Product Review: Arrowhead Mills Wild Rice Gluten Free Pancake Mix- organic ingredients/ whole grain/ dairy free
Posted on | May 31, 2008 | 2 Comments
I picked up this 32 ounce Arrowhead Mills gluten free pancake mix at my local grocery store on sale for a mere $1.37. I am a big pancake fan, and hoped these would be a tasty way to start my weekend.
This gluten free pancake mix was fairly easy to mix by hand and it spread fairly easy on my griddle. I did have to add quite a few ingredients- egg, oil, honey, soymilk, and sea salt. I was thrilled to see that they seemed to cook well with no telltale gluten free mush in the middle. The one thing I can’t stand is mushy, mealy gluten free pancakes. Eww.
I was right, there was no mealy, mushy center. However, it was almost too cooked, despite the fact they were not overdone. My pancakes were dense, dry, and required a healthy amount of butter and maple syrup to make them taste better.
The flavor of these gluten free pancakes reminded me of a nutty, whole grain, “healthy’ version of my favorite breakfast food. The wild rice base does have a nice flavor, but the dry, dense texture and consistency overshadow the flavor.
PROS: easy to prepare, wholesome flavor, 6 grams of protein
CONS: dry, dense, not your standard fluffy pancake
Rating: 2 stars
