowl mix the eggs, ricotta, and lemon extract.
4. Combine the ricotta mix into the flour mix and stir until dough is well combined.
5. Divide the dough in half. and pat into two 6" diameter circles on the parchment paper lined sheet.
6. Cut each into 6 wedges with a dough knife or butter knife using a spatula you can spread them out on the pan a few inches apart
7. Bake around 25mins until golden brown and firm
8. Let cool and whisk the powdered sweetener and lemon juice and drizzle over the cooled scones.

Hey.  Would these be a good non- sweet biscuit?  My son and his Celiac friend are always looking for a nice biscuit to put gravy on or dump chili on.  They use the gluten-free

Bisquick now but it's only "OK".

Not really they have no binders in them, they crumb really easy, this would not work for a biscuit. As a scone this works great, not so much in something that is supposed to be more tough. I made some tough textured dinner rolls grain free that reminds me of those cheap ones in the square packages, deduce that binder in half for a softer biscuit like texture and do more more by whisking the eggs before use. Other options would be my cheddar biscuit recipe might really be a hit with them.

As an alternative to the gluten-free Bisquick, I've seen other people say that Pamela's gluten-free baking mix ( http://www.pamelasproducts.com/products/baking-mixes/pamelas-baking-pancake-mix/ ) is much better.  I found it at our local Fred Meyer's, so it seems likely it's a common item at any of the Kroger store chains.  Haven't tried it yet, so I can't offer personal opinion, only hearsay ;-) 

(And those lemon scones look terrific!)

Umm no offense but this is counter productive to my post/blog ...the whole point of these is grain free, corn free, low carb, and dairy free....while I have suggested pamela products on my alternative list on another post, this blog is focused on no gluten, corn, dairy and lowering carbs, grains, and starches. Pamela product you suggested is something I would not feed my family, friends, and even refuse to allow in my kitchen or use as a chef. It is a heavy grain, carb bases, and use dairy products (lets not go off on this tangent). They do make a paleo blend, a grain free, blend and a dairy free blend I might suggest though for pancakes.

While I do appreciate the comment on the scone looks.....this for ME is like someone going to our celiac forum and telling use to Aunt Jemima pancake mix cause the gluten flour makes it taste great....I have reactions to lactose intolerance, whey allergies, and can not eat carbs to put this in perspective.

If you want a good baking flour and since your local store stocks the Pamela brand the following might be appropriate to use and match the low carb, grain free diet this blog is about. I personally do my own blends of almond, and coconut flours to keep pricing down (walnut, pecan, etc are expensive)  http://www.pamelasproducts.com/products/baking-mixes/nut-flour-blend/

    Celiac.com 05/18/2018 - Across the country, colleges and universities are rethinking the way they provide food services for students with food allergies and food intolerance. In some cases, that means major renovations. In other cases, it means creating completely new dining and food halls. To document both their commitment and execution of gluten-free and allergen-free dining, these new food halls are frequently turning to auditing and accreditation firms, such as Kitchens with Confidence.
    The latest major player to make the leap to allergen-free dining is Syracuse University. The university’s Food Services recently earned an official gluten-free certification from Kitchens with Confidence for four of the University’s dining centers, with the fifth soon to follow.
    To earn the gluten-free certification from Kitchens with Confidence, food services must pass a 41 point audit process that includes 200 control check points. The food service must also agree to get any new food item approved in advance, and to submit to monthly testing of prep surfaces, to furnish quarterly reports, and to provide information on any staffing changes, recalls or incident reports. Kitchens with Confidence representatives also conduct annual inspections of each dining center.
    Syracuse students and guests eating at Ernie Davis, Shaw, Graham and Sadler dining centers can now choose safe, reliable gluten-free food from a certified gluten-free food center. The fifth dining center, Brockway, is currently undergoing renovations scheduled for completion by fall, when Brockway will also receive its certification.
    Syracuse Food Services has offered a gluten-free foods in its dining centers for years. According to Jamie Cyr, director of Auxiliary Services, the university believes that the independent Gluten-Free Certification from Kitchens with Confidence will help ease the anxiety for parents and students.”
    Syracuse is understandably proud of their accomplishment. According to Mark Tewksbury, director of residence dining operations, “campus dining centers serve 11,000 meals per day and our food is made fresh daily. Making sure that it is nutritious, delicious and safe for all students is a top priority.”
    Look for more colleges and universities to follow in the footsteps of Syracuse and others that have made safe, reliable food available for their students with food allergies or sensitivities.

