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,
- 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. 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:
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!
