Why not Bisquick?

When Bisquick made its debut on our grocery shelves…many cooks all over America were instant fans. That magical mix made baking biscuits and lots of other recipes simpler, easier, and quick!

My mom was a working single parent after dad died. As a latchkey teenager turned family cook I was given the fast track school of cooking. Complete with all the latest shortcuts.  🙂

Bisquick made my teenage cooking career successful. It’s easy to make Pancakes, biscuits, and casseroles with a handy baking mix. My grandma Cash’s zucchini Tomato Casserole was just a cup of Bisquick and a few add-ins away from complete! So handy.

Why do we need a Baking mix substitute?

What is in that box of Bisquick ?

That box of instant baking bliss is full of trans fats, preservatives, sugar and aluminum phosphate. All of which were once considered miraculous devices of the food industry to make our lives easy. Just a little Too good to be true I’m afraid.

The ingredients in Bisquick Original:

  • Bleached wheat flour (enriched with niacin, iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, and folic acid),
  • corn starch,
  • dextrose,
  • partially hydrogenated soybean and/or cottonseed oil, leavening (baking soda, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate),
  • canola oil,
  • salt,
  • sugar,
  • DATEM, and distilled monoglycerides.

Anytime you see the word hydrogenated; put it back on the shelf.

The fats in Bisquick are abysmal! There is sugar in there too, and preservatives. The aluminum Phosphate is linked to all kinds of neurological problems, including Alzheimer’s. Food science researchers continue to condemn processed foods.

So let’s cook from scratch using healthy ingredients. I’m excited to have a recipe now for an easy and decently healthy homemade baking mix!

I made Quick and Easy Jam Scones to try this mix out. That recipe convinced me. I never need another boxed baking mix. So yum!

Healthy Homemade Coconut Oil Baking Mix Recipe:

I LOVE coconut oil. For cooking, baking and even skin care. It’s rich in healthy properties.

Unlike some other oils Coconut oil is stable (it will not go rancid). It will stay fresh on the shelf for at least a year room temperature.

So Coconut oil is the perfect fat for this baking mix. No need to refrigerate. You can choose either organic refined or Organic unrefined coconut oil for this recipe. Refined organic coconut oil is still healthy and has no coconut oil taste.

Use any organic flour you prefer. I’m using an organic all purpose flour.

HEALTHY BISQUICK MIX-GLUTEN FREE: Use gluten-free flour blends for this healthy baking mix. 

Make this homemade Coconut Oil Baking mix gluten free! My friend used Namaste GF organic perfect flour blend. 

Natalie made the mix with her gluten free blend. She then made these quick scones with craisins and coconut yogurt to stay heart friendly. Yummy!!”

ALOS: Remember to use an aluminum free baking powder to avoid toxic aluminum phosphate in your diet!

Homemade Bisquick mix Could not be easier!

I use my food processor but you can easily mix this homemade bisquick recipe with a pastry blender. Just be careful you don’t leave chunks of coconut oil unmixed in your mix. 🙂

  • Mix these few ingredients up to a fine consistency.
  • Pour the baking mix into an airtight container.
  • Store it in your pantry At room temperature for up to 6 months.

For my first recipe with Homemade Coconut Oil Baking mix, I made a batch of Quick and Easy Jam Scones. Perfection!

I recommend making this bisquick mix recipe and testing it for your kitchen. After you decide you love this Bisquick substitute make a Quadruple batch.

Store it in an airtight one gallon container at room temperature for at least 6 months. It’s so nice to have it on hand when you are in a hurry and it lasts a long time at room temperature. Enjoy!

Do you have to melt the coconut oil before blending in the food processor?

Diane

Hi Sherrie, Do not melt the coconut oil. That will give you a gloppy mess. If your coconut oil is very hard soften it a bit until you can mix it in with a potato masher, fork or use your food processor. Pulse the food processor until the mix is blended. You don't want to over mix. Hope this helps. Happy Weekend!

Have you tried this mix with whole wheat flour? It might work with whole wheat pastry flour. Maybe I will try it. I wonder if it would work with barley flour. I have used coconut oil in my cornbread recipe and it was very good.

Hi Sue, This recipe should work great with whole wheat flour. But the recipes you use it with will be denser. Your idea to try the pastry flour grind is a good one. I have pretty good luck with that. I have never tried barley flour in any recipe so I cannot speak to that. I just love the flavor of coconut oil in my baked goods. This baking mix is a good one. I hope you try it!

I've read in several places that using coconut oil makes for a chewy, dense product. Do you find this to be true or do the baked goods turn out fluffy as with regular baking mix?

Diane

Hi Muna, I have never had this experience. I have used coconut oil in my baking in place of other oils, shortening and butter for several years with great results. We just love how it works in baked goods. The only thing I've ever read negative about baking with coconut oil is the flavor. If you don't care for the coconut oil flavor( We actually love it) try an organic refined flavorless coconut oil.
