Arrowhead Mills is part of the Hain-Celestial Group and has a whole line of gluten-free products. The line includes baking mixes, flours, beans, grains, rice, nut butters & seeds. While browsing around the Arrowhead Mills site today, I happened upon a recipe too interesting not to try out. The recipe is for Southwestern Roasted Poblano & Ham Pudding. Strange, huh? I think it sounds really good! Hain-Celestial has a gluten-free site called Gluten-Free Choices that is similar to General Mill’s Live Gluten Freely. A little more about Arrowhead Mills from their site:

Yesterday I wanted to give the kids an activity to do, so I suggested making the Bake with Me Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes. Jon did all of the mixing and pouring of the batter. He takes a lot of pride in his work. He reminds me a lot of myself at this age. I love the instructions on the back of the box.
The liners came with the mix and had balloons on them!! They are super cute!
All ready to go into the oven.
Done! Jon did really well at sticking the toothpick in to check the cupcakes. He is a great baker!
Hannah made the icing/frosting. It was actually more like a glaze. To be completely honest, I was being a bit lazy. It was late & I was tired & hot, so instead of getting the mixer back out, we whipped up a quick icing glaze. I used powdered sugar, Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa and Silk Pure Almond Milk. I didn’t measure, I just dumped into a bowl and judged the amounts based on consistency and taste. Hannah did the drizzling of the icing.
These cupcakes were really good! Hannah’s first word was “heaven” after she took a bite. I have to agree! These were super chocolatey! Chocolate chips would be an awesome addition to the frosting, as suggested on the box, but I had already eaten the ones sent with this mix! LOL! Can’t keep me away from chocolate for too long! Jon liked the cupcakes, too. He added some peanut butter cup icing to his. That is a teenage boy for you!
