Pantry Pancakes

I don't know what it is about cooler weather that makes me want to bake, but fall and winter are prime baking seasons in my kitchen and comfort food is a must, esp. if you can freeze some for easy reheating later on. So, I've been searching for recipes that can be made in bulk so I can stock up some. When I came across this recipe for pantry pancakes, I knew I had to try it and share it! I'm trying convince myself these are some what healthy or at least better for you than the boxed staple. I'll let you decide.

Pantry Pancakes

4 c. quick oats
2 c. all purpose flour
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. dry milk
3 Tbsp. baking powder
2 Tbsp. cinnamon
5 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
Combine all dry ingredients together, mixing well. Store in air tight container or jar. Add these instructions to your container or gift card.
In a large bowl, add 2 eggs, beat well. Gradually blend in 1/3 c. oil. Alternately add 2 cups of pancake mix and 1 cup water to egg mixture; blend well. Cook pancakes on a lightly greased griddle. Makes 10 pancakes.

Wouldn't this make a nice Christmas gift too, jarred up in a decorative way. And so easy if you have it on hand. I like easy. More recipes to come, as I'm going through cookbooks and my recipe drawers with the holidays in mind and thought. Can you believe it's almost November!
