Easy Holiday Treat Idea - Cranberry Orange Pancake Mix with Printable Gift Tag

Melissa Bastow

easy Christmas treat gifts

Do you give out teacher and neighbor treats every holiday season?  This year I feel like we have amassed quite a few people to give said treats, so I needed something quick and easy to put together.  And here it is - Orange Cranberry Pancake mix with printable tags!

Admittedly I had AI help me with this recipe, but unlike my Risky Recipe cookbooks, I actually tested this one!  I even tested two versions, made my family eat them, and settled on the best tasting one.  And they are quite scrumptious!

This recipe will fit in a pint size mason jar, which is the Goldilocks sized neighbor/teacher gift in my opinion - not too big, not too small! 


1 c flour
1/2 c quick oats
1/4 c dried cranberries
1/8 c granulated sugar
1 TBSP baking powder
1/4 TSP salt
1 TBSP orange zest
Orange extract (optional, and to taste)
If you're using fresh orange zest, pop it in a warm oven or dehydrator for a few minutes to dry it out a bit. This will increase the shelf life of your mix. Also make sure you're using an air-tight container (you don't HAVE to use a mason jar, just make sure it seals tightly).

You can use our free printable tags to attach to your mix.  They say "Warm Wishes and Pancake Mixes!" on the front with a space to write who the gift is from.  On the back is all the instructions needed to complete the pancakes.

If you'd rather not use our tags, or want to make the recipe yourself, here are the instructions for the rest of the pancake recipe.


2 eggs
3/4 c milk
2 TBSP melted butter
Mix the dry and wet ingredients together.  Cook on a preheated griddle set to medium heat.  Serve warm with butter, jam, jelly, or syrup!

These pancakes are delicious for Christmas morning, or ANY morning, and make a fun and different type of teacher or neighbor gift that anyone can appreciate!  Everyone loves breakfast food, right?  

You'll thoroughly appreciate how easy it is to throw together this gift as well.  No need to spend hours baking when you can throw a few ingredients in a jar and tie a tag around it!
