The Fluffiest Whole Wheat Pancakes Mix

I’ve tried a LOT of pancake recipes, and all I’ve really been looking for is a simple one that it’s quick to whip up, has no oil, eggs, sugar, or white flour and tastes amazing. Should be easy, right?

I finally found a recipe we love, and I wrote it on a post-it note for the inside of our kitchen cupboard so that the recipe was easy for my husband or I to make. I forgot where I found it, but it’s been our go-to recipe for at least a year. They turn out delicious every time.

I made that recipe into a pancake mix form so it’s easy to gift for the holidays! Just pour the mix into a jar or bag, add a ribbon and a tag, and you’re giving away an easy, delicious breakfast. I love consumable Christmas gifts, don’t you? You enjoy it, and then you don’t have to store it or take care of it.


Make a few pancakes-in-jar gifts for friends, or multiply the recipe to make a big batch of pancake mix for yourself. It doesn’t get easier than combining 1 cup of pancake mix with 1 cup of milk! Make sure you let the batter rest for 5 minutes, as that allows the batter to get really light and fluffy!

I am planning to mail some of these mixes, so I plan on making some of these cute bags instead of sending a heavy jar. Add a cute little wooden spoon if you’d like, I ordered these ones here from Amazon (affiliate link).

Although I haven’t tried making these gluten-free, I would try using half ground oat flour and half all-purpose gluten free flour blend. Let me know if you try it!

I also have a FREE download for you to print the instruction tags, so you don’t have to make your own!

Course: Breakfast
Keyword: pancake mix, whole wheat
Author: Faithful Plateful
For a quart-size jar:
  • 3 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour (such as Bob's Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour)
  • 3 TBSP baking powder
  • 1 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 TBSP coconut sugar (optional if you want slightly sweet pancakes)
For a pint-size jar:
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 TBSP baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 TBSP coconut sugar (optional if you want slightly sweet pancakes)
  1. Mix all ingredients together and pour into a quart-size jar or bag.

To make the pancakes:
  1. For each cup of pancake mix, add 1 cup milk (any kind). Stir gently, then let rest for 5 minutes while your skillet heats up on medium-high. Pour 1/4 cup at a time on hot skillet and flip when bubbles appear. Enjoy your fluffy, wholesome pancakes with applesauce, honey, pure maple syrup, berries, nut butter, and/or bananas.

    For banana pancakes, you can add 1 small mashed banana to the batter for each cup of mix. For sweeter pancakes, add 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup to the batter if you didn't include coconut sugar in the mix.

    1 cup pancake mix makes about 7 pancakes.


I’ve since found that I got the recipe here from Running on Real Food. This is that recipe in pancake mix form!

  1. The best pancakes ever!! They are super fluffy, they pair well with blueberries, and my kids (and husband love them. Win, win, win!

  2. I’ve tried so many different whole wheat pancake recipes trying to find one my kids will eat. My kids devoured these and asked me to make them everyday! Thanks for the great recipe!

  3. I confess I have yet to gift these, but I regularly keep a quart-size batch in my cupboard for easy pancakes! Great concept – it’s so handy to be able to whip up “from scratch” pancakes instantly and know they’re actually nutritious. The only change is that I’ve found I need to let it rest at least 10 minutes to get the fluffiness, but that could be the type of milk I use.
