I Want A Krispy Kreme!

I'm having one of those days...sitting in front of the t.v., eating my gluten-free cheese puffs, getting pelted with Krispy Kreme commercials... My husband says "Wow, a donut sure looks good right now!" I, of course reply, "How would you feel if you knew you could never have a Krispy Kreme again???" I just need a little support.

Just think to yourself: Krispy Kreme is bad!! In more ways than one even for non-celiacs!!!

We're eating healthy! I definitely don't miss donuts!! They are so bad for you in so many ways!

Our foods are good for us and super healthy! Just keep thinking that :)

I just had krispy kreme moment this weekend too. Doughnuts are my FAVORITE junk food so it is the hardest to deal with. When I have one of these moments, I indulge myself in my favorite gluten free dessert. I helps make the longing go away!

Feeling your pain,

I got the fix for you krispy kreme lovers!!!! I haven't made them yet because I just received my flour but go to betterbatter.com. Naomi has a well written blog & a recipe for krispy kreme donuts..... I usually don't read many blogs because most are just rantings but this one is a good one.I'm hoping to find time over the weekend to try the donuts....

I have also heard this flour blend is a good one........

Let me know if anyone tries to make the donuts....

Its sooooo not worth it. 10 minutes of "fun" and weeks of awfulness.

I don't have a gluten-free donut recipe, but it sounds like there are some out there.

I hope you were able to treat yourself to something sweet, gluten free and delicious.

I just discovered kinnitoos and they saved me from a meltdown last week. I have started a small "stash" of emergency gluten free treats for when I feel like I am going mad or going to "cheat."

Kinnikinnick makes really good frozen chocolate-frosted gluten-free donuts--I think you can order them through their website.

I have had these before and they actually taste similar to a Krispy Kreme. I had the donut holes though, not the actual sized donuts. I was very impressed though.

I have beaten the urge for the Krispy Kreme with homemade gluten-free angel food cake. My husband and I are actually thinking of starting a gluten-free bakery in Murfreesboro, TN, just for moments like this. I'd like to know where Celiac Specialties is, as I am going to Michigan in a few weeks for a vacation. Thanks everyone. All of you help me so much and I appreciate it.

Give one of the gluten-free donut recipies a try sometime. I recently tried the one in The Gluten Free Gourmet Revised Edition by Bette Hagman. It was more like a cake donut than a Krispy Creme but I was satisfied. It made a lot and froze and warmed up beatifully.

I agree. They'll make you sick in more ways than one. Partially hydrogenated oils are like poison for your heart. I stopped them long before celiac. Even Celiac Specialties have the hyrogenated stuff in them. BHT too-BAAAAAD stuff IMHO. Baking your own is a good option as you could use canola oil.

You know, certain foods can trigger certain emotions...just as certain smells, etc. can do.

Think of a perfume that your mom put on all the time. After a while, smelling the fragrance on someone else may make you think of your mother. Or, if your father (or spouse) where's a certain aftershave...you get the same effect.

When I see, smell, or think of Krispy Kreme donuts, I think of myself as a little girl coming back with all of my cousins and family from the beach in Savannah. We always stopped at Krispy Kream for a treat. Now, as an adult with celiac, I have been known to stand in the bakery section of Kroger and sniff the box! :rolleyes: (This is when my hubby takes the baby and heads to the next aisle over) :P I have since quit going down the bakery aisle.

I started a thread one time (I think in the Baking forum) about having a KKreme donut craving. So, I totally empathize with you!

Treat yourself to another highfat, highcalorie dessert that is gluten-free. If you have a true sweet tooth craving, an apple dipped in peanut butter probably won't fill the void. ;)

Blessings. -Julie

I have tried this recipe from Naomi's blog (BTW, thank you mamaw, I first found her site thru one of your posts!) and although I have not made the donuts yet, I did try two of the variations of the recipe - the potato bread and the flat bread. I didn't have potato FLOUR, so I subbed coconut flour and everything came out fantastically. I will be making the donuts over the weekend though, so I will post back and let you know how it turns out! :D

The donuts came out really really good! I had my oil a little too hot so they weren't perfect, but they still had that really nice krispy kreme type texture. We made regular, chocolate dipped, powdered sugar, and lemon curd filled...talk about a sugar high! :D

It wasn't the better batter flour mixture I used tho, it was the mixture Naomi posted on the recipe, except I subbed coconut flour again for potato flour, which I cannot seem to find anywhere around here. I am definitely ordering some of the better batter flour mix, though. Seems like she has a real talent for getting stuff to taste the way it used to!

Wow, you are making me jealous!!! I didn't get to make the donuts yet but I did use the better batter flour for a couple of my wheat recipes we used to love.... I did not change anything except use this gluten-free flour blend & I must say no one knew the difference from the wheat recipe so I'm totally sold on this flour blend... Plus it is reasonably priced......

Did you use a deep fryer ? What temp did you set it at?

Okay, I can smell your donuts as I type this!!!!

