I will say it did give me an awesome idea! If I was a truly good cook and perfected an awesome tasting recipe and could market it! I could probably make a killing! I mean wouldnt you just rather buy SCD food already prepped rather than having to cook it yourself?

Scared to make the bread!!! I made the muffins and the peanut butter cookies yesterday and I am not optimistic about the baked goods!
My partner did cook the stuffed Zuchini from the book and it tasted wonderful....Hes a good guy at least he tries...Oh yeah and I made the honey garlic chicken wings last night! Now those were the bomb!

Doc, what was wrong with your muffins and what kind did you make? I have a banana nut muffin recipe that is FABULOUS, but it's not the one from the SCD site. A friend of mine who was born and raised in Switzerland loved them and says they taste just like home... Let me know if you want it!

Also, the company you speak of already exists. It's Canadian. I have a friend in Seattle who orders from it quite regularly. Here's the link:

Did you get the honey garlic chicken wing recipe from the SCD site? That sounds like one my son would like!

Hey Emom!
I made jus tthe plain almond flour muffins, then again I bought my almon dflour from Trader Joes and it is actually almond meal, dont know hom much of a difference between almond meal and almond flour as its just ground nuts???
The wing recipe I got from the SCD book "btvc" Im on my way to the book store to buy another cook book as the ones in the SCD "btvc" are a little dated it seems...Oh I also tried to make the honey frosting and got completely grossed out! LOL

i tweaked the peanut butter cookie recipe into an almond butter one that is legal for the makers diet. tastes great.

the baking soda/powder arent powerful enough leavening agents to make the dough rise properly, so breads, muffins, cakes, etc dont rise and thus dont come out good. if some one has figured this out let me know.

imho, home made almond milk is way better tasting than the store bought kind, be it organic and unflavored. the only problem is that making it yourself is a bit of work and is more expensive than buying it made in the store.

a friend of mine tried to make almond flour before. she said it was a disaster and to just pony up the cash to get the already made stuff. try bob's redmill farms (i think that is the name).

Bob's Red Mill is out of this world. For their gluten-free stuff (sold for consumption to celiacs), they have a dedicated product stream, separate from their WG-containing products, and then they run ELISAs in the finished product, looking for any trace of contamination.

THAT is what I call professional.

I have not even been tempted to try the "bread" recipes. There is a wonderful recipe for zucchini pancakes (I use them as a dinner replacement for potatoes or rice or as a breakfast item) in the Moosewood cookbook. It called for a tablespoon of flour, but you can use almond flour or even leave it out (makes it a bit sloppy until it has cooked for a while). I have also used pea flour (not scd legal, but it is not a large amount).

I found a couple other sites that sell SCD products. This first one has cookies, bread, jams, etc. I'm thinking of getting some honey apricot jam to go with my Almond Butter & Jelly sandwiches (I'm allergic to peanuts wink)

This site even has cake and brownies. I wonder what they taste like?

Anyone want to try this brownie recipe? They look good anyway. Maybe I'll brave it and make a batch this weekend :).

you can tell by the picture they didnt rise much and then collapsed into itself. i dont think this was a complete recipe. it will be too runny with no flour/grain to soak it up - you'll never have cake/brownie batter consistency otherwise.

you wont taste the honey much as the 2:1 ratio of nut butter to honey will over power it. use agave nectar as that is sweeter or do a 1:1 ratio. i would suggest adding vanilla extract or almond extract (esp if using almond butter) and/or cinnamon. up the omega 3's with fresh ground flax seeds or add flax seed oil.
