How to Turn Pancake Mix Into Waffle Mix

Waffles from Pancake Mix

One of the most common recipes that I use from our recipe index is our Oatmeal Pancake Mix recipe. Every since I stumbled on this recipe a few years ago, I haven’t used any other pancake mix. My family loves it. I love it too. Not only does it have a hearty flavor and texture, but it is made with wheat flour and oats. It’s delicious, filling and healthy!

Well, the other morning was a waffle morning. I don’t know what made it a waffle morning. It just was. My husband suggested that we use our favorite pancake mix to make the waffles. I initially scoffed at his idea thinking it wouldn’t work but immediately began to do a little research on how to transform a pancake mix into waffles mix.

Turns out, it is super easy. In order for pancake mix to take form and not stick as they become waffles, they just need a little extra fat in the mix. All I did was add a little oil (I used coconut oil) to the recipe and the waffles turned out beautifully!

Simply put: Add 1/8 cup oil to your pancake recipe in order to use it as a waffle recipe.  Since we usually double the oatmeal pancake mix recipe, I added 1/4 cup coconut oil.

PS-Did you know you can freeze waffles and pop them in the toaster in the morning for a quick, healthy, kid-friendly breakfast?
