What is Carbquik?

Carbquik is a low carb baking mix shortcut that’s used in all kinds of recipes. Muffins, biscuits, cinnamon rolls, banana bread, pancakes, and pizza crust are just a few examples of baked goods you can make with Carbquik baking mix. It’s used similar to how you’d use Bisquick. The main ingredient in Carbquik is carbalose flour.

What is Carbalose flour?

Carbalose is a substitute for all-purpose flour and has roughly 80% less carbs. It’s made mostly from wheat but because most of its carbs come from fiber, the net carbs are very low. (Fiber amounts are subtracted from total carbs in an ingredient or recipe to get the net carb amount).

The most popular low-carb substitutes for all-purpose flour when baking is almond flour and coconut flour, which work really well in most cases. I use both of them myself. But carbalose flour is the closest you’ll find to “real” flour, however, and it’s the easiest to substitute in recipes.

Is Carbquik okay for Keto?

Here’s my opinion from someone who’s been eating low-carb and Keto for a long time. Carbquik is perfectly fine for keto in moderation. Keto is meant to include whole foods and limited processed foods. Having said that, there’s definitely a place for Carbquik in my keto diet.

My favorite way to enjoy Carbquik is a biscuit with softened, salted butter. One Carbquik biscuit has just 2g net carbs! When I first starting limiting carbs in my diet, bread, biscuits, and other baked goods were what I missed the most. Being able to enjoy one guilt-free is what made it easier for me to stick with it.

How many carbs are in a cup of Carbquik?

According to My Fitness Pal, one cup of Carbquik has 6 net carbs. Here’s the nutritional breakdown:

  • Carbs: 48g
  • Dietary Fiber: 42g
  • Sugar: 0 g
  • Fat: 18 g
  • Protein: 18 g
  • Sodium: 630 mg
  • Calories: 270

Can you replace flour with Carbquik?

You can replace flour with Carbquik in most recipes. Very occasionally the liquid amounts in the recipe will need to be adjusted slightly, however. There’s no tried-and-true formula that applies to all recipes, so unfortunately you just have to give it a shot and hope for the best the first time around. I’ve found that all but one of the recipes I’ve substituted it with – and I’ve made a lot – turned out the same as the original.

Can Carbquik be substituted for Bisquick?

Carbquik makes a great substitute for Bisquick. I use it in all the time in these Bisquick Sausage Balls for an easy appetizer. Or a snack. Oh, who am I kidding? I’ve eaten those bad boys for dinner.

Does Carbquik go bad?

Always try to use Carbquik by the sell by date on the box. Ours has never lasted longer than a few months since we use it in so many different low-carb recipes.

Carbquik can be frozen to extend its shelf life. Use it straight from the freezer although I like to give it a few minutes to come to room temperature depending on the recipe.

Where to buy Carbquik

Carbquik is available on Amazon, which is where I buy it. It’s also available at Walmart and online at Netrition. The Carbquik website also has a search function to find local independent retailers near you.

Tips for using Carbquik for the best results

  • Just like when you measure regular flour, spoon Carbquik into a measuring cup versus scooping it out with the cup itself. Never pack it into the measuring cup.
  • Don’t be afraid to add a little more Carbquik if your mixture is too soft, or a bit more liquid if it’s too thick. Many things can affect this, such as humidity,
  • Don’t over-mix! This is true for most, if not all, baked goods. Over-mixing can cause the end result to be dense and heavy.
  • Unless specifically stated in the recipe, mix your batter or dough just before baking. Leaving it sit out too long can cause your baked goods to not rise properly.
