Homemade Pancake Mix

Homemade Pancake Mix

After a busy week, my favorite treat to enjoy with my husband on a slow Saturday morning is a batch of homemade pancakes. However, we haven’t had pancakes in weeks since omelets, egg sandwiches and more savory morning meals use the leftovers we need gone before our move next week!

Once we’re unpacked and unwound in Texas, though, I know it won’t be long before I bust out the pancake mix and make a big batch in our new home. In fact, maybe my craving will be so intense that I’ll make them for every meal! Breakfast for dinner, anyone?

Homemade Pancake Mix Recipe

Unlike most store bought mixes, this pancake mix is all-natural and easy to make in your own kitchen. It also makes the lightest, fluffiest pancakes you’ll ever taste! Just combine white flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda, and you’re done. Store the mix in an airtight container and scoop out a cup at a time; if you make pancakes every weekend, the mix will last you about a month. I have included recipes below for vanilla pancakes and banana-blueberry pancakes, using this mix, that you’re sure to love!
