Nicole's Naturals Gluten-Free Waffle & Pancake Mix Giveaway

13. February 2015 07:54 by jennifer | 15 Comments

As part of my affiliation with Fit Fluential, Nicole's Naturals was kind enough to send me a package of their gluten free, wheat free, soy free pancake mix. If you know the #TampaTrio, then you know that they LOVE LOVE LOVE pancakes. Seriously, it's like their favorite food.

My library schedule has been crazy lately. I've been working all over the south county region, filling in as the "in charge" librarian since we are short staffed. Normally I make the trio pancakes on Saturday morning, but I had to work this past Saturday, so I made them on Sunday instead.

I'll admit it...the directions while easy to understand were not something I was used to. Typically with my pancake mix I just add milk, mix and go.

These directions called for butter, eggs, and milk and/or water. Easy enough. I did need to add more milk than what the recipe called for because I like my batter a little thinner. 

The trio LOVED the blueberry pancakes I made them. LOVED them. My husband also had two pancakes (with eggs) and he said that they were very tasty, too!! I used the entire container that they sent, and we had enough pancakes left over for the next 2 mornings, too. That made breakfast super easy on this hard working mama!


Nicole's Naturals wants to give one of YOU your own gift pack so you can try out their delicious product.  Your gift will include everything you see in the photo below:

  • 1 can of Nicole’s Naturals GF Mix
  • 1 small container of syrup

  • Nicole’s Naturals apron

I'll choose a winner from the comments on Friday February 20. Good luck!

It's no secret that I'm a HUGE fan of The Walking Dead. In my mind I often play out what I think I would do if something happened to our planet that left zombies roaming around. Do you wonder about things like that? If you do, then this run is for you!!   Face your fear as you run from the undeadthrough woods and hell on earth. Zombies are ready and ravenous for those that fail.    The choice is yours:      -Run from the Zombies (as a runner)    &nbs... [More]
