TXMomof4 Posted August 4, 2008 Share Posted August 4, 2008 We have a very good friend whose son is allergic to wheat, soy, peanuts, rye, and a few other things. They just discovered this and it is causing a huge upheaval in their lives. He is having a terribly hard time adjusting to life without "real food" as he calls it, so I thought I'd try to make him some bread that actually resembles something he's used to eating, some brownies, cookies, etc. I went to the store today and it would have cost me close to $50 just to get some of the ingredients needed! Is there some place I don't know about that has any of these things at more affordable prices?? All I could find was 1 lb bags of rice flour, potato flour, etc. and they were all $4-5/bag. The xanthum gum was $10.00!!!!! I ended up buying a bread mix and all purpose gluten free baking flour. Is it really more cost effective to do this than to buy the premade stuff? Any advice or experience? I'm thanking God for my allergy free kiddos right now, no matter how picky they are! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
