The Best Gluten Free BrandsIf you’re like me, one of the most difficult things about going gluten-free is giving up at least the option of grabbing a muffin or a slice when you feel like something delicious to go with your coffee. So, instead of spending a few bucks on something sweetish and filling, I’m left to decipher whether chocolate is a good enough substitute – and I gotta tell you sometimes it’s just not! I want more variety.
However, not all is lost ... luckily there are a few pre-packaged GF brands which offer sweet treats that aren’t too expensive and, most importantly, are tasty! And let’s face it; with all the health benefits that going GF means, sometimes I don’t want to have a ‘purer than thou’ attitude every day! Sometimes I just want to pretend my small intestine is normal.
To start with, I’ll be putting to the test a few commonly found GF brands that have a baking range, which might include pre-packaged mixes as well as those ready-to-eat varieties.
I’ll be rating each brand out of a total score of 20 according to the following criteria (which lurk at the back of any woman’s mind) ...
- sugar & fat content;
- how easy it is to make;
- taste; and
Plus, of course, I’ll let you know where you can buy these brands.
