Homemade Whole Wheat Bisquik Mix

I love making things from scratch, even the convenience things.  I enjoy making things a little healthier and cheaper.  I found a recipe here that I liked and that I've tweaked as I've used it.  It was easy and worked great so why not keep making it.

I like using Bisquick because it is great for so many things.  Pancakes on Saturday mornings, of course.  Tasty cheesy-garlic biscuits with dinner.  Sweet.  A favorite baked egg recipe from my childhood, awesome!  Using my homemade Bisquick in all three.  Seriously cool!

So over the next few posts I will post recipes for all of the above.  Super sweet!  Let's start.

Copycat whole wheat Bisquik baking mix

Homemade Bisquick Mix

3 cups whole wheat flour
3 cups white flour
3 Tbsp baking powder
1 Tbsp salt
1 cup shortening

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl.  Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Store in an airtight container.

So now you have the basic mix.  Pretty easy, right?  And a heck of a lot cheaper than the real stuff.  So here's the bonus recipe for the day.
