You asked. I told.
Here is the thing about Recipes de LOLZ. They are 15 minutes (at most). They are easy (I can’t cook or follow directions) and they are feasible to make every single morning (if the spirit moves you). The comment I get most when posting a recipe is “Man I wish I had time to make pancakes every morning”.
Considering they take all of 10 minutes at the very most…I don’t see why not. But anyways that is just me. I don’t always use an easy flour mixture (it just ends up being cheaper). I also have boxed pancake mixes I used and that I grew up with. I also feel like there is this weird thought process that no one makes things from boxes and it’s all from scratch. On my blog you can be rest assured that is a oh hell no. The cookies I make are the break apart ones found in the freezer aisle If I were to make a cake or muffins it would be a Betty Crocker, add oil and milk recipe. I don’t make many things from scratch (just clearing the air there).
I tend to like mixes that you just have to add water. If you are looking for a somewhat more healthy version of pancakes, both of these have a higher percentage of protein and fiber (and obviously some carbohydrates too). My recommendations for ANY boxed mix is to add a bit of sweetener but we all know I have a somewhat big sweet tooth.
The first that we have used in my house (read: my mom used to make these when we were kids) is the Fiber one pancake mix. It has the taste of buttermilk (not grainy or dry) pancakes. All you have to do is add water and cook on a griddle (or waffle maker).
The second I use (and it’s a bit harder to find) is called Kodiak Cakes (I believe now it’s available at target). This mix is also a just add water mix but it a little more grainy and has more of the taste of wheat (which I kind of like a hearty pancake
Finally, either of these mixes can be subbed into my pancake recipes here so if you are not a from scratch person then go with this. You can add other things (and we have) such as pumpkin, chocolate chips, blueberries…whatever but if you are a beginner pancake maker…these are the mixes for you.
Here are just some examples incase you don’t believe me:
*Also, I was not payed or compensated for this. I like pancakes and I like to guide you to the easiest possible ways to make them by sharing my personal favorites.
Question for you:
Do you have a favorite boxed pancake mix?
How much time do you spend on breakfast daily?
