Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Regular, Organic and Gluten Free

Today I would like to introduce you to Heartland Gourmet’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookie.  Are you an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, Chocolate Chip Cookie or peanut butter cookie fan?  If you ask a group of 100 people you would probably get equal results.  Oatmeal Raisin Cookies have been a popular cookie in American Culture since the early 1800’s.  In fact, America has its own Oatmeal Cookie Day, which is April 30th.  I can still remember the smell of grandma’s house when she would be baking Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.  They were one of her favorites.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

We can help you satisfy your oatmeal cookie craving.  Heartland Gourmet manufactures three varieties, regular, organic and gluten free.  Our gluten free variety is processed in a certified gluten free kitchen and we test every batch.  The mix is filled with oatmeal, raisins and spices that make oh so tantalizing cookies.  The cookies are soft and scrumptious.

Whether you enjoy baking or not, you will enjoy making these cookies.  The are a cinch to make.  Just cream some butter add the mix and an egg and in about 2 minutes you have a delicious batch of oatmeal raisin cookie dough.  Then just use a cookie scoop and drop dough about 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet.  10-12 minutes later, you have a scrumptious smelling kitchen and delicious cookies.

It is great to have a couple boxes on hand for when you need cookies fast and don’t have a lot of time.  For example, when your child comes downstairs at 9:00pm and tells you they signed up to bring cookies for their class party the next day.  They are easy to throw together after work for that evening meeting or get-together.  Or whip up a batch just before the kids come home and have them ready to eat for a delicious after school snack.  Perhaps you just want to satisfy your craving? Whatever the reason, you can have delicious Oatmeal Raisin Cookies in just minutes.

Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Muffins

After a long drive through the mountains of Montana this weekend, I found myself staring at the beautiful landscape beginning to change to colors of rich yellow, deep orange, and rust brown.  It was so beautiful and that was just the beginning!  No matter what part of the country you find yourself in right now, you may be noticing the changing of seasons.

To welcome Fall in, I can’t think of a better time to introduce you to Heartland Gourmet’s Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Muffin Mix.  Don’t worry if you aren’t gluten free, we have a regular version too!  Today though, I enjoyed making our gluten free version.  They made my house smell like fall and were wonderfully moist and delicious.  The entire family enjoyed them.

Many of you know that gluten free baking isn’t easy, but what is easy is baking gluten free with Heartland Gourmet.  We have taken the out the guesswork of trying to convert your recipes and help bring traditional favorites to you in one convenient box.  Seriously, it is as easy as mixing some butter and adding and egg and water.  Before you ask, yes you can make this dairy free.  Just replace the butter with equal parts dairy free margarine or coconut oil.  If choosing coconut oil, soften it in microwave for about 20-25 seconds before adding it to the mixing bowl.  If you need to be egg free, use 1 flax egg (see below) or equivalent to one egg of energ egg replacer.   After mixing the ingredients allow to rest in mixing bowl for about 10 minutes or so before filling muffin cups.  Then bake.  It’s as easy as 1, 2, and 3!  If you live in higher altititudes bake for an extra 5-7 minutes.  You will know they are done when the tops bounce back when touched.

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread ~ HG

Today is Banana Lovers Day!  So of course, we have to celebrate!  Let me introduce you to Heartland Gourmet’s Gluten Free Banana Bread Mix!  This mix is a breeze to make, just add the mix, oil, water and two eggs.  Mix and pop it into a pan and 30-40 minutes later your house will smell great and a delicious banana bread will be coming out of the oven.  All of our Gluten Free Mixes are certified gluten free and processed in a quality food safety certified gluten free environment.  So you can feel safe eating gluten free with Heartland Gourmet.


In honor of Banana Lovers Day, I made up a batch of our Gluten Free Banana Bread Mix and added some fun to the mix.  Whenever I have ripe bananas, instead of throwing them away, I cut them into small pieces and freeze them in an airtight container.  Then when I want to make a shake or in this case banana bread, they are ready to use.  I threw in a small banana’s worth of frozen chunks and since my kids were home added 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Pour the batter into your favorite bread pan, spread evenly and make three slashes across the top.  Now keep in mind the mix is ready to use and you don’t have to add the extra’s that I added unless of course you just want to.

I baked mine for 45-50 minutes even though the box says 30 minutes, because I am baking from 3200 feet alt. in Montana.  Ovens and altitudes do alter baking times so you will know it’s done when you touch the top and the bread bounces back.  It was a hit at my house and I know it will be a hit at yours too!
