Gluten Free, Whole Wheat, and more Delightful Surprises from Krusteaz

Disclosure: The author of this blog was NOT financially compensated to write this review.  I was provided with the products mentioned  in exchange of my honest  opinion which may differ from yours.  

Nothing can beat the  smell of delicious,   fresh-from-the-oven,  baked goodies right?  Although baking is not my cup of tea,  I  can certainly do it once in a while when I am in the mood.  Glad there are  easy to bake mixes available from the store lol.  I received five boxes of baking products from 
Krusteaz to review and we got busy during the snow days  when my kids were off from school.  I have two boxes of flat bread, one is an Italian herb and the other is whole wheat.   I also got two gluten free mixes, one is the double chocolate brownie mix and the other one is the blueberry muffin mix.
My husband and daughter baked the  the double chocolate brownie.  Aside from it's gluten free feature, it is also different from other mix you can buy because it has brown rice flour instead of a typical  flour incorporated in brownie mix in other brands.  As described in the box, it is thick and chewy, and so delicious!  Our daughter is not a  sweet tooth kind of girl but she love to bake so she had fun  baking this with her Dad.
This brownie is very rich.  My husband did not think that it would be that good because he only buys one brand  when it comes to mixes.  I, on the other hand, I don't mind trying different kinds because you never knew what you are missing if you don't try some brands right?
I am glad we tried this  one from Krusteaz because I love it and my son definitely was in heavben while eating his piece, and another piece, and another.. lol.
Our son is the the sweet tooth in the family so this was a real treat for him.  Believe me when I say that the pan of brownie only last  two days.
Yesterday, the kids were off again from school due to severe weather so I got busy in the kitchen while they were doing their homework.  

I made a lasagna yesterday so my  original thought was to make  flat bread only to eat with our lasagna but I remember that I have some mushrooms and  bell peppers in my refrigerator so I made half of the  Italian herb flat bread mix into flatbread pizza and the  the other half, pain flat bread.  This  mix needs 1 cup  very warm water and 1/4 cup oil.  You have to allow dough to rise  for 20-30 minutes before baking on a 475 degrees  heat,
I am so glad that I made pizza because  that's what my daughter ate for dinner.  She forgot about the  ravioli lasagna that  I made as soon as she saw the  toppings on the pizza.  I love how the flat bread turned out, it's not  saggy at all.  It was light and the herbs  just pops in your mouth  like a  perfume.  
Then I baked the gluten free blueberry mix for dessert.  I am not much of a muffin fan but I would say that I like this one.  It has  real blueberries that came in a can and all you have to add is add 1/4 of water, 1/3 cup vegetale oil, and 3 3ggs.  Then bake it for 14-16 minutes in 400 degrees oven.  

I am very surprised that my daughter like this so much.  I think, it's because it has real fruits in it and  the sweetness is not over powering.  In fact, she requested one of this for  her  dessert on school lunch today.
I haven't made the cobbler topping yet because I have to  buy me the fruit that I need but I will absolutely  update  this post once I  am done.  Update:  I made the peach cobbler and it was delicious! 
I am saving the  whole wheat flat bread when   my eaters are craving for some homemade pizza.  
The Whole Wheat Flat bread is equally delicious as the Italian Herb one.

Aside from the  superb tastes, I also love the fact that Krusteaz  put recipes  at the back of their boxes.  It gives you other option how to  prepare and serve them.  I would definitely buy their products on the store.  For those of you who prefer or have  gluten free diets,  you should check out Krusteaz.  They have  different varieties of baking goodies.

Hmm that brownie mix looks yummy! Since it’s gluten-free, it’s perfect for my diet! :)

Lisa Codina said...

This product looks amazing!!! I usually make my own gluten-free foods but sometimes I get lazy and go to boxed stuff. I have never heard of this brand...I wonder if I can get it in Canada??

Jessica said...

I do most of my baking from scratch, but occasionally reach for a baking mix when short on time or patience. Krusteaz is always in my pantry...I'd reallylike to try the Flatbread Mix!

Krystal Butherus said...

Oh my goodness. Everything looks so good! I would LOVE to try more GF recipes.

With the cobbler topping I think you could get pretty inventive with a few different recipes! Everything looks so good.

mail4rosey said...

Two days is good for a pan of brownies. ;) I like Krusteaz. We just picked up one of their blueberry muffin kits.

Lisa said...

I'm so excited. Im gluten free and have not heard of this brand. Can't wait to try it now!

Gabriel Bregg said...

We use Krusteaz here when we are doing gluten free (and it might be going that way full time, before it was just for close friends who have a son with Celliac disease). I'm very impressed with the flavor and the texture is close to normal also.

Chrystal Mahan said...

Krusteaz makes some pretty darn good stuff. I love their pumpkin bars. I like seeing what other people make and how they use the mixes to come up with their own stuff.l

Lynndee said...

Honestly sis, I haven't tried anything gluten free yet. I've always heard or read about it. Even restaurants here offer gluten free food. I have to look into that.

Bradley Finnearty said...

These look really good. I really should try to get a little healthier with my eating habits.

Ashley Howard said...

I'm surprised that these look so good! I have seen a lot of gluten free items that look less than desirable! We are fine with gluten in this family, but if we ever have a gluten free visitor, I will be sure to try these!

Cher Littleton-Megasko said...

My best friend is gluten-free and she's also a chocoholic. I'll have to ask her if she knows about this brand!
