This review will kick off a series of reviews for Bread of Life fresh baked goods. Since many of their products are packaged individually and have a shelf life of 7 to 10 days or so, I thought they would be a great option for gluten free traveling. They may be purchased online for $2.79, or in select natural foods stores in the southwest.

Bread for Life Gluten Free Bakery was started by two homeschooling families in 2002 and is based out of Missouri. Their products do not contain any rice flour ( gasp! is that possible in a gluten free product?!?) and feature wholesome, rich, high quality ingredients. (Click HERE to read their amazing story of how the Bread of Life bakery came to be). Their dedicated bakery is free of wheat, gluten, rice , oats, rye, peanuts and tree nuts.

First of all, these hefty and filling gluten free chocolate chips muffins are incredibly soft and scrumptious. As I gingerly sliced the muffin in half, I expected it to crumble since it was so soft and moist. Nope, not the case- hardly a crumb! These muffins have a smooth texture and mild pleasant flavor that screams ” I’m homemade!” The body of the muffins are not grainy or gritty like some gluten free baked products, and do not taste gluten free at all. Seriously. They are that good.

It is obvious high quality ingredients are used. The fact that free range eggs and sorghum flour also make this gluten free product appealing. The muffin was mildly sweet, flavorful and was perfect paired with a big glass of ice cold milk. The best way I can describe the flavor of this gluten free chocolate chip muffin is simply delightful, sinfully rich and lip-smacking good.

Although the body of the muffin is soft, smooth and moist, the topping threw me for a loop. A thick, sweet coating on top helped me crunch my way through the muffin. I do like a bit of sweetness with my muffins, but I found the sugary topping to be overwhelming at times. So, I simply brushed off the excess and was satisfied with the result.

The chocolate chips in my muffin also seemed a bit sparse- but the chocolate that I did taste was flavorful and seemed balanced with the overall flavor of the muffin.

Thanks to Bread of Life for the muffins. This is a great gluten free product from a great start-up that I am happy to support. Look for more muffin, cookie, and bread reviews this month from Bread of Life. You’ll be in for a treat!

PROS: soft, moist, flavorful, do not taste gluten free! Individually packaged for freshness, high quality ingredients

CONS: crunchy sweet topping may be overwhelming,

Rating: 5 stars
