Admittedly, part of a self-reliant life is learning how to make things from scratch. However, I’m also a frugal, working mom, and to me, sometimes, it’s better to use a mix and eat at home than to find myself in a drive-thru ordering an Extra Value meal.

However, I’m picky about my mixes, and I want them to 1) be the right price, 2) taste good, and 3) be easy to use. For years now, we have been buying and using Krusteaz pancake mix. So, when they contacted me for the chance to offer a giveaway for National Pancake Month in February, I couldn’t resist. I’ve worked with them before, and I love their products!


We’ve been using Krusteaz pancake mix as our go-to for all things flapjack for several years, since we first found it in large bulk bags at our local warehouse club. To us, the mix wasn’t sickeningly sweet, yet wasn’t bitter like some competing mixes on the market. I also like a fluffy pancake, but I don’t want it to have “poof” to it, and the resulting pancakes from Krusteaz’s Buttermilk Pancake Mix are the perfect blend of fluffy, yet traditional texture and shape. I also like the fact that the only ingredient I need to add is water, which makes breakfast easy to whip up on a busy Saturday morning.


Krusteaz has a wide selection of pancake mixes such as Buttermilk, Blueberry, Heart Healthy, Honey Wheat, Chocolate Chip, Apple Cinnamon, and Original. Our family prefers the Buttermilk mix. They have an option for almost anyone, though I will say that my only complaint is that I’d like to see an organic/non-GMO option added to their line-up.

Look at the yummy goodness….




We’re a pretty traditional family. We’ve added chocolate chips and blueberries to our pancakes in the past, but when it comes down to it, we’re happiest with real maple syrup and some bacon on the side!

  1. I would love to try the Blueberry Muffin Mix, Cinnamon Swirl Crumb Cake Mix, Buttermilk Pancake Mix, Natural Honey Cornbread Mix and the Beer Bread Mix. They all looked and sound delicious.

  2. I top my pancakes with butter & real sugar. I know it sounds crazy, but I’ve never liked the overly sweet taste of syrup.

  3. Lemon treat sounds great. Citrus loaf is another great sounding mix (I see a pattern here). As for pancakes, buttermilk all the way.

  4. My favorite pancake style would be standard/basic buttermilk with berries, malt, vanilla. As for syrup I use a dopple of butter and whipped cream. A drizzle of caramel sauce if I am feeling really froggy.

  5. My favorite topping depends upon what kind of pancake. Banana pancake – peanut butter and whipped cream. Plain buttermilk – berries with berry/stevia syrup. Chocolate chip – butter and maybe whipped cream. Pumpkin – caramel and whipped cream.

  6. I have liked your page and shared the contest. I love the basic mix the most as I use it for everything, even making cakes and my husband uses it in all his batters for frying or sauteing fish, chicken, etc. I also like the honey cornbread for the same reasons. The mixes are very versatile! My favorite pancake style is buttermilk with a little cinnamon and real maple syrup mixed right in the batter. My favorite topping is Grade B real maple syrup and real butter!

  7. I don’t have a waffle iron, but I do have 3 hungry grandkids here, so I’d choose the Buttermilk mix; I can add anything to it. They’re traditionalists, so we get maple syrup for them, but personally I like cinnamon sugar on mine. Sharing this to My Stuff so my friends can see it. Definitely a fan!
