DIY Pancake & Waffle Mix

I love a quick hot breakfast before sending the kiddos out the door.  One of my children’s favorite and also one of the most versatile is waffles.  Several summers ago I came across a professional style waffle iron at a yard sale.  They were just getting ready to close up and they had a sign up that said everything left was only a dollar.  I was still pleasantly surprised and thrilled when the gal running the sale said the iron was included!  We have used it nearly weekly since then and it is still going strong.

So, making waffles a lot and going through a good bit of waffle mix means a good deal of savings when I would normally buy the mix at the store!  So having a diy mix is great for my budget, not to mention that it removes all of the additives and preservatives that are in a store bought mix.  So off to find a recipe I went and since my pancakes turn out an absolute flop I was super excited that the Pancake mix recipe I found on Super Healthy Kids worked great for waffles as well.  I adapted it a bit to fit my family’s tastes and I hope you love it as well.

  • 5 Cups white flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Store in an air tight container.  I love glass canning jars and use them to store all of my premixes.  They make my shelves look so pretty!

Now when you are ready to use it is just as easy as any mix you buy in the stores!


When ready to mix pancakes use:

  • 1 1/2 cup pancake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 TBL canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • Optional items:  I many times will toss in a couple heaping tablespoons of flax seed meal or chia seeds.  The kiddos love chocolate chips added, or any fruit that suits your fancy

Then into the greased waffle iron or frying pan it goes.
