Multi-Grain Pancake Mix Recipe

I've been on the lookout for a healthy whole-grain pancake mix to make ahead and keep on hand for a simple breakfast (or, let's be honest, a quick dinner) option.  After spending some time looking around the Internet, nothing really struck my fancy. So I decided to experiment a bit and came up with my own.

My kids gobble these pancakes down every single time I make them.  The texture is a little different than the typical white flour pancakes but we all love the added bits of sweet, cruchy millet.  I usually make a triple batch and put the leftover pancakes in the freezer for a quick, healthy breakfast in the future.  Reheat in the microwave for a minute or so and you're good to go.


2 C millet
4 C oats
1 C ground flax seed
5 C wheat flour
4 TBSP Baking Powder
1/3 C oil


Place millet in food processor or blender and grind. Add oats and grind until oats are a flour-like consistency.  Mix all ingredients in large bowl.  Store in ziplock bag or other air-tight container until ready to use.

When ready to make pancakes, place one cup of mix in a large bowl with:

1/2 C  buttermilk (or 1/2 c milk mixed with 1 tbsp vinegar to sour)
one large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla

Add more milk as needed until the batter is the proper consistency.

Drop by 1/4 C on heated skillet or griddle.  Cook and flip.
