Find the new and improved version of my Splendid Gluten-Free and Low-Carb Bake Mix over here. It helps to step back for a while and then go back to one's work and see things from a fresh perspective. I read and reread my notes and comments and there it was staring me in the face!! When I'm overly excited and nervous, I can't see the forest for the trees, if you know what I mean and that was pretty much my state of mind when I was having trouble finding a viable and good gluten-free and low-carb bake mix. Even although the carbs per 1/4 cup go up 0.4 g carbs, I think it is worth it for the benefits one reaps. For me, taste, quality and mimicking the real thing is of utmost importance and if we have to sacrifice a few carbs, so be it; that is my opinion .... however, for those who disagree, the old bake mix will work in all the new recipes as they are interchangeable, so not to worry. In most cases, the carbs in a recipe will never be more than 0.4 grams more and usually only 0.1 or 0.2 grams more....worth it? Yes!
In addition, I give another interchangeable gluten-free and low-carb bake mix option for those who like a little bit of extra fiber and who like the coconut flour in baking.
