What is in 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 other recipes simpler, easier, and quick. But that doesn’t mean it’s the best for your health.
That box of instant mix is full of trans fats, preservatives, sugar and aluminum phosphate. When you look closer you find a long list of low quality fillers, processed sugar and low quality oils. Below we are sharing some of the worst offenders from the bisquick label.
- Bleached wheat flour (enriched with niacin, iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, and folic acid)
- Corn starch
- Partially hydrogenated soybean and/or cottonseed oil, leavening (baking soda, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate)
- Canola oil
- DATEM, and distilled monoglycerides.
The aluminum Phosphate is linked to all kinds of neurological problems, including Alzheimer’s. Food science researchers continue to condemn processed foods, so it is a great idea to remove them from your diet.
We made Quick and Easy Jam Scones to try this mix out and they became a favorite in our family. The results were fluffy and flavorful scones that delivered healthier fats and slower digesting ingredients that are satisfying and sustaining.
Healthy Homemade Coconut Oil Baking Mix Recipe
Coconut oil is a favorite in our family, we use it for cooking, baking and even skin care. It’s rich in healthy properties, digestible fats and a dependable shelf life.
Coconut oil is the perfect oil 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 which some folks prefer.
Use any organic flour you desire. We use organic all purpose flour.
You can use gluten-free flour blends to make this healthy 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.
Remember to use an aluminum free baking powder to avoid toxic aluminum phosphate in your diet
How do I make a Homemade Baking Mix?
Making your own Homemade Baking Mix is simple and a very quick process that combines flour, aluminum free baking powder, coconut oil and sea salt. Blend the ingredients together in your food processor or by hand with a pastry blender. Use it to make scones, pancakes, biscuits, cornbread and more.
- 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.
Is Baking Mix the same as Pancake Mix?
A basic Baking Mix is not exactly the same as a ready-made pancake or waffle mix. Baking mixes have little to no sugar so that they can be used for savory recipes. You can absolutely use them as a base for sweeter baked recipes, you will just need to add some sugar, or another sweetener of your choice, in the mixing process.

A box of Bisquick has been sitting in the pantry and I never use it because I know what's in it. But, without a replacement, it sat there taking up space. I dumped it and will definitely try your recipe. Thanks for the work you do. it's helpful and necessary.

Another quick way of working the coconut oil into the dry ingredients is a simple hand mixer on the low setting. Do it right in a mixing bowl and you won't have to clean up the food processor!

Do you have to melt the coconut oil before blending in the food processor?
Friday 28th of February 2020
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!
