Homemade Coconut Oil Baking Mix is shelf stable. This mix works as a one to one substitute for Bisquick and provides a much healthier baking mix option. Use organic flours, coconut oil, and aluminum free baking powder to bring this mix up to it’s highest health potential.
Why not Bisquick?
When Bisquick made it’s 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. I am permanently burned out on fish sticks, cubes steaks, and T.V dinners:)
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.
What is in that box of Bisquick ?
That box of instant baking bliss is full of transfats, 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,
- partially hydrogenated soybean and/or cottonseed oil, leavening (baking soda, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate),
- canola oil,
- 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. The food science research continues 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. They convinced me I never need another boxed baking mix. So yum!

Healthy Homemade Coconut Oil Baking Mix Recipe:
As you know, 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 (will not go rancid). It will stay fresh on the shelf for at least a year room temperature! Coconut oil is the perfect choice 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. I’m pretty sure a whole wheat flour or gluten free flour would also work but I haven’t tried them.
GLUTEN FREE UPDATE:
I have a friend that made this homemade Coconut Oil Baking mix gluten free! She used Namaste GF organic perfect flour blend.
Here is her comment to me on Facebook. Natalie said: “I made the mix with gluten free blend and then your quick scones with craisins and coconut yogurt to stay heart friendly! Yummy!!”
So you can use gluten-free flour blends for Homemade Coconut Oil Baking mix! Happy days!
Remember to use an aluminum free baking powder to avoid toxic aluminum phosphate in your diet!
Could not be easier!
- Mix these few ingredients up to a fine consistency.
- Pour the baking mix into an airtight container.
- Store it in your pantry 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 recipe and testing it for your kitchen. If you love it as much as we do. Make a Quadruple batch and store it in an airtight one gallon container. 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!
