Hi -

Did a quick search of the site and couldn't find anything. I made the sandwich bread using the Bella mix and it was awesome, but also fairly expensive. I was wondering if I could do this myself. Here are the ingredients: Tapioca flour, brown rice flour, sorghum flour, potato starch, flax seed meal, sesame seeds, sea salt, sunflower seeds, organic evaporated cane juice, xantham gum, and yeast.

Anyone have a similar recipe?

Based on some of the recipes I make, I'd give this a try:

Mix the tapioca, brown rice, sorghum, and potato for a total of 2 cups (I'd use 1 cup of brown rice and split the other cup between the rest). 2 or 3 T of ground flaxseed meal, a T of sesame seeds, 1 t of salt, as many sunflower seeds as you like, 2 t of xanthan gum. Mix all those ingredients. I don't know how evaporated cane juice is used or even if you can get it, but a little sugar (maybe 2 t) will help it brown and feed the yeast. Put 2-1/4 t of dry yeast (or one package) in a cup and add a little sugar (1/2 t). To the yeast add about 1/4 cup of warm water and stir, then let it sit for a few minutes. When it has become bubbly and is obviously growing, then you can add it to the dry ingredients along with enough warm water to get all of the dry ingredients wet (probably about 3/4 of a cup, but this can vary and is the trickiest part of these recipes). Mix on medium - high for 3-4 minutes to make sure it's well mixed. It should become smooth except for the seeds and be thicker than cake batter but thinner than normal bread dough (yeah, I know, that's easy for me to say).

Scrape it into a greased 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 pan, cover it with a clean towel and let rise. Preheat the oven to 350. When it rises to the top of the pan (not higher), put it in the oven for 10 minutes. At that point, cover it loosely with foil and bake another 45-50 minutes. At the end of that time, press a finger gently on the top - if it seems very soft and spongy, give it another 5 minutes, and repeat if necessary. Remove from pan to cool. Don't slice it until it is cool.

Without knowing their recipe, it could come out very different but it should still be edible. And you can always use it for croutons. Many recipes have some fat (oil or melted butter) and some eggs to help moisten them and hold them together. You could try that, but watch the amount of water you add because you will have already added some liquid. If you want a larger loaf increase the flours to a total of 3 cups and use a larger pan and another t of xanthan gum, along with more water but no increase in yeast. I have better luck with 2-cup recipes. Good luck!

Perfect - thanks! I should have added that to the mix you are supposed to add 1 c water, 1/4 c oil, and 2 tbs honey or sugar.

Based on those amounts, I'd guess that it contains 2 c of flour total. Good luck! Don't add all the water until you see how the dough looks - keep back about 1/4 cup. The dough should be thick and sticky, but not runny. If it looks too thick, add more water, about a tablespoon at a time and mix it in.

    • 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.
