Recently, I received this beautiful looking parcel from the guys over at Delicious Alchemy to try out some of their 'gluten free goodies'. Although I don't require a gluten free diet, I was really intrigued to give these a go to see how they'd compare to ordinary alternatives.
So, if you haven't come across Delicious Alchemy before, they are a Sheffield based producer of mixtures enabling people to make fuss and gluten free treats.In my parcel, I received a Fruity Muesli, Chocolate Brownie mix and Oaty Cookie mix which is pictured below. All of these packets are dairy free too.
I decided to make the Oaty Cookies straight away as they sounded amazing.
The instructions come printed on the side of the packet and a very easy to follow. They only contain a few steps so anybody will be able to make these!
As you may have noticed, I did use butter which obviously means the cookies are no longer dairy free. The instructions do state that a dairy free alternative to butter can be used and I'm sure they will turn out equally as good.
I was so pleased with how my Oaty Cookies were. The smell was incredible and they tasted even better. They had a lovely crisp when you break or bite into them which then crumbles in your mouth as you eat them. Wow. Definitely a winner in my eyes.
Next up was the Chocolate Brownie Mix. I absolutely love chocolate brownies. Again, I followed the instructions on the side of the packet. All very simple and straight forward.
I didn't really have any trays big enough for the brownie, so used what I had. It was a little deeper than I'd wanted but went with it anyway. I just thought it'd need a bit longer to bake which was fine.
Once out of the oven, the brownie looked fantastic as you'll see above. But... I was a little impatient and couldn't wait to dive in, so I took it out of the tray before it had cooled. Big mistake.
If you're looking for some gluten free treats to try, I'd definitely recommend trying Delicious Alchemy. Baking is all part of the fun too.
As I mentioned earlier, I also got to try some of the Muesli which has been amazing for my breakfast. I usually have Special K but this has been a lovely alternative and fills me up until mid-morning.
