pancake mix

We are working on using up the many boxes of pancake mix in our pantry. Y’all had some great ideas and I did a little homework to see what other creative uses are out there. Apparently I’m not the only one with this issue, because there is whole book dedicated to the topic available on Amazon. Who knew?

I learned that pancake mix is basically self-leavening flour (flour with baking soda and baking powder already added to make it airy). This makes it great for breads, biscuits, batters, toppings and anything else you can dream up. Of course, we are balancing things out with veggies, proteins and lower fat ingredients to keep things in check!
