The One Green Planet Verdict: It’s hard to believe these mixes are gluten-free and vegan! When we first pulled our baked goods out of the oven and bit into them, our mouths were greeted with a moist, fluffy cake that stands up next to some great traditional cake mixes out there! Here’s the skinny on all seven mixes:

With an excellent texture and traditional flavor, the vanilla and chocolate mixes are sure to be crowd favorites. The chai spice mix is slightly more exotic, with an awesome, sweet and spicy flavor. We loved it!

The lavender mix has a strong but refreshing lavender flavor, while the chocolate lavender mix has equal notes of both flavors. If you like a sweet pairing, the vanilla frosting works well on any of the cake mixes. Sliced fruit also makes a delicious topping.

We tried the all-purpose baking mix in a banana chocolate chip muffin recipe with excellent results! The end result was soft, fluffy, and delicious, and unlike many other gluten-free mixes, it rose perfectly! This mix would also be great for pancakes, waffles, and other baking needs.
