Review: Pamela’s Oatmeal Cookie Mix

I had the opportunity to sample a new cookie mix from Pamela’s Products recently and I am thrilled to share my thoughts about it.  Pamela’s recently debuted an Oatmeal Cookie Mix that is not only certified gluten-free, but dairy-free, too.

Ingredients:
Gluten-free Oats, Evaporated Cane Sugar, Brown Rice Flour, Brown Sugar, Tapioca Starch, Potato Starch, Sorghum Flour, White Rice Flour, Sweet Rice Flour, Spices, Grainless & Aluminum-Free Baking Powder (Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Potato Starch), Sea Salt, Baking Soda, Natural Vanilla Flavor, Guar Gum.

I followed the directions on the back for the cookie bars, as opposed to cookies.  I chose to add peanut butter baking chips, as I knew that was a sure fire way to get Jon to eat the bars, though I would have preferred raisins.  The mix was simple to put together by softening the butter with the mixer and then adding the mix, egg and mix-ins.  Mix-ins can be anything from dried fruit to nuts, coconut or baking chips.  After the ingredients were well blended, I pressed the batter into an 8 x 8 parchment lined pan.

I baked the bars for 28 minutes in a 350 degree oven, let them cool for a while and then cut them while they were still warm.

The mix produced a wonderfully moist and flavorful Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie bar!  I love the combination of flavors and can’t wait to share them with a few gluten-free friends tomorrow.  While the mix is free of dairy, the bars as I prepared them are not, though they could be made that way by using dairy-free margarine and baking chips or subbing dried fruit for the chips.

    I just tried this mix a few weeks ago. I also elected to make the bars and added dried cherries to the mix. Everyone at my bookclub LOVED them! The mix was super fast and easy to make. Another great mix from Pamela’s (white cake mix and corn muffin mix are already staples for me)!
