Let's be honest ... being gluten-free and liking to bake can sometimes feel like a curse because it really can be tricky to find that perfect recipe that everyone will love, is the right consistency and the right flavor.
Your gluten-free baking woes are going out the door my friends! I had the chance to try the Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix from Mom's Place Gluten-Free and it was so good. Not only was it well-received by my whole family that was over this weekend, but it was super easy to make.
The mix and other ingredients come packaged in this nice big bag. When you open it, the sugar and chocolate chips are actually separately packaged in their own bags inside of this one. All I had to do was pour it all in a bowl with some butter, eggs and vanilla and then bake it. Doesn't get easier than that!
There was more dough than I needed for this weekend, so I was able to make two dozen and then freeze the rest which is going to make entertaining a breeze in a couple of weeks. Of course, the thing we all want to know is ... how did it taste?!
SO. GOOD. Friends, even my non-GF family was digging into these with gusto. To give you an idea of just how good these are, I came home from a couple of meetings yesterday and one of the first things Dan told me was "I saved the last cookie for you". That's love y'all. It also meant we polished off a whole lot of cookies in not a whole lot of time. Not sorry about it!
There's really nothing better than knowing exactly what you're eating, especially when you have food allergies and need to be mindful of every ingredient that's going into your body. As someone who has tried the GF baking thing, it's honestly really frustrating because you have to supplement with so many different kinds of flour. If you're like me, you get a little tired of having to replenish four different varieties of flour plus other obscure ingredients and so this was really a godsend because it was pre-packaged and safe. It took me a half hour to make two dozen cookies from start to finish. That's gluten-free baking I can get behind.
I highly encourage you to check out their other selections as well, because they offer so much more than baked goods.