    Celiac.com 05/17/2018 - Celiac disease is not one of the most deadly diseases out there, but it can put you through a lot of misery. Also known as coeliac, celiac disease is an inherited immune disorder. What happens is that your body’s immune system overreacts to gluten and damages the small intestine. People who suffer from the disease cannot digest gluten, a protein found in grain such as rye, barley, and wheat. 
    While it may not sound like a severe complication at first, coeliac can be unpleasant to deal with. What’s worse is it would lower your body’s capacity to absorb minerals and vitamins. Naturally, the condition would cause nutritional deficiencies. The key problem that diagnosing celiac is difficult and takes take longer than usual. Surprisingly, the condition has over 200 identified symptoms.
    More than three million people suffer from the coeliac disease in the United States alone. Even though diagnosis is complicated, there are symptoms that can help you identify the condition during the early stages to minimize the damage. 
    Here is how you can recognize the main symptoms of celiac disease:
    Diarrhea
    In various studies conducted over years, the most prominent symptom of celiac disease is chronic diarrhea.
    People suffering from the condition would experience loose watery stools that can last for up to four weeks after they stop taking gluten. Diarrhea can also be a symptom of food poisoning and other conditions, which is why it makes it difficult to diagnose coeliac. In certain cases, celiac disease can take up to four years to establish a sound diagnosis.
    Vomiting
    Another prominent symptom is vomiting.  
    When accompanied by diarrhea, vomiting can be a painful experience that would leave you exhausted. It also results in malnutrition and the patient experiences weight loss (not in a good way though). If you experience uncontrolled vomiting, report the matter to a physician to manage the condition.
    Bloating
    Since coeliac disease damages the small intestine, bloating is another common system. This is due to inflammation of the digestive tract. In a study with more than a 1,000 participants, almost 73% of the people reported bloating after ingesting gluten. 
    Bloating can be managed by eliminating gluten from the diet which is why a gluten-free diet is necessary for people suffering from celiac disease.
    Fatigue
    Constant feeling of tiredness and low energy levels is another common symptom associated with celiac disease. If you experience a lack of energy after in taking gluten, then you need to consult a physician to diagnose the condition. Now fatigue can also result from inefficient thyroid function, infections, and depression (a symptom of the coeliac disease). However, almost 51% of celiac patients suffer from fatigue in a study.
    Itchy Rash
    Now the chances of getting a rash after eating gluten are slim, but the symptom has been associated with celiac disease in the past. The condition can cause dermatitis herpetiformis, which causes a blistering skin rash that occurs around the buttocks, knees, and elbows. 
    A study found out that almost 17% of patients suffering from celiac disease might develop dermatitis herpetiformis due to lack of right treatment. Make sure you schedule an online appointment with your dermatologist or visit the nearest healthcare facility to prevent worsening of symptoms.
    Even with such common symptoms, diagnosing the condition is imperative for a quick recovery and to mitigate the long-term risks associated with celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 05/16/2018 - Galectins are a family of animal lectins marked by their affinity for N-acetyllactosamine-enriched glycoconjugates. Galectins control several immune cell processes and influence both innate and adaptive immune responses. A team of researchers recently set out to assess the role of galectins, particularly galectin-1 (Gal-1), in the treatment of celiac disease.
    The research team included Victoria Sundblad, Amado A. Quintar, Luciano G. Morosi, Sonia I. Niveloni, Ana Cabanne, Edgardo Smecuol, Eduardo Mauriño, Karina V. Mariño, Julio C. Bai, Cristina A. Maldonado, and Gabriel A. Rabinovich.
    The researchers examined the role of galectins in intestinal inflammation, particularly in Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and celiac disease patients, as well as in murine models resembling these inflammatory conditions. 
    Maintaining the fine balance between host immunity and tolerance promotes gut homeostasis, and helps to prevent inflammation. To gain insight into the role of Gal-1 in celiac patients, the team demonstrated an increase in Gal-1 expression following a gluten-free diet along with an increase in the frequency of Foxp3+ cells. 
    The resolution of the inflammatory response may promote the recovery process, leading to a reversal of gut damage and a regeneration of villi. Among other things, the team’s findings support the use of Gal-1 agonists to treat severe mucosal inflammation. In addition, Gal-1 may serve as a potential biomarker to follow the progression of celiac disease treatment.
    Gut inflammation may be governed by a coordinated network of galectins and their glycosylated ligands, triggering either anti-inflammatory or pro-inflammatory responses. That network may influence the interplay between intestinal epithelial cells and the highly specialized gut immune system in physiologic and pathologic settings.
    The team’s results demonstrate that the anti-inflammatory and tolerogenic response associated with gluten-free diet in celiac patients is matched by a substantial up-regulation of Gal-1. This suggests a major role of this lectin in favoring resolution of inflammation and restoration of mucosal homeostasis. 
    This data highlights the regulated expression of galectin-1 (Gal-1), a proto-type member of the galectin family, during intestinal inflammation in untreated and treated celiac patients. Further study of this area could lead to better understanding of the mechanisms behind celiac disease, and potentially to a treatment of the disease.

