Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Brownie Mix Review

Bob's Red Mill Wheat/Gluten/Dairy Free Brownie Mix is a more expensive brownie mix than you typically find in the grocery stores. The price ranges from $4 to $7 per 21oz bag. It can be found at locally at Big Lots for around $4.30, and Earth Fare and Publix for $6.99.

Bob's Red Mill describes it as "A deep and intense dark chocolate flavor combines with a wonderfully moist cake texture make our Gluten Free Brownie Mix an instant favorite. A must for all chocolate lovers."

Directions are simple, preheated oven at 350degrees, a sprayed 13x9 pan, beat 3/4c or 1-1/2 sticks of melted butter (or margarine for dairy free), 1 egg, 2tsp GF vanilla, 3/4c warm water with a mixer on medium until combined. Pour batter in pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool, and serve 16 pieces (2x3 inch).

Each prepared brownie has 210 calories from fat. This could be reduced by using applesauce instead of butter.

The texture is a very thick, chocolate-y, cake like brownie. The chocolate used is Ghiradelli chocolate and the quality shows. Be prepared to enjoy one of these brownies with as scoop of ice cream, or dairy free ice cream product. It is thick, rick, and definitely an indulgence.

Gluten Free brownie lovers - REJOICE!! These are a definite pantry item for those days when you need a good brownie.

Thanks for your review of this. I love the Trader Joe's GF brownie mix, but we live kinda far from Trader Joe's. My local health food store likely has the Red Mill mix, though.
