It's been really cold here in Missouri so I have been having cocoa every night with Hersheys cocoa powder and rice milk. What else can I do with cocoa powder? would it be good in coffee? Any ideas?

I don't know how it would work in coffee but years ago I used to make hot chocolate in the single packs (like Swiss Miss) and instead of adding water, I'd fill the cup with coffee. And it was good.

I know the Flourless Chocolate Cake from the King Arthur website has some cocoa powder in it but it also calls for chocolate or chocolate chips. I did use Hershey's cocoa powder.

ETA: It is gluten-free

How about swirling some into meringues or pavlova? This may sound odd but I promise it is delicious - I make rubs for beef with cocoa powder and spices. I also add some bittersweet chocolate (don't see why you cannot do the same with powder) to my chili, etc. Or make a yummy mole sauce.

It is also nice mixed with equal amounts of granulated sugar and a touch of cinnamon sprinkled onto cookies.

I make brownies using cocoa. I don't remember your other intolerances - milk? My recipe uses butter but I bet you could use butter sub or shortening.

We use it to make chocolate for ice cream. Warm it up and have hot chocolate on our ice cream!

    • Yes, definitely! The sooner they find out if they have it, the sooner they can heal up and, as cyclinglady said, avoid a lot of potential long term health issues. Also be aware that, with bloodtests, false negatives are more common than false positives. I'd recommend they get a full bloodwork panel done to check for vitamin deficiencies, which could in itself be a sign of malabsorption problems. I had iron anemia as a teenager, which looking back was probably my first Celiac symptom. My mom and my sister both have Celiac as well. You could also suggest that your parents or any siblings get tested as well.  
    • Designed to reduce or eliminate symptoms of gluten contamination in gluten-sensitive individuals, the product known as AN-PEP, marketed in the U.S. as Tolerase G, is a prolyl endoprotease enzyme, derived from Aspergillus niger, that has shown promise in breaking down gluten proteins. The latest news comes in the form of a small study that shows the enzyme to be effective in the stomach itself, where harshly acidic conditions render many enzymes ineffective. View the full article
    • I can not help you with a cheaper price (google it), but if you have celiac disease, I would make sure the alternative gluten free flours are not milled with gluten flours by calling the manufacturer.    I personally make sure that my gluten-free flours are certified gluten free.  I do not worry about a can of tomatoes.  Odds are the contents are just tomatoes and have not been exposed to gluten during the manufacturing process.   Be careful about buying from open bins in a store.  Chances for cross contamination are great!  We had a member here who smartly requested access to unopened bags each time she went into a store and bypassed the open bins.  The store was really nice about it.    
    • I think that your villi are intact.  So, normally that would mean no evidence of celiac disease.  But Victoria is right, that they should have run a celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  Why?  The small intestine is vast.  If spread out, it is larger than a tennis court!  The biopsies may not have captured the damaged areas. Consider asking your doctor for a celiac blood test and continue to eat gluten daily until the blood draw or better yet, until you get the test results.  A negative on the blood test will really help rule out celiac disease. A small price to pay for piece of mind.   i hope you feel better soon!  
    • Yes, it is the same test. When used in conjunction with  celiac testing, it verifies that the celiac IgA  test results are valid.  Used alone (not running the celiac tests), if  the Immunoglobulin A result is above or below range....then you are dealing with another set of problems.  For example, my result was above range.  This can be attributed to my having more than one autoimmune disorder and at the same time, it validated the IgA celiac test results.
