Yes, Miss Roben’s Allergy Friendly Baking Mixes are back and the owners say it’s “for good”. We hope so.

Plus, the collection of Miss Roben’s Allergy Friendly Baking Mixes includes the most fun and unique options. They have traditional cake and muffin mixes, but you can also make your own Mock Goldfish Crackers, Bagels, Animal Cookies, and more!

Tasting Notes for Miss Roben’s Allergy Friendly Baking Mixes
In addition to being free of dairy, gluten, soy, eggs, and nuts, Miss Roben’s Allergy Friendly Baking Mixes are also free of corn and GMO ingredients. They also offer a corn-free powdered sugar. I used it in several recipes and swear that the results were better than when I use Trader Joe’s organic powdered sugar. Most of their mixes are starch-based, and some are even flour-free. But they do use brown rice flour in the heartier blends.
I’ve included notes on a couple of the mixes that we tried, but please feel free to leave your own rating and review below if you try any of their mixes.
Soft Pretzel Mix
I chose to try out the Soft Pretzel Mix, for something a little different. And because I love soft pretzels! The dough is softer, and breaks more easily than wheat dough. But I was still able to roll out some pretty cute pretzels. You can see a picture of them in the collage below, that is my photo. They were far from traditional, and didn’t really brown. They definitely had their own unique charms. They were just barely crusty on the outside, and softened when stored. The inside was tender, but a little chewy, like many gluten-free baked goods. I wasn’t a fan of the vinegar influence on the flavor (there’s an option for making it without), but overall thought these could be fun to make with different flavors and toppings.
Chocolate Cake Mix with Chocolate Fudge Frosting Mix
Caroline tried the Chocolate Cake Mix with the Chocolate Fudge Frosting Mix, and it was a huge hit. She prepared the cake with the frosting, took it to a board meeting and said that everyone went “crazy for it”. Her food allergic daughter concurred that it was delicious, helping to finish every last crumb. That said, like most gluten-free, allergy-friendly cakes, there was a little crumbling. The frosting was “very tasty” on its own, and helped to amplify the chocoholic experience. Caroline’s only complaint was that the frosting did take some work, and the instructions weren’t stellar.

Top 8 allergen free including corn
It’s hard to beat the selection from this top 8-free (and corn-free) baking mix maker. Tackling baked goods without dairy, eggs, nuts and gluten is no easy feat. And unlike many other “allergy friendly mixes” the instructions are free of top allergens, too. As to be expected, the results are different from traditional, but tasty in their own right. The Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting won raves from a full crowd of tasters with just a touch of crumbling. The Soft Pretzels will require a little more experimentation, but they were fun, unique and offer excellent versatility.
