Product Review: Trader Joe's Multigrain Baking & Pancake Mix

I recently purchased Trader Joe's Multigrain Baking & Pancake Mix.  I was pleasantly surprised to come across this mix. I want to incorporate more whole grains in my diet and the grocery stores in my area do not carry a multi-grain all-purpose mix.  I've been looking and looking...found whole wheat pancake mixes, or specialty waffle mixes.  Never found an all-purpose one....until now!  

So I immediately grabbed a box to try.  First I made the pancakes...wow..such a nice, nutty flavor.  They rose nicely, and were light, and didn't have the strong wheaty taste that some other wheat mixes do.

Next, I was in need of a quick breakfast, so I tried making biscuits.  I made drop biscuits.  I'm kinda a purist with biscuits (white flour), but these were really quite good.

So on Sunday, I decided to try the Blueberry Coffee Cake recipe on the box.  Wow!  This was excellent, moist and cakey full of flavors. 

This mix is a definite winner, and at $1.99 it is also a steal!  In fact, I stopped by Trader Joe's tonight and bought another box! 

What would you make with this mix??  Leave me a message below and let me know.   

(Oh yeah! go get yourself a box of this stuff....it's excellent!)


  1. Thanks for this review. I absolutely love Trader Joe'b but I have not tried this product. I'll get some soon :)

  2. I make pineapple and coconut bread with this mix and every time they come out perfect! I was wondering if we can use this mix for a savory recipe?


  3. Hi Namrata,
    You can use this mix with anything recipe that calls for an all purpose mix such as this. The Betty Crocker site has a lot of savory dishes to choose from that utilize a baking mix as an ingredient. One of my favorites it the Italian Pizza Bake.

  4. It's 2021 and I have searched for this pancake mix I used to buy at Trader Joe's. To me this is a healthy choice. But why discontinue. Each time there is something good out there they stop selling it. There was also a minty snack for dogs that worked for their breath and teeth they stop selling it. There is actually a lot more just to mention a couple of them. They are so upsetting. Why can we not have what is good for our body?
    Well to thank you for your blog I am able to say what I need to say. I know it's been maybe 4 to 5 years now cannot remember when the last time I asked trader Joe's about this special kind of pancake mix. It was the best out there and just disappeared from the shelf. Whatever
