    Oh my! I can not wait to make this mix, as my 18yo son is gluten free, and needs to learn how to fix his own goodies. I will mix it all up in my Kitchen Aid with the paddle, and store in baggies in the freezer, with the instructions printed out and taped on the bags…I will also tape these recipies printed out on the door of the kitchen cupboard so he does not have an excuse for not knowing how to use the stuff!

    The pancakes turned out great and very fluffy. It’s so nice that this mix can be prepared in advance. It makes for a quick breakfast! Thank you!

    Is there an ingredient I can use in place of the nonfat dry milk powder? My son is allergic to milk, egg, wheat, soy and peanut, but loves waffles…. commercial waffles are out of the question, they all contain soy. I have good substitutes for eggs, but don’t know what to sub for the milk powder.

      You can substitute Vance’s Darifree for best results – other alternatives are to omit the milk powder altogether and use a dairy free sub in place of water when you make the pancakes. In November our pancake mix should be back in stock and that stuff is awesome (dairy free, too!) – Our family is in the same boat, so right there with ya!

    Someone told me that I could substitute tapioca starch/flour for the dry milk powder. I did that and made biscuits and they turned out wonderfully. We can’t use Darifree because it contains corn, so just wanted to pass on the information to anyone else in the same boat!

    all is now right in the world! :) This has been our biggest need… i can’t wait to get my flour this week and start making a load of mix! We eat waffles or pancakes most mornings and the kids will be oh so excited we finally have good tasting GF waffles, etc!
    Thank you!

    I can’t say enough good things about it.

    (I am totally disgusted with Betty Crocker’s “gluten-free Bisquick” because IT ISN’T A BISQUICK substitute. It doesn’t contain any shortening, and you have to add that ingredient yourself. And for that, they charge a ridiculous amount of money, AND you can’t use it in any traditional Bisquick recipes.)

    Naomi’s Bisquick Substitute Master Mix IS a Bisquick substitute. It does work in Bisquick recipes, and the results are indistinguishable from “the real thing.” I’m so glad I didn’t throw out all my little Bisquick cook booklets, because I’m using them again!

    Thank you (again), Naomi!!!!!

    I wonder what shortening is preferred for this. ?

      you can use any – I use Spectrum organic, but good Ol’ Crisco will work as well :-)

      • lolo 28. Aug, 2012 at 1:19 pm #

        Thank you. Do you think coconut oil would work, or is it not firm enough? Maybe part Crisco and part coconut oil?

          coconut oil would work fine – a little finer texture to the finished biscuits but still good!
