Ready for these hearty, guilt-free treats? Let’s get started.
What is Carbquik?
Carbquik is a biscuit baking mix much similar to Bisquick, but with relatively fewer carbs.
This healthier alternative lets you enjoy dishes such as pancakes, waffles, and biscuits, but minus all the carbs.
Carbquik’s primary ingredient is carbalose flour, which is mostly made from wheat.
It tastes and works exactly as all-purpose flour does, but contains about 80% fewer carbohydrates.
Because they have similar ingredients, you can use Carbquik in place of Bisquick to make these scrumptious dishes and desserts.
Can You Replace Flour with Carbquik?
More often than not, yes. Some recipes will yield a slightly different result, though, you might need to do some trial and error.
How Many Carbs In a Cup of Carbquik?
My Fitness Pal says that a cup of Carbquik contains 48 grams of carbs.
For comparison, one cup of all-purpose flour contains 95 grams. That’s almost half less!
What Does Carbquik Taste Like?
Just like Bisquick!
Tips & Tricks for Cooking with Carbquik
- Measure Carbquik accurately using a kitchen scale for best results. If you don’t have one, use the spoon and level method – spoon the mix into the measuring cup and level it with the back of a knife. Packing it into the measuring cup directly will give you more than what you need.
- If your batter is runnier than it’s supposed to be, add more Carbquik. If it’s too thick, add more liquid.
- Don’t over-mix, or your baked goods will be dense and dry. This tip is true for all baked goods.
Now that we have all that covered, without further ado, here are 20 delicious Carbquik recipes that will fill your belly and brighten up your day.
