Low Carb Bisquick | Quick Easy

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

Easy to make Low Carb Bisquick

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.

  1. Sorry probably a dumb question, for biscuits would you just add milk or (almond milk) to this mix? Thanks again, So happy I found your website/youtube, wanting to try every recipe NOW lol 🙂

    1. Hi that’s not a dumb question. We would not sure regular milk because of the higher carb and sugar content, and we are not sure how almond milk would respond in a baking recipe. We would suggest using Heavy Cream or possibly half-and-half or a combination of the two.

    2. Just as a side note, we have a Biscuits and Gravy recipe here and in that recipe we show a method of making biscuits just using almond flour and cutting in butter. We are also planning on just releasing a video on how to make keto low carb biscuits. That video is probably a month out from being released.

    1. Just use it like you would with regular Bisquick. I use it to make waffles, although you do have to kind of experiment with it. It should work similarly as regular bisquick.

    2. Hi Lynn, the idea behind this mix is that it can work as a replacement for recipes that call for Bisquick. On our blog we’ve got several recipes that we’ve made using this mix. We used it in a Cheeseburger Pie Casserole, and a Keto Monterey Sausage Pie.

  2. I make your Key Lime cheesecake, it was delish and I’m going to try you keto Bisquick. It looks good
    Thank you so much. Janet Donais

  3. I was trying to make the keto bisquick to make zucchini pie. However, when I added the coconut oil, my ingredients turned into a cookie dough type of consistency instead of crumbly. My z pie recipe also calls for an additional 1/2 cup of oil. Z pie is almost a soupy recipe until cooked. Should I have melted the coconut oil before measuring out the 1/2 cup? Maybe I have just skipped the oil for the ketoquick and used avocado oil instead. I am puzzled why you add the coconut oil to the dry ingredients and not just add the oil to the recipe after if you are storing it .

    1. The original recipe was created by Maria Emmerich….we’ve never had any issues with it, or storage, although we do keep it refrigerated. It’s not going to be EXACTLY like bisquick, or similar, because wheat flour is a much finer texture.

  4. This looks really good! I would imagine if its used like Bisquick than I could just pop over to their website for mixing type instructions as per which ever recipe i’d use? You have really truly put in some time and effort on giving us options that mimic or adhere to the principles of some awesome staples for so many of us!! Thank you so much!

  5. Finding your YouTube Channel was truly a blessing. I feel confident in your abilities. I know if you post something, it is going to be good! Thanks for all the time and effort you place in developing and perfecting your craft! You are a treasured keto foodie.
