Gluten Free Food Review

I haven’t reported on what I’ve tried in the past few months, so I have lots to cover.

Betty Crocker has come out with gluten-free cake, muffin, piecrust and brownie mix.  They sell here for around $4.75 a box.  I first saw them in the grocery store a week ago, so I haven’t had a chance to try any of them yet.   All the information is on their website, along with offers for free products samples and a sign up for a gluten-free living newsletter.

I did buy a Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Cookie Mix and a Bob’s Red Mill vanilla cake mix, neither of which I’ve made yet.  The cookies are on tonight’s agenda. 

My sister bought me a Bob’s Red Mill brownie mix for Christmas, and I did make that.  In the past I shied away from the Bob’s Red Mill brand because I found some of the products had an unpleasant aftertaste.  The brownie mix was a keeper though.  It made an 8.5 x 13 pan of cake-like brownies that tasted wonderful.  I cut them up and froze them and they kept well in the freezer too.

I also gave Crunchmaster crackers a try.  I bought the original flavor, but they had others.  I like them, but if I have some kind of reaction to them if I eat too many.  I’m not sure what ingredient causes that since they’re gluten free.  They do contain four different kinds of seeds, so maybe one of those is the problem.

 

I saved my best find for last.  I bought a Gluten Free Pantry French Bread and Pizza Mix at Whole Foods a few weeks ago.  Gluten Free Pantry is my favorite brand for flour and baking mix.  This was the closest thing to real bread I’ve eaten since I started eating gluten free.  It tastes nearly as good as fresh bread, and the consistency is right on.  Again, I cut it in chunks and froze it because I couldn’t eat the whole loaf before it got stale.  Well I could have…..  Anyway, this one is definitely worth a try.

As always, I have no affiliation with any of these companies.  I’m just a satisfied customer.
