During my best coupon days I bought frozen pancakes for my DD for pennies or got the free after double or triple coupons. I would stock up when I found a great sale. This spoiled her. Then I fell off the coupon wagon sometime last year but continued to buy these for her at full price (Gasp!)! Now that I am back on the coupon wagon and trying to be more frugal with my groceries I do not want to buy items like that with out a coupon. My solution.... I found a box of pancake mix in my pantry last week when I cleaned it out (imagine that! LOL!) that was marked 75 cents from a discount grocer. SO... Sunday evening, I made a large batch of mini pancakes. I placed them on cookie sheets and froze them. Once frozen, I placed them all in a freezer bag. Now DD can grab a few each morning and stick them in the microwave... just like the store bought ones. I still have enough mix to make another batch. She should be able to eat breakfast for 2 weeks at the cost of 75 cents! Now if I could could find a mix for whole wheat pancakes at that price. OR.. anyone have a frugal whole wheat pancake mix recipe?
