(Newest bake mix - only 2 Ingredients)
UPDATE: I am hoping I can still use Bake Mix 2 as long as my husband can tolerate the small amount of coconut flour in it...he was fine with it for years, so time will tell....this is another alternative, as a result of a recent mini-crisis with my husband declaring that the coconut flour was making things worse for him re IBS. He was eating my carob chips (known to make IBS worse for some people), so I think it was that! This Bake Mix 3 is lovely and easy, but it is a titch carbier and one has to use `1/4 cup more of it to substitute for white flour, so that is why I am reticent to let go of Bake Mix 2.
My husband declared that the coconut flour (fiber!) in my bake mix was making his IBS worse, so it was back to the drawing board for me! I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause someone, but know this…Bake Mix 1 and Bake Mix 2 are fully interchangeable (no additional bake mix required) and Bake Mix 3 can be substituted for either of them as well, as long as you add 2 tbsp to 1/4 cup (60 mL) more bake mix depending on whether you are substituting for less than 1 cup (250 mL) bake mix or more than 1 cup (250 mL) bake mix. The good news is that Gluten-Free Bake Mix 3 is so much easier to prepare…whole cups are used and it looks like gelatin is very rarely needed. I will indicate the few recipes where it is required, but if you want to use it (it is so healthy and great for the skin…replaces lost collagen), I am going to suggest using half the amounts that we used before. It is always added to the wet ingredients.
You can make multiples of this recipe....so easy and less likely to make mistakes as it is all in whole cups. I don't weigh anything when it comes to my bake mixes, to be honest, but I will put the approximate weights there next time I go to make a batch.
With almond flour (not ground almonds/almond meal) the yield is 3 1/2 cups. Make sure to measure the oat flour as I've instructed with previous bake mixes as well. Almond meal will produce 3 cups of bake mix and the carbs will thus be higher. So, that is why almond flour is preferable for this bake mix. In reality, I did the analysis for my older bake mixes using almond meal (as that is what I used to use - homemade ground almonds), but if you used almond flour in them....the carbs were actually 4.8 grams instead of 5.7 grams. This bake mix is a tiny bit carbier, but divided by the number of servings, that doesn't amount to too much. Still, if you want to use an older bake mix, please simply substitute it and read how to do that (you will need less of the previous bake mix in my newer recipes - please scroll down to the Helpful Hints). On the positive side, this bake mix will not cause tummy troubles for anyone (my husband included) and tastes even more like the real thing!
