Aldi has come a long way in the past year when it comes to gluten-free specialty products. Their store brand, Live Gfree, has become a permanent fixture in the stores with a diverse product line. When I ran into Aldi last week to pick up a loaf of the Live Gfree White Bread, I spotted the Live Gfree Pancakes for the first time. I picked up a box of the Homestyle and Blueberry varieties.
The pancakes can be found in the frozen aisle close to the other breakfast food items. Each box contains 12 pancakes (4 servings).
Homestyle Ingredients: Water, white rice flour, soy flour, sugar, vegetable oil (soybean), tapioca starch, yellow corn flour, dextrose, salt, baking powder (sodium acid and pyrophosphate, sodium bicarbonate, corn starch and mono calcium phosphate), soy lecithin.
Blueberry Ingredients: Water, white rice flour, soy flour, sugar, vegetable oil (soybean and/or canola), tapioca starch, yellow corn flour, dextrose, salt, baking powder (sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium bicarbonate, corn starch and monocalcium phosphate), blueberries, soy lecithin, fructose, fruit juices (elderberry, watermelon and huito), natural flavor.
I was excited to have pancakes after my run on Saturday and even more excited that they took only 1-2 minutes to heat up and serve. I topped mine with fresh blueberries and maple syrup and then dug in. I thoroughly enjoyed these pancakes. The taste and texture is very close to homemade, but a lot easier. These pancakes cost under $4/box, though I am having a problem remembering for sure if they are $2.99 or $3.99. Jon agreed that these pancakes are amazing and wants me to make sure we are stocked with them all of the time. I reminded him he has a car and is able to go to Aldi whenever he pleases.
Aldi has a number of other products that are naturally gluten-free. To see where the closest Aldi to you is, check the store locator on the website. Have you tried the Live Gfree Pancakes? What do you think?
