Try It Tuesday

The other day, I was picking up a few things at Walmart and I passed the gluten free section. I like to stop and look because my mother-in-law and a good friend of mine both have Celiac and whenever I see new, GF products I like to mention it to them.

 

One item in particular caught my eye. It touted that it was not only gluten free but vegan, non gmo, and grain free! Plus, it also had spinach hidden in it! Intrigued, I grabbed a pouch and tossed it into my basket.

I was super excited to try these and test them out on my kiddos. I followed the instructions and baked those puppies ASAP.

When they first came out of the oven and cooled for a few minutes, I tried one.

I wasn’t too impressed.

Huff the Hubs and Huff the Tot, however, LOVED them!

Kid-approved!

 

It wasn’t until the next day when I tried a brownie without heating it up that I saw what they were talking about.

 

HOLY MACKEREL, THESE THINGS ARE DELICIOUS!

I think they just need time to cool, settle, and let all the ingredients “mush” together for a bit. I will absolutely be buying these again!

 

A few things I’ll do differently next time:

~Pour them into a bigger pan than an 8×8. The package said to bake them for 20-22 minutes. In my 8×8 pan (like it recommends on the package) it took 45 minutes and the middle of the brownies were still gooey.

~Add in 1 tablespoon Enjoy Life chocolate chips. The reason I say this brand is because they are still allergy-friendly!

~Make them without the intention of eating right away. These brownies were sooooo much better the next day. Next time I bake them, I’ll keep that in mind.

 

This company also makes other mixes too, such as carrot cake, chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookies, and a bare muffin mix (meaning you can add ANYTHING to them to make any kind of muffin you want!).
