I applied through Mom’s Ambassador to try this product with my mom group and review it on my blog.  I was so happy to be selected to review Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Muffin Mix.

Making muffins is a huge deal in our house.  S loves them and would choose them every time over cupcakes or donuts.  I had B cook a couple different batches of muffins.  He made berry muffins (which included strawberries and raspberries) and banana muffins.  The berry muffins looked fantastic.  When B took them out of the oven they looked perfect.  About two minutes later the muffins had completely deflated.  S asked what happened to them and I was convinced that B did not make the muffins correctly.  We decided to try them anyways.  S and I did not like them.  The outside was okay, not good, but okay.  The inside was super moist and I could not tell if it was from the berries or if it had not fully cooked.

The second batch of muffins was banana.  We make banana bread muffins all the time so there is no way we could mess these up.  I thought maybe B didn’t let them cook long enough the first time so I took over the cooking duties.  I set the timer and waited.  After the timer went off I checked the muffins with a toothpick and it came out clean.  I was worried they were going to be burnt on the bottom so I did not hesitate taking them out.  The muffins looked great and I could not wait to taste them.  I left them to cool and when I came back to check on them they had deflated.

I have no idea what is wrong, maybe it is the muffin mix.  I have never baked something that was intentionally gluten-free.  Maybe it is missing the “glue” that holds it together and causes it to bake like regular muffins.  I tried the muffins anyways and they seemed burnt on the outside and under baked in the middle.  I decided since I couldn’t get them to cook correctly, I would just hand out muffin mix to the moms and let them go home and try their own experiments.

I received so much muffin mix that I sent everyone home with a box of mix which contained four packages of muffin mix.  I also sent everyone home with $1 off coupons for Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Baking Mixes.  I am looking forward to trying the Brownie and Chocolate Chip Cookie mix.  My package included: 6 boxes of muffin mix (Each box contained 4 individual muffin mixes), a cookbook and $1 off coupons.  That is 24 individual muffin mixes and each mix makes 12 large muffins.  That is 288 muffins.  When S saw all the mix he said I hope it lasts us a month.  We laughed because we said it would last us as least 12-18 months if not longer.

I am going to try the muffin mix one more time.  If it comes out good, then maybe B got the mixing aspect wrong.  If they come out deflated, burnt on the outside and under baked on the inside then I am chalking it up to being a gluten-free mix.  What else could it be?
