Maple Grove Farms Gluten Free Pancake & Waffle Mix Review

*See April 2015 update below original post regarding new processing regulations that may affect this product being allergy-friendly.*

A friend of mine from work bought me a gluten-free goodie I’ve never tried, Maple Grove Farms All Natural Gluten-Free Pancake & Waffle Mix.

Although this brand makes other wheat pancake varieties, this box had a consumer alert that said, “Manufactured on dedicated Gluten-Free equipment in a Gluten-Free room.  Manufactured in a facility that processes Dairy Products, Egg Powder, Soy, and Wheat.”

Last night, I made breakfast for dinner and we tried out the new pancake mix.  I made the recipe that includes the whole box of pancake mix as I always make quite a few and then freeze the leftovers to cut down on my time in the kitchen for future meals.  My only change was to add a few chocolate chips and a little cinnamon.

These pancakes turned out great!  They were thick (I did add a little extra milk than the recipe called for to thin out the batter) and fluffy and reminded me a great deal of the gluten-filled pancakes of my childhood.  In fact, my only complaint about these pancakes is how filling they were.  Just two pancakes and I was very full…not the typical effect of eating my usual thin and corn-based gluten-free pancakes.  The whole family enjoyed the meal but made the comment that these pancakes were particularly filling.

Bottom line…I would probably buy Maple Grove Farms Gluten-Free Pancake & Waffle Mix a couple of times a year and would be comfortable serving it up to the whole family!

Important April 2015 update regarding new processing regulations that may affect this product being allergy-friendly.*

One of my readers, Marie, contacted Maple Grove Farms in November 2014 (almost 3 years after the original post went live) and discovered the following:

“All of their [Maple Grove] maple syrups and flavored syrups are made in a tree nut and peanut free facility. They do process some poppy seed and sesame seed in the facility, so if you’re allergic to those, it might be better to avoid. They say that their gluten free pancake mixes are processed elsewhere and are at risk for peanut/tree nut cross-contamination, but their wheat/gluten pancake mixes are safe and made in the same facility as their syrups.”

Thank you, Marie, for the update!
