Carbquik: Is there a recipe?

Is there a recipe to make Carbquik using Carbalose?

Thanks so much,

Grammy G

I rather doubt you would be successful with this.

guessing your underlying question is about making a good flour mix, I suggest you look at the recipe threads for that popular blend Ouizoid came up with. I can't keep up with what they call it at any given time, maybe Fantastic Flour Mix now? tons of recipes, very low carb, much better tasting than carbquik or carbalose.

Thank you Raven. I have made the Fantastic Flour mix and liked it but my husband did not. But, he has liked some of Kevin's recipes using the Carbquik and Carbalose. I was hoping to find a way to use Carbalose only to save money.

I certainly thinks it's possible but..........would take a lot of attempts to get a formula you're happy with. Carbalose flr is $8.99, Carbquik is $11.99 both for 3 pds. I looked at the carbquik label and certainly think the formula is doable but I wonder if one can actually save any money making a homemade "carbquik"? With having to purchase any of the ingredients that you don't have, and if you can come up w/ something you like, I think it would probably take 2 yrs to get your "pay bk on ingredients" before you would be able to see a "profit fr. making your own carbquik".

Now don't let my post discourage you fr trying, because 5 cents saved is 5 cents saved.
But for me personally, I had rather try to save money somewhere that is easier.

Have you tried Kevinpa's 3rd and last flour mix that he says works in all applications?
Recipe is.........1/2 cup carbalose
1/4 cup wheat protein isolate 5000
1 Tbs wheat protein isolate 8000
1.5 Tbs almond flour
1.5 Tbs Hi-Maize resistant corn starch 260
1.25 tsp not/Sugar
He says this can replace his cookie / cake flr mix.

In reading here and researching, I wanted to see if there were any replacements that I might have for the wheat protein isolates.

Here's my changes to Kevin's recipe.

1/2 cup carbalose
1/4 cup wheat protein isolate 5000 (I use Jarrow unflavored whey protein isolate)
1 Tbs wheat protein isolate 8000 (I use vital wheat gluten)
1.5 Tbs almond flour
1.5 Tbs Hi-Maize resistant corn starch 260 (netrition doesn't carry the Hi Maize brand, I use the resistant corn starch that they carry, Life Source I think?_
1.25 tsp not/Sugar
replace not/Sugar with Dixie Diner thick it up

I much prefer this for biscuits than the carbquik mix recipe. Look at Kevin's cheese biscuit recipe to use the above, can leave the cheese out.

I've used the above mix in pizza crust, cookies and biscuits and have been amazed at the results. I've grown tired of almond flr in cakes and will try a cake recipe w/ this mix, this wk. Hope this info helps

JJJ'sMom,
Thank you SO much! I'm going to try these for my husband in the morning.

How would you use these for cookies? What kind of cookies have you made with this recipe?

Would love to hear how your cake recipe comes out.

I really appreciate your help!

Here is a youtube link to a terrific lady who explains her recipes soooo well.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDF7...nI67KTUuAWnPGi

I made her choc. chip cookies subbing in 1 1/2 c. of kevinpa's flr that I tweaked.
And only using 1 c. almond flr.
My sweetner of choice was 1/2 c. xylitol and the sugar free choc chips by Hersey.

Her recipe is great tasting but being able to add in "flour" will give the cookie more
substance, not so soft. If you haven't tried her almond flr biscuits (video at the link), it's a must try. Very suprising texture, you'll be pleased.

JJJMom:

I can't wait to watch that video! I never thought of checking out YouTube for LC baking videos. I love this forum and learn so much from all you ladies!
Thank you so much. I am hoping to do induction for 1 week before company arrives and then I hope to make some of those cookies!

Thank you,
GrammyG
