I just got diagnosed with egg intolerance, dangit. I've been mostly baking SCD-style with almond flour, flax meal, and coconut flour because I don't do well on starchy foods. All my low starch, SCD-style recipes have a ton of eggs.

Now I'm at a complete loss for baking. Does anyone have any low-starch, egg-free recipes for muffins or quick breads?

Are you okay with dairy, like yogurt or cheese or is that out, too ? I can't remember. :rolleyes:

How about gums, such as xanthan or guar ? Psyllium ? Chia ?

What about the EnerG Egg Replacer stuff, http://www.ener-g.com/wholesale/egg-replacer.html That is potato starch, tapioca, leavening, methylcellulose mixed in water, and it's only 1.5 teaspoons of the dry mix per "egg."

For egg substitute, you want to combine something with "lift," such as leavening, with something with gumminess, and for lower carb, something with protein.

Other gummier flours besides the almond, are amaranth and buckwheat. Small amounts of them added to any recipe, plus soaked chia and room temperature water to make a "gel," used in a recipe with baking powders or baking soda and an acidic, will get you roughly the same result as "egg". This is especially true for single or double serving sizes the bun in cup recipes for microwave. Pre soaking the buckwheat for 10 min to 30 min gives impressively gummy results.

How does your body react to tapioca ?

Can you do bean flours ? (and while we're on this subject, can anyone tell me where to find garbanzo flour that isn't Bob's red mill and wasn't processed with oats ?)

Coconut flour seems to be really sort of a pia in eggless recipes the few times I've attempted it. But it might be a counter reactive to the drying power and toughness of a bit of psyllium.

Sorry for all the questions, but trying to figure out what ingredients I need to do the prototypes.

Have a look at this one:

http://www.pure2raw.com/2011/09/gluten-free-low-sugar-pumpkin-muffins/

grain free pumpkin muffins

Original - Uses amaranth, buckwheat, arrowroot.

Tapioca can sub for arrowroot, and the other 2/3 can be something like half almond meal and 1/6 and 1/6 buckwheat/amaranth, total is one cup flour.

Says can sub more flax gels for the eggs, or 1/2 cup yogurt. Since the recipe already has flax, could use chia gels. If you can use yogurt, then, you're all set.

I wouldn't be stuck using the regular oven for these, I would try them out in the microwave first, in little cups, using a half recipe,M to see what they do.

You don't have to use sugar, can use stevia, for example, or go more savory and leave it out.

Thanks! I can do guar gum, psyllium, and chia. I forgot you can sub chia for eggs. I'm going to play with flax too. Cow dairy is iffy, sometimes I react sometimes not. I seem to be back to tolerating goats milk so might be able to find goat sour cream.

I can do enough starch to try the Ener-G egg replacer. I might give that a go in my regular almond meal recipe.

Amaranth or buckwheat taste great and that recipe looks tasty but it's still kind of a heavy carb load for me in the morning. If I eat too much starch at breakfast I'm pooped and starving by lunch. Maybe if I just have one with some sausage... This no-egg trial is a pain. Fooey.

Or you could try making yogurt out of the goat's milk, using a dab of regular yogurt.

I bet if you put some chia into some canned coconut milk, say a tablespoon into a half cup, and then added a bit of buckwheat, say 2 tblsps, the concoction would be Pretty Thick after a short soaking. Then you could add almond meal, oil, and some leavening and try it as a bun in cup microwave thing.

You might want to try a form of beans for breakfast, IF you can find or prepare some that don't have cross contamination, for a protein. Beans with olive oil, cumin, vinegar are filling and don't digest too quickly.

What a PIA about the eggs. I would be so annoyed. :angry::o

Yeah, the jury is still out. I had a really strong response to eggs on an IgG test so I have to eliminate/challenge to be sure. Thing is, I tend to feel really awful on Monday and I usually make omelets or bake on the weekends. <_< I also came up positive for soy on the IgG test and I know soy doesn't agree with me. Dairy came back negative so I'm praying I've been mistaking egg reactions for dairy and I'll have dairy back. I'd happily trade eggs for dairy!

Thanks for the help! I'll try the chia/buckwheat/coconut milk in a few days when I get a chance to shop for them. That sounds better than the methylcellulose in the Ener-G stuff. I really prefer cooking from whole foods. :)

Beans for breakfast isn't a bad idea, though that's usually what I have for lunch. I'm also eyeing my jar of peanut butter.

Someone suggested I try tinned pumpkin to replace eggs or butter. It may just work. Also, you an grind maybe....7 or 8 blanched almonds with a tablespoon or two of water, and it makes a creamy-pastey thing, and it can replace eggs as well.

