I love developing and creating my own recipes but sometimes I want something quick and simple! Seeing photos of different Good Dee’s Low Carb Baking Mixes all over Instagram convinced me to give the brand a try.
Naturally, I had to tell you guys about it.
All of the thoughts posted here are totally my own. I bought both baking mixes with my own money and even if I hadn’t, I would still give my totally honest opinion.

About the company
A woman named Deana started a company called Good Dee’s. She started out at home making her own low carb cookies.
If you follow her on social media you’ll quickly learn that she is a mom while also being an entrepreneur. #girlboss
What really sealed the deal for me when it came to buying and trying her products was how interactive she was with those that buy from her. She’s always sharing Keto dieter’s Good Dee’s purchases and creations in her Instastories.
What I bought
One of the most raved about mixes Good Dee’s has is the brownie mix. However, my Keto brownie recipe is everything I could ask for in a brownie so I decided not to spend the money on a premade brownie mix.
Now, you might not know this but cornbread is literally one of my favorite Southern foods. Nice and warm out of the oven with lots and lots of butter.
I’m saying this so you won’t be surprised to know the Corn Free Bread Mix went into my cart on sight. The Chocolate Snack Cake always looked delicious on Instagram so I decided to give that a try as well.
Good Dee’s Ingredients
Good Dee’s baking mixes don’t contain any traditional flours in order to be low carb and Keto friendly. (Duh). The cool thing about this is that they’re also gluten free!
These baking mixes also don’t contain maltitol. Maltitol is one of those sneaky “sugar free sweeteners” I mention briefly in my Keto Diet Basics Guide.
Maltitol spikes blood sugar and causes upset stomachs in most when eaten in large amounts.
And let’s be real. Sometimes we eat large amounts.
Erythritol and stevia sweeten the baking mixes, depending on which one you buy. The “corn” bread had only stevia while the chocolate cake had both.
The Keto cornbread is made with almond flour while the chocolate cake uses sunflower seed flower. I thought that was interesting and unique!
Some other ingredients include:
- cocoa powder
- baking soda
- flax seed
Ingredient spotlight: What is IMO fiber?
So one ingredient in these mixes that might seem a little wonky is IMO fiber. IMO is short for Isomaltooligosaccharide fiber.
Say that even one time really fast.
IMO is a non digestible fiber that’s found in some commercial products like protein bars. IMO is generally used to improve texture and stability in baked goods.
Low Carb Chocolate Snack Cake Mix Review
I’m going to kick off this review with the chocolate snack cake mix. I liked the packaging a lot. It was easy to read and it even had a seal on it to keep the powdery contents contained.
I ended up making 7 cupcakes instead of the recommended 8″ cake. Cupcakes are easier and more practical for meal prep which is why I went that route.
The baking mix gives you the option to make the cake two ways: one version uses three eggs while the other uses four. I used three eggs for mine but I am curious how four turns out.
I baked them for about 20 minutes and removed them from the oven when they started smelling nice and chocolatey. That was a nice little surprise!
The cupcakes did cave in a bit once they were cooled but that’s nothing a little icing or Keto ice cream couldn’t fix.
Overall the cupcakes were good but they really weren’t stellar. Once the cupcakes were completely cooled they did take on a slightly grainy texture, which I suspect is from the sweetener. It’s not a total deal breaker but something to keep in mind. I didn’t really experience this in my Keto Red Velvet Cupcakes.
The cupcakes smelled intensely chocolatey but they were missing a little flavor for me. My mom was a huge fan of them though.
Low Carb Cornbread Baking Mix Review
Though the outside packages were almost identical, the cornbread mix did not have a zip closure at the top. I’m not sure if this was because they were transitioning from one type of packaging to the other. It might have been done on purpose.
The cornbread baking mix suggests baking the cornbread in a cake pan. I made 6-7 muffins with mine though, so I could just grab and go. I say six or seven because the first time I made these muffins I got 6 and the second time I got seven.
Obviously this cornbread didn’t taste exactly like corn. There’s no corn in it! But it did taste really amazing. The texture of it was really great, the almond flour gives you that familiar cornbread bite.
The cornbread muffins do have a slight after taste from the sweetener but they’re still incredibly delicious. The double sized muffins I made still had only 2g net carbs!
