What is your favorite gluten free recipe? I am being tested for celiac disease and already feel better today having not eaten anything with gluten in it.

One thing to think about... I don't know what stage you are at in the testing, but if you start going "gluten free", that removes the antibodies the blood test tests for.......

"If the person being tested has not consumed any gluten for several weeks prior to testing, then celiac disease tests may be negative (although this may require many months of gluten-free diet)"

I have so many that I love, I don't know where to start. Our son cannot have any dairy or gluten so we basically eat a whole food diet with a lot of grains, legumes, meats, veggies, fruits, and nuts.

Some of our favorite snacks are almond butter balls, pumpkin bars, hummus and corn chips. Some of our favorite easy meals are homemade chicken fingers (made with almond meal)....our kids love these, marsala chicken, Tinkyada brand brown rice pasta with homemade pasta sauce, and homemade chicken sausage patties.

When you go completely gluten free it can be overwhelming, but we have a great gluten free support group that publishes a shopping guide each year and it lists all major brands and products and if they are gluten free or not. One year Ragu pasta sauce was safe, but now they aren't.....they add wheat flour as a thickener. Gluten is sauce, salad dressings, pickles, cereal, shampoo, medicines, lotions, toothpaste, etc. It is frustrating sometimes (and spendy), but well worth it. Things like almond meal, coconut flour, GF bread, etc. are so them in bulk and save a ton.

simple Crock pot chicken with mashed potatoes and what ever vegi is your favorite.

peanut butter cookies - 2c peanut butter, 2c sugar and two to four eggs mashed together and then baked like normal cookies... you can add nuts or chocolate chips too. These are very yummy and even my picky kids will clean a plate of these!

There are a few bread mixes for bread machines that are delicious, too!

Best of luck staying gluten free!

My daughter follows the Specific Carbohydrate Diet ( and which is a gluten-free diet among other things. If you search for SCD recipes, you'll find quite a few to choose from. My favorite simple recipe is banana pancakes....

Put 3 eggs and 1 banana in a blender. Blend until combined/smooth, add some cinnamon (optional). Butter a griddle/pan and pour very small amounts of the batter onto the griddle/pan. When the pancake is bubbling a bit, it should be ready to flip. It takes a little experimenting, but they look a lot like regular pancakes and taste great too. I put honey or fruit on ours since my daughter can't eat syrup.

Tomatoes with mozzarella and basil, "pamela's" baking mix for pancakes; try ground up flax seed and ground pecans mixed with a little rice or oat flour on fish or pork chops to skillet fry...very good. Ezekiel bread may work for you.....

So I've found that some gluten-free products are amazing, while others are not at all like the real thing.(I'm sorry, I just have to tell it like it is). Anyways, you should peruse around the world of gluten-free and try different sorts of things. There's this great site that actually has product samples you can choose to try for free and they have a gluten-free section.

Happy hunting!
P.S. the Sahale Snacks are some of my new favorites.
