Gift Idea: Whole-grain Pancake Mix

Last week I found this recipe in the San Jose Mercury News. Over the
weekend I prepared the mix, divided it into three bags, and prepared gift
baskets that included herbal tea and maple syrup from Trader Joe's.

I changed the recipe as follows:

--Replaced 1/2 cup sesame seeds with 1/2 cup oats
--Replaced 1/2 cup sunflower seeds with 1/4 cup cornmeal
--In the recipe instructions I included with my gifts I replaced 2 eggs
with egg substitute and 1/4 cup oil with 1/4 cup applesauce.

Whole-grain Pancake Mix

6 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup cornmeal (I used stone ground cornmeal)
1 1/4 cups rolled oats (quick or regular will also work)
4 Tbsp. baking powder
4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 2/3 cups nonfat milk powder

Mix all ingredients well. You'll have about 12 cups, enough for 6 batches
of pancakes.

To use:  Mix 1/2 cup liquid egg substitute, 1 cup water, and 1/4 cup
applesauce in a large bowl. Stir pancake mix in bag before measuring 2 cups
and adding it to the bowl. Stir until just blended; a few lumps are okay.
Let batter rest for about 5 minutes before cooking on a greased griddle or
frying pan. You may need to add more water---start with a tablespoon or
so---if the batter is too thick to drop from a spoon. Serves 3-4.

Hope that everyone is having a pleasant holiday season!
