Better Batter Gluten-Free Flour/Mixes Review and Giveaway...

We recently had the chance to try some really fun baking mixes from Better Batter, a gluten-free flour/mix retailer.





The three products we reviewed were the All-Purpose Flour Mix, Fudge Brownie Mix and Pancake & Biscuit Mix.About the All Purpose Flour:

About the Fudge Brownie Mix:
"Better Batter Gluten Free Fudge Brownie Mix was formulated to look, act, and taste just like - frankly, even better than - gluteny Duncan Hines style brownie mix – our mix even makes a generous 9×13 pan. No special methods needed – just add water, oil, and eggs or pureed beans.

What we thought: Better Batter makes some of the best gluten-free mixes we've found:) I love that the all-purpose flour mix works cup-for-cup like regular flour! The results were pretty great...amazing muffins, cookies and cupcakes! If you are doing gluten-free holiday baking this season, you should definitely check out this flour mix!! The brownies were deliciously fudgy and one box makes a full 9x13 pan! Excellent for holiday entertaining:) And for those gluten-free holiday breakfasts, Better Batter Pancake & Biscuit Mix comes to the rescue! The biscuits were a little sweet for our taste, but the mix worked wonderfully for pancakes and I'm sure it would make a tasty waffle as well:) I loved that all the mixes were super easy to prepare and needed minimal ingredients that we usually have on hand anyway...water, eggs, milk etc:) If you want to eat gluten-free without sacrificing taste, Better Batter products are the way to go!
