Bob's Red Mill
Bob's Red Mill is my favorite overall company for GF products. Bob has all types of flour, gluten free oats, and baking mixes galore. His products are available all over the place making them not only good, but very convenient. And he looks so nice, how could you not love Bob?
You may have noticed that I use Bob's All Purpose GF Flour Mix for most of my baking. It has done pretty well by me thus far, but I think I'm just about ready to branch into trying my own flour mixes. For Christmas this year I have asked my mom to get me all the gluten free flours I'm too cheap to buy myself - which is basically all of them except rice flour. I finally want to try baking with almond, coconut, millet, amaranth, quinoa, teff, etc. flours. Bob has them all. I'm very excited.
Bob also has gluten free oats for my winter breakfasts. In case you don't know, oats in of themselves are considered safe for people with celiac to eat, but because they are usually grown on the same fields as wheat in alternating seasons, they are deemed too cross contaminated to eat. Bob gets his from fields really far away from wheat.
And now for the mixes. Sometimes you want homemade products but don't know exactly how to make them. Bob makes it easy with his gluten free pancake, biscuit, bread, corn bread, brownie, cookie, cake, and pizza dough mixes. I've tried several of them and they are all really good.
So head on over to Whole Foods or your local health food store and stock up on Bob's. Then let me know which your favorite is.
