I have always been on the search for a multigrain pancake/waffle mix that was just right. I finally stopped looking after I came this recipe. It is perfect not only for your family but makes a great gift during the holidays too!
Don't let the buttermilk powder scare you away! It can be found in any grocery store and is also the base for any great ranch dressing mix too, so trust me, it's worth the purchase here!
You'll notice I listed the sugar as optional. It is completely up to you. My husband is diabetic and I leave it out. For us the syrup is sweet enough, the added sugar isn't necessary, but feel free to add it in if you prefer.
This recipe stores for a month on the shelf or about 6 months in your freezer. Now that we are empty nesters, I make only a half batch.

Multi-Grain Pancake & Waffle Mix:
(Makes 4 quarts)
Store in pantry for 1 month or freeze for up to 6 months.
1/2 cup raw oatmeal
8 cups all purposes flour
2 cups whole wheat flour (or whole white wheat)
1 1/2 cups Buck Wheat Flour
1 cup corn flour (See my tip below recipe)
2 cups buttermilk powder
5 Tablespoons baking powder
2 Tablespoons baking soda
2 Tablespoons sea salt (more or less to taste)
Optional: 3/4 cup sugar.
Directions to make Master Mix:
in food processor, grind oatmeal to a fine powder.
if using corn meal instead of corn flour grind corn meal to a fine powder as you did with oatmeal.
In a very large bowl, mix together all ingredients till well blended. Divide into quart jars or freezer conatiners
Jan's Tip: Question: Is Corn Meal and Corn Flour the same thing? Answer: Not exactly. Corn Meal is ground more corsely and corn flour is ground more fine. If you are like me and only have corn meal on hand, you can grind it in your food processor till it is a fine powder to make corn flour.
To Make Pancakes:
1 cup of master mix
