Good Cookies, Dense Cake
The problem was that everything which ought to have been crunchy turned out chewy instead. No doubt the charcoal biscuits are lemon-y enough, and I’m quite certain the digestive benefits of charcoal biscuits in general are still there – but the crunch I expected is nowhere to be found, and no amount of fiddling with the mix seems to work.
Therefore, let me advise that it’s probably better to use this mix for cakes and pan breads rather than for biscuits (cookies) – or perhaps it was just my misfortune, I can’t really say.
Dense! But a lifesaver for gluten, sugar and dairy free people
I made cookies and boy are they dense. I don’t know how a cake would turn out with this mix…
If I tell myself that these cookies are more like a biscotti, then they’re absolutely delicious gluten free biscottis! The taste is great, I would just like a way to make the cookies a little more moist (so if Cravings Place or anyone else has suggestions, let me know!).
I cannot have dairy, so I used coconut milk and coconut oil. It gives the cookies a bit of coconut flavor, and I used some smashed up bits of a stevia-sweetened chocolate bar,Dante Confections – 98% Cocoa Stevia Chocolate Bar: 8 Bars, so I could have chocolate chunk cookies.
I would love to see a gluten, sugar, dairy free BROWNIE mix! Seems like The Cravings Place has a great thing going with the mixes (my experiments from making brownies from scratch based on internet recipes have failed horribly), so if they could expand their product line, I would/will be a faithful customer for sure!
Not so great
Best multi-allergy free cake & cookie mix
The cake does come out denser than “normal” cake, and can be more crumbly/dry. The taste, however, is amazing. I have made the vanilla, ginger spice, and orange cakes/cupcakes. Fooled a bunch of coworkers once, they were so delicious!
I use this mix to make a very important traditional Christmas cake, so I no longer feel left out during the holidays (since I’m the only person in the family with food problems). I am going to experiment with making other traditional holiday cookies with this mix.
I haven’t made a bad cookie yet, using the recipes on the bag. I like crunchy cookies, but have not figured out how to get them crunchy instead of chewy. If you like moist, chewy cookies, then this is definitely the mix for you!
In fact, I can’t keep my husband (no food issues) out of the cakes and cookies I make from this mix.
