Finally! A healthy baking mix to keep on hand for last-minute baking. Whole wheat flour is a whole grain and flaxseed adds fiber and good omega-3 fats.
Add flour, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar to a large bowl. Whisk to blend.
Using a pastry blender or 2 butter knives together, blend butter and coconut oil into dry ingredients, until coconut oil is the size of large peas.
Store in a large jar or in a plastic zip-top bag in the refrigerator for 2 weeks, or freeze for several months.
Baking Mix Recipes:
Stir in the following ingredients, just until batter is moistened.
Kefir Pancakes: 1 cup baking mix + 1 cup kefir (or buttermilk) = 8 pancakes (3-in diameter)
Banana Pancakes: 1 cup baking mix + 2 mashed bananas + 1/3 cup milk = 8 pancakes
Cranberry Scones: 1 cup baking mix + 1 (6-oz) container vanilla Greek yogurt + 1/4 cup dried cranberries. Bake at 400-degrees-F for 14-15 minutes. Yield 6 scones.
Almost any other baking mix recipe found online can also be used.
Whole wheat pastry flour is preferred as final baked goods come out a bit fluffier. If using regular whole wheat flour, use 1 tablespoon more liquid in the recipe and expect a bit denser product (which sometimes preferable – as in brownies or bars!)
Store mix in the fridge in a glass jar (or zip-top plastic bag) for up to 2 weeks, or freeze for several months.
