I've been dismissive of the recipes for faux-Bisquik baking mixes, mostly because I don't use Bisquik iteself.  But I tried this one, and we love it for waffles.  The basic recipe makes enough for three batches of waffles. 


2 -1/2 cups whole wheat flour  (soft)
2 cups unbeached white flour
1 cup instant nonfat dry milk
3 tablespoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup oil
Directions
1. Mix the dry ingredients together, using a whisk. Add the oil and cut it in with two knives or a pastry blender  OR, you can mix all these ingredients in a large food processor. Store in a tightly closed container in the fridge or freezer (or maybe on a shelf in cold weather if you are sure you will use it up quickly).  I package 2-cup portions in reusable pint deli containers, so my kids can easily make a batch of waffles.

2. MAKE WAFFLES:  (8-10 squares waffles)

2 cups Healthy Whole Wheat Baking Mix
2 TBS oil
1-1/3 cup milk
1 egg
 For dessert waffles, add 2 TBS sugar

Combine and beat until smooth. Cook like any other waffles.

3. MAKE PANCAKES: (not tried yet)

2 cups Healthy Whole Wheat Baking Mix
1 cup milk
2 eggs

Combine and beat until smooth. Cook like any other pancakes.  Variation: for thinner pancakes, use 1 egg and 1-1/2 cups milk.
4. MAKE MUFFINS: (not tried yet)

2 cups Healthy Whole Wheat Baking Mix
3 TBS honey
1 egg
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or raisins

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray muffin pan with Pam or similar. Mix all ingredients at once and stir until thoroughly moistened. It will be lumpy.  Fill muffin cups 2/3 full and bake for 20 minutes. Cool on a rack.
