Arrowhead Mills – Buckwheat Pancake and Waffle Mix – K Parve

Over the years we’ve used various Arrowhead Mills pancake and waffle mixes in our home. Our current favorite one is their Buckwheat Pancake and Waffle Mix.

Arrowhead Mills – Buckwheat Pancake and Waffle Mix is easy to prepare requiring an egg, some oil, a bit of honey and water. The package does recommend using soya milk (which we usually do) as an alternative to the water. (note: the mix does contain some soymilk powder). This allows the pancakes to remain parve and appropriate for vegetarians. If you’re prepared or want to use regular milk you can and the pancakes will turn out just as perfect.

If you have a vegan in the house, you’ll want to use an egg substitute. If you simply cut out the egg, you’ll still get a tasty pancake, but the texture just won’t be the same.

When it comes to taste, we like the richer taste you get with the buckwheat when compared to using regular white flour. As well, the convenience of a premixed saves a bit of time when preparing breakfast.

I also like to cut in one small banana and toss in a generous handful of parve chocolate chips to the pancake batter as well. This combination makes the most delicious pancakes. Just a reminder when doing so, you’ll want to cut out or cut back on the honey used to sweeten the batter. Some other combinations we’ve tried and enjoy are simply substituting Almond milk or flavored soya milk (i.e. Vanilla flavored soy) for the regular soya milk.

From a health perspective, Arrowhead Mills – Buckwheat Pancake and Waffle Mix is organic (Certified organic by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), a rich source of fiber and calcium along with riboflavin, Vitamin A and iron.

I generally find Arrowhead products at my local health food or organic grocery store. I have on occasion spotted it at regular grocery stores as well.

The only negative is the packaging. The package does not come with some form of a resealing method. So I’d recommend pouring the contents into a glass container to keep everything fresh.

Arrowhead Mills – Buckwheat Pancake and Waffle Mix easily scores a 4.5 out fo 5.
