(Special note for my Columbus peeps: I'm scheduled to be on Good Day Columbus again, this coming Monday morning around 8:30 to demonstrate some healthy school lunch box ideas.)
A couple weeks ago, I had a giveaway and asked you to leave a comment with a recipe request to enter to win. I feel like it was I who won, since the suggestions I received were brilliant (Amy C, I am still working on your request, I have a few ideas mulling, but I haven't forgotten about you!).
Rookie Cookie suggested that I come up with a bulk pancake mix, since I loved her Whole Grain Waffle Mix so much. This was especially brilliant since R would eat pancakes every morning if I let him and I always whimper a little bit inside each time he persistently requests them since they were time consuming to make. Note the emphasis on "were" since with this new pancake mix, they have become a relative breeze!
Whole Grain Pancake Mix
3 cups quick oats
3 cups whole wheat flour
6 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups cornmeal
1/3 cup baking powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup white sugar
Mix and store in an airtight container. Makes 12 "batches" of pancakes.
When you are ready to make the pancakes:
Whole Grain Pancakes
1 cup Whole Grain Pancake Mix
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon vegetable oil.
In a small bowl, mix the milk, egg, vanilla and oil. Blend well and then combine with the pancaked mix.
Cook as you would any ole' pancake.
Makes about 12 individual 4 inch pancakes.
I just made a new batch of this mix and it is sitting in our cupboard, all ready for those busy school mornings!
Easy Pancakes? Sweet!
