No one needs to argue the convenience and ease of pre-made baking mixes. Mixes are typically going to be faster than something from scratch and often saves the day when you’re running low on time or flour. Those attractive qualities can make the mixes quite enticing… but they really don’t excuse or override the unnatural ingredients list. Luckily, the popular Bisquick mixture doesn’t have to be your only option! You can easily make your own baking mix – complete with healthy flour and sugar!
The homemade prepared recipe doesn’t only produce better tasting treats, but is filled with ingredients that you choose. Having this stuff stocked in your freezer adds back the ease as well. Something I particularly love about this is that by keeping it in the freezer, you’ll always have ice cold butter and flour to work with. Ice cold ingredients are the secret to extra light and fluffy products. You’ll already be prepped to create those perfectly flaky and delicious treats! This simple mix is naturally sweet and naturally healthy to produce great, freshly baked goods in minutes!
Natural Homemade Baking Mix
Print Recipe (adapted from allrecipes)
5 cups White Spelt Flour
1/4 cup Baking Powder
2 Tablespoons Powdered Honey
1/2 teaspoon Pink Salt
1 cup Unsalted Butter
*You could make this a gluten free mix by using your favorite combination of gluten free flours and 1 tablespoon of a binder, but I chose to not do this as many pre-made gluten free mixes are already healthy and taste great! It can also be more cost effective to just buy the mix instead of buying the separate flours and binders to make your own.
Mix together flour, baking powder, powdered honey and salt. Cut butter into small cubes and add to the mixture. Stir until butter is nice and crumbly and everything is combined. Use as you would any baking mix. For an easy biscuit recipe, add 1/3 cup milk to every 1 cup of mix. Mix everything together and cut out or roll out biscuits. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 6 weeks.
