Better Batter has a wonderful line of gluten-free baking mixes. Better Batter Flour was created by Naomi Poe in 2006 after both her her children and husband were found to have gluten sensitivity. Naomi was tired of paying too much for baking mixes only to have them taste odd. She took matters into her own hands and her friend liked her flour mix so much that she offered to buy it and Better batter was born!

Naomi and the Staff
Better Batter was kind enough to send us some complimentary samples of their products. We received the Fudge Brownie Mix, Flour Mix and Pancake & Biscuit Mix.
I made the Brownie Mix first. I couldn’t not keep my hands off of these brownies. Perhaps I was thinking carb loading for my marathon? I don’t know, but I had to send some into Aaron’s gluten-free friends at work in order to keep the brownie eating in check. There are directions on the box to use 2 or 3 eggs depending on if you like your brownies fudgy or cakey. I am a fudgey brownie gal, so I only used 2 eggs. Even my gluten eater, Hannah, loved these! A+++
I used some of the flour mix to make my infamous Pistachio Cheesecake. I served this to my family at our mother’s day function to rave reviews. There was very little left over and Jon fought Lindsey for the few remaining pieces. **The crust crumbling was due to my not being able to get a picture until most of the pieces were gone & therefore attacked.
The pancake & biscuit mix is a huge hit in our house. Jon loves to eat pancakes before school, so we make a batch on the weekend and then freeze so he can have a quick breakfast that he can make all by himself in the morning. He usually tops with Aunt Jemima, but always has to ask for some kind of chip (butterscotch seems to be a favorite) and whipped cream. I try to reserve those for special occasions, much to Jon’s dismay.
Better Batter products are all free of gluten, dairy, egg, soy, peanut, sesame, seafood (fish and shellfish), GMO. Better Batter can be ordered online at the Better Batter site, Amazon.com or found in stores across the country. I was pleased to see that my Whole Foods was carrying Better Batter the last time I was there. If you are unsure what to make with your Better Batter, make sure to check out the recipes on the website.
