Alternatives For Butter?!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I have a question, but I have a feeling I already know the answer. Okay, so I am intolerant to casein as well as gluten, but I LOVE PANCAKES! Well, I got gluten-free pancake mix and dummy me :blink: forgot that pancakes include dairy!

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has any alternatives (that taste good) for making pancakes without any casein.

And HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! :D

I sometimes use applesauce instead of oil in recipes. Possibly you could try that with your mix. Good luck!!

Just did a search and here is what culinary.net says for butter substitutions:

Butter, lard, and other saturated fat (coconut oil, palm oil) substitutes:

Soft tub margarine (first ingredient on food label listed as liquid vegetable oil)*

Corn, cottonseed, olive, rapeseed (canola), safflower, sesame, soybean or sunflower oil

*(When cooking, it is better not to substitute reduced-fat margarine or corn oil spreads for regular butter and margarine unless a recipe has been specifically developed for their use. Their increased water content can make a substantial difference in the food's taste, appearance and texture).

Hmmm......apple pancakes..... :unsure: ...........I could give it a try........I love pancakes, and I love applesauce..... :D ........I'll try it!

You know "I can't believe it's not butter" spray....? Well, that would be perfect if they just didn't have the casein it in? What does the casein do anyway? Can't they do without it for people like me (us)! :P

if it's calling for butter in the recipe, you can usually sub oil (I've always seen oil, though, not butter, in the recipe). if it's calling for milk, you can sub a milk substitute (or even juice or water). obviously, the mix that has casein in it will be right out, but pancakes are pretty easy to make gluten-free, once you figure out what flours you like. ;-) google will find you a lot of recipes you can peruse to figure out which ones to try.

Yeah, you know I didn't think about using oil instead of butter and I also just bought rice milk, which I'm loving, and that will sub. for the milk!

There are actually a lot of different choices for pancake dairy replacement.

Earth Balance makes a dairy-free spread which tastes much like butter. Also, coconut oil works to cook up most anything without tasting of coconuts. The house will smell of coconut, but the food tastes as it should (plus, coconut oil does not change into a saturated fat at high temps like olive oil can). For dairy, I substitute rice milk, any pureed fruit, hazelnut or almond milk. My daughter is allergic to soy also (except does okay with Earth Balance). I have heard that Buttery Sticks are okay for those with casein issues.

I've liked corn pancakes, and also blueberry. I never did like putting butter or margarine on them though. Just a bit of syrup, jam, or applesauce was what I had done before I knew about the gluten issue. I haven't tried to make any since. I really don't miss them.

I prefered crape susette over pancakes actually, and given those are so flat, it might be easier to make gluten-free. I haven't looked for a recipe, but I'm sure they're out there.
