Forget spending time and energy figuring out hard-to-follow baking recipes that take hours to prepare. Among Friends delicious, whole grain, non-GMO mixes are already blended together and can be ready in just minutes. When it comes to dessert ingredients, there is no need to let multiple bags of special flours and ingredients go stale on your pantry shelf. Now is the perfect time to stock the pantry with quick and easy mixes that already contain high quality, nutritious ingredients.

The first thing you notice with these baking mixes is that they are extremely easy to make. Literally, all you have to do is empty the mix into a large bowl, add an egg, 1 tsp vanilla, and 4 Tbsp of butter. Then Mix well, form 1 inch balls and pop them in the oven for 9 minutes. Seriously, it doesn’t get any easier than this!

These cookies were pretty good. The cookies have a good amount of oats, the cranberries gave it a hint of tartness, but the added chocolate chips gave it that little bit of sweetness, and the final result was yummy!

From start to finish, I don’t think these cookies even took me 15 minutes and being a busy mom that is awesome! The kids think I have magical powers and with a blink of an eye, fresh baked wholesome cookies appear! That’s how convenient this baking mix is.

I highly recommend getting your hands on these!
