Low Carb Bake Mix

Print Friendly

My favorite bake mix is from Jennifer Eloff’s site, Splendid Low-Carbing.

Here is the specific recipe from her site that I prefer:

Lower-Fiber Low-Carb Gluten-Free Bake Mix (with flax meal and whey protein) – option #2 (tested)

Great results – tastes good!  The flax meal is to mitigate any dryness in the baking caused by the whey protein, so don’t leave it out.  It does the trick!

1 3/4 cups almond flour

1 cup certified gluten-free oat flour

1/2 cup vanilla or plain whey protein

2 tbsp flax meal

1 tsp Xanthan gum

Yield:  3 cups, 1/4 cup per serving

128.7 calories; 7.1 g protein; 8.0 g fat; 5.3 g carbs

I use this recipe all the time. I’ve made so much of it that I don’t even have to look up the recipe anymore. I’ve used it in a variety of applications and it works very well. I use vanilla protein powder when I am using the bake mix for something sweet, and plain if I am making a savory dish. I usually make a double batch and store it in a leftover protein powder container or a canister.

  1. This is really awesome, Anna! So cool that this bake mix is being used. If you have a couple of great recipes, send them my way and I’ll include them with credit given and your blog mentioned in the next Low-Carbing Among Friends Cookbooks. Find my email under my profile on my blog. :)

  2. I am interested to know if you are on Atkins or what low carb you used. Please let me know
    Thank you

  3. I wanted to make the chocolate brownie cake. Do you think Jennifer Eloff’s other bake mix would work? It has almond flour, coconut flour, oat flour and xantham gum? Or do you think the flax and whey protein are important to that particular recipe?

    Thank you so much for your time! I really enjoy your site!

    • Hey! I use Jennifer’s bake mix often. I’ve not tried it with this particular recipe, but I think it would work. If you try it, let me know how it turns out.
      Thanks,
      Anna

  4. Is there no baking powder in this? thanks

    • No, there isn’t baking powder in this. The recipes you use this in will call for the bake mix and baking powder/soda.
      Thanks!

  5. Any idea if Oat Fiber could be subbed for Oat Flour in this baking mix recipe? The reason I ask is Oat Fiber has 0 Net carbs per serving, while Oat Flour seems to be fairly high in carb count.

    • I hate to guess since I haven’t tried it myself. I would suppose that you could probably substitute that, but you might need more liquid added to the recipe you’re making. Let me know how it works!

  6. Hi Anna! I love your website and I’m so inspired! I wanted to start baking with your recipes but I’m not a fan of EZSweets or any type Sucralose products. Does stevia work the same way? Thank you!!

    • I have actually moved more toward using erythritol and stevia recently. It works well. In any recipe I have that did call for ezsweetz, 24 drops equals a cup with the particular kind I had. You should be able to figure an equivalent with the type of stevia you use. Hope this helps!

  7. Have you tried sugar twin in any recipes. I have some and would like to use it up.
