We made our weekly trip to Costco last night, and did our usual search for new Gluten Free products, and were definitely rewarded this time around! We found 3 great new products:

  • Sabatasso‚Äôs Gluten Free Pizza (2x 496g cheese pizzas in the pack)
  • Bubba Burger gluten free beef chuck burgers with sweet onion (12x burgers in a box – 1.7kg)
  • WildRoots Ancient Grain gluten free pancake mix (1.5kg)

We picked up a pack of the pizzas, and a bag of pancake mix, and review will come soon. Let us know if you’ve tried them!

Sometimes making something from scratch is more hassle than it’s worth. Rarely. But alas, these times do exists. A prime example is when I need to make muffins for nine children. Nine very picky children. I have been trying to find a recipe that pleases them, is economic, and is relatively easy to make. I have tried a plethora of from-scratch recipes, and boxed mixes. If the recipe/mix meets all of that criteria, I will use it again. And again. And again.

Today I tried Glutino Natural Muffin Mix for the first time.

Gather up the supplies you'll need.

What would muffins be without the chocolate chips, right? The beauty of this mix is that you can add in fruit or chocolate chips, or whatever else you fancy.

The only thing I did differently than the box was melt the butter. I find it did not mix well with the egg and vanilla until it had been melted. After doing that the batter was relatively easy to work with. I didn’t find it to be at all gluten-free-baking-sticky. I was impressed.

I filled the cups 2/3 full and found that I was able to make slightly more than the 12 the box promised.



The muffins themselves baked up quite nicely. I filled the cups 2/3 full and found that I was able to make slightly more than the 12 muffins promised on the box. John and I both sampled the fresh baked product and found they had a pleasant consistency. The real test will be when the kids try them….

 

My rating:

9/10 – Taste

9*/10 – Price
As with most things gluten-free I found them a bit on the pricey side. That said, I bought four boxes ones on sale.
