We love both the Gluten Free Pantry and the Betty Crocker. Just be careful not to over bake either one, as I find they harden if cooked too long (just like any brownie). We alot of time add mint extract to the mix, or mint chocolate chips and they taste sooo good. I just found a new recipe online today for mint chocolate chip brownies using the Betty Crocker Mix. We are going to try it for Valentines Day. Here is the link for the new recipe I found today.

Have fun baking!

My vote--hands down The Gluten Free Pantry.

Betty Crocker is also very good but gets stale much faster and is not as chocolatey. The only problem I have with GFP is that the brownie mix is hard to find in my area. It comes in and is sold out very quickly.

Have a Happy Birthday! :D

Have you considered going homemade? WholeFoods has a flourless brownie recipe on their website. It's made w/ black beans. I substitute agave syrup for the sugar. they stay very moist. the 1st batch was a bit "beany" for me, but i tweaked the recipe to personal taste (i added a bit more coco powder) the 2nd time and they were perfect. the 3rd time i made them i used a silicone snow flaked designed muffin tin, cut the cook time by @ 1/2 and they were great. now the only issue is that if i only eat one a day they start to grow mold so i freeze at least 1/2 the batch immediately.

When it comes to mixes, I've had better luck with GFP. That said, I really, really love Karina's brownies at glutenfreegoddess. I've tweaked that thing time and time again. (With fantastic results and no whining from the gluten (and dairy) eaters.)

I just learned how to make flourless chocolate cakes and they are amazing! Much richer than a brownie, but they're homemade and super yummy! I made them in cupcake tins to make "mini cakes," they could easily be substituted for brownies!!

My favorite boxed brownie mix is Gluten Free Pantry, I ordered them off amazon and got a discounted rate for subscribe and save, they're super good because they have little chocolate chips in them. Mmmmm...now you're making me want chocolate! :)

I have to vote for Trader Joes, it is cheaper and it makes awesome brownies that have the thin crust over the tops that cracks when you bite it (that's my favorite part)

I add choco chips and it is even better

Put me down for Trader Joe's also! Great moist crunch. I have added cho. chips, dried fruit and or nuts. I also made them for gluten eaters at this years SuperBowl party-know one knew! I made the brownies fancier with pecans inside and topped with a whole pecan (football) and melted chocolate over the top. I also dusted them with powdered sugar-it was a special occasion!!!

I too have to vote for Trader Joe's gluten-free brownie mix. The flavor & texture are amazing, & even my picky, gluten-eating husband loves them! Many of the other mixes have soy, so I haven't tried them. One brand I tried (can't remember which) turned out so hard that I practically needed a chisel to get them out of the pan.

On a side note, Namaste foods makes a Blondies mix that is out of this world! Add some Enjoy Life chocolate chips, & you have a panful of yumminess!

Now I'm craving something sweet.... :D

    • Ok so is this really true?!?! Conventional? Remember, the fecal transplant was first described in the 1950s, but took decades to catch on as a conventional treatment for gut disorders, such as c-dif bacteria, partly because it was seen as crude and somehow objectionable. But it proved to work. Really well. So much so that it's now a fairly conventional treatment.
    • You are super sweet. I'm sorry your extended family isn't great about get togethers and cards. My family is the same. Once my parents died I don't have anyone who really cares about me except for my husband and kids. My parents started getting really weird about stuff as they got older, and my sisters are way older than me and we didn't grow up together, so we aren't close at all. In fact one sister hates me. They didn't even come to our parents funerals. Families pretty much suck so you gotta appreciate whatever you can put together for a support system. I come here every day looking for a smile or laugh, an encouraging word, or an opportunity to give advice. You guys are definitely part of my extended family   for what it's worth I would be up for secret santa.
    • Wow everyone my memory lane stuff just keeps popping up on this forum!!!! Thanks for sharing the post op and Audrey the pic. I had what looked like this on my inner left ankle in my late 20's!  It never got diagnosed at the time. I was seeing Dr's at time early pregnancy and then missed miscarriage.  dr's I had at the time I asked didn't know what it was. Period of time I had some of the worst headaches of my life etc. I didn't know if I had been bitten by a spider (brown recluse not in my area though) , the miscarriage, or picked up something from the hospital during my follow up miscarriage stuff-stirrup /ankle. I don't have a pic of it to share. Dr's didn't know, my mom a nurse didn't know , that left my husband who is a bit more holistic based and helped me on healing it  at home. I am really shocked to see see posts and all too often say wow! That's my .... from whatever decade  I'm newly recognized/diagnosed too so this was 15 years ago! wow if any one has any active pg I wish you comfort and swift healing . Been there but didn't have the puzzle piece until you gave it to me now. so many puzzle pieces....finally .....start making an image since I joined this forum.    
    • I can guarantee you that once you get your weight back up to normal, your period will come back.  You sound really malnourished and if your weight gets too low, your periods will stop.  Don't panic.......I was down to about 92-94 pounds at diagnosis so you will be able to heal if you do the diet correctly and don't cheat. Once you start to feel better and your other problems are under control , you will find it easy to stick to the diet. Nothing beats health!  Good luck to you!
    • As the other's have stated, you most certainly can go on to have additional AI diseases whether or not you are Celiac or NCGS.  Many AI diseases can be figured out without mainstream testing, as you know from your severe symptoms of Sjogren's.  I also have Sjogren's and knew that I did without any doubt because of the severity of my symptoms.  I was later tested with a new PCP and yes, they confirmed what I already knew.  Have you had the blood work for Sjogren's?  Not that it matters because you already know. As Sjogren's really has no treatment other than treating the symptoms, having a confirmed diagnosis doesn't always matter.  Just see the doctors you need to see for the specific problems you have stemming from it and that's all you can really do.  So far, it has worked for me.
