Healthy Baking Powder Recipe

We make our own baking powder so we know what is in it. Being such an integral part of so many baking recipes, we think it’s best if you know what’s in yours too.

  • 1 cup bicarbonate soda
  • 2 cups cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder

To be extra healthy, make sure your ingredients are organic and check the label to make sure nothing else is added.

How to make:
  1. 1
    Mix the bicarb soda and cream of tartar together until well combined.
  2. 2
    Use immediately
To store baking powder:

Add a teaspoon of arrowroot to the mixture, and stir. This will absorb any moisture from the air, and prevent the baking powder from reacting before you need it. Store in an air-tight container

Did you know?

Most commercial baking powder contains aluminium to prevent reacting with the moisture in the air, so make your own and avoid all that aluminium, in case you become like wolverine.
