Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Pancake and Waffle Mix

Trader Joe’s is one of my favorite places to shop living in NY. So when I found out they made their own gluten-free pancake mix, I have to try it. My favorite mix until now has been Cherrybrook Farms Gluten-Free Dreams pancake mix and TJ’s mix holds up to the taste and texture of the more expensive Cherrybrook brand.
Sunday pancake breakfasts are an elaborate occasion at my house normally reserved for visit family/friends and birthdays. It is a pain to make two versions of pancakes and keep everything segregated so no wheat contamination could occur.
This Sunday, our friends Alex and Urska (sorry I can’t really spell your name) were in from D.C and we invited our friends Web and Anthony over as well. I had lots of people to experiment on my favorite being Anthony who is an amazing baker.
Both Web and Alex ate my pancakes and said they were good. When the gluten eating masses approve they must be good.
Now, if you like to super fluffy cake-like pancakes, this mix is not for you. Bob’s Red Mill has fluffier spongier pancakes. I prefer mine thinner and half way between crepe and a pancake.Plus you can’t beat the price at $2.99 a bag. Similar mixes are at least $4 and sometimes as much as $6.

Kudos, Trader Joe’s! Another great product for the allergy challenged masses.

    I am sad to say this product is no longer on the market. When I asked Trader Joe’s about this, they were not happy either. Apparently, they are looking for another manufacturer at this time to possibly start producing this product again. At the time I spoke to them last week, there was no future date of the product’s return. Sad!
