Hearty Whole Grain Pancake Mix

Who can resist a nice hot pancake for breakfast? Mixes make it simple to have a hot breakfast even on busy mornings.  Our family loves the Krusteaz brand mix.  Out of the store bought mixes we have tried it is our favorite, but it lacks the nutrition of whole grains.  We store some of the Krusteaz mix, but we also keep a bag of this recipe in our pantry. This is a from-scratch mix that gives us the whole grains we need and can be done is a flash even on  a day I am racing to get the kids out the door to catch the bus. Drop in a handful of frozen or dehydrated berries to add some fun flavor to these pancakes or just serve with fruit syrup.  My kids love blueberry syrup!

Hearty Whole Grain Pancake Mix

Mix all of the dry ingredients together and store in an airtight container. To make: Place the amount of mix you want in a bowl and add enough water to make it the right consistency. Stir until combined. Allow to sit for 5–10 minutes and then cook on a hot griddle.
