Whole Wheat Pancake Mix

20130601-124846.jpgIn today’s post I am going to share with you the recipe that I use to make my own homemade whole wheat pancake mix. I use white wheat berries to grind my own whole white wheat flour, which just adds extra freshness and flavor to the mix. Now, I do store my mixture in the refrigerator or freezer to keep bugs away and to retain freshness, which I would recommend that you do as well. I understand that not everyone will have access to freshly milled flour, and if you don’t that is okay, whole wheat flour that you purchase pre-ground can be used as well. I personally enjoy the flavor of white wheat flour but any whole wheat flour can be used in replacement.

After using the mix for the past couple of years for pancakes, I have no desire to go back to the store bought mixes. There is no comparison in taste and quality to me. In fact, I have a nephew who lives a state away that loves these pancakes! Every time they are back for a visit I have to whip up a couple of batches of this pancake mix for them to take back home with them. So, if you are looking for a great whole wheat pancake mix…look no further! It’s simple, quick and inexpensive to make. I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as my family does! -Shelley.

If you are grinding your own wheat berries, measure out berries and grind. I used my WonderMill to grind the wheat on the “pastry” setting.
