Gluten Free Bisquick Review

Well, I have to give the gluten free Bisquick an A-. The only thing that really disappointed me about it was that it only had 2 C of mix in it or 1 lb. If you want to make biscuits, for example, the recipe calls for 2 cups-the whole box. The waffle recipe calls for 1 1/3 C and the pancake recipe for 1 C. I made the pancakes and it only made 5 small pancakes as seen in the picture below. I don’t know why, maybe it was just me, but they seemed to take a long time to cook and they were very thick. And they certainly don’t look as pretty as the pancakes pictured on the box, but they have professionals for that right? I’m definitely, as you have probably noticed, not that great of a photographer.  But I still had to give them an A because they tasted very good and buying a box of gluten free mix at Wal-Mart is very convenient.
My box of Bisquick cost just under $4. Personally, I prefer to order the bulk almond flour on-line for around $5 lb because it takes forever to run out of, tastes great, and the health benefits of almond flour are tremendous (I’ll be posting my biscuit and pancake recipes soon). However, there is something to be said for running to Wal-Mart and picking up a box of gluten free mix for pancakes the next morning. Oh and by the way, I used soy milk instead of milk like the box called for and I also used Earth Balance (vegan) butter so they would be casein free as well.

  1. This is just the Bisquick I need when my great grandson comes to spend the night and wants pancakes for breakfast. If they were a little thick, I’ll just add a little more of his soy milk. Thanks for the info. Great Grandma

  2. Thanks for the info!

  3. I have found that soy milk can sometimes have adverse reactions with gluten free mixes such as this… being really thick and weird. Have you tried rice milk? It is a lot thinner (more like a skim milk) and I have found that it is my favourite for baking. (You could try half soy and half water even!)
    I realize this post is from almost a year ago.. just thought I would add my two cents just in case. :)
