This is nice to have on hand for making quick biscuits, shortcakes, or cobblers. You may substitute non-trans-fat shortening for the butter. It's like making your own standard mix with the addition of healthful, high-fiber whole-wheat flour.

Be sure to keep your baking mix in the refrigerator. If you are going to leave it unrefrigerated, leave the butter out until you are going to use it. To make biscuits or shortcakes, mix 3 cups baking mix with ⅔ cup whole milk, heavy cream, or buttermilk. Knead 10 times on a floured surface, roll to ¾″ thickness, cut into rounds, and bake 12–15 minutes at 400°F.
