Gluten-Free Bisquick Review


A few weeks ago while I was shopping for baking groceries at Target, I stumbled upon the new Gluten-Free Bisquick. I didn't even think twice, I just grabbed it to give it a try! It's main ingredient is rice flour and, I gotta tell ya, I don't like rice flour very much. I feel that it gives everything a very gritty texture that bothers me when I eat it. So I was not expecting to like the outcome, but it turned out I really liked what I made with it!


First, I made waffles exactly following the recipe on the box. They were great. Surprisingly light and fluffy. I got 5 small Belgium waffles out of it and was very pleased! They were fast to make and really good!




Then this afternoon I wanted to try the biscuits. I have to tell you that the thing that I was not happy about was the quantity of mix. I had used 1 1/3 cup of mix for the waffles and needed 2 cups for biscuits. There was only a cup and a little extra left after the waffles so I made half a batch of biscuits. I think this is a bit of a rip off! There should be enough mix in there to make at least 2 DIFFERENT ITEMS!!!

The biscuits did turn out very well though, the whopping 5 of them it made!


They were very light and fluffy which I found really impressive.

I believe the box cost me around $6 at Target (sorry, I have no idea where my receipt is and I've learned with gluten-free shopping to not really look at the price tag or else it gets depressing!). So I'm not sure if $6 for 5 waffles and 5 biscuits is worth it, but it definitely tasted good. I am really impressed that it has a good texture considering that it's mostly rice flour.

Overall, just be aware that there is not very much mix inside of that box, but that you will probably be pleased with the results if you do buy it!


  1. I got it and made pancakes that were not very good. They didn't mix well and took forever to cook and then weren't good. The box only contains half of what it should. The serving size is 1/3 cup and there are "about 11" servings according to the box. To make the math easier, if we take "about 11" to mean 12 and then divide by 3 we get 4 cups. I made a double batch of pancakes which requires 2 cups. That is all that was in the box!!! There should be "about 4" cups and there are only 2.
    This stuff is so different from real Bisquick they shouldn't even put Bisquick on the box.

  2. I liked the pancakes I made with the GF mix, but it affected me the way regular pancake mix does. Within 15 minutes i was bloated and running for the bathroom.
    Red Mill gluten free baking mix does not affect me this way.
