Bob’s Red Mill Brownie Mix Gluten Free

Bob's Red Mill Brownie Mix Gluten Free

So it’s time for another product review and this time I’m reviewing Bob’s Red Mill Brownie Mix – Gluten Free.

Jesse brought the mix home from the shops the other week and I had a chocolate craving, so thought why not bake brownies? The packaging mentions adding other ingredients like peanut butter, chocolate chips and walnuts to add some extra texture and flavour. I chose to add some pecans to mix it up!

Pros for Bob’s Red Mill Brownie Mix
– Only two ingredients required from your pantry (eggs & butter)
– Option to individualise the brownies with an extra ingredient or two
– Simple one step recipe that only requires one bowl
– Takes 10 minutes to prepare and bakes in 30 minutes
– The brownies are moist with a rich but not overpowering chocolate taste
– Brownies remain fresh for 3-4 days

Cons for Bob’s Red Mill Brownie Mix
– The brownie mixture although moist inside becomes quite dry on top
– There is no guidance regarding the amount of extra ingredients you should add to the brownie mixture

Finally, would I bake these brownies again? Yes, but only if the mixture was heavily discounted at the supermarket and I didn’t have time to make one of my own brownie recipes for visitors.

Please note all opinions are my own and I purchased this product of my own accord.

Chocolate Chip Biscuits Gluten Free

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Biscuits

On the weekend I was dreaming about my upcoming trip with my husband and daughter to Queenstown (New Zealand) and these chocolate chip biscuits. You see, whenever I think about heading to the snow I start craving chocolate chip biscuits. Sounds weird but let me explain the connection…

A month or so before Jesse and I started dating we went on a road trip to the snow with friends. The road trip was about 2½ hours from home and we had all packed some food for the journey and the long weekend away.

While the full list of food we took for the trip isn’t important the fact that Jesse pulled out a container of homemade gluten free chocolate chip biscuits just for me is. He might argue now that he baked those chocolate chip biscuits for everyone, but I knew deep down he was trying to impress me. Clearly it worked, as a month later we began dating, and whenever I think about heading to the snow I instantly crave his chocolate chip biscuits.

Do you have foods that make you think of a certain place or person?

White Chocolate Macadamia Biscuits Gluten Free

Gluten Free White Chocolate Macadamia Biscuits

These White Chocolate and Macadamia Biscuits are the BEST I have ever baked. Seriously.

It’s a big statement but I think they are my new favourite biscuit. They are really soft (which I love in a biscuit) and the combination of lemon, white chocolate and macadamia makes for an indulgent flavour.

I’d highly recommend you bake some!

Gluten Free Lemon Meringue Pie

Lemon Meringue Pie Gluten Free

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged but I’m back with this yummy Gluten Free Lemon Meringue Pie so I’m sure all is forgiven?!

If you couldn’t already tell based on past recipes I LOVE lemon curd. So when my sister gifted us some lemons from their lemon tree it didn’t take long to decide on making this pie. Let me know if you get the time to bake this one, it won’t disappoint!

Orgran’s Caramel Fudge Brownies Gluten Free

Orgran's Caramel Fudge Brownies Gluten Free

Growing up it was rare to have a packet mix cake or muffins in our house. Both my mum and grandmother were whizzes in the kitchen and the reason why I love baking.

Living in such a fast paced society, I realise not everyone has the luxury of time or motivation to bake from scratch though. So with a growing range of gluten free packet mixes available in the supermarket, I’ve decided to have a go at baking and reviewing a packet mix product.

For my first review, I chose to bake Orgran’s Caramel Fudge Brownie Mix having eyed off the product in the supermarket for a few months. Rather than providing you with the recipe, I thought I would talk about the pros and cons of the product, but please know I have not received any form of payment or sponsorship for my product review.

Pros for Orgran’s Caramel Fudge Brownies
– Only 2 ingredients required from your pantry (eggs & butter)
– Easy recipe: simply whisk together all ingredients in one bowl
– Takes 10 minutes to prepare
– Bakes in 15-20 minutes
– The caramel flavour is spot on
– Lasts for 4 days without going dry

Cons for Orgran’s Caramel Fudge Brownies
– The caramel fudge bits are too small for my liking
– Could pass for cake more than a dense brownie

Finally, would I bake these brownies again? Yes I would.
