That’s why we’ve worked hard to create natural products that are good for you, easy to prepare, and taste absolutely amazing.  We only use ingredients you’ll fall in love with—ingredients that have never been genetically modified and are free of grain, dairy, soy, and emulsifiers.

What people say about us:

It took all of three minutes to get them into the oven…Not only did the muffins maintain a gorgeous, moist consistency, the taste was out of this world.

My son who gets stomach aches from sugary or fatty foods can eat these and feel great all day!! I don't call them chocolate muffins but rather "Feel Good Breakfast Cakes"...wow, do we love them!!

- Patti, Amazon

It’ll knock your socks off as you take your first bite that simple, wholesome ingredients make such delicious muffins. Just read the ingredients… nothing weird that you can’t pronounce, or have to guess what it is.

Reviews for Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
5 out of 5, based on 2 reviews
jessica from MD on Jan 27, 2015
This mix is the bomb - so far my favorite mix from Simple Mills. My batch didn't look at all like the picture on the front, but nonetheless still tasted amazing and are almost gone. Everyone is digging into these! I only wish you could buy the mix in different sizes because these are slightly expensive for only 12 small cookies. I would definitely purchase more if the prices decreased and/or the sizes increased.
Stacey from Chicago on Jun 25, 2014
YUM. These are ridiculous. I feel myself transforming into the cookie monster. Love the texture and flavor - really nice moisture, just the right amount of sweet and richness. I'm big on low GI / low-sugar, so it's crazy to find something that taste better than any chocolate chip cookies I've ever had - gluten-free or regular.
Reviews for Almond Flour Focaccia & Sandwich Bread Mix
5 out of 5, based on 7 reviews
Joe Freeman from Indiana on Jan 24, 2015
Since i started Paleo one year ago i had not eaten any bread. I probably missed it the most out of anything from my old days. My previous experience with gluten free breads was very 'cardboard' like and so i honestly did not think that this almond mix could really taste like bread... but somehow it does! I made the Focaccia and i added a pinch of organic garlic powder to the mix and topped it off with chives, olive oil and salt before baking it. Delicious.

As a tip for the Foccaccia bread: if your mix turns out little dry, add 1 or 2 more tsp of both the olive oil and vinegar. Use wooden spatula to mix everything together.
amy from pa on Nov 20, 2014
I stumbled upon this in our organic section at the store. My son cannot have bread. due to ingredients in EVERY OTHER KIND Of BREAD! . I made this and my son couldn't eat it fast enough. He loves it. Constantly asking me to make it. I feel like I have hit the lottery and im on top of the world. bread can you believe something so simple that makes me and my child so happy! thank you for making my son love bread again. :)
Mike from Durham NC on Nov 07, 2014
Excellent product and reasonably priced. Definitley gluten free that tast good which is not the case with many gluten free products. I have used the muffing mixes and I am goint to order the Focaccia/Bread mix
Whitewater from Whitewater, WI on Oct 09, 2014
Heaven as Focaccia! What a treat to find, and so simple and quick to make! Big fan...
Elaine from CA on Sep 13, 2014
WOW! Just tried this focaccia bread and my whole family was blown away! Fantastic flavor and very easy to prepare. My daughter said it tastes like I'm a gourmet baker!! I added dried rosemary directly into the mix and then baked. Can't wait to try out different variations!
Sarah from Oceanside, CA on Aug 07, 2014
So Good! We've fallen in love with the muffin mixes so when we saw this just recently, we jumped at the chance to try it out. It's easy to make and tastes wonderful! The toughest part of maintaining a Paleo lifestyle for us has been surrendering all the wheat-based breads - this is such a great way to get that taste and feeling back! Keep up the great work, Simple Mills!
Cindy from Richardson, TX on Jun 24, 2014
Wow is this mix amazing!! I am a fan of the other Simple Mills products and just tried out the new focaccia mix. So simple to make and tastes just like focaccia bread from restaurants. I had this with balsamic vinegar and oil. Just like I remember from my wheat-eating days.

