Baking for Food Allergies Made Easy & Freebies

We are very lucky to have some wonderful items from Meraby Allergy Family Foods to give away this month: 4 packages of muffin and pancake baking mix, 1 big bottle of Pure Mexican Vanilla Extract, and a bunch of magnets.  So, a big thank you goes out to Meraby's! To find out more about Meraby's and the giveaway, read on!

Meraby’s, of Madison, Alabama, produces baking mixes which are free of peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, and egg.  Founded by a family with a child suffering from multiple food allergies, they take product quality and safety very seriously.  Additional information about the manufacturing facility--which is free of peanuts and tree nuts--is provided in the Meraby Guarantee.  Their current product line includes a blueberry muffin and pancake mix and a cranberry orange muffin and pancake mix.  All you need to add is oil and water!  Or you can make quick breads by following the instructions in the package.  Simple, fast, and safe!  And tasty too--my family eats the muffins so quickly, they’re all gone within a few hours!

And we've received word of exciting news coming from Meraby's these days.  In October, they'll be unveiling a new line of products.  The new mixes will be wheat-free, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, egg-free, peanut-free and tree nut-free!  You'll really have your choice of products--muffin/pancake mixes, cake mixes, brownies, etc.  It's so great to have choices!  In the development of these new recipes, Meraby's placed particular emphasis on the texture of the finished baked products.  Texture sometimes can be a problem with gluten-free, wheat-free products, but you won't have to worry about with Meraby's mixes!  The new products include:

Pure Mexican Vanilla Extract - Gluten & Corn Free and made in a facility that does not produce nut extracts!  Made with Mexican vanilla beans, which are cited as the best in the world.  (Available Now!) 

Ultimate Chocolate Chunk Brownie Mix – Real chocolate chips in the mix 

Decadent Double Layer Chocolate Cake – Makes two layers, as opposed to most competitors products that only make one layer. 

Wild Maine Blueberry Muffin & Pancake Mix – Canned wild Maine blueberries are included in the box. 

Double Layer Vanilla Cake Mix – Will make two layers of vanilla cake, but will also have recipes available that will allow the consumer to make lemon cake, banana bread, pumpkin bread, etc.
