Gluten free cooking can be a real challenge and it can also be expensive! When you’re buying special products for the “gluten free” feature on top of buying for “convenience” the price really starts to add up. If you’re careful when shopping though you can often find basics like good all purpose gluten free flour on sale at the grocery store. A good regular all purpose flour can be turned into so many things and the same goes for a good gluten free all purpose flour. One of my favorite things to make and keep on hand when I find a good price on gluten free flour is Gluten Free Bisquick. Just like the boxed Bisquick my mom always kept on hand, I can grab my pre-made mix and make a batch of pancakes, waffles, or biscuits without so much measuring.
Homemade Gluten Free Bisquick Recipe
- 5 Cups Gluten Free All Purpose Flour – Make sure you use a flour you’ve used before and know performs well. Not all gluten free flours are created equal!
- 3 TBSP Baking Powder – I use corn starch free to make this corn free also
- 2 TSP Salt
- 1 Cup Shortening – You can use regular or butter flavored depending on your preference
Sift together the flour, baking powder, and the salt.
Next, cut in the shortening. This can be done with a pastry cutter, your hands, or with a blender.
I use my Ninja for everything. It works great for this! Because this recipe makes a big batch, I did this in two portions then stirred it all together.
Once the mixture is combined well transfer it to an airtight container. It will keep for several months, no refrigeration needed! Just use a label to keep track of when your batch was made. You can print our label and tape it to your jar!
One of our favorites is pancakes. It’s actually what’s for dinner tonight! Just mix together 2 cups of the Homemade Gluten Free Bisquick Recipe, 1 cup of milk, and 2 eggs for amazing gluten free pancakes. You can also add a little sugar to the batter if you like your pancakes a bit sweeter.
