Homemade Waffle/Pancake Mix

I have to say, chocolate chip waffles are our favorite, but this homemade waffle mix is for ANY kind of pancakes and waffles! Just add your favorites!

We eat a hot breakfast most every morning. I know, my children are spoiled, but it makes it easier that they love to actually cook breakfast too! Especially my 10 year old, who is mostly responsible for the creation of this homemade waffle mix recipe. I've been making my own "bisquick type" mix for over 10 years now and always used it for waffles and pancakes, but when we were making them so often, I'd run out of my mix, my daughter made up her own version to make on the spot. This homemade waffle and pancake mix not only saves us time, but also money too!

Ya'll know I love simple cooking from scratch and this one is simple and easy! So easy, I probably haven't made it in the last 2 years. My kids have enjoyed making them and have taken over as the waffle/pancake makers in our house.

The dry ingredients can be added together ahead of time and stored in the pantry or refrigerator. A jar of waffle or pancake mix is great to have already mixed up for busy mornings. We have even given them, along with some homemade blackberry syrup, as Christmas gifts to teachers and friends.

You can also make a batch of the cooked waffles or pancakes and freeze them. For best results, allow them to cool, lay them on a cookie sheet and flash freeze. Then, stack in a gallon bag or container and put back in the freezer. We have frozen all of the varieties, but the plain or chocolate chip do the best frozen. This was one of the food items I made ahead of time when I was prepping for a new baby, and I was always thankful for a quick and easy breakfast on those tired mornings.
