Additional Trader Joe's Buttermilk Pancake & All Purpose Baking Mix notes:

Using a scale for weighing, instead of a measuring cup:
1 cup of this pancake mix (packed down) = 7 ounces
(Unless otherwise specified, eggs are optional, but not really necessary.)

Chocolate version: Add 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar and 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder to the aforementioned cup of pancake mix. Add semi-sweet chocolate chips as well (about 3/8 cup should suffice) for a great chocolaty taste.

Chocolate chip cookie dough version: Fold 3 1/2 ounces of this cookie dough, finely chopped, into the batter prepared with the aforementioned cup of pancake mix (in other words, first combine the pancake mix with water and/or other liquid ingredients, then add the cookie dough afterwards).

Orange version: Add 2 tablespoons of grated orange peel (rind) to the aforementioned cup of pancake mix, and instead of adding water to this mix (per package instructions), substitute orange juice.

Lemon version: Add 1/2 cup of lemon juice and 1/4 cup of granulated sugar to the aforementioned cup of pancake mix, mix together, then add water until desired consistency is obtained.

Almond version: Add 2 teaspoons of granulated sugar and 2 teaspoons of almond extract to 6 ounces (rather than 7 ounces) of the aforementioned pancake mix for a "touch" of almond flavor (or use 1 tablespoon each of the granulated sugar and almond extract for an easily strong enough almond presence).

Cinnamon roll version (my attempted answer to an IHOP limited-time offer from the past): Using the aforementioned cup of pancake mix, prepare pancakes the regular way with water, but also prepare these two toppings as well:

1. Cottage cheese (not cream cheese) icing (mix together 1/2 cup of whipped cottage cheese, 2 tablespoons of confectioner's sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla)
2. Cinnamon "filling" (mix together 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, and just enough maple syrup to obtain a thick liquid consistency)

Use both of these to top off the pancakes.

Cookies+creme version: Add about 7 ounces of chocolate sandwich cookies (with vanilla creme centers), broken up, to the aforementioned cup of pancake mix (a helpful example would be 28 Oreo Thins cookies).

S'mores version: Add about 7 ounces of graham crackers, ground up (or broken up), to the aforementioned cup of pancake mix, along with about 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips (such as Hershey's) and about 1/2 cup of miniature marshmallows (packed down).
