When I was meandering around in a local grocery market the other week, I stumbled upon gluten-free baking mixes that I had never heard of before. I was curious to know why I had never seen this brand online, in the store, or on any other blogs. So, I picked up the bag, and began reading the little blurb on it, happy to find out that the founders of the brand don’t live far from where I do!
Among Friends Healthy Baking Mixes is a company founded by two moms that wanted to create a cookie mix that was both easy to make, and nutritious. The founders, Suzie and Lizann, think their mixes have the right ingredients to become the next Betty Crocker (and I think so, too!). The cookies are super simple to make, with the only other ingredients being one egg and a stick of butter. Gotta love that!
They have two gluten-free mixes – Phil’em Up and Shane’s Sweet-N-Spicy. Phil’em Up mix is a gluten-free oats, cranberries, and callebaut chocolate masterpiece. When I was making them, I couldn’t stop eating the batter! The cookies turned out to be perfect, and when I shared them with co-workers, the response I got was, “These are AMAZING!”
Kudos to you, Among Friends!
The Shane’s Sweet-N-Spicy cookie mix is made from gluten-free oat flour, cinnamon and lemon zest. It creates a ginger molasses cookie that’s out of the world. The cookie’s chewiness will keep you coming back for more, and more, and more.
My favorite thing about these mixes (besides the fact that the creators are local gals) is that they literally take 5 minutes to prepare, yet they look and taste like their homemade! I like people to think I tried harder than I actually did when it comes to baking, so these mixes are right up my alley!
The Among Friends gluten-free cookie mixes are currently being sold throughout Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. They can also be ordered online through their website.
I highly recommend testing these out. You’ll enjoy them whether you’re gluten-free or not!
