Make These Heart-Shaped Pancakes For Valentine’s Day (Win!)

January 31, 2024

It’s Valentine’s Day, and hearts abound—even at breakfast!

This February 14, we’re whipping up easy-to-make fluffy and delicious heart-shaped pancakes with the help of Canadian modern-farm brand Sixteen Grains, whose pre-made pancake mix includes farm-fresh ingredients and comes in convenient packaging that’s easy to take with you wherever you go: camping trips, romantic weekend getaways or cozy breakfasts in bed. Plus, with each bag making 12-15 pancakes, this mix is perfect for the entire family to enjoy! Simply grab a bag, prepare the mix and pour or scoop the batter onto your griddle, forming heart shapes. To make a heart shape, pour two equal-sized circles of batter side by side, and then use the bottom of the ladle or spoon to join them at the bottom in a V-shape. Then, add your favourite toppings and share the love!


  • 2 eggs or egg replacement
  • 2 cups milk or plant-based milk
  • 3 tbsp oil or melted butter
  • 1 x 450g bag of Sixteen Grains Pancake Mix


  • Mix together liquid ingredients.
  • Add Sixteen Grains Mix. Stir or Whisk to combine. Add a splash of milk if needed.
  • Add 1/2 cup of batter to a hot oiled pan
  • Pancakes are ready to flip when bubbles appear on top and begin to pop.
  • Serve with strawberries and pink and red sprinkles this Valentine’s day!

Behind Sixteen Grains is a farm and a family of farmers, from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. And, at only $9.99 CAD for a 450g bag, Sixteen Grains pancake mix is an affordable and delicious way to start any day. Shop online or in store. —Vita Daily
