Faux Atkins Bake Mix

I notice there is alot of recipes that call for Atkins Bake Mix and I came across this recipe to replace it. So I was wondering if any of you have tried it and what are your opinion ?

Faux Atkins Bake Mix

1 cup soy flour

2 cups soy protein isolate

2 tablespoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons Splenda

Sift together then store and use as you would Dr. A's. It's much cheaper and things come out about the same.

Here's the one I use, since I won't use soy (due to allergies, and soy should be avoided by people with thyroid problems):

Auntie, thanks for your version too. I was wondering if you ground your own almonds. I can't seem to find any almond flour in my neighborhood. All I have is a coffee grinder, will this work?

Hi Bobbi!

A coffee grinder works great to make your own almond meal. The only places where I have been able to find it have been Save On Foods in their bulk section (it's a divisioin of Overwaitea), and my favorite kitchen supply store.

Note, it works the best if you can get the slivered almonds, since a lot of the work is already done. I get the blanched ones, since I'm not crazy for the skin in my baking.

I use my coffee grinder for almond flour.

I buy whole, blanched almonds then toast them in the oven for about 10 minutes or until they darken a little. This brings out their natural sweetness.

When cooled, grind a handful at a time in your coffee grinder but pulse it. Don't just run it or you can go too far and end up with a paste not a flour.

Almond flour made this way is SO much better than the store bought ready ground stuff.

Try this-

After baking then, put them in your freezer for several hours. That way, when grinding them, they don't get pastey as fast.
