SCD Sandwich Bread – Pancake Style
We’ve recently started transitioning over to Paleo way of eating. Another great ‘diet’ that I am using is the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD). SCD is great for those with IBD so I started reading up on it to help with our daughter Faith’s Crohn’s Disease.
We’re sticking with a more Paleo focus but I think there’s plenty of SCD recipes that we’ll be able to use. There are some similarities between Paleo and SCD.
Bread has been one of those staples for us that has been hard to transition out of. Especially for our kids. I found this recipe for SCD Sandwich Bread on the website No More Crohn’s For Me. Their recipe uses cheese. I opted to not include the cheese because that’s not a Paleo option. However, this recipe does have a homemade yogurt. Yogurt would not typically be on the Paleo diet because it’s a dairy. I’m choosing to use it because it is homemade and the process of it turning to yogurt seems to make it easier to digest. I’m also going to be testing out a homemade yogurt using Almond Milk which would make it Paleo then. Here is the recipe I’m using for SCD Yogurt.
Yes, this SCD Sandwich bread looks a lot like pancakes. 😉 It’s also made just like pancakes which makes it super easy.
I actually used my Blendtec blender to combine all ingredients. When you’re making a transition like this, having a great blender is a necessity. I love my Blendtec. This particular one has the Twister Jar and it works great.
After blending or mixing all ingredients, pour on a pre-heated griddle or pan and cook just like a pancake.
When the edges start firming up, then flip over. You’re going for a nice golden brown color.
Lay out individually to cool.
Once your SCD Sandwich Bread is cooled, store in a ziploc baggie.
Use with your favorite sandwich meat, honey, almond butter, homemade jam, etc. YUM!
Here’s the recipe:

What a great mom!!! Good job. What a blessed group of kiddos. I’m looking forward to meeting up with you.
Thanks, Lisa! Without your talk and encouragement, we wouldn’t be on this path right now. Thank you! I’m looking forward to meeting up with you as well!
all the SCD recipes replace wheat flour with almond flour, which my Crohns baby can’t eat because he is allergic to nuts. Wish they could suggest an alternative. When he’s in a flare, he just has to drink lots of fluids and protein drinks until it heals up. We are back on his regular diet and he is happy now, you know until the next flare. Hope the paleo route works for you all.

Oh No! Brenda, there might be other alternatives for you. They have made so much progress since my daughter was diagnosed 8 years ago. I will check all my sources and see if I come up with anything for you.
I’m not as knowledgeable yet on all the workings but I thought I read that some with nut allergies can still eat coconut/coconut flour. Is your son allergic to coconut flour as well? When I first started doing paleo, I used a lot of coconut four. It seems to absorb more than wheat flour so you have to experiment a bunch and use less in your recipes but there are a lot of coconut flour recipes out there so that takes a lot of work out of it. Is your son on meds? How old is he?
what can i substitute for the SCD yogurt? I make it with the SCD yogurt for my husband but my mom wants to make it and she doesn’t do the SCD yogurt. It is delicious and so easy! ty! ty!
I would think any yogurt would work but I haven’t tried. SCD yogurt is just processed different to make it easier to digest.
Saving this recipe! I’m gonna try with plain greek yogurt.
I think that would be fine too. 🙂
