Simple Mills Baking Mixes Review

A lot of people do not consume gluten - either by choice or because of an allergy, gluten intolerance, or because they have celiac disease.  As a result, there are many products on the market that are "gluten-free".  

Simple Mills makes it possible for those who are gluten-free to enjoy baked goods without the gluten. Not only are their mixes gluten free, but they also do not contain refined sugars, grain, soy, and dairy. They use only whole-food, non-GMO ingredients that are naturally high in protein and low in sugar. So not only are their mixes good for you, but they are really easy to make.   

I rarely make muffins from packaged mixes because they are usually very unhealthy and bland, but I was excited to try Simple Mills' mixes because they use healthy ingredients and are so easy to prepare.

Since the holidays are in full swing, let's look at their Pumpkin Muffin Mix:

As it states on the package, these are free of:
- GMOs
- Grains
- Gluten
- Soy
- Dairy

Instead, you'll find natural, non-processed ingredients like almond, pumpkin, organic coconut nectar, organic cinnamon, etc.

Each pumpkin muffin has only 130 calories, 4 grams of protein, and 4 grams of fiber

For this particular mix, all you need are: 2 eggs, 1 tablespoon of oil, and 3/4 cup of water. That's it!

Can it get an easier?

Simple ingredients, simple directions

[Note: if  you are allergic to or do not like to consume eggs, you can find egg alternatives on their website at: http://www.simplemills.com/pages/avoiding-eggs]

Combine all of your ingredients with the mix, spoon the batter into baking cups or a greased loaf pan, and place it in the oven (baking time varies depending on whether you're making muffins or a loaf).

In less than half an hour, I had 9 pumpkin flavored, moist, gluten-free muffins.  

Simple Mills Pumpkin Muffins topped with Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar 

Considering these are "healthy" muffins, they tasted great and were very moist!

In addition to this pumpkin mix, they also have:

- Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
- Focaccia & Sandwich Bread Mix
- Banana Muffin Mix
- Chocolate Muffin & Cupcake Mix

Simple Mills products are available on Amazon.com as well as Down to Earth-Maui and Down to Earth-Aiea in Hawaii.