Sandie from New Jersey on Mar 14, 2015
My daughter and I follow a grain and dairy free diet and she discovered your muffin and bread mixes last week. We both went back to the store this week and loaded up on the mixes. So delicious, so moist and tasty. I had to check the packaging again to make sure of the ingredients, because the bread was just so good. Spread on a little cashew butter, made a cup of tea and enjoyed it. My time is so limited and within half an hour of opening the packet, I was eating. Thank you!
Kristin Berta from United States on Feb 20, 2015
I absolutely love all of the muffins, but I think banana is my favorite. Full-size or mini, with eggs, or vegan, always an amazing taste!
Olga from Virginia on Dec 22, 2014
Tried muffins and bread and they all good!!!
Alison from Nashville, TN on Dec 14, 2014
This Mix is sooooo delicious. I'm glad I took a chance on it and purchased at Whole Foods. I also purchased the Pumpkin mix but haven't made it yet. I did add toasted Georgia pecans because I like nuts in my bread. It really is delicious with a great flavor and texture and best of all, easy to make. Glad someone is trying to create bake products that are healthy and considerate of those of us that love bakery items but not the ingredients. Thanks!
callie Bozeman from jacksonville fl on Nov 30, 2014
Just blown away by these amazing mixes. Will be a loyal customer!
Jayme from Atlanta, GA on Nov 05, 2014
These are amazing! I have reactive hypoglycemia so I can no longer indulge in sugary baked goods. I wanted something sweet for the holiday season. I looked for recipes online but they were complicated and too expensive to buy all the necessary ingredients. I was so happy and shocked to find something so easy and quick to make! The second time I made them for my wedding anniversary. I made a cupcake version with sugar-free pudding filling and light whip cream with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. WOW
Stephanie from London, UK on Sep 18, 2014
The banana muffins were delicious without the 'gluten free' aftertaste some cakes and mixes have. I have a quest for gluten free food that tastes 'normal', as we can then eat as a family and not exclude my husband who is coeliac. This cake mix certainly comes into that category. Well done!
Michele from San Francisco on Sep 05, 2014
Wow! These are by far the best muffins I've had since cutting out grains -- even much better than all the ones I've made by scratch. I added chopped walnuts and shredded coconut to the mix. I also added some chocolate chips to one for my son. After eating it, he asked me to buy several pounds worth of the mix. Thank you!
Kelly Wolf from Auburn, WA on Feb 12, 2014
Ah-mazing! I've been looking for something just like this... perfect quick breakfast for my husband and I when we don't have time for eggs. Thank you!! I'll be spreading the word and trying your other mixes for sure. Again, thank you!
Jennifer Silverberg from Atlanta, GA on Jan 02, 2014
THANK YOU for your brilliant use of almonds and other whole ingredients to (finally) make a packaged mix that I can (finally) recommend!!!!!

