Product review: Namaste baking mixes
I picked up 2 Namaste brand baking mixes to try, and then compare to homemade versions. First up: Namaste brownies. Very good, rich, chocolatey. A different texture, but not unpleasant.
This morning, I baked a batch of muffins using their muffin/scone mix. DD can't have much dairy, so muffins were selected. I did add some fzn blueberries (one of the few fruits she can have) and some dried orange peel. While I didn't personally sample these, DD reports that they are very good. Again, a different texture more of a scone-muffin than muffin, but very good.
I need to discover and possibly tweak homemade versions. These mixes, while very good, are also very expensive. Cheaper than buying premade items, but still expensive.
