This review is long overdue. Enjoylife Foods sent me samples of their new line of Ancient Grain baking mixes many many moons ago. As an avid Enjoylife fan and partner I can assure you that my crazy, hectic life is the culprit and not a subpar product on the part of Enjoylife. In fact, I have a batch of Ancient Grain Brownies in my convection oven as I type.
It’s Sunday and after a super long and productive day, I was craving something chocolate. Mentally I was going to whip up a one bowl chocolate cake but upon opening my pantry, I spotted the brownie box and without a second guess whipped out a glass baking dish, sprayed it with baking spray and was dumping the mix into a bowl.
As second nature as it is for me to bake from scratch, some days, a mix is really all I can muster. It’s times like these that make Enjoylife’s new mixes so wonderful. Like every other Enjoylife product, the brownie mix is free of the three most common food allergens : milk, soy, nut, and of course gluten/wheat. All you need to add is water and oil, stir, pour, and bake. Literally taking less than two minutes from bowl to pan. I mean how on earth can you beat that.
I was sold on the brownies when I first tried them. They are super moist. Uber chocolatey, rich, decadent and contain a healthy dose of added probiotics and 5 grams of protein per serving. Now you can feel sinless while enjoying a normally sinful dessert. With this batch, I added my own cup of chopped pecans and of course will serve with a scoop of butter pecan ice cream. Because well, I want my brownie and ice cream too.
Head over to Enjoylife Foods online to purchase a few boxes of this Amazing brownie mix and a few others while you are at it. The Ancient Grain line comes with: Muffin Mix, All Purpose Flour, Pancake/Waffle/ and Pizza Crust.