    • Hey Deb, In theory (based on some studies), your small instestine should heal pretty fast (within weeks), but often there is collateral damage that can take longer (like your bone pain).  For me, personally, a gluten exposure can set me back three to six months.  My antibodies can last over a year.  And worse, I now developed autoimmune gastritis and hives.  Yikes!   I had  some hip and rib cage pain when I was first diagnosed.  Two months later I fractured some vertebrae.  I had been undiagnosed for so long, that I developed osteoporosis.  I assume that once on a gluten free diet, your pain should diminish based on a strict adherence to the diet and  your previous experience.   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I know-pretty dumb. I'm usually very careful. I didn't check into it. Thanks for reply. DebLee
    • LexieA, This thread might help you. You say you never have "heartburn/GERD". You can have something called Silent Reflux. It  could also be NERD. some of these links are in this thread but I will post some releavent information in this reply as well. here is a good overview of the difference in this fox news article. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/11/13/gerd-or-nerd-new-type-acid-reflux-doesnt-respond-to-drugs.html but if your throwing up it is probably from Bile Relfux. . . . instead of acid reflux. I actually wrote a blog post on celiac.com about these conditions. the NYTimes article called Bile Reflux a "Shadowland" in Medicine and part of the reason for the title of the post. here is the NYtimes article about some of the issues you are describing. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/30/health/30brod.html throwing up is actually a protective reaction. and this normally protect us from poison's or food poisioning etc. but when our biofeedack loop is broken down like having bile in the stomach instead of the small intestine . . . it can be hard to break this cycle. The green portion is probably the bile portion. It is actually very caustic as Plumbago pointed out.  this would/coul scald our insides (lower GI/Small Intestines). Normally stomach acid is neutralized by bile after it leaves the stomach . .. not while in the stomach. I wouldn't never recommend anybody do this on purpose . .. but if you are already puking your food up then simply buy a pH test kit. testing your food/chyme/puke (food outside the body) you will quickly get an idea of how acidic/basic your food chyme (digested food) is. It will almost be a pH of 4.0 or more. the paleo nurse explains this well why strong stomach acid is important to your health. http://thepaleonurse.com/the-truth-about-stomach-acid-why-low-stomach-acid-is-jeopardizing-your-health/ quoting the paleonurse. "In the infinite wisdom of the human body, the stomach was designed to produce the acid that is necessary for proper digestion of food.  When functioning properly, the parietal cells of the stomach secrete hydrochloric acid that bring the stomach pH to a range of approximately 1.5 to 3.0" if it is a higher pH than this you can benefit from taking BetaineHCL to restore your stomach acid to more natural level. . . especially if you are not already taking PPI's since a proton pump inhibitor is lowering stomach acid. .. . by their very ability to cut off almost all stomach acid production. **** this is not medical advice I only know taking powdered stomach acid (BetaineHCL capsules)  helped me. I was not barfing my meals though. . . so your experience my be different. Maybe Ennis_tx will comment because he has some of the same symptom's/issues. But if I was puking I think I would be curios to know what my pH really is? And not Assume? anything at this point. If you test your stomach pH with easy to buy pH strips you will know whether it really is high pH (low stomach acid or a little stomach acid as your describe it) or low pH (really high stomach aid) that is causing the issue's. Once you know for sure you  will know who to go about correcting it. Supplementing with BetaineHCL is fairly harmless . . .unless you have an ulcer. And you will/would probably know it instantly if you take some BetaineHCL and it feels like someone is putting out a cigarette in the middle of your stomach.  It is acid burning your sore/ulcer. thankfully eating protein/food quickly neutralizes/raises stomach acid especially when taken with a glass of water. staying hydrated with a meal also helps improve digestion so be sure to take some water/drink like a tea or juice etc. for example if you want to the BetaineHCL to work properly. Milk has the opposite effect.  If you feel a burning milk can coat the lining of your stomach helping to erase/ease the effect of strong acid. And why people who eat hot **** five alarm peppers aka known as Hot heads keep milk close by if they need to dampen the fire in their stomachs from eating too many peppers. . . . and drinking water can aggravate this practice of eating the hottest peppers you can find. I hope this is helpful. I have rambled on long enough. be sure to read the sickboy user in the medhelp thread of how he helped his GERD/bile reflux. here is medhelp link for easy reference included in the "silent reflux" thread if you haven't read it yet. https://www.medhelp.org/posts/Gastroenterology/UNCONTROLLABLE-BILE-REFLUX-PLEASE-HELP/show/738242?page=1 he was suffering for 5 years and got better so don't lose hope. It can seem very daunting but people on this board do get better. we have used different methods but people do get better. again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me. good luck on your continued journey but it is not a long way back if you know the way. 2 Corinthians (KJV) 1:3,4 3) “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4) who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them (sufferer still suffering)   which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” posterboy by the grace of God,    
    • LOL sorry but really? You trust that, dominos, papa johns, and pizza hut ALL say they can not 100% guarantee their gluten-free pizza are celiac safe. THEY USE the same prep areas, same ingredient bins, same ovens and in many cases the same cutters and spoons used to spread the sauces and cut the pizza. I doubt the employees would even bother changing gloves between pizzas during rush.   Seriously if you want a gluten free pizza....gut a premade one in the freezer section from UDI, Dayia, RealGoodPizza or a crust from cappellos or califlower foods and make your own....Here please save yourself here is a list. BTW Pizza hut uses UDI crust and just tops them with their sauce etc....CCing in most cases and delivering them. Also the REAL good pizza will mail you cases of their pizzas fully made. Califlour foods and capello will mail you empty crust by the case. SO you can order them if  local stores do not carry them.
