Buckwheat Pancake Mix

Cooking Light
The whole-wheat and buckwheat flours provide fiber and B vitamins. Spoon the dry mix into a holiday gift bag, and secure the top with a twist tie and ribbon. Attach the remainder of the recipe on a note card and add a suggestion of stirring mashed bananas, blueberries, or chopped apple into the batter. Present the gift bag with a bottle of maple syrup.

To prepare the pancake mix, lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours and next 4 ingredients (flours through salt) in a large bowl. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.

To prepare the pancake batter, combine the buttermilk and remaining ingredients; add to pancake mix, stirring until smooth.

Spoon about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto a hot nonstick griddle or nonstick skillet. Turn the pancakes when the tops are covered with bubbles and the edges look cooked. Cook an additional minute.
