This gourmet pancake mix not only makes hot, tasty comfort food, but can also be used to bread fish, vegetables, and even make scones or muffins—no eggs, milk, or hassle needed. Nutritionists love Birch Benders for its blend of wheat-free flours, including their signature hazelnut meal, which makes the taste all the more dimensional and delicious. Birch Benders comes in nine varieties including Classic, Chocolate Chip, Six Grain Cinnamon, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Protein, Pumpkin Spice, Gingerbread Spice, and Double Chocolate Peppermint. All are organic, trans fat-free, and non-GMO. Our kid testers give the pancakes two thumbs up. These are the 15 vitamins nutritionists won’t take—so you shouldn’t either.
