Do you buy pancake mix or do you make pancakes from scratch every time?

Make a bit batch of this homemade pancake mix and delicious and healthy Multi Grain Buttermilk Pancakes can be done in a jiffy whenever you get in the pancake mood or the kids are screaming for pancakes!

Why should you make your own pancake mix?

  • Cost – the cost of the ingredients to make pancake mix are so inexpensive, compared to the cost of ready made pancake mix
  • Healthier Ingredients – by mixing different grains, you can make healthier pancake mix than most store bought brands
  • Making the mix in advance instead of every time you want pancakes, is quicker and easier when ever the pancake mix strikes you!

How do I use this pancake mix?

Simply use 1 cup of pancake mix for every 8 pancakes. Add egg, milk and additional flavors as desired like vanilla extract, chopped nuts or chocolate chips. Pancake mix is ready!

With this recipe, you will get about 4 sets of pancakes. Double or triple the recipe if you have a big family who likes pancakes often!

All you need to do is store the mix in an air tight container and label it so everyone in the family knows what it is!

Making the Oat Flour

You need to use a small food processor like this food processor I use. A large one will not process it fine enough.

If you have a grinder like this Wonder Mill, you can also make the oat flour quickly and easily!

  1. I made similar pancake mix and it had some oil also added into it. Having this handy is very convenient when pancake fever strikes, which happens to my son every weekend.

  2. That's a great idea to have that mix on hand. I love that you've included cinnamon in the dry mix – cinnamon pancakes with maple syrup…..delicious!

  3. I made this pancake mix before, but never really thought to enrich it as you have! Great idea to make your pancakes a bit healthier. They look delicious!

  4. I understand that kind of laziness. I only make pancakes on wknds. And haven't bought a mix in decades. Will try this one next time I make pancakes.

  5. Hi. I buy Kodiak Cakes buttermilk mix and love it for everything from pancakes to banana bread, even cookies! Would this mix be suitable as a multi-purpose mix too?
    Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    • that’s a really good question. I have never tried it with other recipes but that is such a good idea. IF you give me a little time, I would have to test it out first before i can say for sure.