Reviews for Chocolate Muffin & Cupcake Mix
5 out of 5, based on 6 reviews
Tori from California on Feb 21, 2015
These. Are. Amazing. Quick and easy to make, these chocolate muffins/cupcakes are moist, fluffy, and probably the nearest you can get to "the real thing," when actually, these ARE the real thing! I am very pleased with the flavor, which I easily sweetened with some honey and grade A maple syrup, and the ingredients, which are nutritious and healthy! Having tried many grain/dairy/soy/sugar free baked goods, I find this mix and recipe one of the very best. You will not regret purchasing this. Trust me.
Michelle from Atlanta, GA on Jan 20, 2015
Wow, WOW, WOW! That is all I have to say about these. I recently discovered these during my recent shopping trip to Whole Foods. They were giving out samples and while hesitant at first, I am amazed at how rich and fluffy these were. As others have said, they taste like Devil's Food Cake without all the junk! I have been searching for a brownie alternative for a few months now and after trying to make many homemade batches had finally given up. When I tried these, I knew my search was over. Thank you for making such a great product and I only hope the products continue to be made with simple and easy to read (and understand) ingredients as the company grows and more people hear about Simple Mills.
Meg from Northfield, Il on May 28, 2014
The chocolate muffins were incredibly easy to make and are delicious. I'm trying to take heavily processed foods out of my family's diet and was thrilled when my kids (ages 7, 9, 11) loved these! The smell and texture are like chocolate cake. And, the flavor is awesome; chocolate with a slight coconut taste. Looking forward to trying more mixes.
Jackie from Denver, CO on Nov 25, 2013
Wow! These are to die for! I cannot believe something so good for you can also taste so good. The ingredients are all terrific - almond flour, cocoa, coconut nectar, baking soda, arrowroot, and salt! They have a rich chocolatey flavor - almost like dark chocolate. I've been making them for breakfast or afternoon snack... although, I imagine they would make great cupcakes or chocolate cake as well! I'm going to try that for a friend's birthday coming up. One other note is like one of the other reviewers mentioned, you do have to let these cool a bit before eating them or they'll fall apart.
Anita from Honolulu, HI on Nov 09, 2013
I'm paleo and had purchased another paleo-friendly box mix product and I wasn't too satisfied. So when I found Simple Mills and looked at the ingredients, I was just jumping with joy bcs they use all paleo-friendly/paleo-approved ingredients and like their name, it was all very simple.

Mixing everything together was simple too, there was no need for me to bust out my hand mixer (and no extra clean up!!). Now I have to say, the batter looked a bit watery to me and I was afraid it wasn't going to cook right. But thank goodness I was wrong and my muffins/cupcakes came out beautifully! The apt smelled so good, I felt like I was in a chocolate factory or something. I couldn't wait for the cupcakes to cool down and I chowed down on one almost instantly, of course burning my mouth a bit but it was so worth the slight burn bcs those things were sooooo good! It reminded me of a hostess cupcake, just much taster and better for me! I seriously had to tell myself that I had to pace myself or else I'll run out too fast!

I can't wait to try the other flavors and I've seen recipes for making them into cookies, how brilliant! I'm so glad I found this company!
Suzanne from Portland on Aug 31, 2013
Goodness, this mix is delicious! I have been eating these for breakfast for a few weeks now and just can't seem to get enough. They're rich like brownies, but are made with fantastic, good-for-you ingredients. No preservatives or words you can't pronounce. And as a bonus, it's gluten-free and low-GI!

Cindy from United States on Jan 14, 2015
Absolutely incredible! I had to do a double take on the ingredients as it tastes like a "regular" pumpkin bread. It is amazingly moist and delicious! Thank you so much for creating such an amazing product!
Bonnie Dalke from Colorado on Nov 20, 2014
This is an excellent product! There is nothing second-rate about the loaves I made with this mix. I used three 2 1/4"x 3 1/2" mini-loaf pans and baked them for 30 minutes. Very tasty, nice texture.
Janette from Alexandria, VA on Nov 14, 2014
OMG!!! These muffins are amazing! I baked them with unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead of water but kept all other ingredients the same. The smell mouth watering and taste even better. I will definitely try the other mixes soon. Thanks for making such a great product!!
Sarah from San Diego on Nov 04, 2014
I cannot get enough of these muffins - a perfect pumpkin flavor, fluffy, moist, and delicious - not like most gluten-free foods. I buy these every week. Even my boyfriend who is not gluten free loves eating these.
Jen from Chicago, IL on Nov 01, 2014
INCREDIBLE! Made the most delicious pumpkin bread. I shared it with my whole family (even those who were not gluten free) and EVERYONE loved it. We're going to be having this for thanksgiving!
Katelyn from Pasadena, CA on Oct 23, 2013
These taste like they are made with fresh Pumpkin... they're so moist and fluffy... which is incredible considering the ingredients.... just almonds, pumpkin, coconut nectar, arrowroot, some spices, baking soda, and salt! And the best part in my book is that you don't get the dreaded sugar rush associated with most gluten free products. My entire family ate these up before I had a chance to have more than one. I'm going to have to try the banana mix next.
Patricia from Austin, TX on Oct 19, 2013
My family actually doesn't stick to a gluten-free diet, but I bought these mixes for their nutrition. Each pack has a ton of Magnesium, Vitamin A, and Vitamin E, which is almost impossible to find in a baked product. My entire family feels great after eating these. And did a mention taste? The pumpkin flavor is so fabulous! I can't believe how great these are - and that they're gluten free!

