I made this today & it was to die for!!!!! I think this recipe has been on this board a dozen times. This is the first bread my hubs actually liked! But both of us at this point in time have to be low iodine AND low salicylate. SO, I need to eliminate the egg yolk b/c of high iodine & sub something for the almond flour b/c of high salicylates.

I know you guys are inventive & can help me. I was wondering if just using the egg white alone would work --- if so that would solve that problem.

Here is the recipe:

1 large egg<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">2 Tbs. brown rice flour<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">1 Tbs. almond meal<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">1 Tbs. golden flax meal<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">1/2 tsp. baking powder<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">3/4 tsp. sugar<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">1/2 tsp. cocoa powder<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">shake of salt<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); "><br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">Spray a custard dish (or any baking dish that will yield a hamburger bun sized "loaf") with non stick spray. Crack egg into dish and stir with a fork until it's well mixed. Add all other ingredients and stir well. Cook in microwave on high for 90 seconds. You'll have to loosen around the edges with a butter knife, but mine came out pretty easily.

I know you guys are inventive & can help me. I was wondering if just using the egg white alone would work --- if so that would solve that problem.

Here is the recipe:

1 large egg

2 Tbs. brown rice flour

1 Tbs. almond meal

1 Tbs. golden flax meal

1/2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 tsp. sugar

1/2 tsp. cocoa powder

shake of salt

Spray a custard dish (or any baking dish that will yield a hamburger bun sized "loaf") with non stick spray. Crack egg into dish and stir with a fork until it's well mixed. Add all other ingredients and stir well. Cook in microwave on high for 90 seconds. You'll have to loosen around the edges with a butter knife, but mine came out pretty easily.

Whew, thanks Jestgar. That was hard to read.

I'd try subbing more flax meal for the almond flour. You might not miss the egg yolk with more flax because flax is a common egg substitute. I'd throw in a wee bit of water or melted coconut oil if the batter seems thicker than usual from missing the fluid in the egg yolk.

What is Almond Meal? Where can you find it?

Ground almonds. I get Bob's Red Mill brand at my local health food store. It's kind of pricy but really good. You can make it yourself by putting blanched almonds into a food processor. Just be sure you don't overdo it or you get almond butter. :lol:

Thanks jestgar for fixing that for me. I didn't even check it after posting.huh.gif Why does it do that when I copy & paste anyway?

Skylark, thank you!!!!!! I will try that. I swear it was really hard not to make about 5 more after tasting the first one & sit down on the floor & just gorge on BREAD! It tasted like homemade whole wheat bread; something that my dad made often around our house. Gaaaa, it was GOOD! I'll try throwing in a bit of water as coconut oil is out as a double whammy of both iodine & sals.

Oh this thing was so quick & easy too!

What is Almond Meal? Where can you find it?

You can also get it from Nuts.com. It is also known as almond flour. Before I bought it I checked & it seems it goes by either name; almond meal or almond flour but they are both the same thing. Then I found out I have to go low sal for some months. But it's in the fridge waiting......

Can u also grind up those tapioca pellet things too for flour?

You can buy tapioca flour. I don't know about grinding up the tapioca pellet things. Maybe someone else will.

You can use just egg white alone (I do that in my bread too) and as Skylark says, just add a bit of water if it is too dry.

You can try to substitute almond flour with some ground cashew nuts, they are low in salicylates. I am allergic to almonds and always use whatever other nuts I have, never noticed any big difference in flavor or texture. Poppy seeds are also low in sals, although they might give a bit different flavor to the bread.

Ah! Thank you Pac. I have cashews & they are one of my safe snacks right now b/c of the low sals. Good tip!

I just thought I would update.

I tried the recipe today using just egg white & leaving out the almond flour but increasing the flax meal to 1 and 3/4 Tblsp. plus adding just a bit of water. It was good! I think it needs a bit more sugar though as the flax makes it a bit bitter.

Next I'm going to try with the cashew flour instead of almond flour.

I wonder how I could make a white-ish bread version of this?

Glad you made some progress on the recipe! Try golden flax meal when you get your next bag. I find it's milder-tasting.

I just ordered some golden flax meal today along with cashew flour, hazelnut flour, teff flour, sweet rice flour & I forget what all else. I'm going to experiment with making a white-ish bread version of this with the sweet rice flour & cashew flour.

