Breads From Anna Product Review

  It is becoming that time of year, where pie making becomes abundant.  Apple pie because it is apple picking season.  Pumpkin pies because it's time for that too.  And if you are making one pie, then why not a couple more... sweet potato, pecan, and ohhhh, don't forget blueberry!
   A good pie needs a good pie crust.
    Easy to make is a requirement in my book.  I never made pie crusts before going gluten free.  But with a gluten, dairy, egg, and corn allergies, there was no choice.  If I wanted pie, I had to make the crust.
  When I am not making it from scratch,  I make it from Breads from Anna.  I tried it after reading about them in my Living Without magazine a few months ago.
   Their pie crust is really, really good.  Which was a total shocker considering the ingredient list didn't seem all that appetizing to me.  Tapioca flour, arrowroot, chickpea flour, pinto bean flour, navy bean flour, potato starch, millet, chia flour, crystallized honey, xanthan gum, cream of tartar, baking soda and sea salt. 
    
    It is corn, dairy, soy, nut, rice, and egg free.   I was happy to learn that their xanthan gum is corn free.

I decided that since I really loved their pie crust, that I would try some of their bread mixes too.  They offer a long list of allergy free mixes.  This includes, corn free, soy free, dairy free, gluten free, nut free, rice free, and yeast free bread mixes.  I tried their classic herb bread and it was delicious!  
And the smell!  Oh!  
It was a good day! 

 I chose to cook my bread in the oven but one of the benefits that Breads from Anna offers is they have instructions for use of their mixes with all the major bread machines.  They even have a number you can call if you have problems with their mix in your bread machine. 
I made my herb bread egg free following their tips and it came out like this--


The bread deflated very little and didn't sink in the center. 
 It sliced up beautifully!


Gluten free, dairy free, corn free, soy free, egg free!  It was pure YUM!
I now have lots of Breads from Anna mixes on my pantry shelves.  You can check out their product line HERE!
