Could someone please tell me what the ingredients are in Pamela's gluten-free flour mix. Also what's your favorite premade-store bought flour mix? Our store only sells Bob's and Arrowhead Mills. I have only tried Bob's. I normally make up my own mixes. I see so many recipes for Pamela's. Just wondering...Thanks so much for your reply! :)

If you start using Pamela's, there is a learning curve, especially when it comes to adding fats. I've learned that if I decrease the amt of fat added (oil, butter, etc...) by 2/3, the recipe is usually perfect. It is really forgiving when it comes to baked goods. It does NOT work well for pie crusts though--but I didn't decrease the butter in my recipe, maybe I'll have to retry that, imagine, a semi-healthy piecrust..... :huh:

Anyway, I love it and I use it all the time. I tried to recreate the mix and I came pretty close, but not close enough. My mix is PERFECT for Lorka's flax bread though, so that was worth all the trouble!! ;)

If you find that you do like it, then buy it in bulk from Amazon. Sign up for their "subscribe and save program" and get an extra 15 percent off and free shipping off of each shipment. The program is like putting in a standing order, but you can cancel at anytime, even after the first shipment. It's free shipping even if the order isn't $25 (and they ship immediately, unlike the other free shipping program where they sit on the order for awhile <_< ) It also tells you that it's about to ship so you can delay an order if your not ready for it yet. I would try a small bag purchased locally first though, just to make sure you like it.

I also tried a "Pamela's knock-off" recipe that was pretty good but Amazon's bulk/subscribe&save program ended up being cheaper for me and I don't have to keep so many ingredients in my house.

I'm a HUGE Pamela's fan. Also love their wheat-free/gluten-free bread (and yes, I get that through the same program). I use it for bread, dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, and pizza crusts.

I made pie crusts with Pamela's that I thought turned out well and tasted as good as the "real thing".

(I don't care for the bread, however, too sweet for me. )

I have only been at the for about 6 months and Pamela's is the only mix I have used and I love it and so does my family. (which are not gluten free) The first time I made the pancakes I had to make a double patch and my daughter said that the chocolate chip cookies were the best she has had. I use it for coating when we made orange chicken and with my bread crumbs when making pork cutlets. The scones on the back of the bag are to die for I use the for strawberry shortcake. Thanks to the help of the wonder people on the site and Pamela's chocolate cake mix I had the best bithday cake ever this year. As you can tell I am told sold on Pamela's and I have a son who is really picking and doesn't have to eat what I do and he loves the things I make with it so that alone makes me give it a thumbs up. :D

:( Yes, almond flour. I was going to buy some pancake mix tonight and I realized it had had almonds. My ds is very sensitive to things processed in a nut facility. He can't even eat Puffins!

Does anyone know of a good Gluten-free, nut free flour?

I like Pam's mixes too! I did the "bagel" variation w/ her bread mix and had the closest thing to a bagel I'd had in more than 5 years!!!

If you google "pamela's gluten-free mix copycat recipe," you'll find one or more recipes to mix your own flour blend to VERY closely approximate Pamela's mix at a fraction of the cost.

But if you don't have time/space to do so, order in bulk!

Thanks! I'll try that!

Ditto...me too. I live an hour and 15 minutes from the store that carries Pamela's, so that copy cat recipe will help...thanks!

Hi,

I often buy Hodgson Mill's gluten-free baking mix, at my grocery store! It's good for choc chip cookies, pancakes, waffles, coffee cake and really good brownies. Those recipes are all on the box! It has millet, sorghum, brown rice and xanthum gum in it.

I made a Betty Hagman biscuit mix this morning, and used the Hodgson Mill's gluten-free baking mix with quinoa, amaranth, cornstarch and tapioca for the flour blend. The biscuits were too soft, but tasted good! Next time I'll use less liquid.

I'm allergic to almonds, as well as most beans, so I can't use the garfava flour blends or some Pamela's. I usually blend my own since I have so many other foods to avoid. I do use alot of Bob's Red Mill mixes, too.

I have a box of it but have been scared to try it. :blink: Now I will, thanks for the tip. There is a recipe for pie crust too...Have you tried it?

I see the ingredients are millet, garbonzo, brown rice and x-gum(I call xanthan that for short).

