This week on CjsKetoKitchen we take a traditional non-keto recipe and turn it into a delicious meal your whole family will enjoy that’s coming on Sunday. One of the problems we had to overcome with this recipe is finding a low carb keto friendly replacement for a stable in many households “Bisquick.” I remember my Mom always kept a box in the pantry, and would use it to make all types of recipes.
Bisquick was handy but it is not keto friendly, I would also say that if you look at the ingredients its not very friendly from those on the Standard American Diet (SAD), but again, its quick and convenient
Sarah did some research and came across this Low Carb Bisquick recipe from Maria Emmerich over on her blog KETOadapted.
We did not modify this recipe except for using different brands of several of the products listed. Maria wrote a great blog post about Bisquick and why its not really healthy, please check it out.

Here are the Ingredients
2 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
1/3 cup unflavored protein powder (whey or egg white)
2 TBS aluminum free baking powder
1 tsp cream of tartar
2 TBS Artificial Sweetener (or a drop of stevia glycerite)
1 tsp Celtic sea salt
1/2 cup coconut oil or butter
Directions for Preparing
In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients together until very well combined. Cut in the coconut oil or butter until it looks like coarse meal. Store in air tight container. I keep mine in the freezer to use for easy baking options.
How to Use This Mix?
You are suppose Use this mix to replace any Bisquick and use the same amount. So if a recipe called for 1 cup of Bisquick and a egg, you’d substitute the Bisquick and use the egg. See a detailed explanation on Maria’s blog.
