I am absolutely loving my gluten-lite journey!

Sure, not everything I’ve reviewed has been delicious. There’ve definitely been some not-so-great products (like the gluten-free hot dog buns 9 yuck!).

But, there’ve been some great ones, too (like the gluten-free bread – I still buy this – gluten-free cinnamon rolls, and most recently, the gluten-free beer).

This week, I have a review of the first gluten-free baked good “recipe” (not exactly a recipe, per se, as it comes out of a box) I’ve tried: Arrowhead Mills Gluten-Free Brownie Mix.

PRODUCT:

Arrowhead Mills Gluten-Free Brownie Mix

USES:

Pretty much how you’d use any baked good. For my purposes, I just followed the mixing and baking instructions and ate the brownies! However, some folks might want to add powdered sugar or icing or some other garnish.

PROS:

  • Convenience. These were ridiculously easy to make. Just add eggs, water, and vegetable oil, mix, and bake.
  • Calories. One prepared brownie has about 150-160 calories. Not bad for a sweet treat! I still feel like I’ve indulged, but I don’t feel guilty about it.
  • Cost. I paid only a couple of bucks – about what you’d expect from a package of brownie mix.
  • Taste and texture. If I hadn’t known these brownies were gluten free, I would’ve never guessed.

BONUS PRO: The batter’s just as good as regular brownie batter! :)

CONS:

Really, there aren’t any cons.

The only problem I had was with the baking time. The box instructs you to bake them anywhere from 28-36 minutes. I settled on 32 minutes, right in the middle, but that left the center of the brownies kind of gooey.

Not “Hmm…these are raw!” gooey, but just gooey enough to make getting the brownies out of the pan in one piece impossible.

Still, they’re edible and great tasting.

BOTTOM LINE:

I would make these again (this time, leaving them in the oven longer!) and I’d recommend them to others, too.

How about you, readers! Do you have any experience with the Arrowhead Mills brownie mix, or any other kind of gluten-free brownies? Share with us in the comments!
