IHOP Harvest Grains Pancake/Waffle Mix

This is a recipe that I've been meaning to post...but I don't have any pictures to show you. We went to IHOP with my parents before they went into the MTC and we had these DELICIOUS pancakes. So I came home and found the recipe online and we love it!

It is a mix you will mix it up once and then be able to make MANY batches of pancakes or waffles.
This is how I make them:

9 1/4 cups flour (half white/half wheat)
1 1/8 cup quick oats
3 1/2 cups cornmeal
1 c. wheat germ
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups finely chopped nuts (walnuts/pecans/almonds...I usually mix them)
5 3/4 T baking powder
2 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 3/4 tsp salt
(2 1/3 T dry malt...I've never found this, so I leave it out!)

Store in container until ready to use.

Use 2 cups mix with:
1 3/4 cups buttermilk (I often use regular milk for 1/2 of the amount)
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
6 T melted butter
1 tsp water

I have made this as pancakes or waffles. If the batter seems too thick, just use a little more milk. These are my kids favorite pancakes...they are so hearty and just plain good!

Especially with buttermilk if regular syrup isn't bad enough!



  1. Wooohooo!! You made them for the retreat and I have been craving them ever since! Can't wait to make them. Thanks!

  3. What is buttermilk syrup??? This is your #2 sister.

  4. Here's a recipe for the buttermilk syrup I make...

    1 cube butter (I only use about 5-6 T)
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup buttermilk
    1 T corn syrup
    1 T vanilla
    1/2 tsp baking soda

    Combine all ingredients except baking soda. Bring to a boil. Add baking soda, boil for 10 seconds and then remove from heat.
