My Favorite Gluten Free Mixes

Recipes

    I have been gluten intolerant for at least 6 years and I felt like you when I was first diagnosed. I remember coming home and crying. I was so upset that I couldn’t have bread and my favorite chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. Gluten free products have come along way. I love Cup 4 Cup baking flour and Betty Crocker brownie mix. The brownies are so rich and chocolatey that when I fist tried them I think I made them every week for a month. My latest find is a company called Simple Mills. There are baking mixes, crackers, and cookies. I love the pancake,waffle mix and the chocolate mix. The products are made from almond flour so they have a different taste but a good taste. I’ll have to try some of your favorites.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Bob’s red mill 1-1 flour is amazing if u are wanting to make things from scratch! It works in cakes, cornbread, quick breads, brownies, cookies, basically anything besides the ‘real’ wheat flour bread. To cakes and quick breads add a little xanthum gum and see if your family or friends even notice the difference. Love your blog!

      Gluten free food has definitely come a long way, thank goodness! I will check to see if they have the Namaste products at our nearest Costco! Thanks for the tip!:)

    Duinkerken GF Muffin Mix (from PEI Canada) is a favourite in our house. My daughter is a low FODMAP’er (gluten and dairy among other foods). I typically add blueberries!

    So glad your doing better, I have been buying some gluten free, and have enjoyed what I have bought, Trader Joe’s has gluten free waffles and I have bought them an and they were very good. Could not tell the difference between them and ego brand.. I hope you would continue to share which brands you really like. I don’t have to eat gluten, but I know it’s better for me.

    I have been GF for nine years. It took a decade to find out I have Celiac Disease because few doctors even knew to test for it. I remember my first time shopping after going GF my husband and I were reading every label in the grocery store. I burst into tears standing in the middle of an aisle. Yep, I ugly cried while in front of the “Cream of Something” soups. My husband just patted me on the back and people stared. Even “safe” foods had “mystery” ingredients added like “natural flavors” and I had no way of knowing what that meant or if it was safe. At that time you had to call a company to ask about ingredients and most didn’t know what gluten was. I felt like I had to learn to cook all over again. I got really comfortable with it after a few weeks and it only took one accidental glutening for me to vow to NEVER have that happen again. (Sidenote: It did happen again through cross-contamination and it is much worse after you have been GF for a while.) My one problem until recently was sliced bread. Sometimes you just want the convenience of making a quick sandwich. No matter who makes it (gluten free or not), frozen sandwich bread is dry and awful. I searched every grocery store for unfrozen GF sandwich bread and could never find it. Then three weeks ago I found Schar’s Gluten Free Artisan Bakers bread (both white and multigrain) AND Sam’s Choice Classic White Sandwich Bread on a shelf at Walmart! Are they as good as “real” bread? No, but they are FAR better and softer than any of the frozen ones plus they have a pretty long shelf life until opened. Hello, peanut butter and jelly. Making a quick sandwich on bread that doesn’t feel like a brick is back!
