Homemade whole wheat-cinnamon pancake mix like this one is a wonderful gift idea, or nice just to pull from your own pantry. Pancake mix made with whole wheat flour is fiber-rich and nutritious, chock full of calcium and iron, and guaranteed to keep you fuller longer.
The mix isn’t entirely made of whole wheat flour, since without white flour the pancakes would be very dense and, well, fluff-less. And I think we can all agree that a world without fluffy pancakes is not a world worth living in. Can I get an amen?
What you end up with, rather, is a light-as-air perfect stack of pancakes sent from heaven. With homemade apple cider syrup, you’ve just about died and gone there yourself.
The pancakes this mix produces are simply magical, so whip up this wholesome whole wheat pancake mix some morning for yourself! Or, do a good deed and do it for your neighbor. Then, of course, invite yourself over for breakfast. She’ll have to say yes.
Homemade Whole Wheat Pancake Mix
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Additional ingredients for pancakes:
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Blend thoroughly. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 3 months. This mix makes approximately 3 servings (serving: 6 pancakes per 1 cup of mix).
- To prepare pancakes: In a small bowl, whisk egg, milk and vanilla. Whisk in 1 cup pancake mix.
- Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased pan. Set to low heat. Turn when bubbles form on top of pancakes. Cook until second side is golden brown. Makes about 6 pancakes per batch.
This is a lovely idea! Can’t wait to make this as a gift in a jar! Thanks :)
This will be perfect for a housewarming gift for my sister! Thanks for the idea!
Let the choir say, “Amen”, and pass the syrup please.
I tend to not eat whole wheat pancakes precisely for the reason you give above: they’re dense. If I’m going to eat a calorie laden breakfast, it may as well be light as air. I am going to try these to experience airy-ness. :)
That is a great idea for a gift!!
They look wonderful. A few slices of bacon with them and I’m good to go!
Oh heaven help me – these look incredible! I’m all set to go to bed early, just so I can wake up and make pancakes :)
I love this, it would make a perfect holiday gift!
What a great gift idea!
Aw, I’m so glad you liked the idea!
This is a great recipe! I’ll be substituting the wheat flour for buckwheat because I have that on hand. Thanks!
I can’t resist pancakes and these look simply amazing, so great that they’re healthy too!
How creative! And the real branches makes everything look so authentic.
That’s such a cute idea! I’m already making some vanilla extract, this would be perfect to go with it!
Found this on Pinterest… family loved it. No one even questioned if I had made it healthy with whole wheat! I did… used 1-1/2 cup WHITE Whole Wheat flour with 1-1/2 cup White flour. Next time, I will replace all the flour with white Whole wheat and probably just add a little more milk. thanks for sharing.
This looks great. Can’t wait to try it!
Love this recipe
