Windy Point: 1lb Bag
FOR THE MODERN LUMBERJACK
Windy Point is the perfect breakfast to get you and your crew moving, whether you’re chopping wood all morning, diving in a lake, or settling in for grueling day of knitting by the fire.
I made this pancake mix in honor of my great-grandma, Ida, who rowed across a lake in 1910 to live in a cabin in the woods to live her best life. She called the place Windy Point, and it’s where four generations of family have learned to swim, to chop wood - and to make pancakes.
It’s our most complex cake: rich, fragrant blue corn complements a dry, lightly bitter backbone of buckwheat. Rye (think whiskey, not caraway rye bread) adds a peppery back-note, with a sweet & buttery hazelnut finish.
It’s got enough protein and fiber from whole grains to keep you going - no matter where your breakfast takes you.

The ancient & heirloom grains in this cake have less gluten & gentler gluten than modern, super-hybridized wheat. However you feel about gluten, it makes a lighter cake, because mixing toughens gluten & produces chewy pancakes. Most recipes call for gently folding the wet ingredients into the dry. It’s tedious and fussy! We solved that problem by using better grains. So go buck wild, we got you!
Organic Blue Corn
- Mix together the egg, the melted butter (you can use oil as well), and the milk (you can use non-dairy milks of all kinds).
- Add the pancake mix. Mix again.
- Fry hot & ungreased.
If you are the type (and you know if you are), we have a 22 page booklet with all of the wisdom you need to flip perfect pancakes for the rest of your life.
We think we make the best pancake mixes on earth.

How many pancakes does it make? →
1lb bag: 50 4 inch pancakes, 10 at a time. 12oz bag: will make 40 4 inch pancakes, 10 at a time. Shake Packs: 10 4 inch pancakes (or 6 6 inch pancakes).
Can I make waffles with these? → Yes. Add 2T/30g liquid to any of our pancake instructions.
Is it organic? → All of the grains in our pancake mixes are organic. We are a small operation and it doesn’t make sense for us to pay to certify organic. Yet.
Why is there so much protein? → We use heirloom grains with high protein content and (sometimes) nut meal. We do not use any industrially manufactured protein powders.
Is it NON-GMO? → Yes it is. GMO foods are bad for the soil, bad for biodiversity, bad for the resilience of local economies, bad for long-term pest management, and really bad for family farms. We are a small operation and it doesn’t make sense for us to certify Non-GMO. Yet.
It is Vegan? → All of our mixes are vegan. View vegan preparation instructions.
Is it whole grain? → Yes. Yes. All of our pancake mixes are not just whole grain, but whole-kernel. Our grains are stone-milled, which is the most complete kind of grain you can eat. Most so-called 'whole grains' have the germ (the most nutritious part of the grain) removed to extend shelf life. It's a trick, and we don't use it.
What are Heirloom Grains? → Heirloom grains are grains selected and planted from the best of each year’s crop, as was done for thousands of years before the industrial revolution. They have a variety and richness of flavor that modern grains simply cannot approach. Many of them contain gluten, but their gluten structures are fundamentally different: gentler, easier to digest.
How come popcorn flour is so low on the White Knight ingredient list? → Because it’s so light, and ingredients are listed by weight. It’s over half the product, by volume. That’s the whole point ;)

What we hand down to the next generations matters.
Building a regenerative food system is literally the planet’s best hope at handing down a livable world to the next generations. That’s why we source our heirloom grains from small regenerative farmers who use restorative practices (like no-till farming, crop rotation, cover cropping, and composting) capture carbon, build biodiversity, filter water, and restore critical topsoil for future generations. All while plowing profits into small-business economies.
Thank you for handing down something better.
Windy Point pancakes are our Saturday morning ritual when our grandson spends the night. After being raised on white flour pancakes because they were cheap growing up, I didn't eat pancakes for decades because I just wanted a multi-grain one and these are perfect.
Another Long Table flavor, another brilliant breakfast. They simply DO NOT MISS!
I’m always craving pancakes. This steady little mix gives me the best of both worlds satisfying my craving in the best way while still providing me with a steady source of energy throughout the morning after a workout! You won’t get that post-carb crash like you do with regular Joe Shmoe pancakes. And there’s just something about the blue corn in here makes these so irresistible…. Sometimes I even add a scoop of my favorite protein powder for an extra punch. You can’t go wrong!
Heirloom grains taste better and are better for you than their modern counterparts.
Stone-milling those grains gives you a true whole grain: all of its taste and nutritional value - unlike modern roller-milled 'whole grains' (which have had their most nutritious and flavorful elements removed for the sake of shelf-life).
High protein, high fiber pancakes made from stone ground whole heirloom grains & nut meals. No Industrial protein powder, no filler, no tricks.
Just the strongest start to your day possible.
Our future depends on food.
Regenerative agriculture is built on four principles: carbon capture, biodiversity, water quality & soil health.
By sourcing plant-based products directly from local regenerative farmers, we protect the world that our kids and grandkids will grow up in.
