Sister's Gourmet - Gourmet Baking Mixes Review

I received product for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

I'm not the world's best chef but sometimes I like to bake. Inevitably, when those times come, it seems I don't have all the ingredients I need. That's one reason I'm very favorable towards the Sister's Gourmet cooking mixes.

Sister's Gourmet offers simple to prepare, one-bowl recipes. Their commitment is to offer you the highest quality ingredients available in their gourmet baking mixes, many of which are all-natural, made without artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.

I received the Crisp & Colorful Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies cookie mix from Sister's Gourmet for review. The mix came in a Mason jar with the layered ingredients inside. A pretty wrapper and bow adorned the lid.

The dry ingredients in the mix included whole grain oats, corn flakes, coconut, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. The mix called for for real butter, egg, and vanilla which I had to supply myself to add to the dry ingredients. The baking directions were included on a hang tag of the jar and they were easy to follow. It mostly consisted of mixing the dry ingredients in the jar with the wet ingredients. The dry ingredients from the jar were packed tightly so I had to take the handle of a butter knife to shake them loose before they poured out.

Once baked, the cookies turned out quite delicious. I shared some with family and took the rest to work. The cookies tasted just like homemade and had a moist, chewy texture to them. The whole process was easy, didn't take much time, and the mix allowed me to have most of the ingredients all in one place. Not only did I get tasty cookies out of the deal, I also got to reuse the Mason jar for another purpose after washing it.
