Carb quik substitute?

I do not have any carbquik and am making sausage cheese balls for a Thanksgiving thing tomorrow. Is there ANYTHING I can get at a grocery store or somewhere tonight to subsitute for Bisquick? I fear not

I found this on another board. Hope it helps.

5 c almond flour
2/3 c whey protein isolate
3 Tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
2 Tbsp splenda, granular
2 tsp salt
1 c lard (if you watch your transfats use butter)

Mix all dry ingredients together. Sift them if you have one. If not, just mix up well with a wire whisk. It does the same thing. Break in lard (or butter) until it looks like coarse meal. Store in airtight container. I keep mine in the freezer.

Brookjay: In your recipe you have:

1 c lard (if you watch your transfats use butter)

Lard DOES NOT have transfats

What are Trans Fatty Acids?

They are man-made or processed fats, which are made from a liquid oil. When you add hydrogen to liquid vegetable oil and then add pressure, the result is a stiffer fat, like the fat found in a can of Crisco. Trans fats are also called hydrogenated fats.

Just don't want anyone to think they have to throw away their lard!

Some lards are hydrogenated... another case of having to read labels.

This is really helpful as I avoid wheat. Is there anything else I'd have to add when using this to sub for Carbquik in a recipe?

What about if using this in place of regular flour?

Thanks in advance.
