New Enjoy Life Foods Baking Mixes Have Arrived!

What’s that? Baking mixes? Yes, indeed.

The company that has been making us delicious top-8 allergen-free treats and snacks (and chocolate) for the last decade is now bringing us safe baking mixes. They sent me a complimentary sample to review:

But the best part is – these aren’t just gluten-free baking mixes that require adding eggs and dairy to work most effectively – these mixes are designed to be used without adding in top allergens either. Woo-hoo!!

I’ll be baking soon, but first some observations:

The mixes are higher in protein than most. This is due to the use of higher protein grains (millet, buckwheat, teff).

Only oil and water need to be added to the mixes!

The pizza mix contains inactive yeast, but doesn’t require rise. I expect this crust will be cracker-like.

The mixes contain probiotics. I’m on the fence as to whether this is a good thing. It's likely good for most, but I fear it could cause digestive issues for some.

The all-purpose flour weighs 160 grams per cup (very heavy) – be sure to adjust by weight for the recipe you choose.

I am most intrigued by the brownie mix – which clocks in at 14 grams per serving, yet doesn’t require eggs. In my experience 14 grams is borderline for successfully being able to use a brownie mix without eggs. I’m curious to see whether Enjoy Life Foods has pulled this one off!

Off to bake!

I'm really interested to see what you think of these! I like to keep a few emergency baking mixes on hand for those last minute school events that crop up, when I just don't have time to make something from scratch for my daughter with multiple allergies. We love Enjoy Life...but the cost of these looks a bit prohibitive. If they are really good though...we might consider it!
