Whether you’re prepping for the Super Bowl or entertaining throughout the year, Simple Mills offers a better for you snacking option.
I’m not huge into the Super Bowl myself, except for watching the commercials and chowing down on good food while spending time with family. Any excuse to eat and chat right? This weekend also gives me the excuse to make fun foods to impress. We tried out the Simple Mills baking mixes this week, before the big game, to see if it was something we could serve.
The Vanilla Cupcake and Cake Mix was our first try. Made with Almond flour, coconut flour, and coconut sugar these cupcakes are Gluten free, Paleo Friendly, and contain less than half the sugar and carbs of leading baking mixes. It sounds like a fantastic option to please a myriad of party guests to me.
Honest thoughts – I didn’t particularly care for the cupcakes. I can’t quite describe it, but to me, there just wasn’t much vanilla cupcake taste to these. It felt more like a muffin. The kids, on the other hand, were split half and half. Two of the kids enjoyed the whole cupcake, while 2 preferred eating the frosting off the top. I used the Simple Mills frosting on these cupcakes and that is a whole different story! We loved this frosting! There was no difference in taste with this frosting then the brands I normally buy, but like the cake mix, it contains half the sugar and carbs of leading frosting brands.
Next up to try was the Simple Mills Artisan Bread. Naturally gluten-free and paleo friendly, the bread also contains less than half the sugar and carbs of other leading brands. Are you seeing a trend?
I actually really liked the bread. The kids weren’t big fans, but I could snack on this all day long with the right dip. I followed the directions for making the flat bread, and shaped them into footballs. Served up with my Baked Spinach and Artichoke Dip and I couldn’t stop eating it. You’re football fans will get a kick out of this better for you bread.
