The company, the creation of best buds Susie Miller and Lizann Anderson, offers a range of gluten- and GMOfree cooking and baking mixes, all made from whole grains. Choices include cornbread, brownies, pancakes and waffles, and a variety of cookies. (A tasting by MIM+E of the cookies and pancakes found them to be delectable.)

Among Friends sells its mixes online and in retail stores across the country, including Kroger, Target and Whole Foods.
