Enjoy Life Mixes

Being a whole-food vegan, I am typically making bakery from scratch.  But sometimes, I yearn for the times when I could just buy a ready-to-go mix off the shelf, add a few ingredients (typically animal products & oil) and whip something up without tearing the kitchen apart or eating up a large portion of my day.

Because of this, I was super excited to try Enjoy Life's new line of baking mixes.

Recently, Enjoy Life sent me their new line of baking mixes to check out.

This new line contains the following mixes:
  • Brownie
  • Pancake/Waffle
  • Pizza Crust
  • Muffin
  • All-Purpose Flour

What sets these mixes apart from any other on the shelf is that they do not contain the following common allergies:

I'm not exactly sure when Potatoes became a major allergen, but that sucks - sorry Potato-free people!

On top of all that, these mixes, as well as all Enjoy Life products are vegan, non-GMO certified, Kosher certified and Halal certified (I had to look this one up).  Halal means foods allowed under Islamic Shari'ah (law) (I had to Google that one).  Another added bonus is the addition of Probiotics.  Not that a pan of Brownies is going to uproot your daily Probi, but it's a nice enhancement.

Now these mixes do call for oil.  Being an abstainer of oil, I simply didn't use any and because the quantity called for was so low, I did not substitute the oil with the Brownies, Pancakes/Waffles & Pizza mixes.  As the Muffin mix calls for 1/4 oil, that's getting into potential end result malfunction territory, so I simply substituted an equal amount of Apple Sauce.  And guess what...these mixes performed perfectly.

Now I just need Enjoy Life to come out with a Chocolate Chip Cookie mix and my vegan life shall be complete (well mostly...).

Check it out!
