If you’re a pancake-for-breakfast lover, you will adore Sunborne’s homemade pancake mix. Created by two best friends; you can opt for the plant-based (made with spelt flour) or gluten-free (made with rice and coconut flour) pancake mix. Yes, you read that right. This tried-and-true pancake mix is delicious, healthy and easy to whip up at home. Loved by adults and children, you’re not limited to creating just pancakes, but waffles and dorayaki too.
