Baking can be a challenge. Gluten-free baking is on a completely different level. So it really helps if everything to your advantage. Using the correct flour mixes really gives you a leg up. If you’ve been doing gluten-free baking for awhile, you know that some mixes taste weird and some are great. The same goes for gluten-free baked goods in general, including store bought and from bakeries. These are the mixes we use the most frequently and a few yummy store bought items.
The links go to Amazon, but some of them are cheaper at Walmart, so you may want to check that out as well. Honestly I’m not sure why the prices for some of these products are so high on Amazon. I mainly just added the links so you can check them out and know what they look like. As you know, we don’t like spending excessively, so I would recommend looking for cheaper options because we don’t spend much on these products.
King Arthur Flour Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Mix
This has been my go-to gluten-free baking mix and flour for a few years now. Right now we’re not baking too much, but we use it for pancakes, coating chicken/meatballs or anything else that requires flour. It just tastes better than using plain gluten free flour to us. When I used to bake more frequently, this is what I used.
Pillsbury Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie MixPillsbury Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Premium Cookie Mix, Makes 3 Dozen Cookies (2 Pack)
We use this mix around once or twice a month. It’s super easy and the cookies are good. Evan is picky about gluten-free food because he can eat gluten, so he’ll only eat gluten-free if we’re cooking at home. He’ll eat these cookies faster than I will, so that goes to show how good they are.
Bisquick Gluten Free Pancake and Baking MixBisquick- Gluten Free Bisquick – Pancake and Baking Mix -16 oz
This was the mix my family used in my early-mid teenage years for pancakes and probably other things, but I just remember pancakes. We don’t use it now because I don’t think they have it at our grocery store.
Bob’s Red MillBob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats, 32 Ounce
If you have more time and patience than I do, you might mix up your own gluten-free mixes and flours. In this case, Bob’s Red Mill is usually the easiest brand to use for that. They have tons of different flours. We also used to use their all purpose mix for pancakes, but then we found the King Arthur one, which is cheaper at our store. In addition to baking, I get Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free oats for oatmeal.
Whole Foods Salted Caramel Mousse Cake
This cake is delicious. Evan hasn’t tried it because I haven’t purchased it recently. It isn’t super moist, which isn’t surprising because it is hard to find a moist gluten free cake. If you hate the word moist, I’m sorry for this paragraph. But it isn’t super dry either. It’s good and chocolatey.
Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Joe-Joe’s
These are the closest to Oreo tasting cookies I’ve tried. Evan even thinks they’re pretty close. They also have several different flavors. It’s nice to have a variety to choose from. The gluten-free ones have been around for ages. I remember them being one of the first gluten-free cookies I ate as a kid. I don’t know if they have it anymore, but TJ’s flourless chocolate cake was also a favorite.
Jovial Gluten Free Chocolate Cream Filled Organic Chocolate Cookies
I honestly haven’t eaten these in 7 years or longer. Calculating that made me feel really old. My mom and I used to love these, but the Whole Foods near us stopped carrying them. They’re definitely not for everyone. My other mom and sister didn’t like them. The cookie part is not sweet at all, but the inside is filled with something like Nutella. If you love chocolate, but don’t need tons of sugar, you’ll probably like these. I can eat like 90% dark chocolate and enjoy it. If you prefer milk chocolate, you may not like them.
There’s our roundup of our favorite gluten-free baking mixes and gluten- baked goods. Short and sweet.
Here’s the links for the items in the cover photo, which all seem much more reasonably priced than the mixes for some reason.
