As many of you know we are on a healthy eating journey and I have been scouring the web for alternatives to many of our favorite recipes. The hardest thing for me was finding a baking blend that we liked. Many of the blends were either too expensive or just didn’t have a texture that everyone seemed to like.
After a little bit of trial and error, we have found a blend that works well for us and we have been testing this out with some of the Trim Healthy Mama recipes that call for their baking blend. This recipe has worked well for us so far but if I find anything that needs to be tweaked I will update the recipe. You may want to try making a half a batch when to give it a try before making the big batch that we make here. I also found this great container to hold my big batch. (You can also find it and most of the ingredients below at some Walmarts or just add them to your grocery pickup order so you don’t have to search for them.) 😉
All-Purpose Baking Blend
- 4 c. oat fiber (not flour)
- 4 c. coconut flour
- 2 c. golden flax meal
- 1 c. almond flour
- 1 1/2 c. collagen
- 2 c. whey protein powder (We use the vanilla and it hasn’t affected anything flavor-wise.)
- 2 T. Glucomannan or Xantham Gum
- 2 T. MCT powder (optional)
- 4 T. psyllium husk flakes (optional)
Combine all the ingredients together in a container with a tight-fitting lid (or a big mixing bowl) and shake or mix thoroughly.
We have been using this as a 1:1 ratio for recipes calling for the THM Baking Blend.
Note: You can also add 1/2 – 1 teaspoon Sunflower Lecithin for every 1 cup of flour used in your baked goods. Dissolve the powdered lecithin (or use the oil) in the liquid ingredients before mixing together.
