I found a new gluten-free product while wandering around my local grocery store (Fred Meyer) the other day. Well, it’s new to me anyway. I was with my mom and we’ve decided that we like to grocery shop together because for whatever reason, when we’re together, we take more time to look through each aisle and always find things we haven’t come across while shopping by ourselves.
I found this mix not in the gluten-free section, but in the tiny sugar-free/diabetic section. Not sure why it happens to be there because there’s sugar in the mix…but that’s where it lives, alongside Maple Grove’s gluten-free brownie and cake mixes that I also didn’t know existed.
I used the mix to make pancakes this morning. They have a very nice consistency and cook up fluffy, not flat and dense, like a lot of other pancake and waffle mixes I’ve tried. I used almond milk in place of the 1 1/3 cups milk the recipe asked for. They are very flavorful and remind me a little of the way yellow cake tastes. They taste sweet but are relatively low in sugar with only 45 grams in the entire box (15 four-inch pancakes).
They are made with long grain wild rice, soy flour, leavening, natural flavor (which I’m assuming is probably vanilla since it tastes like yellow cake mix) a little cornstarch and xanthan gum. It doesn’t have a gazillion additives, which is nice.
While I prefer a less sweet pancake mix, I still enjoyed these and the mix will be great to have available in the camping trailer this summer.
Maple Grove Farms should ditch the illustration on their box of pancake mix and replace it with your photo. Yours looks so much more appetizing. Yum!
Ha! That’s funny…my aunt said the same thing when she saw my post of Facebook. 🙂
I just came across this after googling this pancake mix, I’m an employee at Fred Meyer and hav seen this product multiple times, and wanted to know a little about it, I just wanted to tell you that I appreciate ur description. I will b sure to check back for others you may have.
Hi Nicholas! Thank you for stopping by my blog, I appreciate it. In which city are you a Fred Meyer employee? If you’re in my city and you work at the valley FM…I might have to ask you some questions! LOL Like why they don’t carry the Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix anymore. It was SO good!! I will give you the link here:
