Pamela's Mix
0

18 posts in this topic

Could someone please tell me what the ingredients are in Pamela's gluten-free flour mix. Also what's your favorite premade-store bought flour mix? Our store only sells Bob's and Arrowhead Mills. I have only tried Bob's. I normally make up my own mixes. I see so many recipes for Pamela's. Just wondering...Thanks so much for your reply! :)

If you start using Pamela's, there is a learning curve, especially when it comes to adding fats. I've learned that if I decrease the amt of fat added (oil, butter, etc...) by 2/3, the recipe is usually perfect. It is really forgiving when it comes to baked goods. It does NOT work well for pie crusts though--but I didn't decrease the butter in my recipe, maybe I'll have to retry that, imagine, a semi-healthy piecrust..... :huh:

Anyway, I love it and I use it all the time. I tried to recreate the mix and I came pretty close, but not close enough. My mix is PERFECT for Lorka's flax bread though, so that was worth all the trouble!! ;)

If you find that you do like it, then buy it in bulk from Amazon. Sign up for their "subscribe and save program" and get an extra 15 percent off and free shipping off of each shipment. The program is like putting in a standing order, but you can cancel at anytime, even after the first shipment. It's free shipping even if the order isn't $25 (and they ship immediately, unlike the other free shipping program where they sit on the order for awhile <_< ) It also tells you that it's about to ship so you can delay an order if your not ready for it yet. I would try a small bag purchased locally first though, just to make sure you like it.

I also tried a "Pamela's knock-off" recipe that was pretty good but Amazon's bulk/subscribe&save program ended up being cheaper for me and I don't have to keep so many ingredients in my house.

I'm a HUGE Pamela's fan. Also love their wheat-free/gluten-free bread (and yes, I get that through the same program). I use it for bread, dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, and pizza crusts.

I made pie crusts with Pamela's that I thought turned out well and tasted as good as the "real thing".

(I don't care for the bread, however, too sweet for me. )

I have only been at the for about 6 months and Pamela's is the only mix I have used and I love it and so does my family. (which are not gluten free) The first time I made the pancakes I had to make a double patch and my daughter said that the chocolate chip cookies were the best she has had. I use it for coating when we made orange chicken and with my bread crumbs when making pork cutlets. The scones on the back of the bag are to die for I use the for strawberry shortcake. Thanks to the help of the wonder people on the site and Pamela's chocolate cake mix I had the best bithday cake ever this year. As you can tell I am told sold on Pamela's and I have a son who is really picking and doesn't have to eat what I do and he loves the things I make with it so that alone makes me give it a thumbs up. :D

So far I've only made brownies and pancakes, but my kids loved both. I know it does have some buttermilk in it and also almond flour.

:( Yes, almond flour. I was going to buy some pancake mix tonight and I realized it had had almonds. My ds is very sensitive to things processed in a nut facility. He can't even eat Puffins!

Does anyone know of a good Gluten-free, nut free flour?

I like Pam's mixes too! I did the "bagel" variation w/ her bread mix and had the closest thing to a bagel I'd had in more than 5 years!!!

If you google "pamela's gluten-free mix copycat recipe," you'll find one or more recipes to mix your own flour blend to VERY closely approximate Pamela's mix at a fraction of the cost.

But if you don't have time/space to do so, order in bulk!

Thanks! I'll try that!

Ditto...me too. I live an hour and 15 minutes from the store that carries Pamela's, so that copy cat recipe will help...thanks!

Hi,

I often buy Hodgson Mill's gluten-free baking mix, at my grocery store! It's good for choc chip cookies, pancakes, waffles, coffee cake and really good brownies. Those recipes are all on the box! It has millet, sorghum, brown rice and xanthum gum in it.

I made a Betty Hagman biscuit mix this morning, and used the Hodgson Mill's gluten-free baking mix with quinoa, amaranth, cornstarch and tapioca for the flour blend. The biscuits were too soft, but tasted good! Next time I'll use less liquid.

I'm allergic to almonds, as well as most beans, so I can't use the garfava flour blends or some Pamela's. I usually blend my own since I have so many other foods to avoid. I do use alot of Bob's Red Mill mixes, too.

I have a box of it but have been scared to try it. :blink: Now I will, thanks for the tip. There is a recipe for pie crust too...Have you tried it?

I see the ingredients are millet, garbonzo, brown rice and x-gum(I call xanthan that for short).

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
