Make your own Carbquik?

Is there a recipe to make your own carbquik? I've not found one yet but am hoping someone can post one. I used to make the faux Atkins bake mix, but this new product seems to be more useful. TIA

I dont think it would be possible because they use a patented process to make the flour LC. If you bought their carbalose flour however, I think you'd just need to add salt, baking powder and some shortening to make it like carbquick.

I don't have a recipe but I bet even if there is one it would be more expensive than just buying the mix. JMHO. Order some from Netrition

I think you could make one if you're pretty inventive.

You can buy low-carb flour online. Chef's Lite makes a good type that I have tried. It's possible you could use another type of bake mix, you would just have to experiment with it and see.

And you would need some dry cream to replace the powdered milk that is in the bisquik mix. And maybe baking powder.

If you go to google, you can do a search for a homemade bisquik recipe and you can see how it's made and then take it from there.

Let me know if you come up with a good one. I'm always trying new experiments.

The recipe that sherrie has posted for your own type of atkins bake mix works very well for me in everything I've made.

I don't think this is actually a recipe for Carbquick - there is no soy in it. This looks more like a recipe for the old Atkins Mix.

Make your own Carbquik?

I used the recipe and then made pancakes with it! My family LOVED them! Instead of using maple syrup on them I used agave nectar and butter. My family said they couldn't taste the difference between them and regular pancakes!

I thought they came out great too! The only warning I'll say is that they need to cook longer and on a low setting to cook thoroughly and be careful flipping them because they didn't stick together as much as regular pancakes do (even though I used eggs).

Next time I might even try adding yeast or more baking powder to see if I can get them to be fluffier.

Anyway, thanx for the recipe! Judy, thanx for your post also so I'm aware that there is no soy in carbquik and thanx for your welcome
I think the recipe, whether it's Atkins mix or Carbquik, is a delicious and healthy way to stay within a low carb/low glycemic index diet! Thanx again to SugarBabi!

There is a recipe for homemade carbquik. I'm sorry I can't remember who did it.She used Kevins cake and cookie flour mix and then proceeded to make it.

Thanx

Thank you Rosethorns. I've also been losing weight using a low glycemic load diet and wheat flour (which is Kevin's mix) is a high glycemic load and outside of my diet. But the carbquik works cause there are very little carbs in it as far as I understand.

If there are high carbs (or high glycemic load) I hope you or anyone else who knows will let me know.

All the best,

Rose
