Whole Grain Pancake or Waffle Mix

This mix, adapted from King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking, offers a great alternative to store-bought boxed mixes which often don't offer a whole grain option or have added ingredients that are not necessary. You can make it in bulk ahead of time to keep Saturday morning breakfast quick and easy. Or put the mix in a container with instructions to give as a gift to a friend.

Instructions to Make Pancakes

  • Preheat skillet on medium high or 375 degree F if you are using a pancake griddle.
  • Add 1 cup of mix with one egg, one cup of milk, and one tablespoon of vegetable oil to a large bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined. There may be a few lumps left but that is fine.
  • Lightly grease your skillet or griddle with vegetable oil or butter. Spoon about 1/4 cup of mix onto the skillet or griddle. Heat on both sides for about 3 minutes. The first side is done when the pancake starts to bubble and loose shine. Continue until the batter if finished.

Instructions to Make Waffles

  • Preheat your waffle maker according to manufacturer instructions.
  • Add 1 cup of mix with one egg, one cup of milk, and one tablespoon of vegetable oil to a large bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined. There may be a few lumps left but that is fine.
  • Spray the cooking surface of the waffle maker with a non-stick spray to prevent sticking. This step is optional if your waffle maker does not have problems with sticking.
  • Add about 1/4 cup of waffle mix to your waffle maker, close the lid and let cook according to manufacturer instruction. The serving size may differ based on the size of the waffle maker. Continue until the batter is finished.

Notes

Chef's Note: You may notice there is no sugar added to the pancake or waffle mix as is often the case. We tested both with sugar and without and couldn't really notice a difference so we have left it out since our families will generally add plenty later in the form of syrup or whipped cream.
Make Ahead: Buy a special airtight container (see photo above) for your pancake mix and make a double batch every time so you have plenty available when the mood strikes for pancakes or waffles. 
Mix It Up:
  • You can also add 3 ½ cup of old fashioned oats in the mix to add extra whole grain and fiber. Be sure to grind the oats in the food processor before mixing into your dry ingredients. The baking soda and baking powder measurements can stay the same.
  • If you don't have almond meal or need to make a nut-free version, then just leave out of the mix.
