Arrowhead Mills Pancake Mix

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

O.k....here's my problem: I usually don't buy any pre-mixed flours, convenience food, etc. (Mainly because of financial reasons). I cook by recipes, etc. Well, I purchased Arrowhead Mills Pancake and baking mix this week. (I've been craving good pancakes and can't seem to make them). Anyway, these pancakes did not turn out yummy at all. :huh:

Does anyone have any suggestions for what I can do with the rest of the mix? I certainly won't be making any more pancakes, but surely there is some kind of other use for this mix. I'm not throwing it away.

So...you guys are so helpful and creative, I thought maybe you could offer some alternative recipes besides just pancakes and/or muffins.

Thanks so much! -Julie :)

Julie,

I think that Angie makes fried onion rings with pancake batter. Her picture looked wonderful. It's on my to do list.

I also use it to make a batter for frying, we fried a batch of Calamari with onions and brocoli it was delicious,

Mix one cup of the arrowhead mills

1/4 cup parmesian

1/2 tsp garlic or 2 cloves crushed

1 egg

1/2 cup water added a tbsp at a time until batter is smooth, but not runny

What a great idea! I do batter and deep fry a couple of times a month (I received the easiest deep fryer for Christmas, and I really enjoy using it). My hubby and I buy frozen unbattered okra and squash and deep fry it using my own simple gluten-free batter. UMMMM, tasty! :) I'm going to try the onion rings and batter ingredients suggested. Thank you both! B)

Any other suggestions? I LOVE new ideas!

I think it makes really tasty muffins, but I also really really really love the pancakes it makes. If you make muffins with it and add in some extra ingredients (carrots, apples, chocolate chips...whatever) you could probably find a way to make it good.

I have a great recipe for pancakes if you can tolerate dairy.

1 Cup white rice flour

1/3 cup coconut flour

2 Tbs. potato starch

1 Tbs. baking powder

1 Tbs. sugar

2 Tbs. oil

2 eggs

1.5 cups of buttermilk (I am sure almond or soy milk can be subbed here, but haven't tried it)

mix together dry ingredients ina bowl. Add oil, eggs and buttermilk blending with a whip until just blemneded. Texture will be a little fluffy and thick. Pour on to medium griddle and cook.

If you like the taste of coconut, I use coconut oil in the pan instead of cooking spray. Yummy!

What I've done with pancake mix that my daughter didn't care for too much was doctor it up with whatever I had around the house. Chopped apples and cinnamon works really well. Or canned corn for corn cakes. The texture will still probably be off, but she will just drown them in syrup and eat them.

I know this wasn't exacty what you are looking for...but...my hubby loves the pancakes I make out of the Pamela's mix. It's the only one he will eat. And they are really easy - only 4 ingredients.

Good luck.

Wow! Thanks everyone. I've been craving some pancakes, and the kind that my mom made were very thin and not too "bready." I will definitely give your advice a try!

Many thanks. -Julie :)

Julie,

I make the Gluten Free Pantry pancakes with vanilla almond milk and fresh blueberries. They are the best pancakes I've ever had--gluten or not. My husband, who can eat anything thinks so too.

I usually use mixes like that to make pan-fried chicken, or you could use it to make oven-fried chicken. I just add lemon pepper and garlic and my boyfriend LOVES it...... Or you could maybe try a waffle iron?

Thanks for the suggestion! I rarely buy premade mixes because of the expense, but occasionally our local Kroger will put them on sale (say, if they will expire soon) and I will get them then. So, it's good to know what to do with any extra mix I may have left over!

Happy Baking. -Julie
