“This mix is great to have on hand for quick, delicious pancakes. Keep in mind that 1 cup of the mix, when combined with the egg, oil, and water, will make 5 to 6 pancakes. To grind the flax seeds, simply use a coffee or spice grinder. This would make a great gift in a basket with a pancake turner, skillet, syrup, etc. Taken from Whole Foods.”
