Honest reviews of gluten free products for a tastier life

gluten free bread slice

It has been a rough month- I have been sick a whopping three times, which has made it difficult to try new gluten free products. I have had no energy, and nothing seems to taste good. As a result, I have a pantry full of gluten free bread mixes waiting patiently to be prepared and appreciated. It looks like my bread reviews will spill over into March! My March gluten free product give-away will still go on as planned though. Check back on March 1st to enter!

I picked up this large 35.5 ounce bag of Kinnikinnick Kinni-Kwik Bread and Bun mix for $5.79, which was enough to make a dozen dinner rolls and a large yummy loaf of gluten free bread.

This bread mix cannot be easier to prepare! Just add water, milk, or soy milk, mix for 3 minutes with an electric mixer, and it’s ready for the oven. No rise time necessary! Seriously, it is foolproof, even for me! The dough was a touchy sticky to work with, but a wet spatula easily smoothed the top of the bread dough.

I baked the bread for 50 minutes, and it came out of the oven looking golden and gorgeous! I couldn’t wait to try a piece warm with my favorite peanut butter. This gluten free bread is very, very soft, with a slightly crunchy crust with a somewhat spongy/eggy consistency. Because of the nooks and crannies, it had a somewhat rough texture. However, because this gluten free bread is so soft, it actually tasted light and smooth. I was surprised, and also pleased to discover virtually no crumbling when sliced or eaten.

This bread really tasted great. The flavor seemed quite mild and would pair up with any sandwich toppings your heart desires. I did not notice an aftertaste, either.

gluten free dinner rolls

Because the bread turned out so well, I was anxious to try the bun, or dinner roll version. Batter preparation was exactly the same, and I used my favorite scoop to fill greased muffin tins. I smoothed the top of the buns with my fingers dipped in water and popped them into the oven. A mere 25 minutes later they were hot and on the dinner table. The texture and flavor was the same as the loaf prep. However, my rolls rose unevenly, causing them to have a bumpy, lumpy appearance. My gluten consuming family provided mixed reviews. My husband like them but my kids said they tasted “different,” and refused to eat them after the first bite. Overall, I liked this mix and would definitely buy it again.

PROS: soft, fluffy bread, looks great, super easy prep, great price

CONS: a bit spongy, buns rise unevenly

Rating: 4 stars

    Please advise me if you sell this direct, and if so what is the cost and how do I go about ordering?
    If you have stores or source in Manitoba, particularly near Selkirk or Winnipeg, please let me know who they are so I can get some.

    Seems the company has discontinued this item…? Do you know if this is temporary? I have been using this product for about a month, and I like it! If they aren’t going to be making it anymore, do you know of a product that is close in taste/texture that is fairly easy to prepare?

    I use this for a friend of mine and am not very into the Gluten Free scene! So, thank you for your help!

    Kinnikinnick changed the packaging and my local Harmons grocery store carries it as well. After a quick online search, carries it online:

    I’ll try and change the purchasing link soon, once I have the chance to search further and price compare. I try and post the best price I can find. Best wishes!
