Christmas is always my favorite time of year! Being able to give gifts, putting up the Christmas tree, making all the Christmas themed foods. But one thing I've never done before is make a gingerbread house! Since going gluten-free, I thought I would never be able to make a gingerbread house again. That's why I was very excited to come across gfJules flours and to see she had a gluten-free gingerbread mix available! Keep in mind that this was my first gingerbread house ever so I'm not to proud of my work. Lol, the actual gingerbread tasted great though and I would really recommend it to anyone looking to make a gingerbread house this Christmas. Check out my full review and giveaway below!
How my first attempt at a gingerbread house went:
If you're looking at my gingerbread house and thinking it doesn't look the best, you're pretty right. Haha but I definitely wouldn't blame it on the flour rather than the person who used it (me). I actually had a lot of fun making this for the first time even though it doesn't look like a master piece! The instructions for the recipe was extremely easy and the best part was there was TONS of dough left over afterwards. The taste and texture was great plus it was really no different than making any normal gingerbread house. I haven't tried any gluten-free gingerbread flours in the past but I can definitely say that gfJules' flours are great!
The other gfJules products I tried:
Another gfJules mix I tried was the gluten-free pancake and waffle mix! I decided to make gluten-free pancakes with the mix while adding in some Enjoy Life chocolate chips to sweeten it up a bit. They were extremely good and better than most gluten-free pancakes I've tried! I thought the texture was great and obviously the taste was great too since I added chocolate. (Chocolate makes everything better) Of the 2 mixes I tried, I probably enjoyed the pancakes the most. I'm not a huge fan of gingerbread but I am definitely a fan of pancakes and would really recommend these!
My favorite things about these mixes:
- They are extremely easy to use and have very easy instructions that even a kid could do!
- They are all gluten-free and have multiple uses besides just one!
- The texture for both the gingerbread house and pancakes were great!
- The taste for the gingerbread house was amazing and I honestly wouldn't know it's gluten-free.
- All the flours are made by one of my favorite people, Jules Shepard, and is one of my favorites!
