Namaste Foods GF Muffin Mix

I picked up a bag of Namaste Foods Gluten Free Muffin Mix at the grocery store last week.  I have seen the mixes before but never grabbed one.  This trip I had a coupon so I went for it!  During play time this morning I was getting hungry and decided to whip up a batch.  Which was actually pretty easy even with twins crawling all over the place.

The instructions are super easy and all you need is 2 eggs, 1/4 cup oil and 1 cup water.  There are also instructions on the bag for adding fruit and various other things.

Here is what I added to the mix: 3/4 cup frozen blueberries, 1 tbsp ground chia seeds, 3/4 cup / 1/4 cup apple juice subbed for 1 cup of water.  I also made a brown sugar crumble topping with 1 tbsp butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1 tbsp GF flour mixed together.  Add the crumble half way through the cooking process.


RESULT: moist, tasty muffins!  The texture was good and they had a good flavor.  They were not too sweet so the crumble topping helped.  I plan to freeze half for a later GF muffin craving.   The nice thing about this product is that it is a good base, you could add your favorite fruit and nuts to make almost any type of muffin.  One bag only makes 12 muffins and it is over $4.50 a bag without a coupon.  It is a good mix to keep in my pantry for special breakfasts but a little pricey for frequent use.

  1. I haven't tried the muffin mix but I know the Namaste chocolate and spice cake mixes are very good. I don't buy them very often but they are very close to "regular" cake.
