Multigrain Pancakes in a Jar

It’s another week of #HandCraftedEdibles!!

This week is all about the jarred mixes!

I’m going to be honest here.  This one was a first for me and I really puzzled over what to make.  At first I could only think of oatmeal cookies in a jar and it seems like that’s been done over and over again.  Plus my kids freak out about the raisins in oatmeal cookies and refuse to eat them!

So I started thinking and trying to come up with something that I love to make that could easily be packaged in a jar.

Finally I had it!  My favorite go-to pancakes!

I used to experiment with pancake recipes all the time.  But once I came upon this one two years ago, I haven’t looked back.  The kids go nuts over these pancakes, so they’re the perfect mix to gift to others!

For the buttermilk in these pancakes, I used cultured buttermilk powder.  It can be tricky to find sometimes, so check the baking aisle by the dried milk – it should be there!

The recipe below makes 2 batches (2 jars) of pancake mix.  You can easily double the recipe (or more!) for additional gifting!

 In an effort to make all of her holiday gifts this year, Camilla at Culinary Adventures with Camilla invited some of her favorite foodie bloggers to share recipes for hand-crated treats. Over the course of the next twelve weeks, we'll be sharing recipes from homemade spice blends (last week's theme) to charcuterie trays and everything in between. Hope you'll follow along for inspiration. You can find out more information, including the schedule: here.

This week, we're sharing our favorite jarred mixes. Think jarred soup mixes or bread mixes. I am a sucker for anything in a mason jar. How about you?
