Today’s blog post is dedicated to bringing you an absolutely delicious gluten free pumpkin bread mix – perhaps the best one I’ve ever had and I’m not exaggerating. These baking mixes are perfect for anyone on a gluten-free diet or with Celiac Disease – or even for someone simply looking to add more whole grains to their diets.
As you know, following a gluten-free diet can actually make you fat! Many gluten-free boxed cake mixes are loaded with white rice flours and sugar to [over]compensate for the gluten that makes bread so yummy. Whereas gluten-full cereals, breads and baking mixes are fortified with whole grains and vitamins, gluten-free alternatives often are not…. well, that is until now!
Introducing…. Whole Note Baking Mixes! I’m calling these gem baking mixes my best GF baking mix find ever! The mixes are made with a blend of SEVEN whole grains, including whole grain brown rice flour, millet flour, buckwheat flour, oat flour, flaxseed flour, garbanzo and fava bean flour, and teff flour. Take a look at the nutrition label online. The gluten-free pumpkin bread baking mix has NO SUGAR in it – it’s sweetened only with evaporated cane juice. Sweet!
The company has a great backstory too. When founder, Paul Morris, was diagnosed with Celiac disease he couldn’t find any nutritious and tasty baking mixes he liked. That’s when he set out to make his own – experimenting by blending seven gluten-free whole grains to finally find a taste and texture he liked. Morris knew he was on to something when his daughters like his mixes better than grandma’s homemade breads. He decided to reinvent himself from chemical engineer to food product developer and started selling Whole Note GF baking mixes online, bringing delicious flavors with whole-grain nutrition to GF dieters (like me!) everywhere.
This weekend I hosted a girlfriend brunch at my house and made two loaves of Whole Note’s Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread Baking Mixes. I am not exaggerating when I say EVERYONE raved about the pumpkin bread. They could not believe it was gluten-free, and they loved the taste, texture and pumpkin-spiced aroma that filled my house. I even took out the box to show them that it was made with whole grains and no white sugars too.
The gluten-free bread was the hit of my party and several of my guests took extra slices home for their kids and spouses.
I hope you’ll try Whole Note products for yourself. They are very reasonably priced – only $5.99 for the pumpkin bread mix – and you can also get Whole Note’s wonderful gluten-free baking mixes to make GF pancakes, GF crepes, GF pizza crust, GF waffles, and GF cappuccino and dark chocolate muffins. I can’t wait to try the whole line up!
I suggest buying a few Whole Note Baking Mixes from Amazon. They are available in select stores but why risk it when you can order easily online!
Tip! If you do make the Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread mix, the instructions call for 3/8 cup of butter (or oil). I don’t know anyone that measures butter in 8th cup portions – but it’s equivalent to 6 tablespoons of butter (thanks to my husband for doing the conversion for me!). Simply blend eggs, butter or oil, and pumpkin in a large bowl, then add the mix. Super easy!
