New Celiac

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone...I was recently (in the past month) diagnosed with Celiac's disease and I have now been gluten free...i think....for about a week and a half or so. I've tried some of the breads I can find in the health food stores and I've even tried to make my own. I've also tried some of the cookies out there. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for bread that tastes like normal bread, that isn't so dry and any suggestions for normal tasting chocolate chip cookies....all the ones i've tried taste like cardboard diet cookies...yuck! Thanks so much and any other suggestions on good tasting items would be great! Thanks!!

Kinnikinick makes some great cookies and sandwich breads. Even donuts and muffins and pizza crusts.

Pamela's Amazing Wheat Free Bread Mix is my absolute favorite bread. I slice it and store it in the fridge in a ziplock bag and when I want a sandwich I microwave it for about 45 seconds or so until warm... I also love it with melted butter and honey on it for breakfast.

My daughter prefers Kinnikinicks Italian White Tapioca Rice Bread, it comes frozen and I keep it in the fridge and again microwave it for 30 seconds or so until warm and make sandwiches with it. She loves this bread.

I just discovered EnerG's hot dog buns and these are really good sliced and toasted. (not exactly like a regular gluten containing hot dog bun, but they are good)

Hi -

Do you have a bread machine? I couldn't find any premade bread that my daughter liked so I invested in a bread machine and now we make our own and it's so much better. The Pamela's amazing wheat free bread mix is our current favorite. She especially likes to make cinnamon raisin bread out of it. As for cookies, I most often just use a "normal" recipe and replace the wheat flour with Gluten Free Pantry's all purpose flour mix. I replace it cup for cup and it's works great. In Danna Korn's Living Gluten Free for Dummies book, she lists the following recipe and it's wonderful.

PB Cookies

2 eggs

1 c. peanut butter

1 c. sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Beat eggs. Stir peanut butter and sugar into eggs. Drop dollops of dough onto cookie sheet. Press flat. Bake 10 to 12 minutes.

I make these a lot and they are really, really good.

Our favorite chocolate cake mix is from Namaste and our favorite pizza crust is from Kinnickinnick (in the frozen section). I hope that gives you some ideas!

Try the Chebe bread mixes. You could try the Kinnicknik breads, but toast or grill it!

If you can find Pamela's baking and pancake mix follow the recipe for chocolate chip cookies or a lot of people like using gluten-free flour replacement and using the original tollhouse recipe.

The gluten free pantry has a lot of nice mixes.

Glutino has a lot of good tasting pre-made foods. (bagels)

My favorite rice noodles are Tinkyada. If you use the penne shape with spaghetti sauce and shredded mozzarella it is like a baked ziti.

My favourite is Kinnickinnick. Their Tapioca English Muffins are amazing! What you need to do is microwave them for 50 seconds, take it out, turn it over, let it sit for about 2 minutes, then slice it, then toast it. Comes out wonderfully moist.

Have you downloaded the delphi list yet? It is a list that is an absolute essential. You would be amazed at how many mainstream items from the supermarket we can have.

If you go to www.delphiforums.com, (you need to register, but it is free), click on the left where it says "Health and Wellness". Around the second or third forum that comes up is the "Celiac Disease Support Group" forum, click on that. Scroll down to where it says "Gluten Free Products Lists" and click on there. The list will come up and it is categorized to make it alot easier. There is also a section you can click on to download the whole list. It is wonderful to have when you are in the supermarket.

Hope this helps, and any questions you have, don't hesitate to ask! Our motto is no question is too stupid to ask!

Welcome!

Try the yeast bread and soft batch cookies recipes from www.eatingglutenfree.com. I was just telling another poster that I donated some of those cookies to a funeral luncheon last week and had people asking for the recipe afterwards. They really are very good.
