To me, the word”diet” is a four letter word! I have never dieted and I don’t like to restrict myself when it comes to food. My philosophy on food is to eat in moderation, eat healthy foods, and eat to nourish your body. I never want to deprive myself of the foods I want to eat or crave.
Bob’s Red Mill Low- Carb Baking Mix is a great example of a healthy and nourishing way to eat muffins, pancakes, and quick breads. This mix has all-natural ingredients so that the few carbs that you do eat in this baking mix are the right kind of carbs. It is a blend of high fiber oat bran, wheat bran, soy flour, and whole grain flaxseed meal.
For my Orange Bread Recipe, I added in some freshly squeezed orange juice and orange zest. I love the addition of the bright citrus flavors with the slightly nutty flavor of the baking mix.
The first time I tested this recipe, I used less baking powder and liquid. It did not rise like normal breads and was a bit dense. I tested again and used more baking powder and more liquid. The bread still did not rise to the top of the bundt pan, but the texture was light and fluffy.
If you create your own recipes using this baking mix, I would suggest using more baking powder and adding in more liquid. They also have a great muffin and pancake recipe on the back of the package. I can’t wait to try the pancakes!
This baking mix offers a nutritious option for muffins, pancakes, and breads. Don’t deprive yourself of the foods you love. Choose the right ingredients!
