Way back when I started blogging five years ago, there were a few key gluten free bloggers that really helped when I was starting out. I learned a lot from these bloggers and got to be part of a great community.
One of the women who was so welcoming was Jules of gfJules. (She is no longer involved with her former company, so be sure to look for her picture on any products you are planning to get. That will guarantee they are from Jules, herself.)
Jules has been a pillar of the gluten free community, to say the least. She is one of the main people responsible from getting our new labeling law by helping to create 1 in 133. And so many more things on top of selling amazing gluten free products so we can eat fabulous baked goods again.
The reason for this post today is to inform you about her new company, gfJules. She still sells all of her wonderful products, as well as has lots and lots of great recipes on her site. So, please don’t buy from that “other” company that is still allowed to use her name. She isn’t a part of it any more. But they can’t use her picture. So, always look for her picture on the box.
Jules was kind enough to let me try a couple of her mixes, Sugar Cookie and Graham Cracker/Gingerbread.
Along with this review, we are also having a giveaway of one box of each of these mixes. There will be two winners. One for each of these mixes. You can enter below with the rafflecopter thing. (I hope it works this time.)
Also, check out Jules on her social media. Lots of great info, recipes and news.
Now, on to the review…um…Awesome!
Seriously, I love both of these because they are really simple to make and taste pretty spot on to the traditional gluten version.
AND, I was able to make both of them without eggs, making them vegan, too. If that’s what you want.
The sugar cookie mix can use an egg substitute, which I used my flax egg. That’s the reason for the little flecks in the pictures.
And the gingerbread cookies don’t require egg at all.
In addition, you can make the gingerbread either thin and crunchy like regular gingerbread cookies. Or you can make it fat and cakey, like LM likes it. Either way, it tastes like gingerbread.
Also, as you can see, the sugar cookies are versatile. I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to squish them down or leave them as balls, and they would flatten out. So, I tried both. And they both turned out fine. (Obviously, the balls stayed like balls. But cute little balls.)
In addition, both mixes passed the LM test, which is saying a lot.
So, that’s enough from me. Enter below as many times as you can. And here’s hoping you win. This contest goes from now until 12/14/14, at which point, I will pick the winners and let you know. Good luck!
