Immaculate Baking Double chocolate brownies with flaxseed & almonds

4 sample boxes were provided to me for evaluation by Immaculate Baking through Platefull Co-Op.

Ok, so I try not to rely on boxed baking or any processed storage foods for that matter, but sometimes you are in a hurry or the last thing you want to do is bake from scratch. Meanwhile, you have a family begging for desert and you're missing key ingredients. That is when you spring for something as close as you can get to baking from scratch. Immaculate dry Baking mixes are the perfect go to. 

Why get excited? 

  • They contain no artificial flavor or preservatives
  • They are GMO Free 
  • You have Gluten free & Organic choices 
  • There is no bleached flour 
  • There are 8 different delectable confections to choose from 
  • No High fructose corn syrup
  • 0 grams trans fat 

I made Immaculate baking Brownies scratch mix and added a few of my own ingredients, just to spice it up and give it a fiber kick. 

  • Two tablespoons of flax seed were added. 
  • As well as a handful of sliced almonds. I was out of walnuts, but the almonds were not a bad sub! 

I am not going to sugar coat this, well ok I am this time, Zing!  These brownies were insanely like the real thing. They tasted freshly baked and absotively nothing like your average boxed mix. These were amazing just out of the oven with some almond milk. So moist and chewy inside contrasted with a nice crunch on top. So fresh tasting and the chocolate didn't taste at all artificial.  I can tell why these are a bit more expensive and I personally think it's worth the extra mula when you have it. 

I bet if you served these, anyone would assume they were homemade. Well, technically they are, you just didn't go out and buy all the needed ingredients. The ingredients in the box are so minimal and there is nothing in the list you can't pronounce. 

Take a look at the ingredients list. 

  • Sugar
  •  Wheat Flour
  • Semisweet Chocolate Chips (un-sweetened chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter, vanilla extract)
  • Cocoa powder 
  • Corn Starch
  • Salt
  • Natural Vanilla Flavor

Impressive eh? I'm excite! 

Immaculate baking provided me with 4 baking from scratch boxes I am hard pressed not try out every single one very soon. I plan to make banana muffins next with their yellow cake mix.

As an aside, I am happy to point out that Immaculate baking gives a personal touch to their products by featuring their children's art on the boxes. Evidenced by the little elephant drawing on the brownie box. How cute is that? Also, They use 100% recycled cardboard to make their boxes and you have to give them props for that as well! Highly recommend you check these guys out.
