Whole Grain Flax Seed Pancake Mix

Whole Grain Flax Seed Pancake Mix created by Outta Here

This mix is great to have on hand for quick, delicious pancakes. Keep in mind that 1 cup of the mix, when combined with the egg, oil, and water, will make 5 to 6 pancakes. To grind the flax seeds, simply use a coffee or spice grinder. This would make a great gift in a basket with a pancake turner, skillet, syrup, etc. Taken from Whole Foods.

    Needing to use what was on hand, I had to sub some ingredients. For the 1.5c corn meal, I used 1/2c rye flour, 1/2c AP flour and an extra 1/2c oatmeal (beyond the original 1/2c in the recipe). I used regular WW flour instead of WW pastry flour. The mix then required much more liquid, so I added water until I got the right consistency. With all those changes, this was still a phenomenal recipe. The pancakes are not heavy, like whole grain pancakes sometimes are, but rather were pretty fluffy. (At least the way I made them, they were fairly light.) The 1c finished mix for me made 14 pancakes (about 3" each). Really glad I have 3 more recipes' worth in the freezer now!

    This is a great mix and makes a very hearty pancake. I buy flax seed already ground into meal so I didn't have to do that step. I got 5 pancakes out of a batch.

    The whole family loves 'em! We keep a bin of the mix in the freezer at the ready. One modification we make is to mash a banana and mix it with a teaspoon of cinnamon and a splash of vanilla and substitute it for the oil and then use a 1/4 cup of water to accommodate. Of course frozen blueberries always make it a treat. Truly a hearty, very filling, flavorful pancake.
