You’ve likely seen Simple Mills’ packaged snacks and baking mixes online and in stores. But are they healthy or delicious? Read on for my honest Simple Mills review.

If you’re a busy mom, you know that baking mixes and packaged food are great for convenience, but their ingredients are typically not very healthy. Well, it doesn’t need to be that way.

Being on a special diet makes a busy mom even busier, so I have to do whatever I can to save time in our whole foods special diets kitchen.

One thing I do all the time is to have easy alternatives to packaged foods that I can make myself like:

Easiest Coconut Milk
Easiest Almond Milk and
Homemade Chocolate Chips,

but there’s only so much I can do and sometimes I need something on the fly.  For those times, having a few mixes in the pantry can be a real sanity saver.

Most mixes are full of high glycemic flour, lots of sugar, and additives, but Simple Mills is different. They have amazing, paleo-friendly grain-free mixes made with super nourishing ingredients and wholesome snacks too.

The Company

Simple Mills was founded in the U.S.A. in the Chicago area (where I used to live) by Katlin Smith. She started the company to bring wholesome foods to families, and she’s done an amazing job.

The company started very small (my site was one of the early ones to review her products) and now Simple Mills is available basically everywhere with a huge product line.

Wholesome Ingredients

No grains in these mixes – just almond flour.  And the almonds are blanched to remove the skins, where the phytic acid is located.

Coconut nectar for sweetening.  Table sugar has a glycemic index of 65, but coconut nectar’s is a mere 35, which makes it easier on your blood sugar and better for those who struggle with candida.

Arrowroot – I actually stayed away from arrowroot for years, thinking it was just a non-nutritive ingredient (though I do use it in my Aluminum & Corn Free Baking Powder). However, I’ve been learning that it has gut-healing qualities that make it a great addition to these mixes.

Cocoa – the cocoa used in Simple Mills’ products is produces on small farms that practice sustainability, plus it’s fair-trade and rainforest certified.

Celtic Sea Salt – Celtic sea salt is an unprocessed whole salt full of over 60 naturally occurring minerals

What’s NOT in Simple Mills?  NO refined sugar, NO high-glycemic flours, NO gluten, and NO genetically modified ingredients.

Almond Flour Crackers

Simple Mills almond flour crackers are by far the most popular item that Simple Mills makes. And for good reason. 

They’re delicious.

They aren’t really “Costco Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers” since you can buy them in a lot of places, but they’re thought of that way due to how many people get them at the big box store.

Simple Mills Product List

Since I first wrote this post, Simple Mills has expanded their product line to include loads and loads of great new products. This isn’t the full list by any means, but it gives you a good (gluten-free) taste of everything they have to offer.

Banana Muffin Mix
Pumpkin Muffin Mix
Chocolate Muffin Mix
Sweet Thins (which is basically their name for graham crackers)
Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
Nut Butter Sandwich Cookies
Soft Baked Cookies
Pop Mmms
Breakfast Bars
Pancake Mixes
Seed and Nut Thins (ingredients include watermelon seed flour!)

And now I’m hungry.

Great Taste

I have to say, these products are very very good.

We love their grain free muffin mixes (Pumpkin, Banana and Chocolate Chip), but these two new mixes, Focaccia & Sandwich Bread, and Chocolate Chip Cookies, are amazing.

When I made these, they were gone in a flash.

You can see the now-gone Focaccia Bread on Instagram, and you can follow me there too, if you’d like :).

The Focaccia & Sandwich Bread is a really nice mix since it can also be made into dinner rolls.

Look at how gorgeous these are!

Which Mix do YOU Most Want to Try?

By the way, I was given several mixes to try and was compensated for my time to write this post, but that in no way affects my opinions about the product. I’ve only done two sponsored posts in the history of my blog. This is one of them. I only promote things that I like.
Simple Mills is simply GREAT!

  1. How about. using monkfruit as a sweetener. Somewhere in all these websites regarding simple mills. I read that the sweetener used in these products is a 35 on the glycemic index. Monkfruit is zero. It would lower the number of carbs, no calories, 300x sweeter than refined sugar, and no aftertaste.

    1. Monk fruit is great. I am just seeing it in more and more products. Sorry the giveaway is over. Did you mean to leave this on a different post?

  2. This is the best thing in this century for people who are gluten free and need lower carb, I never buy any of the gluten free packaged items because they are full of potato starch, rice flour, corn flour, and no doubt GMO, etc and being diabetic those are just not something I can use. Thanks so much for sharing this!

  3. Hi! I just went over to Amazon and bought the Sampler pack–just because I trust you. Ha Ha I’ll let you know what I (and my family) think. Thanks much!

  4. Thanks for the opportunity Adrienne! I have tried other mixes, with results that vary, but for the most part don’t buy pre-made \ boxed mixes. It is nice to have a quick and easy mix on hand, that won’t compromise my healing!

  5. This was my first entry into one of your drawings. Of course the very first entry I typed only one letter for my email and accidentally submitted that. Anyway of fixing that? These look amazing and would love to try them 🙂 Thanks for such great information and recipes and all of the hard work that goes into it!

    1. If you go back to the widget you should be able to edit the entry – let me know if that doesn’t work = thanks :)!!

  6. I would be pleased to try any of the mixes since I have seen the posts and all of you have commented how good the mixes are. My husband can eat all of the ingredients, and that is so rare that all of the ingredients are okay for him to eat.

    Thank you for posting the coupon for 10% off. (I’m behind on reading my e-mails with all that has been happening here this week)

  7. I recently tried this brand’s pumpkin muffins and boy are they out of this world good! I am very impressed with the ingredients used. These muffins are my fall holiday pumpkin fix now! I am dying to try the other products in the line. If the chocolate chip cookies are anything like the pumpkin muffins, I am in trouble!!

  8. These are so yummy. Serve them all the time to friends who are not paleo or grain free and they love them. These are a staple in my family now!! Favorite is the chocolate muffin/cupcake made in mini muffin tins for a little sweet treat!

  9. When you say that special diets are time consuming, you are so right. Since I’ve cut out all processed foods in our house, I find I’m spending way more time/energy/effort every day to get us fed. All this, just to avoid the toxins in foods. It’s crazy. These mixes sound like the thing to have on hand. Going to Amazon to have a look at Simple Mills products right now. Thanks for the share, Adrienne. You do important work, good sister.

    1. I know. It’s hard and adds to stress which is hard. Thank you!!! I am trying to do what helps. It’s hard on all of us :).
