Gluten Free Review: Cherrybrook Kitchen’s Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix

 photo gfcherrybrookpancakemix_zpsce20d0cc.pngI was just browsing the gluten free section of the grocery store a few weeks ago, fully intending not to buy anything, when I spotted several of these Cherrybrook Kitchen gluten free mixes for half off – who could resist?

Price: $5.00 at Kroger – 1/5 (it only makes 9 waffles, and that’s a steep price for a waffle)

Prep/cooking time: 5-10 minutes – 5/5 (same time as a regular mix would take to whip up)

Taste: soft, sweet, and crisp – 4/5 (I probably wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between this waffle and one with gluten – one point off for not being able to freeze them for later)

Husband’s Approval: 4/5 (he agreed that they smelled & tasted great, but he noted a slight gluten-free after taste that I missed)
