One of the things I thought I might do as I wander my new gluten-free path is review the GF products I try and let you know whether or not you should bother spending the additional cash for something that may just taste like sawdust. To that end I present my first GF review:
Week three of the no gluten diet started with a day where I was tormented by a box of double chocolate donuts at the office. All day long when I went to get coffee I could smell pure chocolate rising out of the box. All day long I watched the number of gooey donuts decrease. All day long I felt irritated that most gooey chocolate treats are made with wheat and that even chocolate itself often has barely malt in it.
That irritation ended today.
Today I made Namaste gluten-free brownies and smothered them in Nutella.
I have eaten three so far, the kids love them, and my girlfriends enjoyed them too. They aren’t traditional brownies with chocolate frosting, but they are good enough to be something delicious on their own instead of a poor replacement!
So! Namaste gluten-free brownies are a go for this gluten free newbie and are good enough to offer to guests without apology for their lack of traditional ingredients.
*Disclosure: I am not paid by Namaste to review their brownie mix but the above link is my Amazon affiliate link so I will get a small kickback if you feel the sudden desire to order 6 bags of brownie mix from my website right now.
