4-Ingredient Whole-Wheat Pancake Mix Recipe (No Preservatives)

Only use store-bought pancake mixes for breakfast or brunch? After you try this homemade whole-wheat pancake mix recipe, you’ll never buy that box stuff again. 

The homemade whole-wheat pancake mix is made with four simple ingredients: organic white whole-wheat flour, organic cane sugar, baking powder and kosher salt. No preservatives or extras you don't need. Simply mix the ingredients together and store in an airtight container until ready to use. 

To make the pancakes, combine 1 cup of pancake mix with one egg, 1 cup of buttermilk and 1 tablespoon of oil. Cook on a skillet or griddle until golden and delicious. 

Top these healthier pancakes with maple syrup or your favorite pancake toppings. The prepared batter can also be used to make waffles. Just follow the manufacturer’s directions for your waffle iron.
