Are you out of THM Baking Blend??
If you have read my glowing REVIEW on the Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend, you know I highly recommend it. It is, truly, sheer AWESOMENESS in a bag! Really.
Due to its versatility and immense popularity, this Baking Blend has been, on occasion... <whispers>... "Out Of Stock". This could, potentially, send a person into that deep, dark, inky-black blackness of despair -- especially if they have plans for "RunAmok Mama's Strawberry Shortcake" or the "Luscious Lemon Cake", found on page 289 of the new Trim Healthy Mama Plan!
Trim Healthy Mama took a lot of time and expense to develop this exceptional product; as a proprietary blend, some of the ingredients were processed in such a way as to produce a "lighter" product, fitting the "FP" category. *If you are following Trim Healthy Mama, you will know that "FP" stands for "Fuel Pull", and simply means an ingredient or food item which is low in both fats and carbohydrates.
Because this product is so sought after, I regularly see people share "copy-cat" recipe versions of the Baking Blend. Unfortunately, most copy-cat recipes cause confusion and some contribute to weight-loss stalls as they are, nutritionally, way off the mark from the real Baking Blend.
I am sharing a recipe here that I think you will all enjoy. Now, as a disclaimer, this is NOT the recipe for "THE" Baking Blend... however, for someone who wants to try their hand at making their "own" baking mix, this is pretty EPIC. Trust me.
By way of comparison, the taste and texture of my Quick Mix is pretty close to the Baking Blend. From a nutritional standpoint, definitely closer than most of the recipes floating around Facebook - so, if you are out of the Baking Blend, or waiting to place an order, this is worth a look.
DISCLAIMER: As written, this fits as "FP". If you use other ingredients, brands, amounts, or sub with other products, you may be changing up the fuel, thus the category this falls into.
I do have a couple ingredients listed in my mix that are not found in the Baking Blend -- These are added as they enhance the nutrition-level of my recipe here, without compromising the taste or texture of the mix. A "win-win"! If you prefer not to add them, my Quick Mix is delicious without them as well - but, obviously, the mix will have different nutritional values.
2 C Trim Healthy Mama Oat Fiber
1 C Swanson's 100% Certified Organic Coconut Flour
2/3 C Bob's Red Mill Golden Flax meal, finely ground
7 TBS THM Integral Collagen (or Custom Collagen)

In a large container bowl, carefully mix all ingredients together. Store in an airtight container; I prefer glass. I use a larger, re-purposed glass peanut butter jar. This could be stored in a cool cupboard for a few weeks... but for freshness and food quality, I prefer to store my Quick Mix in the fridge. *I am a little freakish about this sort of thing.

Precision-run households may find my title, "RunAmok Mama" to feel a tad alarming, so I'd like to offer a quick assurance that my life is more an exercise of controlled chaos than sheer pandemonium!
