Hello everyone!

I'm new here. :) My son was recently tested for food sensitivities and WHEAT, DAIRY, SUNFLOWER, GREEN PEPPERS & SHELL FISH came back as highly reactive for him. In addition, moderately reactive but also very close behind the "high" reactors were SOY, TAPIOCA, COCONUT, CAROB, LECITHIN, WALNUT and several other things. ALMOND, CORN & EGGS are also IFFY. We have had him on the Feingold Diet program for the last 6 weeks which basically eliminates all artificial flavors, colors & preservatives, but we really saw a HUGE improvement in his behavior after removing gluten & dairy--those foods were making him hyperactive! A week after removing gluten & dairy, we had our calm, pleasant, fun-to-be-around son back again!! We were AMAZED and so grateful for going with our gut and having the food sensitivity test done on him.

I would like to find recipes for bread, pancakes, cookies, etc. for him that don't have any of those ingredients. This has been difficult! Commercially sold gluten-free items almost always have soy, tapioca, or sunflower added into their mixes which we are trying to avoid.

He does really well with rice products/flours and buckwheat, and we have replaced dairy milk with Pacific brand hemp milk. We are testing out gluten-free oats, as well as eggs. I am a baker by trade so I feel like I can get pretty creative with recipes, but I've been so focused on getting his basic diet on track that I've had little time to think about the secondary things.

Any suggestions would be welcomed and appreciated!!! :)

Hey and welcome!

I bake, too. I do bread with half sorghum and half tapioca. And I sell a ton of it!!! Way better than Udi's or anything else I've tried in the store. Basically you need the starch to lighten it up. I love sorghum over rice flour any day of the week.

I will send you a few more things that I do. I would share them with anyone here, but I don't want to post them publicly for anyone doing a search online. :lol: You know how valuable some recipes are.

Thank you both SO much for the info!! It's exactly what I was looking for!

Auzzi, my son can actually have some of the flours you mentioned: Amaranth flour, buckwheat flour, millet flour, and quinoa flour. I've never heard of teff flour, but I will look for it. I do have white & brown rice flours, buckwheat flour, quinoa flour, arrowroot & potato starch, but wasn't sure how to mix them to get the lighter gluten-free bread.

Thanks again!

I think you can use some of my recipes, if you just substitute for the almond meal I have in some of them.

You can take chia seed and soak it in cold water to make an egg "gel". ( I eat eggs, but I will play around with recipes because I don't do flax. ) You can also do this with soaking plain psyllium in warm water. Buckwheat and amaranth are both more sticky than some other flours and do not need as much "gum," if at all. Mashed sweet potato or sweet potato flour gives a nice result sometimes, as does adding canned pumpkin.

Gluten Free gum free yeast free vegan buckwheat mini loaf (will need to omit almond and substitute what you want to get the total flours to 1 and 1/4 cup)

_______

gluten-free Buckwheat pancake or flatbread (this is so easy and works so well, and it's Eggless !) just uses buckwheat, potato starch, and garbanzo flour

can't get the link to come up easily, hmm.

Take a heaping tablespoon each of buckwheat flour, potato starch, and garbanzo flour

pinch salt, pinch cream of tartar, dash baking soda about 1/8 teasp

spices, if desired, sweetener, if desired

mix with

teaspoon of olive or other oil

1/2 teas lemon juice or pure apple cider vinegar

small spoon of agave, molasses, or honey, if desired, or some stevia

enough water to make a thick pancake batter

Combine and pour into heated oiled skillet, cook until bubbles come thru and edges start to dry out a little, and the bottom is browned, then flip w/ spatula and finish cooking. Makes one pancake.

_________

This quick skillet bread works if you sub buckwheat for the almond meal, and use chia or flax gel or egg substitute. Amaranth and sorghum are the other two flours, and with molasses this is like cornbread, sans corn

scroll down the thread for recipe

_________

And of course, Bun In the Cup. This can be done eggless with the above mixture for buckwheat pancake flours. I have done this microwave recipe with many different flours, and with tweaking, all of them work, even with no eggs, if you use certain flours. Might take chia or flax gel for some types.