I tried banana muffin mix and they turned out to be very good. I will order them again!!
nancy from nashville,tn on Apr 09, 2014
The pumpkin muffin mix is hands down the very best I've ever tasted. I am in love with this product and have shared it with all my friends whose allergies collide with their sweet teeth.. Eating these muffins are a delight. Every bite feels like you are nourishing your soul. . No bloating, no sugar hang-over, no guilt
Pumpkin Muffin Mix is for sure my new best friend!
Lexie from NC on Mar 16, 2014
Absolutely amazing. Really. I cannot say enough. Not too sweet. Great texture. Good ingredients. Does not jack up my blood sugar. Completely satisfying treat.
Thank you for this! I told all my friends.
Marie from Orlando, FL on Nov 25, 2013
Ever since I went paleo, I've been looking for something to fill the baked goods void and have been pretty disappointed so far. Everything I try either doesn't rise correctly, doesn't taste good, or is too dry. But these are the exception!! Each of these mixes is makes gorgeous, fluffy, moist muffins that taste great. My non-paleo friends can't even tell these are gluten-free! And not to mention they're so easy to bake up - just add egg, oil, and water and you're good to go!
Cathy from Austin, TX on Oct 23, 2013
These mixes came fast in the mail, which was great because we had a gluten-free guest staying with us and we didn't know quite what to make her for breakfast. She loved these mixes and neither I, nor her, could tell these were gluten free from the taste and texture. Every one of these mixes turned out to be moist and rich. My personal favorite was the pumpkin, but she liked the chocolate the most. Also, the ingredients are really impressive. I didn't even realize you could make a baking mix primarily consisting of almonds. How cool!
Jen from Portland, OR on Sep 14, 2013
I cook with almond flour in my kitchen all the time, so I thought I'd give these a try. Wow am I impressed!! I can't believe how moist and how beautiful these muffins are! They're so much better than anything I've made myself. I'm going to be a long-time customer : ).

Living the #simplelife

Classic Carrot Cupcakes

By Nora Schlesinger, author of A Clean Bake

 

Call me cliché, but I strongly believe that spring holidays just aren’t the same without carrot cake. Don’t think about it too hard, because carrots are fall and winter vegetables, so it makes basically no sense, but who am I to argue with pastry tradition?

I’ve eaten more variations of carrot cake than I care to admit: cakey and dense, with nuts and without, even containing pineapple (my personal favorite). Until now, my favorite carrot cake was a tie. The first contender was from my college cafeteria. I know it sounds insane given the reputation of dorm food, but don’t judge it if you haven’t tried it. It was the cake that transformed me from a carrot cake hater into a carrot cake addict. It was that good. The other best is from Flour Bakery in Boston and if you’ve been there, no further elaboration is necessary.

But these carrot cupcakes really throw a wrench into my carefully organized hierarchy of Best Carrot Cakes. They’re so good that I made them for my brother-in-law’s birthday and he ate nearly an entire cupcake in one bite. The only thing holding him back from eating the whole thing in that first bite was that his mouth wasn’t big enough. But believe me – he tried. And my poor sister-in-law, who is a meat and potatoes girl through and through, and who thinks I only eat “weird food”,  ate two of these without even realizing what she was doing! She loved them. And I never really did have the heart to tell her that they were made of wholesome, low-glycemic, healthy ingredients. Let’s just keep that between us, shall we?

