Edited to add: since this post I have tested this homemade baking blend vs two others. Click to see what the verdict was 🙂
I also have a recipe to make your own sweetener that is similar to Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet. It is my favorite sweetener.
Disclaimer: I have never tried the official THM baking blend. I decided I would order it if I couldn’t come up with a substitute that I like. But I like this one.
You do need oat fiber which is hard to find in local stores. I order it from iherb. It is only $3.49 a pound. This ingredient stretches the others so that the baking blend isn’t nearly as expensive as using straight almond flour. I’ve tried my baking blend in microwave muffin in mug recipes and it worked really really well. I’m working my way through the new Trim Healthy Mama cookbook and tweaking as I go. So far I’ve loved everything except the Cry No More Brownies. I could still taste the okra even after they were chilled. But the texture was perfect. With this homemade baking blend. Try it out and let me know what you think!
EDITED 12/16: The price of oat fiber has gone up at iherb. Since I can now get almond flour for $5 a pound at costco and sometimes for $4 a pound at jet.com I’ve been using almond flour more. I like the delicate texture of the almond flour. The prices for many grocery items are cheapest on jet. It’s worth it to take a peek.
Combine 1/2 cup each of almond flour, coconut flour, oat fiber, and ground golden flax. Add 1 tsp. gluccomannan.
Done! Money saving and super easy. Feel free to double, triple, quadruple..
