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.

  • Another winner in the healthy pancake category! I made this recipe exactly as specified. I did find that even after letting the batter sit for 30 minutes it was a bit thin for my families taste. Next time I will just adjust the milk slightly to get a thicker batter. I would also recommend quickly sprinkling the cinnamon chips over the pancake batter immediately after spreading on griddle, rather than adding to the batter where they want to sink to the bottom.

  • The taste is outstanding. Try them with fried apples on top.
