Grain-Free Gluten-Free Baking Mixes

We all have those days when we need a quick fix and quick recipe to make… I finally found a healthy convenient solution. On a recent trip to North Carolina I was exploring one of my favorite stores there called Earth Fare when I came upon this brand of baking mixes. It caught my attention quickly as I saw words like Gluten Free, Soy Free, Almond Flour, Coconut Flour, and Paleo-friendly. When I read the ingredients and the instructions, I knew I just had to try it out. I have clients tell me they would love to cook and bake more but they just run out of time. So this is a great alternative, you can have the mix done in about two minutes, and then in the oven it goes! My first item I tried from Simple Mills was the pumpkin muffin mix. I personally think that the spice blend in this mix could not be more perfect. My 16 month old son and 9 year old daughter LOVE them too! I have since tried all of their mixes and they are all wonderful! Health tip: when making these products, I prefer to use coconut oil for the oil mix-in ingredient. We know the multiple benefits of coconut oil and this is a perfect opportunity to include it in a recipe.

The Simple Mills distribution channels are still limited, however you can order directly from the company on their website and shipping was very inexpensive: Simple Mills Website

Here’s a picture of the pumpkin muffin mix I first tried…. YUM! Just in time for Fall, ENJOY!!

  1. I love these and my kids love them. I just made the chocolate muffins and put mini chocolate chips in them (of course the healthy ones). :)
