Orgran Easy Bake Bread Mix

I am still baking my way through the samples that the folks at Orgran Foods sent me to review. A while back I reviewed the Orgran Alternative Grain Bread Mix, and today it’s time to talk about the Orgran Easy Bake Bread Mix.

Orgran makes a full line of gluten-free and allergen-free baking mixes. One of the things I love about this product line is that not only are the mixes free of the top eight allergens (as well as gluten-free and vegan) but they don’t require adding eggs or dairy products. All you need to add is water and oil. No adaptation is necessary.

Another great feature is that this is a rising bread, yet it contains no yeast. How cool is that?

Just mix it up, let is rise for 15 minutes, and then bake it.

This mix makes a true white bread that is very easy to slice, making is a great sandwich bread. The crust is what amazed me the most about this bread. It has a true crust on top – no flaking or sogginess after a few days like you often see with gluten-free breads.

Overall, I do prefer the Orgran Alternative Grain Bread which has more flavor, but those looking for a white bread replacement will find the easy bake bread to be a great choice.

Note: This product does contain maize(corn) starch, and not suitable for those with corn allergies.

Another great allergen free, gluten free flour substitute is Hemp Flour. It is super nutritious and very versatile. There are lots of other hemp products that are easily integrated into your diets. I use Manitoba Harvest Products, they seem to be of the best quality and the company is farmer owned which I respect. Check it Out.

Anonymous - thanks for the suggestion. I love hemp milk, but haven't yet tried hemp flour. Sounds like a great alternative!
