I’m not sure the world needs another pancake/waffle mix. But San Francisco entrepreneurs Jack Harper and Jason Jervis are betting you’ll find theirs irresistible.
Their Jack & Jason’s Pancake & Waffle Mixes, which come in five flavors, are made with unenriched whole wheat flour, oatmeal and real fruit. Choose from: Original, Blueberry, Double Chocolate, Banana-Walnut and Pumpkin-Spice.
I had a chance to try the Banana-Walnut. You still have to add your own butter, egg and milk to the mix. A nice option is the directions included for making a low-cholesterol version with canola oil, egg whites and skim milk.
The ingredients are unprocessed and the grains are not ground super fine, so there’s a pleasant, hearty roughness to the fluffy pancakes, too.
