Pancake Goodness

Now and again, Costco will run a test product - a really GOOD test product - which then vanishes never to be seen again.

Thus it was recently when Coaches Oats Pancake Mix became available at Costco. Bought some on a whim, and this multi-grain goodness left Krusteaz in the dirt (with nasty comparisons to sawdust patties being made). For flavor, texture, and just filling you up in a way that sticks to you - I've never had a better pancake.

Thus my disappointment when I learned that Coach's Oats Pancake Mix was but a flash in the Costco pan, unlikely to be seen again. Grr.

Happily, I found the Coach's Oats website, and the recipe to take their oatmeal product to the goodness that is the pancake product (as yet untested, but it seems promising. While you can't get the pancake mix, you CAN get Coach's Oats via their website....


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt

¼ cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup milk
1 cup water

In a mixing bowl, stir together dry ingredients. In another bowl, combine eggs, vanilla, milk and water. Add liquid to dry ingredients. Stir mixture until well blended.

Pour ¼ cup batter into a hot, lightly greased griddle for each pancake. Cook both sides until golden brown.

Makes 16-18 pancakes

I ran across your blog looking for a cookie recipe using Coach's Oats pancake mix. Thought that would be easy enough, but no dice. Instead, found your blog. They are still selling Coach's Oats Pancake Mix at my Costco. (Leesburg, VA) Are you close by?

Out here in Seattle, WA - near the Costco Mothership. Hope you enjoy the rest of the blog - and I highly recommend Lawdog and Ambulance Driver as particularly addictive reads!
