First is pancake mix. Do you know what's in pancake mix? Probably things you wouldnt' feed to your guinea pig or pet rat. Lots of creepy additives (aluminum) and preservatives (sodium benzoate). Now I am not going to get on my high horse and be all "granola" here. Our family eats plenty of foods with preservatives, but when there is an alternative that actually tastes better and costs less--we are taking that road.
So this recipe is actually Pinterest inspired not exactly copied though. I found a TON of pancake mix recipes on there but none exactly suited our lifestyle (many use buttermilk--I'm not even 100% sure what that is). So I put a few together and added some stuff and WHOAH, it's delicous! Cameron went to town and so did Dan and I. They are MUCH more filling than traditional pancakes made from mix, because they have milk and eggs in them instead of just water.
