I totally love saving time in the mornings. Not only does breakfast feel calmer but it sets the tone for the rest of the day. 

One way to make this happen for waffles or pancakes is to pre-mix the first five steps. With those ingredients already measured and in a jar, you’re all set!

Simply shake the jar and measure out 2 cups of mix!  There’s no time lost hunting in the pantry for flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt. 

Tip: Use a whisk that fits the bowl without falling inside!

How much pre-mix do I make?

This part is easy to figure out if you already eat waffles or pancakes.
And, if this is your first time then make the recipe as it is because you’ll use all the mix anyway.

Here’s the approximate calculation to make a one month supply:
Step 1:
 Decide how many waffles or pancakes you typically eat in a month and how often you make them. 
For example, if you eat 2 waffles each weekend, then you’ll need enough dry mix to make 8 – 10 waffles in a month (which is this recipe!)

The number varies because it also depends on your appliance.
Some designs make very deep waffles while others make snack-size waffles.

Now, if your family eats 4 waffles each weekend, then double this recipe for your month’s supply of pre-mix.

And, if you eat 2 waffles once a month, then this recipe will last you approximately 4-5 months.

Step 2:
Measure out the ingredients in this recipe, whisk to blend them all, and store in an airtight and labeled jar. 

Step 4:
Now, each weekend, instead of scrambling to find the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda, simply grab your jar of pre-mixed waffle ingredients . . .

. . . ahh!

Use a whisk to help mix all ingredients!

Pancakes are easy and quick to make with this pre-mix recipe

Prep time: 10 minutes
Makes: 4 cups of pre-mix equivalent to 16 – 20 waffles, or lots of small pancakes.
Fills: 1 quart Mason jar

Ingredients:

  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. sea or Himalayan salt

Tips:

  • Use either a wide-mouth funnel or small jug to move the pre-mixed waffle ingredients from the bowl to jar.
    If you don’t have these, you could try using thin cardboard from a cereal box. Flour is quite heavy and I found plain paper wasn’t firm enough. 

How to make this recipe gluten-free

I like to use equal amounts of almond flour, rice flour, and then whatever else I have in my fridge or pantry.

The final mixture is heavier than with plain flour so I add 1 extra teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda to the recipe.

Hazelnut flour is amazing if you ever get the chance to try it instead of almond flour!

I’ve also tried and love Tiger Nut flour for sneaking in some extra fibre. These nuts are actually small root vegetables!

I almost always add a little coconut flour to my recipe too!

And lately I’ve been making my own gluten-free oat flour as we love the taste and texture.
If you want to try this gluten-free version add 1 cup of oats to a coffee mill and blend to the consistency of flour.
You’ll find 1 cup of oats fit the cavity perfectly.

Equipment:

Labels for pre-mixed waffle mix make it easier to find in the pantry.

Directions:

Measure all-purpose flour, or gluten-free flours, or even try a blend of both if you’d like to lower your gluten intake and increase fibre!
Add to a large mixing bowl.

Add baking powder, baking soda and salt. I added pink salt here for no other reason than we have it.

TIP: Choose a whisk large enough to not fall into the bowl should you need to step away and print off those fancy labels!

Tip: Use a whisk that fits the bowl without falling inside!

Whisk all dry ingredients until well mixed.

Using a wide-mouth funnel, transfer your pancake and waffle mix into a clean and dry one-quart size mason jar. 

Your pancake and waffle mix should almost fill a 1-quart jar.

The ingredients should almost reach the top of the jar however if you have no more room, gently tap the jar so the pre-mix settles a little.

If you are using nut flours, there is more fibre and bulk so you will need to press the flour down to make more room.

Screw the lid on tightly so your mix is airtight.

Labels for pre-mixed waffle mix make it easier to find in the pantry.

Print your handy labels and cut out with scissors.

Adding a label to the jar is part of the fun, and make sit easier to find in your pantry.

Either tape on or glue your label to the jar so it’s easier to find in the pantry in the morning. 
Now you have your waffle or pancake recipe already on the jar, all set to go.

RECIPE TIP: Use the milk amount as a guide and adjust for the consistency you need. Depending on your flour, you may need more than 1 cup.

Hands down – a glued label looks nicer for gift-giving.

Don't forget to add your own twist, such as shaved chocolate, to your waffles or pancakes.

And don’t forget to add your own twist to the final recipe, whether it is fresh fruit, your own spice blend, or shaved chocolate! 

Making waffles and pancakes in the morning has never been as easy as this!

For these delicious waffles I added a heaped tablespoon of orange marmalade, chopped walnuts, and a mix of cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, and allspice to the mix.

I hope you’ll give this delicious recipe a try next time.
