Better Batter Gluten Free Mixes Review and Giveaway



We are very lucky here in our household and none of us have Gluten allergies but I do have family members that do and to be quite honest with you it’s hard to bake goodies for family get together that are both Gluten Free and delicious! We have tried many different companies that offered baking mixes fro Gluten Free goodies but the taste to be quite honest was really bad and we were all better off to be goodie free than try to eat the Gluten Free goodies…..well that was until I had the opportunity to review a couple of products from Better Batter, I will state right here up front that they have really changed the way I look ate Gluten Free goodies!

About Better Batter (Taken From Website):

Better Batter Gluten Free Flour is the brainchild of Naomi Poe, and quite literally an answer to prayer.

In 2003, after a year and a half of unsuccessful therapies for developmental and speech delays commonly associated with autism, Naomi asked her doctor, in desperation, if there was something she was missing. Naomi’s doctor suggested that perhaps gluten was behind her oldest son’s autistic symptoms. Testing revealed that he was suffering from gluten enteropathy. Six weeks on the diet were enough to cause an 180 degree improvement in her son – so much so that he was taken off of the ’spectrum’ for autistic behavior.

In 2004, her second child, a bouncing baby boy, began to exhibit signs of gluten intolerance. Quick thinking and rapid action on the part of their doctor ensured that his intolerance was caught before there were further complications.

It came as no surprise, when six months later, Naomi found out where all those Silly genes were coming from, and in 2006, the Sillies’ dad discovered his own genetic links to gluten intolerance.

With four people eating gluten free, it was only logical that Something Would Have to Be Done. Naomi, like most of you, started baking her own breads and goodies, using the information and recipes available at the time.

You’ve all been where she was in April of 2006, tired of paying too much for mixes that required additional special ingredients, didn’t work, or tasted plain weird.

She wanted a flour that would work in her mom’s old recipes, look right, and taste right. The alternative — having to do something resembling either a lab experiment or a religious ceremony for something simple like chocolate chip cookies (five flours, two specialty ingredients, and prayer that the recipe would actually work) — wasn’t an option any more.

One late night, she threw up a desperate prayer to the Almighty and went to bed. That night she had a dream. In it, she was mixing up a formula for a new kind of flour. Waking up, she took this idea – this formula – and literally ran down to the kitchen, concocted the flour mix, and made her mom’s famous apple pie.

My Thoughts:

I was sent some of Better Batter’s Pancake & Biscuit Mix and Fudge Brownie Mix to review and I will admit that I was a little hesitant to try them due to bad past experiences but I decided to suck it up and one Saturday morning “Bug” and my husband was wanting some pancakes and biscuits for breakfast so I thought why not use some of the Better Batter’s and just give them a go!

So needless to say here the first product we tried from Better Batter was the Pancake & Biscuit Mix for breakfast and we made both pancakes and biscuits from the mix and I couldn’t have been happier with the mixing process all we needed was very few ingredients the mix of course, egg, milk or water….we chose to use milk, and that was it for both the pancakes and biscuits it couldn’t get much easier than that!

Now the big test is not the ease of mixing and cooking but it’s all in the taste right? Right, and the most important taster was “Bug” and to our super surprise ate all of his pancake and asked for another one! Our biscuits were wonderful themselves so light, flakey and fluffy and they were delicious! I tried the pancakes (in honor of this review :0)) and I was really pleased with the taste of these as well and I will definitely be recommending the Pancake and Biscuit Mix to my family members that are in need of Gluten Free mixes that taste good!

The next products we tried was the Gluten Free Fudge Brownie Mix and these were super easy to mix and bake and were so good! They smelled really great baking and this isn’t something I’m used to either with gluten free mixes they usually have a different smell to them while baking but these brownies smelled just like a handmade batch and they sure did taste like handmade when they were finished and had cooled off. Now, my husband isn’t big at all on gluten free sweets and usually won’t even give them a try but he said the brownies smelled so good he just had to have one and ended up eating two of them the night we baked them!

Bottom Line:
I am loving the gluten free baking mixes that we were sent from Better Batter and I know exactly where to go to get my goodies for the next family get together and that’s the yummy Fudge Brownies from Better Batter!

I will be keeping each of these mixes around our home for when we have family members visit and stay over night so that I will be able to treat them to delicious breakfasts and brownies to make them feel more like home.

If you or someone in your family has an allergy to Gluten then you should really consider giving the mixes at Better Batter a try…I think you will be pleasantly surprised and want more!