With your peanut butter, use that in the milk substitute, and blend the peanut butter, milk, whatever fruit you're allowed, and some whey powder if you can have it...and you've got yourself a lovely "milkshake". OR dairy-free ice cream?

Have you seen this website? www.elanaspantry.com. I really like her paleo bread recipe. She has similar recipes for banana bread and pumpkin bread although I haven't tried those. I also do the breakfast bread. I love it because there is no flour at all - uses almond butter as the base. I've never tried to eliminate the egg but if you read the comments section, someone almost always tries an egg replacer and posts how it went.

You also might like the Spunky Coconut (www.spunkycoconut.com). She has posted some doughnut recipes recently using psyllium husk powder which I've never used, but the pictures look amazing! She mostly uses coconut flour, and has quite a few egg-free recipes on her site.

I have used egg replacer successfully in Elana's paleo banana bread.

    • Hello, Often drugs that end in –artan are ARBs, and they work by blocking the angiotensin receptors. I’m not sure what the exact difference is between the two medications you mention, though. Have you called the manufacturer of losartan to see if any of the fillers contain gluten? It might be a good idea to know what those fillers are. In my drug book “dyspepsia” and “gastritis” are mentioned as side effects, but they did not drill down to the specificity of villous blunting. I did some googling, and in addition to what Knitty found, I came across this: Small Bowel Histopathologic Findings Suggestive of Celiac Disease in an Asymptomatic Patient Receiving Olmesartan “Although Rubio-Tapia et al are careful to avoid claiming a proven causal relationship between olmesartan therapy and the observed spruelike enteropathy, the data are highly suggestive of more than just a coincidental association. “They further suggest that a potential mechanism for the enteropathy could relate to inhibitory effects of angiotensin II receptor antagonists on transforming growth factor β action because transforming growth factor β is important in gut immune homeostasis. “Although anecdotal, these observations lead to the hypothesis that olmesartan, and perhaps other angiotensin II receptor antagonists, could be a cause of intraepithelial lymphocytosis in architecturally preserved proximal small intestinal mucosa.” (One of the patients in question was offered the opportunity to do a gluten-free diet, but he/she declined.) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3547582/ So, it looks like you are definitely on to something, and if this turns out to be a “thing,” would probably warrant dissemination on a wider scale. You didn't mention what your BP is with the medication or was without it, but please let your health care provider know if you do decide to discontinue your blood pressure medication. It's often recommended not to DQ suddenly, which can cause the BP to spike in some cases. Plumbago   ETA: Just because a drug can cause a particular side effect does not mean it does in your case. I just thought I'd add that, but nevertheless totally and completely understand the cause of concern in any case.  
    • Lol funny thing me and my dietician were talking about things that could also cause villi blunting years ago. He brought up a interesting one, he had a case where someone was taking massive amounts of Metamucil several times a day, He said it was like 2-4 tsp 3 times a day and making into hot gel drinks for weight loss to feel full. Anyway what this had done "scrubbed" his intestines so much with the abrasive fiber it had actually damaged the walls and blunted the villi.  He compared it roughly scrubbing with a loofah several times a day and it had like a fine sandpaper slowly eroded the insides of his intestines faster then it could heal.  He says because of that he would never suggest anyone to take the full dose of psyllium husk for longer then a week straight before rotating off of it.
        Not medical advice posterboy and this is a dangerous things to play with I know, but with your BP perhaps try to help regulate it with cinnamon oil, and watching and playing with your salt intakes of potassium and sodium. These tend to effect my blood flow and how I feel often. I am unsure if BP related, mine always checks great when I do check it. But Cinnamon is one thing I can not live without, I take several tbsp a day of it or a few drops of the EO. I have been doing this for over a decade, before that and when I do not, I start feeling cold, not wanting to move, and just want to curl up in blankets...no clue why if it is health, blood, neurological, or termogenic.
    • Is it the rectum or do you think it's more in your tailbone? As I get intermittent tailbone pain that is excruciating a couple times a month.
    • She may be one of those people who got diagnosed only via blood. Some tests can come back false positive. Or maybe only via biopsy and it turns out she had H. Pylori. Who knows. Absolutely could happen though.   One of the things that surprised me too was when my doc said it can weeks to months for symptoms to develop on a gluten challenge. I always had this image of getting so imminently sick that there was no question about the connection with gluten.   
    • Yea. I hope she isn't like one of my blood and biopsy diagnosed relatives who then had a gene test that showed she didn't have one of those 2 most common genes.  She was then told it was a misdiagnosis and went back to eating gluten. She is young so she could also be in what they call the 'Honeymoon' period that used to cause doctors to think celiac could be outgrown.  In young adults it can seem celiac has resolved because the person can consume gluten for a time before the antibodies start causing symptoms again. Pure conjecture on my part.