Oh, & I toasted some of the last I made & spread cashew butter on the warm toast & I felt like I'd died & gone to heaven.

I find chia seed works in place of flax, but imparts no discernible taste. They form a similar gel when soaked in water too. I find it takes about 15 minutes or so to fully gel. The seeds are very tiny - no grinding required. White chia would probably make less an impact on color than the black chia. Not sure of the proportion, but if memory serves, the suggestion given in the articles I've read was that less chia is required compared to flax. I want to say 1 tsp chia in place of 1 Tbsp flax meal, but I'd have to look it up again.

Thanks RiceGuy! Matter of fact I got a delivery today of a bunch of flours & such i had ordered along with white chia seed. YAY! So I will be able to do lots of experimenting.

Does chia seed make stuff crunchy? Or when cooked does it soften?

No additional crunch that I've noticed. Actually, I'd say if anything it tends to do what other water-retaining binders do, which is to add moistness. Though not nearly as much as the gums.

    • This paper from 2015 suggests the opposite is true: High Proportions of People With Nonceliac Wheat Sensitivity Have Autoimmune Disease or Antinuclear Antibodies. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/26026392/ Of course correlation does not equal causation, but it is compelling and something worth watching. 
    • Thanks Matt again My Doctor just moved away so i dont even have a doctor at the moment, thats why its so hard, ill pretty much be going to some random doctor who doesnt know me at all and asking for a celiac test, hopefully i pick a good one ps you can have the ashes for being helpful    
    • Hello and welcome It can be scary and there's definitely a mental side to dealing with this which is at least as important as the physical. If available to you consider seeking out some counselling to help you process this. It was really useful for me, as were the people on this forum which is a great resource which you should use as much as you need to.  And, easy to say, try to be optimistic!  It may be that you've solved a huge health puzzle whilst you're still young and have lots of great years ahead of you, years which will be so much more enjoyable gluten free. Time will help you learn the diet and what at first seems impossible will become the new normal to the point where you won't have to think too much about it. We are an adaptable species and however hard it seems at the outset you will adapt and you will feel better. Best of luck!  
    • Hi again Long time since I lived down under but I'll give it a shot pending any Aussie members replying... Your naturopath has helped you and put you on what sounds like the right track, but now consider that you may be better off with a conventional doctor for the testing process.  Be wary of food intolerance tests. They are notoriously inaccurate and as you've found expensive. The first priority is to get a celiac diagnosis/exclusion, you can proceed better from there. The tests to request are:  Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG Total Serum IgA Some practices will only test one. Request a 'full celiac panel'. Before you see the doctor make some concise notes / bullet points that detail: Your past medical history Your positive initial reaction to the gluten diet Your wish now to seek a medical diagnosis and willingness to comply with any requirements That should be sufficient for a doctor to request a test.   No! Your naturopath doesn't know what they're talking about if they're talking about the accepted celiac tests. You'll need to do 8-12 weeks eating gluten to ensure an accurate test. Otherwise you're throwing money away.  A local doctor should be able to request the tests so if you have one you're happy with try there. Alternatively you can search to see if anyone within a reasonable distance is listed maybe with Coeliac Australia or via some of the links here https://www.healthdirect.gov.au/coeliac-disease Again, *good luck with it all and keep asking questions, this place was very helpful to me and I'm sure it will prove so to you also. Cheers, Matt                               *ps But bad luck in the Ashes to compensate  
    • I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, but my Mom has Graves.  I have been both hyper and hypo.  Had crazy swings for a while while going through menopause and being undiagnosed with celiac disease.  My thyroid calmed down on the gluten-free diet.  My enlargement and nodules went as well.  Not sure if it was the gluten-free diet or simply reducing my immune response (inflammation)  by addressing celiac disease.  Does that make sense?   In the meantime, you might consider eliminating most dairy.  Celiacs tend to be lactose intolerant --- at least temporarily unless you are genetically predisposed (as are some huge chunk of the world's population).  It could bring you some relief while you complete testing.  You might however, be one of the lucky celiacs who can eat all the dairy they want!  Throw in some veggies  and some healthy fats to help off set your weigh loss.  Your body is probably starving for nutrients right now, so make every bite count.
