It never fails. The kids want pancakes, or you are trying to make biscuits for with dinner and you go to the pantry only to find yourself completely out of baking mix. ~sigh~ That just drives me nuts. Now you can make your own anytime of day and keep it on hand so you never run out again! The best part is you will know what is inside. No chemicals or preservatives…just whole ingredients.
You can even substitute whole wheat flour, or even rice or almond flour for gluten free pancakes.