    • My daughter is having her scope on Tue he said it could still be normal as her bloods even though positive they weren't highly positive. But due to the fact of her on going fatigue even with iron supplements her positive gene test and her dad being a type one diabetic he thinks it's best that he does the scope. Should I start gluten free trial straight after the scope as we can't get back in for results for two weeks and I feel her fatigue is getting worse and we were thinking of trialing gluten free even if scope is negative any thoughts
    • Positive biopsy and blood work?  It sure sounds like your doctor made the right diagnosis.   Let me tell you my story.  Diagnosed after going for a routine colonoscopy because I am over 50.  GI saw my chart and noted that I was anemic.  I have a genetic anemia and I was iron deficient as well.  I lived like that my entire life.  But my wise GI ordered a celiac blood panel and it was considered mildly positive.  So, he ordered an endoscopy to my colonoscopy.   I had been dairy free since I was young.  Was told that I had an allergy.  I had not any GI issues with gluten.   I was an avid baker.  I had nut issues and also mushroom, garlic/onion, and egg intolerances.  I had some pretty severe allergies to medications (anaphylactic) and some seasonal allergies along cats and horses.   I was shocked.  My husband had been gluten free for 12 years prior to my diagnosis.  There is no way both of us would have gluten issues.  But...the tests did not lie.  My iron deficiency anemia resolved within months of my going gluten free.  Two months into the diagnosis, I fractured my back doing NOTHING!  I have osteoporosis as a results of having celiac disease.   Grief is completely understandable.  Denial is a part of grieving.  But the proof will be in follow-up blood tests and how you feel.   So, now I can eat nuts (not almonds), eggs (two a day every single)  and dairy.  Yes, ice cream!  I have yet to get back garlic and mushrooms, but I can live with that.   I have Hashimoto’s too.  .  Once you have one autoimmune disorder, you can develop more.  The gluten-free diet may help, not only your celiac disease, but your UC issues as well.   Try the diet.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised!  
    • Hi Sofie! Listen to KarenG.   We both had iron deficiency anemia when we were diagnosed.  Plus, I have Thalassemia which is a genetic anemia on top of the iron deficiency anemia.   Dumping iron into your system is not the solution.  You need to be seriously gluten free.  You are probably unknowingly damaging other parts of your body....like your bones.  Two months after my diagnosis, I fractured my back doing NOTHING!  Think you are just not getting enough oxygen to your brain?  Think again!  It is probably related to celiac disease.  Celiac disease is systemic.  It is not just about villi damage.   But why am I telling a college student this?   You should be researching your autoimmune illness and ensuring that you do not develop Cancer (rare) or another autoimmune disorder like lupus, diabetes, thyroiditis, MS, Crohn’s, or one of the almost 100 other Autoimmune disorders (common).    Get your antibodies down.  Your mild anemia is the least of your problems.  Raising  your ferritin level may help a little, but healing from celiac disease will help you a lot more!    
    • Let my start by giving a brief summary of what I’ve been diagnosed with. Just over the past year I’ve been diagnosed with Celiac, EOE, lactose intolerance, soy allergy, tree nut allergy. Most recently diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. The Colitis came 8 months after having found out I had celiac. I have never had problems with gluten in my life. Dairy was something I had to eliminate because of the excrutiating stomach pains I would get from it. But I can have gluten any day and not have a problem.  I was diagnosed with a biopsy and followed by bloodwork. But who’s to say that dairy wasn’t the cause? I just feel like the GI was very quick to jump on the diagnoses without fully understanding my medical history, prescriptions I’ve took in the past ie long term antibiotic use, accutance, and 7 years of constant NSAID use.
    • I think she wants you to be strictly gluten free and heal.  Not give you things to patch up the damage you are causing by not getting your antibodies down and healing.   I am sure  she expected that you would take your diagnosis seriously and eat gluten-free.  4 months after your diagnosis, your antibodies would have gone down better.  But you weren't eating gluten free.  Eat gluten free. Take your supplements.  Read about the correct way to get your iron up - B12, vitamin C, don't take with calcium foods, etc
