Baking mixes are a brilliant way to get kids cooking with minimum fuss but many come with lots of nasties, too.
So, in 2013, former food editor, founder ofthe UK’s first cookery school for children Cookie Crumbles and mother-of-two Carola Weymouth diversified her business and launched fabulously wholesome baking mixes.
To help busy mums, the mixes are hand-blended and hand-packed in Yorkshire with ingredients that are 100% natural and include seeds, wholemeal wheat flour and grains, mostly sourced from the UK. And the perfectly measured packs mean you only need to add a couple of wet ingredients and your little chef is guaranteed to create a tasty treat to call their own.
This is easy home baking at its best and all in under 30 minutes. The kitchen is filled with amazing baking aromas and the kids have enjoyed a fun-filled activity.
The latest in the Cookie Crumbles line-up, Fabulous Gingerbread Biscuit Mix, inspired by the endless appeal of the gingerbread man, is sure to add some festive flavour to your kitchen. Carola says: “The Gingerbread Man has always been a firm favourite in home baking so we’ve launched this scrumptious mix.”
The new mix joins the Awesome Wholesome Brownie Mix, Cinnamon, White Chocolate and Cranberry Muffin Mix, Blueberry & Vanilla Muffin Mix, Granola Energy Bar Mix, Gluten Free Brownie Mix with Cinnamon and Sunny Oat & Raisin Cookie Mix to bring the range to seven.
The packs have recently been revamped with bright colours to bring out the brand’s fun, get-stuck-in spirit, engage little ones and highlight the artisanal quality. Carola says: “On each new pack, we tell our story and share our passion of how the mixes came to be created. We thrive on making high-quality baking mixes for every generation of customer.”
The range is sold across the UK in quality outlets such as Whole Foods, Budgens and the Hillier Group and online at Cookie Crumbles, Not on The High Street, Yumbles and Amazon.
