It's been a few years since I got a chance to have fry bread, the type that was part of my childhood and potlaches when I was a bit older. And I'm old enough to know better, to eat healthy foods most of the time. There's a reason that I don't make it at all and I don't seek it out. And that's without being gluten free.

But I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to make gluten free fry bread? I know it's a question that someone else asked more than two years ago without any success. (I checked.) On the other hand...I figured it couldn't hurt.

How do you make regular fry bread? Maybe we can convert it.

I am more than a little giddy right now. Never mind that I have no idea where to buy betterbatter--there's a possibility of fry bread. This will join the rank of fried green tomatoes on the list of foods that I can now eat that remain gloriously bad for me. (Next on my list: kolaches. Yes, I know my extremely mixed heritage shows in my food preferences.)

As for how one makes fry bread...

2 cups flour

3 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 cup milk

Deep hot fat in frypan or fryer

This is the basic recipe--the version when I was a kid was powdered milk instead and any fat there was in the pan. And I'm actually laughing at the idea that one would only make a recipe that only has 2 cups worth of flour; I've never seen this any less than quadrupled.

Gluten free breads that don't require yeast seem to work better for me.

This recipe would be fun to try with different flours to see what different flavors you could create.

Almond flour...

Amaranth...

I was just looking at my old fry bread recipe the other day. I haven't made it gluten-free but I think just subbing the flour for a gluten-free flour blend and adding some Xanthum gum would do it. Let me know how they turn out. My kids would be really surprised if I made these for them. I don't think they have had them since we left AZ.

I'm not going to have a chance until at least Thanksgiving (yay essays and second-round-midterms-of-the-semester), but I'll keep you posted.

    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden. 
    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
    • Garden of Life brand Dr. Formulated Organic Fiber. It's certified gluten free. Also free of psyllium husk, dairy and soy. Also found that just simply increasing fiber intake works wonders. Perhaps try skipping a protein for at least one meal and fill up on veggies and fruits.
