Celebrate Autumn With Tastefully Simple Gluten-Free Baking Mixes

Disclosure: As a Tastefully Simple Blogger I’ll be receiving products throughout the upcoming year to review and giveaway.  The opinions expressed are always my own.

Introducing Tastefully Simple’s new Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Pancake Mix & Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix

Tastefully Simple Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Pancake Mix and Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix

My daughter suffered with diarrhea, bloating and abdominal pain as a small child.  After extensive testing she was diagnosed with a gluten-intolerance. One cookie or a serving of pancakes would make her incredibly sick.  My daughter avoids gluten, the protein found in wheat, rye, barley and triticale to this day.  If she unknowingly eats a product containing gluten she’ll get a migraine in addition to severe abdominal pain.

25 years ago there weren’t many gluten-free products and the ones that did exist weren’t very good.  Pasta, baked goods and cereal were off limits to my daughter for many years.  There’s been a surge in the number of mediocre gluten-free products lining store shelves the last few years.  Most are overpriced and lack the fresh baked taste and texture we associate with cookies, cake, brownies and bread.  If you want truly exceptional “warm from the oven” baked goods or fruit-topped pancakes glistening with maple syrup try Tastefully Simple’s line of gluten-free products.

I was Blessed to receive Tastefully Simple Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Pancake Mix and Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix for Review

My daughter who had a baby in September had a craving for chocolate chip cookies recently.  When I told her I would make her a batch of cookies she said she didn’t want me spending hours in the kitchen baking.  With a new granddaughter and lots of visitors checking in I don’t have a lot of free time, which is why my pantry is stocked with Tastefully Simple products!

Tastefully Simple Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix Review

I simply reached into my pantry, took out a package of Tastefully Simple Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix and combined it with one egg; butter and a few drops of pure vanilla extract.  Before baking I topped each cookie with cherry-filled, dark chocolate chips.  In less than 30 minutes we had warm-from the oven, homemade chocolate chip cookies that were crispy outside and soft in the middle.  Why wait for a special occasion to treat your friends and family to cookies right out the oven?  Making homemade cookies is so quick and easy with Tastefully Simple Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix that you can make them on busy school nights or for an impromptu tailgate party.

Celebrate the flavors of autumn with Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Pancake Mix

Entertaining friends and family should be fun!  Why then do I stress about the food, house and décor?  My home is always spotless and anything I prepare using Tastefully Simple’s mixes, seasonings and snacks is always a huge hit.

A few weeks ago I invited my family over to enjoy “breakfast for dinner”.  Shorter days and cool evenings always reminds me that apple picking season is close at hand.  And that’s the perfect time to whip up a batch of fluffy apple cinnamon pancakes or waffles.

Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Pancake Mix from Tastefully Simple

My daughter is gluten intolerant so I used Tastefully Simple Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Pancake Mix to make a double batch of waffles for the whole family.  Each box contains two pouches of mix, which is enough to feed a large, hungry family.  Just whisk eggs, milk and Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Pancake Mix together and ladle batter onto a greased, preheated griddle for pancakes or hot waffle iron for waffles.  Serve with butter, warm maple syrup and powdered sugar.  For a special treat warm ½-1 cup of apple jelly in the microwave in 10-second increments, stirring frequently.  Top waffles or pancakes with apple jelly glaze and fresh whipped cream.

    I will have to try Tastefully Simple. I am a celiac so this would be great.
