Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancake Mix
October 6, 2014—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
New to our store shelves this year, Trader Joe's Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancake Mix comes in a pumpkin-adorned box that seems to imply that every pumpkin dreams of being a pancake. Or perhaps the implication is that every pumpkin dreams of eating a pancake. Whatever the insinuation, we can evidently extrapolate that this particular pumpkin has an aversion to gluten, and that the pancakes in question are, like the contents within the box, gluten free.
We developed Trader Joe's Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancake Mix after numerous requests from fans of our original Pumpkin Pancake Mix who found themselves, for myriad reasons, eating a gluten free diet. We worked for months to get the texture just right—can't have heavy, soggy pancakes!—and finally hit it with a blend of rice flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, and pumpkin flakes. Savory seasonal spices—like cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and nutmeg—add a warm, fall-ish feeling that you can elevate even further with a hearty pour of maple syrup atop the finished cakes. The recipe on the box will help you in your cakey quest. And as the box proudly proclaims, this Mix makes it possible for you to have your (pan)cake and eat it too, even if you've gone gluten free. (There is a considerable amount of wisdom on this box…)
We're selling each 18.5 ounce box of kosher (dairy) certified Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancake Mix for $4.49, for as long as the Pumpkin Fairy can keep it in stock. You'll find it in our grocery aisle.
