I love everything about baking – the aromas, savoring each bite, and sharing homemade treats at home, work, school and social events. I think people should be able to enjoy ALL the goodness of baked goods without worrying that the ingredients will harm their health.
That’s why I created Marion’s Smart Delights. These baking mixes are the first of my products that are certified gluten-free, certified kosher, free of the top 8 allergens, and made in a dedicated gluten-free and allergen-free facility.
Okay, so now that you know what’s NOT in them, let’s look at what is!
Whole grains. For starters, you can count on whole grains. Marion’s Cookie and Muffin Baking Mix, for example, nourishes you with 8 grams of whole grains per serving — from healthy grains like millet, amaranth, quinoa, and timtana.
Reduced sugar. In baking, sugar is essential for texture so my mixes include just enough to create light, tender treats. To perfect the sweetness, we use just a small bit of inulin plus Luo Han Guo, a low-glycemic, low-calorie Chinese fruit.
This is especially good news for people with diabetes since corn syrup and other types of sweeteners often used in commercial mixes can be a problem. Of course, everyone’s palate is different, so my mixes are formulated to let you add more of your favorite sweetener. You can even start very sweet then gradually let your taste buds learn to appreciate the natural sweetness of the basic mix.
High fiber. According to the July 2010 issue of Better Homes and Gardens, “many packaged gluten-free foods have less fiber and more starch than their gluten-containing counterparts.” With my versatile baking mixes, however, you can use the free recipes on the box and website to enjoy plenty of nutritious fiber with delicious add-ins like oats or coconut flakes.
Easy and versatile! Marion's Cookie and Muffin Baking Mix is easy to use and endlessly versatile! Enjoy the mix just as it is, or add extra sweetener along with your own “extras” like cranberries, oranges, bananas or even nuts and chocolate chips. We have tasty recipes on the box and we’ll be posting even more on this blog, so check back often. Also, please share the recipes you create using our mix!
