Is boxed pancake mix healthy?

Unfortunately, these boxed pancake mixes provide a lot of empty calories that don't actually nourish us. Enriched wheat flour is quickly converted to sugar in our body. Made with whole wheat, brown rice, corn and rye, this simple mix offers fluffy pancakes with lots of complex carbohydrates and just 2 grams of sugar per serving. Add some water and oil and you're good to go.

We love this nutritious selection for an everyday family breakfast. Whole-grain flour and flaxseed meal provide deep flavor and a healthy touch of fiber to help you stay full until lunchtime. First, I always start with a multigrain mix, as it contains more protein, fiber and nutrients than the regular pancake mix. My personal favorites are the Bobs Red Mill 10-grain waffle and pancake mix and the Old Fashioned buckwheat pancake mix from Hodgson Mill.
