Coronary over the New Gluten Free Bisquick Pancake Mix!

Normally, I shop at healthier oriented stores, like WholeFoods, but sometimes I go to the big commercial grocers to get things like Breyers homemade style vanilla ice cream and the occasional steak, which these days seems to have no flavor at all. What do they do to those poor cows to make ’em taste so bland?

As I was walking down the grocery store isle, I almost had a coronary when I saw a new product: Gluten Free Bisquick flour mix! Like many people, I grew up eating (and loving) Bisquick pancakes.

Having to give them up, when I found out what was wrong with me (Celiac Disease), was hard and a terribly sad farewell. No gluten free pancakes have ever since tasted as good as Bisquick’s. And here it is, Bisquick’s very own gluten free pancake mix.

It is the most fantastic development since sliced Wonder Bread in the 1920’s! Well… as far as highly processed foods are concerned. Really, no processed foods are all that great for you, but if you are going to eat pancakes, why not eat the best, Bisquick? Once Wonder Bread gets hip to the whole gluten free thing, realizing that wheat is actually not the healthy alternative to white, rice is, then we will have come full circle.

With a frightening amount of enthusiasm, I put the Gluten Free Bisquick pancake mix in my basket and completely forgot about the ice cream for which I came.

That night, I had the gluten free Bisquick pancakes for dinner. Their consistency and taste were strikingly similar to the original mix, if not better! I was stunned. Going gluten free, I haven’t had “real pancakes” in a long time.

The next night, we made Bisquick gluten free biscuits, and those were incredible too. I haven’t had biscuits in about 8 years. My favorite biscuits were at The Red Lobster restaurant, yet I always had a massive stomach ache after eating ’em. These Bisquick gluten free biscuits are just as good as Red Lobster’s! Bisquick’s biscuits are delicious and easy to make. Can’t tell you how happy this made me. Hopefully places like Red Lobster will also realize the pain their gluten causes customers and convert to gluten free as well.

On the box are also directions how to make gluten free pizza crust, gluten free waffles, gluten free strawberry shortcake, and gluten free chicken fingers! On Bisquick’s website are many more yummy sounding recipes as well, all easy to make. I am looking forward to trying them all.

Having eaten this stuff two nights in a row, I did not get sick. I am hyper sensitive to gluten, so you can feel confident eating gluten free Bisquick. Yay! It’s a new world. Fast and easy cooking at a familiar old great taste, you must get the new Gluten Free Bisquick mix.

Like all processed and sugary foods, eat it in moderation.

    Hi Deborah — Thanks for the waffle freezing tip, that’s a great idea. I was a bit over-zealous with my waffle maker and broke the thing… but will get another someday.

    I am so glad you found out about Celiac before they started cutting into you! I hear these horror stories and misdiagnosis. Having to not eat gluten, as opposed to surgeries and pills, is a blessing. Things could be worse. It seems everyone has some kind of problem; overall, having Celiac is not that bad of a problem to have, and forces you to discover exciting new foods and ways of living.

    Yes, in just the past couple years, soooo many new gluten free products have come out. It’s really great for people like us.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Bisquick Gluten-Free is outstanding. I make several waffles at a time put some away in the frige for a snack during the day when I grave some of the bread or treats. Its great to make several and freeze them, put them in the toaster for days you are in a rush. If only I could find some good bread but I have resolved that I should just make it and freeze it as well. I have been sick for 8 years now and have been to several specialist and GI’s who thought I had IBS, then diabetic gastropharesis I just found out short of drastic surgery that I have Celiac. Although it is an adjustment I can manage this I had gone a year with no raw fruit or vegetables. I will adjust because as someone else said once companies catch on to the fact that so many people are discovering that they have gluten allergies they will have to get on board.

  2. […] For pancakes that take less thought and preparation, but are also not as nutritious, Bisquick offers a very tasty Gluten-Free Pancake Mix. […]
