When it comes to food shopping, one way to save money is to make homemade versions of your favourite pantry staples. There are plenty examples of how this can be done (which I’ll share in the coming months), but a good starting point is to consider making your own pancake mix.
Made with nothing more than common items you’re likely to have on hand, a jar of pancake mix can be stored in the fridge for weeks, and will often cost you less than two dollars per batch.
It’s also a great opportunity to sneak a few extra goodies in your morning meal while controlling the sugar content. Ground flax, chia seeds, and wheat germ are easily incorporated into the recipe, and whole-wheat flour can replace its all-purpose counterpart.
