Welcome to ABC's and Allergies! I hope you will enjoy some of my thoughts and experiences with allergies and homeschooling, and try out some of my recipes. I have found a new passion for creating excellent meals that are free of Mandie's allergens, and are so yummy no one realizes they are "allergen free". I am also passionate about raising awareness of food allergies, and raising money for FAAN.

1 cup garfava flour
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 1/2 cups millet flour
1 1/2 cups gf oat flour
2 cups tapioca starch
1 cup potato starch

Yummy Sandwich Bread
 (top 8 free) [makes 2 loaves]
4 cups flour blend*
1 Tbsp. xanthan gum
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup Vance's DariFree Non Dairy Powdered Milk Substitute
2 1/4 tsp (1 pkg) active dry yeast
3 Tbsp. flax meal dissolved in 9 Tbsp. warm water [or 3 eggs]
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup agave nectar (or honey)
2 cups warm (110 - 115 degrees) water

Combine flax and water and let stand for 10 minutes.  Grease and flour two 8-inch bread pans.  Mix dry ingredients together in a medium sized bowl.  Set aside.  Place flax goo, oil, vinegar, and agave in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer.  With the paddle attachment, mix ingredients together for about 30 seconds. Add half the dry ingredients to the wed mixture.  Mix just until blended.  Add remaining dry ingredients and mix for about 30 seconds, until blended.  With the mixer on low speed, slowly add warm water until well absorbed.  Turn the mixer to medium-high speed and beat for 4 minutes.  Bread dough should resemble cake batter.  Spoon the dough into prepared pans.  Set aside in warm place to rise, about an hour.  While dough rises, preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Place pans in preheated oven on middle rack and bake for 50-60 minutes until bread's internal temperature registers 200 degrees with an instant read thermometer.  Let bread cool in pans for 10 minutes.  Remove loaves from pans and place on a wire rack to cool.
