Although I like to make most of our treats (and other foods) from scratch there is always room for a decent baking mix. I know there are plenty of people out there that are super busy and they can’t always prepare their food from scratch. Or, and I’m sure if you are a mother this has happened to you, your child comes to you the night before and tells you they have a party at school the next morning and you need to supply them with a gluten free cupcake, cookie, or other gluten free treat. Yikes! That can really cause some issues. Then there are folks like my parents or my in-laws. They want to have special treats for the boys but they often don’t know what the kids can have or how to find delicious gluten free recipes. My parents don’t even own a computer, so there is no easy way for them to look up recipes and since them themselves are not gluten free, they can’t always keep a large stockpile of gluten free ingredients in their house. That is when a readily available gluten free mix such as Betty Crocker Gluten Free Baking Mixes is wonderful to have around. My parents can easily find this in their grocery store, they don’t need to hunt all over town, and the directions are simply to follow. The perfect mix.
Betty Crocker, General Mills and MyBlogSpark were cool enough to give me a beautiful baking pack that includes an 8 inch square cake/brownie pan and a baking tool set that contains a timer, spatula, rolling pin and baster. I used the set to make up my version of Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Pretzel Bars. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
