Pancake mixes are tricky. A lot of them contain buttermilk or other milk-based ingredients, including some made by Bob’s Red Mill. But about half of their collection is dairy-free! Bob’s Red Mill Pancake & Waffle Mixes include two gluten-free options and two wheat-based options. Each variety is on the wholesome side, and made with whole grain or grain-free flours.
Bob’s Red Mill Pancake & Waffle Mixes include these Dairy-Free Options
Of the varieties currently available, I’ve only had the chance to try the 7-Grain Pancake and Waffle Mix. To disclaim, I LOVE whole grains. So this mix was calling my name. It’s low sugar and free of any fluffy ingredients. Nonetheless, it made beautiful pillows with a densely whole grain taste and very mild sweetness. Tony doused his in maple syrup, but I liked them with a maple-cashew butter blend.
Below are details for all four varieties. Please feel free to leave your rating and review below if you try any of them!

Thus far, only the pancake mixes have honored our kitchen, but both varieties that we tried received top marks. The 7-Grain and High Fiber were truly breakfast-worthy, far exceeding their fluffy predecessors in nutritional value and heft. I prefer a whole grain taste, but Tony, who likes lighter baked goods, gave these a thumbs up, too.
