One of my favorite things to do is figure out how to make something from scratch that you normally buy in a box. As a working mama I need the convenience of quick meals and sides but I don’t want to compromise on health.
Enter homemade Bisquick.
Bisquick is great for making dinner biscuits, dessert shortbreads and even pancakes. The problem is the extra, nonessential ingredients in box of Bisquick don’t mesh with a real food or natural foods diet.
So I decided to make my own.
Here’s how you can too:
- 6 Cups Spelt or Whole Wheat Flour
- 3 Tablespoons Aluminum Free Baking Powder
- 2 Tablespoons Sucanat, Rapadura or other natural granulate sugar (Optional)
- 1 Tablespoon REAL or Celtic Salt
- 1 Cup Butter, cubed
First, sift your flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl to remove lumps. If you’re using fresh ground you can skip this step and just stir the flour, salt and baking powder together. Next, using a pastry blender incorporate the cubed butter until the mixture resembles small crumbs.
Store the mixture in the refrigerator or freezer in an air-tight container and use whenever you find an awesome recipe that calls for Bisquick.
