Review - Delicious Alchemy

I've been trying to write something witty and clever for this post but I mostly want to shake the hand of the person behind Delicious Alchemy and go on the website and TAKE MY MONEY.

I tried out the Delicious Alchemy Oat Cookie Mix and the Brown Bread Mix and both work like a dream and require such little effort that I'm still slightly in shock.

I have been gluten free for aeons and egg free for about 4 years. In that time I have forked out hundreds of pounds on exotic ingredients to make my own food. I have thrown disgusting lumps of 'bread' into the bin and become mad scientist-like in my quest for a 'simple' home-made biscuit.

Rice Flour, Potato Starch, Rice Bran, Sugar, Sugar Beet Fibre, Stabiliser
(Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose), Dried Yeast, Salt, Psyllium Fibre, Flour
Treatment Agent (Ascorbic Acid), Stabiliser (Xanthan Gum), Cocoa Powder

I added oil and water to this mix, left for 20 minutes to prove, popped it in the oven and I got the most perfect loaf, crunchy on the outside and bouncy, soft in the middle. I got 13 (small) slices from one loaf and it froze and defrosted with aplomb. And it was such a pleasure to be able to slice my bread as I like it.

Gluten Free Oats (34%), Sugar, Rice Flour, Potato Starch, Raising Agents
(Disodium Diphosphate, Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate, Calcium Sulphate),

The cookie mix was even easier. I added dairy free marge and water and 20 minutes later had the most tasty cookies. They baked like a dream, kept in one piece and stayed fresh overnight. They taste like maple syrup Oats So Simple smells and are really, bloody moreish.

I can't believe how reasonably priced everything is too. £2.49 for the bread mix (19p a slice - Another GF and EF bread on the market works out at 43p a slice!)

And I love the website, so simple to navigate and all the info is there (don't you hate it when you can't even find out ingredients on sites selling 'free from' products?)

Next on my shopping list - I'll be trying the white bread mix, instant porridge (dairy free!) and chocolate brownie mix.

*These products are not suitable for egg or soya allergy sufferers. May contain traces of nuts & peanuts*

I received these samples free of charge. My review is all my own opinion and wording.
