There are many reasons to make a homemade pancake mix. Whether the dry mix helps you meal plan, stock your pantry, or create homemade food gifts, it’s easy and fun to make.
I’m all about shortcuts and meal prepping lately. Even if this dry pancake mix only shaves minutes off breakfast prep, I’m for it.
Homemade pancake mix to stock the pantry
If you’re like me and easily overwhelmed, stocking dry pancake mix in your cabinet may soothe your anxious soul as it does mine. Maybe part of adulthood is finding joy in dry mixes when you open your cabinet?
This recipe is for a basic pancake mix. The pancakes turn out pretty sweet, so you may want to adjust the sugar to your taste.
Of course, feel free to add in other ingredients like chips, nuts, protein powder, or anything else that’s shelf-stable that you like in your pancakes.
If you choose to divide the mix into 8 jars, use the free printable below to add the instructions to the jars.
Use a big container if you’re making the mix for your own home. Otherwise, each of the jars contains 1.5 cups of mix. Each batch will make 5 pancakes.
The printable doesn’t fit perfectly on the jar, but it’s nice to have the instructions attached when you add them to the pantry. You can attach them with pretty string and make them look cute.

I know it’s currently a bit difficult to find flour in stores. At least around here, it is. I apologize for my timing if that is the case. Pin this recipe for the future if you can’t find flour right away.
Another option is to consider using almond flour or coconut flour. I use coconut flour quite often on the keto diet and it’s really good.
Check a flour conversion chart like this one if you choose an alternative to all-purpose flour.
