Hi, i'm new to this celiac board and have been trying to make pancakes gluten free and so far they are not turning out as i hoped.

The always turn out like gooey like, but not at the same time. They are sorta like oatmeal would be if you fried it after you cooked it

on the stove for eating as a hot ceral. they seem to be fully cooked and taste good but they are very wet like, is there a way to change

this or a flour that works better for this purpouse? any recopes idea's or experince's that are like i have been having welcome. I have made

bread and it turned out great and delicous, unlike the tapioca flour bread i bought at walmart which was dry and tasteless and was like

eating bread that got lefft out and partialy dried before eating very very dry. please help!

Welcome, Andy!

 

What flour/mix are you using right now?  If you frequently shop at Walmart, check out gluten-free Bisquick.  I like the pancake recipe, very basic and good.  It is also good for making cookies and breading fried stuff.  The other two things I always keep in my pantry are King Arthur Flour(KAF) gluten-free Baking mix, and Pamelas gluten-free Baking and Pancake mix.  The pamelas makes great pancakes, but their recipe makes them very thin, so I cut out at least a quarter of the liquid (I like thicker, puffier pancakes).  The KAF mix basically can be treated as self rising flour(replaces flour, leavener, and salt) in any gluteny recipe, except bread since that needs special treatment.  It also makes good pancakes.  If you sub it in to a recipe that calls for regular gluten flour, measure it scantly as it is a little more dense.    All three of these mixes have a lot of recipes for them on the company website and I like that a lot.

 

Making your own bread is definitely going to give you the most satisfaction, especially when you just transitioned.  The tapioca loaves are horrible, and I don't know why those are even still sold!  LOL.  The Schar shelf stable breads are pretty good, and most people seem to buy frozen breads for sandwiches and such.  There are a lot of brands that are good.

thank you for your reply, i got the bisquick mix as i already was buying it for pancakes before. I always add a little sugar, sometimes a little vannilla, a litttle oil and eggs so i followed the recipe on the box and added the sugar and eggs and a little oil they turned out REALLY good almost couldn't tell the differ3ence. I used the recipe for bread that was posted for sandwich bread another poster makes only i forgot to buy white rice flour so i used oat flour instead of the rice and added a med. hanful of coconut flours and more sugar then they had listed so it would have a little more flavor and it turned out so yummy, it was easier then regular as you don't knead it just beat and pour a little diffrent texture then gluten breads but it was so dang good. Again thank you for the advice and support.

That is the plus side to gluten-free bread baking... just mix it and throw it in the pan!

I agree, Bisquick makes really good gluten free pancake mix. If you want something healthier, I also like Hodgson Mills gluten-free pancake/waffle mix with flax. It's not as light and fluffy, but it has more protein and it's still yummy.

I haven't tried it yet but I saw Krusteaz has a gluten-free pancake/waffle mix now too.  I like their gluten formula so I'm hoping these are good as well!  I bought some yesterday.

I make coconut flax pancakes.  They are heavy but good.

 

1/4c melted coconut oil

2 scoops protein powder (Vega)

1 tsp vanilla

dash salt

Tbsp cinnamon

1 1/2 - 2c coconut milk and /or water

1/2 tsp baking powder

1tsp bee pollen (optional)

1/4 c hemp seeds

1/2-3/4c ground flax

8 eggs

1/2 c coconut flour

 

I add ingredients in the order listed.  The coconut flour can REALLY suck up the liquid so if it gets too thick as it sits, add more water.  You'll need to spread the pancake batter a bit, it will mostly spread on its own.  I cook it in bacon grease. I freeze the extras and reheat them the next day or too.

 

The protein powder is sweetened with stevia. If I did not have that I would add stevia and cocoa, and possibly use a bit less liquid.

 

They'd be perfectly healthy if it wasn't for the syrup my boys pour on.  LOL

    • You could have the full celiac panel done to see if any other numbers come up high. TTG IGA and IGG, DGP IGA and IGG, EMA. If your doctor is not a gastroenterologist then you can try going to one. They know what to test for. You could also simplify your diet and start a food log. Gradually introduce foods and when stomach pains start you can see what you ate in the last two days to cause a problem.  
    • I had the same issue with stomach pain after diagnosis and it turned out to be soy protein that was causing it.  I never ate much soy before diagnosis and gluten was keeping me constantly ill so I never realized it was an issue till I stopped going with foods with soy on the suggestion of good freind. Not saying that is the problem with you but thought I would throw it out there as a possibility. If you are eating oats you may want to drop those for a bit also since some of us will react to those even if they are gluten free. In addition is there any way you can avoid eating oput for a month or so? You may be getting glutened but not enough to show on the TtG. I could be wrong but I think the DGP tests are the preferred ones for checking with dietary compliance. You should also consider dropping dairy for a bit. Add it back in when you are feeling better starting with stuff like hard cheeses, yogurt and butter that have low amounts of lactose. Hopefully you will be able to figure out what is going on soon and get some relief.  
    • I was diagnosed with celiac 2 years ago and since have been gluten-free. When I started my ttg was 88. I just recently visited the doc because I still seem to suffer from almost daily stomach pain. My ttg came back at 4. The doc suggested I try Metamucil and next week give lactaid a try as I still eat dairy.  The metamucil I took one day and I had such bad stomach pain and loose bowel movements I felt too miserable to try it again. I haven't tried the lactaid yet but in the past I have and didn't see much difference.  Heres the other thing: I do eat out a lot. I try to stick with safe places but every now and then I play the odds. So I usually manage to get sick once a month (lately it's been more) so I went to the doc and had my ttg level tested to see if my body is still getting gluten and this is why I still feel horrible. But my levels came back at 4, so now I'm just wondering... what the heck? I'm feeling super discouraged and doomed to a life of unexplained stomach pain.    The annoying part is all my dr did is give me the results. Like "oh you're continuing to improve." Ok, but I'm in paid so what's going on? No answers, ever. It seems like I get suggestions, but they never do anything and I'm so fed up with my body. I'm tired of waking up frequently wondering what I could have ate that is bothering me. I had no idea two years later I'd still be struggling. Lately the stomach pain has increased and it's daily now again. I've been taking pepto for it and it helps a bit, but I don't want to live life digging in my purse for pepto everyday.   any advice or suggestions from anyone who has been through this are appreciated.  I get that celiac may not be the only problem but I don't know where to go anymore as I've been searching for 2 years.      
    • I agree that this article is a scare tactic.  Looks like this child was starved to death. Note the article states the parents did not seek medical help. Millions of children and adults have food allergies and intolerance but do not have this happen. Following a medical diet is a healthy choice for quality and quantity of life. These types of articles have no value in this place of healing.
    • I also have a serious water problem. I have not been tested in any way but I my allergist said that there are no safe chemical testing for allergies. I get anaphylaxis from chemicals and have an epipen. Chlorine is a problem for me. When I drink tap water I feel like I have the flu and I got shingles when I tried Pur filtered tap water. We do not have floride in our water. But probably sulphur and more. I was drinking distilled (called dead water for lack of minerals) but I saw a video in my area where someone tested the pH of tap and bottled waters. I got some PH  strips and did so too. I was curious because I have a problem with citric acid causing bladder infections. Well my distilled was highly acidic. I can not drink bottled waters that add vitamins or magnesium. I get severe cramping from magnesium, like 12 to 24 hours of it, even supplements and leafy green veggies. I found Crystal Geiser is a clean spring water that tested base. I carry a list of others in my purse. I feel better already. Good luck, I can relate.
