The Best Homemade Pancake Mix + Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

The best ever homemade pancake mix!

I love having homemade pancakes but I also love the convenience of a mix, so I just make my own mixes – for everything. It has become a little bit of an obsession. And a problem. Because I don’t have room for any more containers to hold my mixes! One day, I will have a GIANT butlers pantry and my life will be complete.Β This is the best homemade pancake mix recipe on the planet. I just took what I loved about homemade pancake recipes and morphed them into mix form.

I love having mixes because it turns making a potentially time consuming breakfast – like pancakes, into a quick one. I make pancakes almost once a week because they are so easy to throw together when I have a homemade pancake mix waiting for me. I alsoΒ just love pancakes so we eat them a lot!

To make these a bit more wholesome, I’ll throw in about 1/4 cup ground flaxseed to the mix or even sub some of the flour for ground oats. It makes me feel better about drenching them in delicious syrup πŸ™‚ HA! But there are actually quite a few ways to make these more on the healthy side!