    Celiac.com 05/15/2018 - There is a good amount of anecdotal evidence that people with non-celiac gluten sensitivity can tolerate sourdough bread, but there is no good science to support such claims. To determine if sourdough bread help conquer wheat sensitivity, the Alberta Wheat Commission (AWC) is funding a team of researchers to see if the sourdough fermentation process can reduce or eliminate wheat components that trigger wheat sensitivity.
    The project will study the way the sourdough bread fermentation process breaks down proteins and carbohydrates in wheat flour.
    Chair of the AWC Research Committee, Terry Young, said new research suggests that wheat protein may not be the cause of gluten sensitivity in people without celiac disease. Longer fermentation, aka sourdough fermentation, is more common in Europe. Young says that reports indicate that “incidents of non-celiac sensitivity…are actually lower in Europe." He adds the current research will focus on the fermentation, but the future may include the development of wheat varieties for gluten sensitive individuals.
    The research will be led by food microbiologist at the University of Alberta, Dr. Michael Gänzle, who said the use of sourdough bread in industrial baking reduces ingredient costs and can improve the quality of bread as well.
    Dr. Gänzle wants to assess anecdotal claims that people with non-celiac wheat or gluten intolerance can tolerate sourdough bread. His team wants to “determine whether fermentation reduces or eliminates individual wheat components that are known or suspected to cause adverse effects.”
    The team readily admits that their project will not create products that are safe for people with celiac disease. They may, however, create products that are useful for people without celiac disease, but who are gluten sensitivity.
    The AWC is collaboratively funding the project with the Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission, and the Minnesota Wheat Research Promotion Council, which will contribute $57,250, and $20,000, respectively. The research team will issue a report of its findings after the project is completed in 2021.
    Studies like this are important to shed light on the differences between celiac and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Stay tuned for more developments in this exciting area of research.

    • Welcome!   Please consider getting him tested for celiac disease before you put him on gluten diet.  All celiac testing requires a person to be on a full gluten diet.  A formal diagnosis can help a person adhere to the diet and get the school and medical support needed.  
    • Hello all. I've been living with celiac for about 4 years now. I'm a type 1 diabetic and as mentioned have celiac. I have not followed the diet, never really feeling the effects until the past year. I'e always been in decent shape, but realized I was losing weight in such a way that I look malnutritioned. After trying my best to push weights, and do pushups, I realized I am the weakest I've ever been. I'm 22 and feel like I have the strength of a 14 year old.  Is this the end? I want to dedicate my self to the diet, but feel like at this point there is no use.
    •  I’ve been gluten free now for eight years. I have had two separate biopsies confirming celiac disease. I’ve had scopes since diagnosis that showed regrowth of microvilli. The diet has worked and I gained back all the weight that I lost before diagnosis.  Lately, I’ve had some alarming symptoms. I’m having trouble making certain expressions with my face, I have a very hard time finding words or pronouncing words. I’ve had loss of feeling in my hands And numbness in tingling. I also get strangled very easily when I’m drinking or eating. I’m experiencing a trimmer in my right hand particularly although I’ve never had a very steady hand. The doctor checked all my vitamins etc. and put me on vitamin D months ago, but other than that everything has been fine as far as blood work. I have not changed anything. Just wondering if any of you have experience this and if you found out what caused it.

    • I HIGHLY recommend Culver's. They have an Udi's gluten free bun that is packaged and steamed, brought to you so you assemble it yourself. They also ask if you're allergic and if you say you are they'll yell it to the kitchen to make sure everything is separate and clean gloves are used (it is printed in bold red letters on the order and your receipt to insure they follow protocol.) Fries are in shared baskets, but the coleslaw and salad are gluten free and amazing. PLUS they have several frozen Custard flavors gluten free, both fresh and in pints.
    • thank God that Van's did the proactive thing with the recall - a LOT of parents (and kids) breathe a sigh of relief
    •  Yes, I had to do more than gluten free for other food sensitivities and get foods from companies free of gluten and soy.  A wild diet (see Teri Cochrane's work) has finally seemed to solve all of my issues.  I wish you well on your journey. Dee
    • UPDATE, I called them, and gave the item in question asking about the missing "Good for Parts" statement "Oh those have the red sticker which means they do not work, we do not have to put the good for parts on everything. If you want you can bring them back by and we can relist them as a consignment without mentioning the for parts and we keep 25% and you might make more then you paid for them" I had to hang up, the audacity to suggest I screw someone one else over....Sorry I am christian raised and this kind of scam...I would rather keep them then have another fellow human being be scammed by these people. I just now need to get the money and see if these machines can be repaired. Currently asking around...I learned some more info about these freezers.....new they are $2,663 each....I got 2 broken ones for $150 each. One has a burned out compressor ($275 fix) I see where it actually burned out and melted the wires. The other, everything runs...just not cold, odd the compressor kicks on but the low pressure lines does not get cold, assuming Freon leak somewhere and needs to be recharged with a stop leak additive, this might be a simple fix.
