Homemade substitute for Atkins Bake mix?

That stuff is sooo expensive! Is it possible to make a homemade version?

On this board somewhere I read someone using Almond flour mixed with some baking powder (no idea of the ratio) as a sub for the bake mix.

This is a knock off of Atkins bake mix. Cheaper, and tastes about the same.

BAKE MIX

1 C soy flour
2 C soy protein isolate
2 TBL baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 TBL granular Splenda

Mix well and then sift together. I store mine in the refrigerator and use in the same proportions as any recipe calling for low carb bake mix. I usually use the bake mix as a slight addition in other recipes

3 carbs per 1/2 C

Hi Maven98, Where is this thread supposed to be? The "eat you heart out aunt jimima" I've always thought there had to be better but even after I have made the subtitutes I've found, What do you use them for? Every recipe I have, seems to be "if you make it just a little different it doesn't turn out. I haven't tried to figure...if I want to make this cake what do I leave out of the recipe when using the mix. I have very little time and less money to waste all those ingredients. Thankfully DH will eat anything.

It does taste like wallpaper paste unless you knwo what to mix it with. Unfortuneately the Atkins people have not figured out what their own mix really work with - - some of us have. Check out the pancake thread.

Here are the recipes that are in the "Eat your heart out, Aunt Jimima" thread.

I'm sorry I didn't just post these here instead of giving you a thread to look for. It's just so much easier when someone sends a recipe.

I've only used the bake mix in the pancake recipe listed below. They are great!

Make your own 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.

3 carbs per 1/2 cup serving


Pancakes

I came up with these and for the first time I have enjoyed pancakes since June last year. They look, smell, cook, and taste like the real thing! My husband says I'm a genious! LOL They really are wonderful, try them and left me know what you think.

Sherrie's Buttermilk Pancakes

1 8oz Pkg cream cheese
3 eggs
3 tsp Splenda
1/4 cup Atkins Bake Mix
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup buttermilk

Beat cream cheese with mixer until blended smooth, add the remaining ingredients and let sit for 5 minutes before using. Preheat non stick pan to med/high heat. Spray pan with a light coat of butter flavored non stick spray and pour in pan about 3 tbps of mix. I made them about 5 to 6 inches across. Be sure to let bubble up all over just like the flour pancakes before turning!

Eat your heart out Aunt Jemima, these are as good as the real thing!

Makes 10 large pancakes @ 1.7 carbs per pancake

Thank you very much, Melanie! The pancakes sound delicious. Now, does anyone know where one would buy soy protein isolate?

If you email me, I'll tell you sites where you can get non GMO soy protein isolate. joenleslie@wadsnet.com

Or, check your grocery or health food store.
