Review: Gluten-Free Pantry’s Chocolate Truffle Brownie Mix

As a huge fan of Gluten-Free Pantry’s products, I was excited to try out this mix. It’s been sitting on my shelf for a while because I’ve been making the less expensive Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Brownie Mix instead. But, I have to admit, this wasn’t the best gluten free brownie mix that I’ve ever had. It was dry in the middle and really stuck to my greased pan. I like my brownies moist and a little gooey in the middle, which this didn’t have at all.

I added some chopped nuts, to see if it helped with the texture, which it really did.

The mix came with chocolate chips in it, but they didn’t melt when baked. They also helped with the texture, but it seems weird that they didn’t melt more than they did.

I personally would recommend the Trader Joe's Gluten-Free Brownie Mix over this one. This mix was still good, just not the best I’ve ever had.

Try making the TJs brownies using cooled, melted butter in place of the oil and a good handful of chocolate chips. Also put them in the freezer for an hour or so once they have cooled slightly. Delicious!

That sounds wonderful! I will try that out next time I make some. Thanks for the suggestion! I'm interested in seeing how that changes the mix.

I think next time I make this GF Pantry mix, I'll throw in a little sour cream and chocolate pudding to make it more moist.

I love the Gluten-Free Pantry's chocolate truffle brownie mix. I've found you need to carefully watch the cook time, though. If you leave them even a little too long, they tend to dry out and get hard.

Unfortunately, there are no Trader Joe's in my area. I'd love to try their mix.
