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 a 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 granulated 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.
