Gluten-Free Biscuit Mix
The gluten-free biscuit mix was created for those who can’t eat wheat. White rice and garbanzo bean flour work to yield a hearty and delicious batch of biscuits in this baking mix. Use gluten-free biscuit mix to bake superb biscuits, shortcakes, pancakes or even pie crust.
How to Make Gluten-Free Biscuits
Ingredients: 2½ cups biscuit mix, ½ cup shortening, ¾ cup water or milk.
Directions: Place biscuit mix in a medium bowl. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, cut or rub in shortening until the mixture resembles a course meal. Some pieces of shortening will be larger than others. Add the liquid and stir until evenly moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead briefly. Roll out to ½ inch thickness and cut out biscuits. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake in a 350°F oven for 20-25 minutes.
For pancakes: Ingredients: 2 cups water, ¼ cup vegetable oil, 2 tbsp. sugar, 1 egg, 1½ cups biscuit mix. Directions: Place biscuit mix into a medium size mixing bowl. Combine in another bowl the egg, sugar, vegetable oil and water, blend well. Pour liquid into wheat-free biscuit mix and whisk until just mixed. Option: fold in fresh, frozen or drained canned blueberries. Spoon onto 375°F griddle, as pancake rise and bubbles appear flip over; grill till lightly golden brown.
There are approximately three cups per pound.
I am not a celiac, but have problems with flour itself and need to limit my consumption of it. I also have dietary restrictions, and cannot tolerate brown rice, and cannot have sorghum, or psyllium. Many of the commercial GF flour blends/baking mixes contain these ingredients. The nuts.com GF Biscuit Mix does not, and produces great biscuits and pancakes, and, I'm told by other reviewers, many different baked goods. I visit various GF blog sites looking for recipes, and many of them steer you onto their baking mix-which I invariably cannot have, and which is always pricey. They also claim their recipes will not work with other blends, and always warn to stay away from products containing chickpea flour as they taste "beany". The GF Biscuit Mix contains chickpea flour, and I can't detect any "beany" taste at all. Both taste really good to me. To put it nicely, I think these people are full of hot air. And now, I've looked up my recipe for chickpea fries, and I'm making some! (Potatoes are another thing I can't have.)K., Santa Maria, CA
I made cinnamon rolls and they tasted great, gluten free and no oats such a win, win!Karen, Milford, ME
Haven't used it yet but like all the rest of the shipment, everything is well packed and fresh appearance. Should save me a lot of time trying to make my own gluten free flour which never turns out right.Richard, Leetonia, OH
