One of my favorite “quick” meals is to add different ingredients to my Krusteaz pancake mix. This particular mix-up can be made anytime, with any berries. I use frozen mixed berries most of the time, just because they are available year round and generally quite a bit cheaper than fresh berries. This recipe can either be made into pancakes or waffles.

You can use any pancake mix, I just use Krusteaz because all you have to add is water. Plus, its so good. They also have a protein packed mix.
