    Gluten-free Bisquick...

    Shop Now
    Okay, let me start this by saying I am very against packaged food of any kind and especially big food manufacturers like Betty Crocker, but we had brunch at work and my co-worker made waffles using gluten-free Bisquick and I had one as kind of a cheat. It was really good! Here are the ingredients:

    Ingredients: Rice flour, sugar, leavening(baking soda, sodium aluminum phosphate,monocalcium phosphate), modified potato starch, salt, xanthan gum.

    Not too bad, not great, but not so bad for a kind of cheat. What do you think about using this every once in awhile?

    Could one of you great primal bakers out there come up with a homemade version of gluten-free Bisquick?

    I have a box a family member gave me and it's great for when you are traveling or super busy and don't have time to make 11 ingredient paleo pancakes for breakfast. I used some of mine to make an apple coffee cake type thing over Christmas.

    I use a gf flour mix of equal parts:
    brown rice
    sweet rice
    tapioca starch
    ----
    I would source aluminum free baking powder if possible...and you can add 1/2 tsp. xantham gum for each cup of flour used. That being said, this wouldnt be a sub for bisquick, just a sub for reg flour! Works great though!

    We use GF bisquick for waffles at least once a month. Relax and remember your 80/20 rule

    This is exactly what I was thinking

    using guar gum instead of xantham gum gives same results and is much cheaper

    Well, since there are no Paleo/Primal police you are free to do as you wish. However, I wouldn't eat it. Ever. I quit eating gluten a couple of years ago, and that's when I decided that all the gluten free crap out thee wasn't really any hea;thier. That's when I switched to primal. I'm gonna come back and post an awesome grain free waffle recipe. I've got a bunch.
    It's true. You are what you eat.

    Personally I wouldn't eat it. Since I'll have to also add syrup (sugar free) to the pancakes, it will just become too much.

    I've found coconut flour recipes work great to get baked goods when you must. And it's expensive enough to discourage me from making baked goods very often.

    2nd ingredient is sugar. I prefer to save my carb calories for chocolate and wine.
