Enjoy some pancakes on a cold morning!

I am not exactly a pancake person, but now and then it is a nice morning treat, especially on a SNOW DAY, like we're having in Raleigh NC right now!

So I thought I would share with you the product that I believe is the BEST tasting pancake mix. Hands down. The flavor is amazing, and the consistency is fluffy and light!

Maple Grove Farms Gluten Free Pancake Mix

My GF brother gets this mix at Giant Eagle in Columbus, Ohio. I found it once at Big Lots in Greenville, NC, and stocked up several boxes for $1.70 per box! Unfortunately, I haven't seen it at any of the groceries here in Raleigh. The Maple Grove Farms website says the 16 oz. box retails for 3.65, but their online store is currently unavailable.

Maple Grove Farms (scroll down to see the Gluten Free mix at the bottom) Ingredients: Rice Flour, Soy Flour, Dextrose, Leavening (Monocalcium Phosphate, Baking Soda), Salt, Corn Starch, Natural Flavor, Xanthan Gum.

I'll bet we could lobby Whole Foods or another local grocery (maybe Kroger--they have lots of great GF items, and reasonably priced) to start carrying this. The taste is amazing. The plate in the photo shows one batch, that's about 1/2 the mix, it made about a dozen mini-pancakes.

Pure maple syrup is Gluten Free. I haven't successfully found a cheaper option, but at least it is a delicious special treat! I bought this last bottle from an International Grocery store in Cary NC.

Underground tips:
When I make these, I add a little extra water (about 1/3 cup) because I prefer thinner pancakes.

Also, freeze in a ziplock and enjoy all week long for breakfasts!


  1. Kinnikinnick Foods makes a really good pancake mix. I don't know if you can get that brand where you live. It comes from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Another tip: use soda water as the liquid - makes them very light and fluffy.

  2. oooh, thanks for the tip about Kinnikinnick, I do like several of their frozen products! Soda water sounds like a great idea, I will definitely try it. Thanks!
