A couple of days ago I shared with you a recipe for some delicious Peppermint Chocolate Chip Pancakes. Did any of you end up making them yet? I think you will really like them. I think we will make them this year for our Christmas Breakfast.
That got me thinking that it might be fun to give the gift of pancakes to your friends and family. How fun to have some easy, festive and delicious Christmas Pancakes right from a Pancake Mix in a Jar.
The Gift in a Jar is not a new concept…but I always love a super cute, yet practical gift idea. And because of their popularity, I am guessing many of you like them too. And…with very little preparation, you can create these for a lot of different people.
All you will need to do is take a quart size Mason Jar and sterilize it in the dishwasher. Be sure the jar is completely dry before adding your ingredients. You don’t want to get the flour wet or it will not be as pretty and can introduce bacteria before the recipient uses the Pancake Mix.

Layer the following in your Jar in the order that they are listed.
- 3 cups all-purpose flour

Now…you may notice that the labels in the images are slightly different than the downloads. Well…I left something out and had to fix it and made a few changes. But…I didn’t notice until after I took the photos…and edited them. So…I just left them. I might get around to re-taking them…and then again…I might not!
As always, I would love to hear from those of you who end up making some. After preparing these, I saw my friend Jen had shared some on her site that were made by my other friend Cindy! Hers are beautiful…and Cinnamon. Check hers out too!
