I’ve been working hard on creating the perfect homemade baking mix. This morning I tested out three different combos in a muffin in mug recipe. All three rose, looked pretty, and were tasty but in my opinion there was a definite winner of the bunch. I labeled all of these as THM S because they have coconut or almond flour which are S ingredients. They might possibly be used in E or FP settings in small amounts.
#1 Original. This was my first try mimicing the ingredients in the THM brand baking blend:
1/2 cup each almond flour, coconut flour, ground golden flax, and oat fiber. Plus 1 tsp. gluccomannan. THM S.
#2 Nut-free Economical. Without the almond flour this comes out to the cheapest per pound. THM S.
2/3 cup each coconut flour, ground golden flax, and oat fiber
#3 Local. You should be able to find all the ingredients for this in your local supermarket. THM S.
2/3 cup each almond flour, coconut flour, and ground golden flax
I tried each of them in the same muffin in mug recipe (cinnamon maple – yum!) this morning.
There was a definite winner. Can you guess which one?
The Local blend was my favorite. At first I thought I was tasting the ground flax in the other blends but once I tasted Local I realized it wasn’t the flax it was the oat fiber. All of them were yummy but the Local blend had a better mouth feel.
