This is one of our favorite "gift in a jar" mixes. It makes 16 cups, enough to fill four 1-quart gift jars.
5 1/2 cups rolled oats, ground in a food processor or blender
8 cups (2 pounds) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
3/4 cup non-diastatic malt powder, for best malt flavor; OR sugar
5 tablespoons baking powder
1 1/2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon*
2 1/2 cups malted milk powder
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups cinnamon chips*
*We really love these with the cinnamon and cinnamon chips; it's almost like eating an oatmeal cookie for breakfast! Feel free to leave them out if you prefer a more traditional pancake.
Whisk together all of the dry ingredients except the cinnamon chips. Drizzle in the vegetable oil and mix until evenly distributed; the mixture will remain dry and crumbly. This is most easily done in a stand mixer. If you don't have a stand mixer, you may want to work with half the mix at a time. Stir in the cinnamon chips. Spoon into jars or airtight containers, and attach instructions (below).
Instructions for pancakes: To each cup of mix, whisk in 1 egg and 1/2 cup milk. Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes to thicken. Cook pancakes as you usually do. Yield: about a dozen 4-inch pancakes.
Instructions for waffles: Prepare batter as for pancakes or, for crispy waffles, add 2 tablespoons oil when mixing the batter. One cup of dry mix will make three or four 6-inch waffles.
