While my boys and I are not gluten-free, I do try to minimize the wheat in our diet a bit just to ensure that we’re getting a good balance of foods. But a gluten-free lifestyle is something that’s much more than just a fad for many Canadians. In fact, my little niece couldn’t eat wheat for years because it aggravated her eczema, so I always made sure to keep some gluten-free treats in the house.
Now, Sobeys is making it easier than ever for those that are living gluten-free to indulge in the foods they love with a fabulous new line of Compliments Gluten-Free products! From cake mixes and flour to ready-made muffins, this line is certified gluten-free by the Canadian Celiac Association endorsed Gluten-Free Certification Program and taste completely delicious! I received an assortment of products to try and I couldn’t wait to dig in.
One of the things I love most about this line from Sobeys is that it includes ready-made products. My boys and I devoured a package of Compliments Gluten-Free Mini Chocolate Brownies in one sitting; they were moist, tender and so delicious! We also received a package of Moist Quinoa Muffins that made a great gluten-free breakfast or snack.
The Sobeys Compliments Gluten-Free line also includes a variety of cake, cookie, muffin and pancake mixes perfect for whipping up a quick gluten-free treat. I decided to use the chocolate cake mix to make a gluten-free version of one of my very favourite indulgences: cake mix cookies!
Gluten-Free Cake Mix Cookies
- 1 box Compliments Gluten-Free Cake Mix
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 374 degrees.
Combine cake mix, melted butter and egg in large bowl until well mixed.
Stir in sour cream until fully combined.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until just set.
Place on wire racks to cool. Store in tightly covered container.
These cookies are moist and tender, but so quick to make. Best of all, they’re easy to customize since you can use any flavour of cake mix to make them! I loved how easy it was to make a gluten-free treat with these mixes.
But my favourite product was the Compliments Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour Blend. It can be used just like regular flour and produces results that are absolutely delicious! The best thing about this flour blend is that it’s so versatile. I can use it to make a birthday cake for a gluten-free friend or whip up batter for homemade fish and chips to serve at a party!
