I must admit that for a long time I thought Bob’s Red Mill baking powder was Paleo. I don’t know why I thought this. Clearly, if you read the label, it has corn starch – which is definitely not Paleo. So I searched and searched to buy Paleo baking powder so I could tell my readers what baking powder to buy. But I can’t find any commercial Paleo baking powder. It think it’s because it’s #1 so easy to make yourself and #2 doesn’t last very long. In fact, most Paleo baking powder recipes say to only make enough for one day or to only store it for a few weeks.
If you are reading this post, it’s probably because you are making one of the recipes on my blog that calls for Paleo baking powder. What I recommend is that you make just enough for the recipe you are making since it’s easy to make and doesn’t last that long. Since you will use different amounts for each recipe, I think this simple recipe will make it easy for you to create any amount of Paleo baking powder you want. Please note that there are several different ways to make your own baking powder. The basic idea is to mix baking soda with an acid. Please choose ONE of these recipes, based on what you have on hand. I have ranked them in order to try.
1 part baking soda + 6 parts vinegar or lemon juice
