Thrive 6 Grain Pancake Mix
Thrive 6 Grain Pancake Mix

Thrive 6 Grain Pancake Mix is ideal for making healthier pancakes and waffles when compared to store-bought box mixes. The variety of grains used in creating the mix provides an extra boost of added nutrition to the most important meal of the day. For the adventurous cooks out there, you can tap your creativity by using Thrive 6 Grain Pancake Mix as a base for pie crusts, crepes, and many types of bread.

Directions for use as follows: Mix 3 1/3 cups Thrive 6 Grain Pancake Mix with 2 ½ cups water (use less for thicker pancakes) and stir gradually. Do not over mix. Cook on a hot griddle. This recipe yields 18 4-inch round pancakes.

For waffles or crepes: Mix 2 ¼ cup of mix with 2 cups of cold water. Add 2 tablespoons of oil and mix in slightly, do not over mix. Cook as desired.

I’ve tried mixing milk into the recipe to make fluffier and even richer tasting pancakes, but, unlike common box mixes, the Thrive mix seems to reject the milk, leaving a lumpy mass instead of an evenly mixed batter. Sticking to water for preparing the batter is clearly the way to go.

I found that the taste of the Thrive 6 Grain Pancake Mix is a significant improvement over any store-bought brand I’ve ever used, including Bisquick. Now, when I prepare pancakes, I use the Thrive mix exclusively.

To create some variety in our pancake breakfasts, I often mix in semi-sweet chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, or Thrive Blueberries, and the family loves my pancakes regardless of which of these I add.

Thrive 6 Grain Pancake Mix is available directly from Shelf Reliance (, or any of their Independent Consultants, packaged in a pouch, pantry can, #10 can, pantry can case, and #10 can case.

I give Thrive 6 Grain Pancake Mix 5 out of a possible 5 stars. It also holds a perfect 5 star customer rating on the Shelf Reliance website.

This one is a definite winner, and we are acquainted with several other families who enjoy it so much over store-bought brands that they order it by the case! Yes, it is that good.
