Lately I’ve been craving fun food hacks as they are great for improving everything from your cooking skills, to storage and just making the best use of your time and money! Something I’ve always been curious about? What you can do with pancake mix!
We all know that you can whip up a batch of pancakes or waffles with it, but did you know that there are a handful of other things that you can do with it? One of them, is making cookies! Whether you have lingering pancake mix or simply hate measuring out multiple dry ingredients, this concept is so fun!
By simply whipping up butter and sugar and throwing in a flax egg, you can make a standard cookie out of everyday pancake mix! If you hate beating butter and sugar, you may be able to even just do it by hand!
I was honestly shocked that this recipe worked and it was great to know that we are not only limited to pancakes when you buy a ready made mix. They are soft, chewy, and just like your standard chocolate chip cookies!
What’s fab about these cookies? Everything! They are quick, easy, affordable, need just a flax egg, butter and sugars, are made with just a handful of ingredients, are buttery soft, the perfect way to salvage lingering pancake mix, can easily be made in bulk, require a short chill time, you can cut down the sugar, use stevia sweetened chocolate like I did, and you can add mix up the add ons like nuts and extracts!