 

Classic Carrot Cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 1 box Simple Mills yellow cake mix
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • 1 cup carrots, peeled and shredded
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • ¼ cup oil
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • Your favorite frosting

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450F. Line a 12-compartment cupcake/muffin pan and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the mix, cinnamon and ginger. Add the carrots, raisins and walnuts and stir to combine.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil, vanilla and water.
  4. Stir the wet mixture into the dry mixture. Make sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure everything is thoroughly mixed.
  5. Divide the batter among the compartments of the prepared cupcake pan.
  6. Put the cupcakes into the oven and immediately turn the heat down to 350F. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
  7. Let the cupcakes cool in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
  8. Finish with your favorite frosting, or skip the frosting and serve them as muffins.

Guest post: Simple ways to get moving at work

By: Sean Griffin, Founder of Chicago Primal Gym 
Humans are meant to move all throughout the day. However, we spend just about all of our waking time sitting or generally sedentary. 

This behavior impacts every part of our functioning from our metabolism to our cognition to our physical mobility. 

It is likely that you've heard this or intuitively feel it on a daily basis. In this article, I want to share a few movements that we use at Chicago Primal Gym to combat some of the negative physical consequences of sitting. 

When we sit too much we tend to lose mobility in the hips and thoracic spine (in the rib cage region). Just as simple ingredients are so important to health, so are these simple, basic movements. If you feel locked in the up or have any chronic aches and pains, give these exercises a try throughout the day and see which ones improve the way you feel. 

======

All of these movements can be done with or without props. Click the links below for a quick video explanation!

Wall Sit with Reach
Hinge reach 
Batwing
Leg lower
Bear Crawl 
Kneeling Clean to Press


Sean Griffin is the Founder of Chicago Primal Gym. In 2013, combining his passions for coaching and business, he decided to open his own training studio. His goal was to create a holistic experience that encompasses every component of healthy and happy living. Since that time, CPG has gained two other great coaches (Grant Anderson and Joanna Silvers) and has become a strong community dedicated to self-improvement.

Cinnamon Banana Pancakes with Mixed Berry Topping

By: Amy Marx

Spring is in the air, and at Simple Mills, this means a couple different exciting things. First...BERRIES! Berries have such great nutritional value, and they add such a yummy kick to our mixes. And if you hadn't heard yet, Spring will also bring about our new packaging and new products! This recipe was created just for one of our newest and most delicious mixes...drum roll please...PANCAKE & WAFFLE! 

Once you get your hands on this wonderful breakfast dish, we invite you to get creative! Although our pancakes and waffles are out-of-this world as they are, there's always room to try something fun! This mix is not yet available in stores, but you can find it now on Amazon. So, what are you waiting for? Get brunching!

Cinnamon Banana Pancakes with Mixed Berry Topping

1 box Simple Mills Pancake & Waffle Almond Flour Mix

5 eggs

3 cups fresh mixed berries

5 Tbsp milk (dairy or non-dairy)

3 Tbsp oil (grapesead, coconut or vegetable)

1 large banana – chopped

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp ground cinnamon

Wisk eggs, milk, oil, vanilla & cinnamon in a large bowl. Add chopped banana and mix and combine until a batter is formed. Warm a frying pan to a medium heat; spoon 2 Tbsp of batter for each pancake. Cook pancakes for about 2 minutes (or until edges are dry) and flip. Lightly brown each side.

Fill a pot ¼ inches high with water. Add 2 cups of berries, bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes, scraping the bottom as needed to keep from burning. Reduce heat to low and simmer the mixture until thick. Serve pancakes with the berry sauce and top with the remaining fresh berries.