    • Hi! I've just been recently diagnosed as Celiac through the whole biopsy-shebang, and I have a little bit of insight on the whole diagnosis thing and how I was eventually diagnosed, and my advice for you. Brace yourself, this might be a bit long, but it might be worth the read and I promise I will eventually get to the point. If you don't want the huge story, skip to the long line of capital As: I first saw my doctor when I had a few problems swallowing. I've compared it to when you're nervous and you feel like you have a lump in your throat - but after I eat and (sometimes) drink. I just mentioned briefly it to my family doctor when I was addressing another issue, but right away he referred me to a gastroenterologist and ordered a barium swallow x-ray test. The x-ray came back completely normal, and so the g.e. then suspected GERD, put me on acid blockers to see if they would work, no harm done sort of thing. The only thing I got out of the acid blockers were the side effects, so it was back to square 1. The g.e. said that the next test he could do was an upper endoscopy with biopsies. (hint: the celiac test!) Wanting to find a solution to my problems, the endoscopy was scheduled. Pretty painless, I was in and out in a day, but the results took much much longer. Biopsies, or the little pieces of my esophagus, stomach, and small intestine, were sent to the lab, and they came back clean. I didn't really go back to the g.e. for a whole year after that because life became busy, I wasn't prompted to follow up, and I just dismissed the swallowing problems the best I could and went on my way. Now, I've never been huge on the gluten, big bread-y sandwiches or croissants or pies were never foods that I super "enjoyed". I wouldn't feel bad after eating them, I just didn't like the taste of bread so much, but I loved cookies, cake and a lot of other things that do have gluten in them. I lead a lowish gluten life but I wasn't really monitoring it that way. Everything changed when I got really nasty (systemic) poison ivy. My eyes were swollen shut, and the rash was everywhere. I almost went to the hospital, but cooped out at the family doctor's place and got a script for prednisone (a steroid). But, I found that after I had tapered off the steroids, I had magically become lactose intolerant. So back to the family doctor again probably because I broke my toe or something, but we also got to talk about this magical lactose intolerance business (because I love anything dairy and it was indeed devastating). He was surprised as there is literally no correlation between steroids and becoming lactose intolerant. He asked me if I still had the swallowing problems, which I did, and so it was back to the g.e. for round 3. because my family doctor "does not believe in coincidences". Meeting with the G.E., he mainly addressed the swallowing problems telling me that he had done what he could to diagnose with the technology that we had at the highly specialized hospital that we were at, and I would have to travel about 3 hours away to see a different doctor who would do some tests involving the muscles in the esophagus. But right before I was about to leave, we started talking about lactose intolerance. He brought up other foods that I was avoiding (if any), and then the conversation went to gluten. I mentioned that I had an aunt that was gluten-sensitive. He advised that I do the blood test that can show an indication of celiac whenever in the future. I decided to do it that day. At this point in time, I was not eating much gluten because of the fact that it was personal preference. The normal range for values in this test is from 0 to 20. A few weeks later, I learned that I scored a 35. A second upper endoscopy with biopsies was scheduled, but this time I was told to eat a moderate amount of gluten everyday before the procedure. I ate about two slices of bread per day, which is more than I normally would. I was normal for the first two-three weeks of the gluten plus diet, but then I became really sick. I started getting the normal celiac symptoms, like diarrhea and extreme tiredness. Near the end, I had debilitating stomach pain and I was 2 times more asleep than awake each day. I couldn't do the 2 pieces of bread a day some days, but the pain was still there. I knew that I wouldn't ever have to force myself to eat bread for a test ever again. I was called a few days before my endoscopy telling me that a kid in a worse state than me had to take the OR during my time. I forced myself to eat more bread for another month and a half. The day finally came. I was diagnosed celiac, which I have concluded to be initiated by (1) the steroids/poison ivy and (2) the gluten binge fest.  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Celiac Disease isn't completely understood yet. Most of the time if you weren't showing symptoms when you were a baby (so your case) it means that celiac was/could be triggered by an event in your life that causes stress on the body (like stress, physical injury, etc.).  