There are some pretty good recipes out there that call for Bisquick baking mix. Instead of avoiding them, try using this replacement: Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Baking Mix. I have had really good luck using it as a substitute in recipes for pancakes, biscuits, etc.
The recipe that follows really adapted well to using this whole grain substitute. I hope you enjoy it!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars
[measurements in brackets are for 13x9 pan]
1/3 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky) [3/4 cup]
1 large egg 
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract [1 tsp.]
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar [1 cup]
1 cup all-purpose baking mix [2 cups]
1 cup dark chocolate chips, divided (semi-sweet is fine) [2 cups]
Stir together peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl.
Stir in brown sugar, baking mix and 1/3 cup [3/4 cup] chocolate chips. Spread mixture in a lightly greased 8x8 baking pan [13x9].
Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven, and sprinkle evenly with remaining chocolate chips. Let stand 5 minutes and then spread evenly over top.
Cut into triangles, bars, or squares.
