Nili’s Baking Mix

This baking blend as created by Nili Barrett.   I happen to think it compares to the THM baking blend quite wonderfully,  so, with her permission, I thought I’d post it on my blog since she doesn’t have one.

* Update
I personally have had great result switching out the collagen powder for whey protein powder in equal parts.

    1. It’s a term used within Trim Healthy Mama, that means low fat, and low carb. Fuel Pull

  1. I am allergic to nuts. Can I substitute something else for the almond flour?

    1. You can use seed flours such as chia, sunflower or pipita in place of nuts but the last two can create a greenish product due to chlorophyll.

    1. In the question above you said you can NOT use xanthum in place of Gucci-is this a mistake?

      1. nope, not a mistake……I’ve tried this only once and it turned out terribly. I had always worked from the understanding you could do this until I put it to practise and found I’d made a triple batch that was almost unsalvageable. So I strongly suggest purchasing the Glucci specifically for this recipe.

        1. I’ve heard people have had success with using Psyllium husk. I’m not sure of the conversation amount though.

    1. It’s been a long time since this comment! But I figured this might help someone – I have read of folks substituting ground psyllium husk for oat fiber in other low-carb baking recipes, and while I have not tried it, I can see how they might behave similarly in a baking blend. Psyllium husk is usually pretty easy to find locally (look for it with laxatives!), unlike oat fiber. I can buy it ground in the bulk bins at my local Sprouts.

  2. What could you replace the collagen with? It’s the only thing I don’t have πŸ™

      1. I have replaced it with protein powder before to with great results.

      1. Awesome! one more question. I wanted to make a gentle sweet copycat from pyure and xylitol. Have you any idea what the measurements might be? I have all the ingredients and on a budget.

        1. if you plan to make savory creations with the blend, vanilla isn’t the taste you’ll want. If you only plan to make sweets it would be ok.

    1. Not really that I know of Ashley. However to could search for a different mix that doesn’t use it. You’d likely have good luck that way. πŸ™‚

      1. You should be able to sub flax for this. It will just be a darker color; nutritionally it is the same.

  3. Can I grind old fashinon oats and use that as oat fiber? thanks πŸ™‚

    1. It does for me here in Canada. I believe Nili mentions in her video that I have linked how it compares in the states.

  4. the video. I think one reason the fiber count of the THM blend is higher could be related to how fine they ground the flax seed. I know you mentioned the larger particles in their blend. Going to try your recipe. Really need to get more bang for my buck with special ingredients. Thank so much!

  5. I need the recipe for the super sweet and gentle sweet blends. Can’t afford to order. THANKS!

  6. Hi Chrissy, would you happen to know what size of bowls Nili is using to bake in? Thank you!!!!

  7. I’ve tried subbing xanthan gum for glucci and it was an awful result. I would stick with the glucci.

    1. Ooops this recipe calls for oat Fiber…not to be confused with Oat Flour….Trust me I know it’s a lot to figure out, and there’s sooo many varieties of flours that it can be overwhelming to sort out.

  8. And this is great for those of us who don’t live in the USA and don’t want to pay the shipping cost and exchange rate

  9. I’ve been using this blend since I started THM. Everything turns out perfect!!!! I’m very thankful for Nili’s work on this recipe. I miss her THM videos.

    1. works as a binder I think….I’m not totally sure as it’s a recipe from my sweet friend Nili….but that answer seems to make sense to me.

  10. I don’t want to buy new products and would prefer to use what I have on hand if they would work.
    Can I use xanthan gum in place of the glucomannan ,and if so would I still use 2 TBSP?

    I couldn’t find oat fiber at my store, but I did buy Bob’s Red Mill Oat Bran, is that the same thing?

    1. Oat fiber, and oat bran are super different so I don’t recommend switching those out…. As far as using xanthan gum instead of glucci, I’ve tried it with very poor result. Sorry mama.

    1. i was able to find the now brand of glucci in my local health food store. You can also order it online from
