Homemade Whole Grain Pancake Mix – Gift-in-a-Jar Idea

I love a good pancake… or four. Especially hearty whole grain pancakes that really soak up the butter and syrup. I have been working on this recipe for a while and think I finally have a great whole grain pancake mix. I like to make a big batch (this will fill 2 quart-sized mason jars), keep some for our family to use and put the rest aside to give as a gift.

These pancakes are named for my wonderful hunk of a husband, Kenton. A friend once said that Kenton reminded him of the character named Eb from the 1960’s TV show “Green Acres”. If you’ve ever met my husband I think you’ll agree he bears a resemblance to Eb in this clip.  The nickname stuck so I name all of my homemade canned foods after good ole’ Eb.
