Q: ARE YOUR PANCAKE MIXES GLUTEN-FREE?
A: Our pancake and baking mixes are not gluten-free. We use gluten-free ingredients with the exception of our oats and are not certified at this time.

 

Q: ARE YOUR PANCAKE MIXES TREE NUT FREE?

A: No. All of our pancake and baking mixes contain coconut flour, which is considered a tree nut under FDA regulations. Our Banana Hazelnut mix contains hazelnuts.

 

Q: ARE YOUR PANCAKE MIXES FREE OF GMO'S?

A: All of our pancake and baking mixes use ingredients that do not contain GMOs.

 

Q: HOW MUCH IS ONE SERVING?

A: The serving size reflects a measurement of dry mix only (before water is added). One serving is one level (not packed) 1/2 cup. We suggest using a scale to measure out 53 grams.

 

Q: HOW MUCH WATER DO I USE?

A: Each mix uses different mix:water ratios. For Buttermilk and Banana Hazelnut, use 1 cup mix (2 servings) with 2/3 cup cold water. For Cinnamon Apple and Carrot Spice, use 1 cup mix (2 servings) with 3/4 cup cold water. Once mixed, let sit for 3 minutes to allow the batter to thicken.

 

Q: MY PANCAKES AREN'T COOKING IN THE MIDDLE. WHAT CAN I DO DIFFERENTLY?

A: FlapJacked pancakes do not cook like regular pancakes. They require low heat to cook, therefore they take longer. The hotter the pan, the more they will stick, burn and not cook all the way through.
 • The batter may be slightly too thin. Try adding an extra tablespoon of mix to thicken up the batter.
 • Make sure that you let the batter sit for 3-5 minutes as directed (the longer the better).

 

Q: WHY ARE MY PANCAKES STICKING TO THE GRIDDLE?

 • Make sure that you are using a non-stick pan or seasoned cast iron griddle.
 • Lightly grease the pan you're cooking in. The more fat (butter, oil, etc.) used, the more the pancakes will stick. If you think you overdid it, just wipe the surface with a paper towel and you'll be ready to cook. A light hit of cooking spray works best!
 • Remember that FlapJacked does not cook like regular pancakes and they require low heat to cook. The hotter the pan, the more they will stick and not cook all the way through.

 

Q: WHAT OTHER INGREDIENTS DO I NEED?

A: Our mixes were designed not only for great nutrition but also for convenience. All you need is water and a griddle.  You can use milk or any liquid of choice. Our favorite alternatives are almond milk or club soda.

 

Q: CAN I USE FLAPJACKED TO MAKE WAFFLES?

A: Yes, you can make waffles! We suggest you add an egg in place of some of the water and decrease the amount of liquid overall. (You also add 5g Protein!) See instructions on the back of the package.

 

Q: CAN I USE THE MIX FOR BAKING?

A: YES! You can substitute your basic flours for FlapJacked in most recipes. FlapJacked has developed many recipes from donuts, banana bread and cookies to casseroles and pizza crust! Check out the endless options on our recipe collection page.