The positive result that you got from the blood test doesn't automatically mean celiac, but it could. Here's some options: Talk to your doctor (or a different doctor) or even a specialist gastroenterologist (you can get a referral from a family doctor (general physician)) and see if you can do the blood test again, you have to have some kind of gluten for this to work in advance, so if you don't want to break your gluten-free streak, than don't really invest in this option. If you feel comfortable, you could even ask to do this test under a few scenarios (no gluten (now) and after a gluten binge, compare results). If you do this test and your indication is low off gluten and then high after gluten, I'd probably skip the biopsy. That's a strong enough sign that you don't need to put yourself through the painful-gluten binge. Maybe this is what that first doctor just assumed. But having that test when you haven't had any gluten could make the difference - it acts as a control. Go straight to the biopsy. You could do this, but I'd probably do the blood test first. I went through a lot of stress with the gluten-binge that you have to do to get an accurate result, you would also be breaking your gluten-free diet that may/may not be helping you right now. Do nothing, stay on your gluten free diet hoping that it is helping you. But if you are not celiac or gluten-sensitive (celiac before it starts to wreck your small intestine), going gluten free isn't healthy - you can do some research on this if it interests you. If you feel bad/unhealthy after going gluten free it's probably a sign. Good luck, also know that you might come to a point of stress in your life that can start celiac's destructive path. Ultimately, it is your body, and you should not feel forced or hesitate to act on health issues that impact you.
    • I'm sorry that life is so hard right now. Really.  I can't imagine working 3 jobs and trying to manage this terrible illness.  I think about American society and their obsession with food often.  Whenever you look at the internet, there are all these fabulous gluten-free recipes, but when you don't have time or money to cook these things, a simple gluten-free lifestyle is just that - simple. There isn't a lot of variety, so it's kind of boring. But, I guess I have gotten used to being boring. I just eat corn chex and fruit or yogurt for breakfast. I eat a lot of eggs, beans, rice, corn tortillas, nuts, chicken, fruit and veggies.  A loaf of gluten-free bread will last me 4-6 months in the freezer.  I buy a bag of dried beans for $1.29, I soak them overnight, and put them in the crockpot the next day. I add different spices, sometimes chicken and Voila! - dinner is ready when I get home from a long day. Family gatherings are miserable and I haven't quite figured out the best way to deal yet. If my grandmother were still alive, I imagine she would be a lot like yours - well-meaning but not really able to understand the nitty-gritty.   I just reassure my family that I am fine and that they really shouldn't do anything special for me. I bring a bag of Hershey's kisses or other gluten-free candy I can nibble on along with my meal and then I try to treat myself to a nicer home cooked meal later in the week when I have time to cook - because who has time to cook during Christmas???? And, I agree with knitty knitty. If someone else in your family/friends were gluten-free for medical reasons, it would make socializing a bit easier. One of my husband's good friends is NCGS. When we get together as a group, we can make each other special dishes and it helps to feel less isolated.  Good luck!  
    • Hi!  Um, please forgive my quirky sense of humor..... Celiac Disease is genetic... All first degree relatives of people diagnosed with Celiac Disease should be tested for the disease, too.  Gall bladder problems are often associated with Celiac Disease.  Your diagnosis might save your whole family from further medical problems as they age and the disease progresses... You need to set a good example if relatives are similarly diagnosed.... and then everybody will have to eat gluten free at family gatherings....  
    • That's what I thought!  My father has gluten sensitivity and I almost regret telling the doctor that because I feel that made her jump to conclusions because of that.  He never had the biopsy either.  I feel like doctors think it's just easier to say it's celiac when they show a gluten sensitivity to avoid additional testing, even if that diagnosis doesn't make any sense at all.  My doctor didn't even offer the biopsy, and said the blood work was enough.  Should I seek a third opinion?  I mean, I've been gluten free for 9 months...
    • It will prolong your life....celiac is a autoimmune disease that  causes your own immune system to attack you. The longer your eating gluten the worse it gets, I mean all kinds of other autoimmune disease, food allergies, food intolances. One day you could lose the ablity to eat carbs, or sugars, or become randomly allergic to tomatoes or corn all cause you decided not to be on road to healing I am not kidding here. I am allergic to corn, can not process meats, have another autoimmune disease that makes it so I can not eat dairy or CARBS/SUGARS.   I wish I could go back in time and go on a gluten-free diet a decade ago. Worse that could happen you could develop cancer or other complications and yes we have had this happen to a member before on our forums. Think of it like this your just changing brand here I will give you some links to some gluten-free foods, and how to order them, You can even order alot of them online this should help simplify it for you. I suggest thrive, amazon, or one of hte other links from there, Many you can order from the manufacture. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/
