5 Gluten-Free Baking Mixes We Love

Shhh—you’d never know they’re gluten-free.


Williams Sonoma Georgetown Cupcake Mix, Gluten-Free Vanilla


It’s easy to whip up a gluten-free version of the D.C.-based bakery’s famous cupcakes. Just add milk, eggs, and butter to the mix. The results are airy, moist, and very-vanilla, thanks to a combination of vanilla extract and vanilla paste. Finish the fresh-baked treats with your favorite frosting and sprinkles.

Julie’s Original Gluten-Free Fudge Brownie Mix


Making these brownies is as easy as 1, 2, 3: stir in oil and milk, transfer the batter to a baking dish, and bake until fudgy. For a vegan version, try using coconut or almond milk in place of regular milk.

Cup4cup Gluten Free Wholesome Flour


Ground flaxseeds and rice bran deliver 4g of fiber, 14g of whole grains, and plenty of Omega-3 fatty acids per ¼ cup serving, making this flour a versatile option for baking that won’t change the taste of your favorite recipes. The best news? You can swap it for regular whole wheat flour in a 1 to 1 ratio.

Simple Mills Gluten-Free Pancake and Waffle Mix


There are a ton of pancake and waffle mixes on the market, but none of them make pancakes as light and fluffy as this one. Almond flour replaces regular all-purpose flour for pleasantly nutty, toasted flavor, and there are just seven other simple ingredients.

Scratch & Grain Baking Gluten-Free Snicker Doodle Cookie Kit


There’s no substitute for a classic snickerdoodle, crisp around the edges and chewy in the middle. Luckily, this kit makes cookies identical to the ones you grew up eating. We like the way each ingredient comes pre-measured and individually packaged. All you have to do is blend them together and supply your own butter and egg.
