Has anyone used this stuff? It says it has 90% less carbs than regular baking mixes like Bisquick. And I want a damn biscuit, or some good pancakes, y'all!

I bought some but as I learned more about it, I chickened out of using it. Go look in our recipe section. There are some very good recipes there that should do for you.

I tried Carbquik in the beginning, but didn't like the odd flavor, so I haven't used it in years.

As Pat says, check our recipes board - there are some good low-carb examples. One of my favorites is Gizmo's biscuits.

I liked it and it did not taste odd, to me. My only problems were a) consuming the entire batch of cheesy biscuits (nary a spike, but ... ), and b) it still has gluten.

I am not sensitive to gluten ... YET. However I eat meat analogs with gluten in them, I do not want to consume huge amounts and BECOME sensitized (and LADA does tend toward it!), so ... I avoid using carbquik in everyday cooking.

I've used it on occasion it worked fine for me as well. My favorite was chicken and dumplings with it, big skillet full of chicken and gavy, lay a big layer of the cheesy biscuit mix on top and bake the heck out of it.

I'm certainly not planning on using it often--the price will prevent that from happening, LOL! It's just that I want something like real bread. It's like fakin' bacon---I used to eat it and that was fine, but it isn't anything like real bacon. Same thing from the pancakes I tried today. They just didn't cut it.

Which recipe did you use? I'm not a particular fan, but I've tried some and found some pretty good when I'm in the mood.

I made plain biscuits with it and they weren't nearly as light as normal biscuits, but if you were really missing them, maybe. I too would like a better recipe using the flour.

Something my husband found on his phone, so I can't link it. It had egg whites, psyllium, flax meal, protein powder, cinnamon, cream of tartar, baking powder, and water. It smelled good, and it even looked like a pancake looks when it's cooking, but the texture was ALL wrong. Eggy. No bueno, IMO. They edges were passable but as soon as I got to the middle, well.....

I love this stuff -- I make pancakes with the waffle recipe (use no sugar Torani Caramel syrup to sweeten & add nuts or seeds for fiber, great with butter & peanut butter, too). I've done the cheesy biscuits recipe, with added minced onions, making SMALL (1.5") biscuits for home & parties.

Carbquik seems too expensive to use often, but my family & friends scarf up the goodies & my blood sugar stays nice & calm! Keeps me from feeling 'deprived', too. As I see it, good value for $$.

Netrition has a better price than other sites.
