  1. Some were worse than others, but I would avoid: Amy's Ener-g Arrowhead Mills
  2. I use Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Baking Flour, too. It's perfect for me. I add two teaspoons of Xanthan Gum and some baking poweder to make all kinds of quickbreads. I also buy their gluten-free Pancake Mix. I've never had any reaction to it but I've heard some people might if they're also allergic to corn. Bob's has a pretty cool website with tons o recipes.
  3. WOw! that ius some recipe! thanks! Where do you buy your Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Flour? My Health Food store has some of their other products but not that one. Can I use their brown rice or sorghum flour instead, you think?
  4. More Oat Questions

    Christine, Watch out for oats. While the manufacturers may claim they're safe, the USDA allows as much as twenty percent! wheat in oats. I've tride them all and most of them have given me at least D and pains. Just a tip. jeri
  5. Oh man, I went through the same problem as you. I had been eating toast every morning since I was a little kid. After I finally found out that I was celiac and not just crazy, I was so frustrated in the morning without the joy of toasted bread and butter. I've tried some of the ready made breads--Whole Foods Gluten Free Bakehouse makes some wonderful products, but their super pricey and the nearest whole foods is twenty miles from me. I've tried many and the best by far is Bob's Red Mill Homemade Wonderful Gluten Free Bread. You can buy it online but I buy it at my local health food store. It makes awesome toast. Unfortunately, it's a mix that I have to make myself. I wish someone would sell it ready made. Man, please stay away from spelt, rye, barley, kamut and things that are sold as "wheat-free." Wheat-free does not mean gluten free. Best of luck to you living as a silly-yak.
  6. gluten-free/df Breakfast Ideas?

    Ick! read the label of that "bread." It may be gluten free but what is in there instead. They use sonething called "Sodium Carboxy Metylcellulose." <--- made from wood fiber? wth is that?
  7. you gotta cut it out completely!
  8. I don't know. I tried their bread baking mix and it just didn't work. Brownie Mixes are pretty simple though, a bunch of cocoa and sugar, xanthan gum, leavening and some alternative flour, so i dont think brownies should be the meter for quality. Bobs red mill bronwies are really amazing, too. I think pamela's has one too. anyway.
  9. My Cookies Crumbled

    Hi Cindy, Add a teaspon more baking powder and another 1/4 tsp. of Xanthan Gum. Betty Hagman is great.Try also Carol Fenster's "Gluten Free 101" silly yak
  10. Xanthan Gum

    Those people who claim to have had reactions to bobs red mill products must have experienced a very rare fluke. I've been eating their gluten-free products regularly for like 5 years and I've never had a reaction at all. Their pancake mix is awesome and their bread mix is really fun to make. Last year I met Bob himself and he personally gave me a tour of his gluten free facility and i was really impressed. It's totally separate from their other products and they have a lab there where they test each batch for gluten. I don't know of any other company that does that. (I spied in the window while they were doing their tests. hehe) anyway, my two cents.
