Thanks Randella. I know for the pioneer pancake mix for me it's the texture, the texture is light yet...filling. The pancakes made with bisquick are heavy and hmm hard to describe but I don't like their texture. When I buy the baking mix I will let you know though.
The Low Fat Biscuit Mix (6-02 or 7-02} is the only mix I use. I divide the recipe in half so I can make it in my food processor or the blender and I make many batches to have on hand. I also replace 1/3 the flour with White Whole Wheat (King Arthur or Trader Joe's) and it works wonderfully. But even the recipe as is, all All Purpose Flour, the nutrients and calories are so very close to the low fat Bisquick. Almost identical. So fresh and very thrifty to make.
I've seen the low fat Pioneer brand at my Walmart here in CA. I wonder what makes it superior to Bisquick, according to many reviews I've read from all over?

I have really been liking it. I'm not sure about your area, but I find it most at Walmart. However, it varies where they keep it. Sometimes the pancake mix isle by the cereal and other times in the baking mix isle by the cake mixes, other times by bisquick. lol haha We also I hate to admit love their gravy mixes. lol haha But, their pancake mix is the best mix I have ever had. I usually don't like mixes but I love theirs!
Thanks Sara that sounds good. I really like Pioneer brand pancake mix, I've been considering using their low fat baking mix as well to replace the low fat/heart smart bisquick. Have you or any one else on the group used it yet?
I love quiche's that call for bisquick by the way!
