Gluten-Free Goodies at Land O'Lakes
My mom sent me a link a few weeks ago to gluten-free recipes on the Land O’Lakes website. It is nice to see a national brand include the gluten-free community as a key part of their audience. I also appreciate a website that includes recipes with their own products but used in a gluten-free scenario. I am a big fan of the Kraft website and magazine and I wish they would jump on the gluten-free bandwagon. They currently have ZERO gluten-free recipes on their Kraft site and only one member-submitted recipe. Thank you for Land O’Lakes for including the gluten-free recipes on their website.

Here is what Land O’Lakes has to say:

"Are you one of the millions of Americans who loves baked goods but needs to avoid gluten? If so, you'll flip for these delicious gluten-free recipes. Enjoy your favorite home-baked treats like chewy chocolate chip cookies, fudgy brownies, and special desserts - all gluten-free!"

"Eating gluten-free is important for many with gluten intolerance. Gluten is a protein found in wheat and related grains like barley, rye, spelt, kamut and triticale. Though the term "gluten-free" has not yet been defined by the USDA or FDA, we will use it here to identify foods or recipes that, to the best of our knowledge, do not contain gluten. These gluten-free recipes have been developed and tested with alternative flours and other products labeled as "gluten-free". For more information about gluten, click here."

2 cups rice flour
2/3 cup potato starch
1/3 cup tapioca flour
1 teaspoon xanthan gum

Land O’Lakes Gluten-Free Baking Tips
  • Maintain a gluten-free cupboard
  • Avoid oats and oatmeal.
  • Gluten-free flours may require more leavening
  • We recommend using an electric mixer
  • Gluten-free batters tend to be sticky.
  • Use good quality measuring spoons and cups.
  • Use non-stick pans or line your pans with parchment paper.
  • When using a gluten-free flour, store it in the freezer in a resealable plastic freezer bag to maintain quality.
  • Baked goods with gluten-free flours taste best when eaten warm from the oven but they also freeze well.

Isn't it great when the big companies recognize just how important being GF is to so many people.
Thanks for letting me know about the website.
