Stone-ground cornmeal adds texture and flavor to these pancakes. Cook up any leftover batter--it makes cleanup easier and the pancakes can be packed for snacking later. Try them spread with a little peanut butter.
At home: Combine flour, cornmeal, powdered buttermilk, powdered egg whites, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, blueberries and almonds in a sealable plastic bag. Rub in 1 tablespoon oil. Seal bag.
Pour additional oil and syrup, if using, into small plastic bottles. Pack bottles and a paper towel for greasing skillet in a small airtight plastic bag.
At camp: Pour water directly into the bag of pancake mix and mix well. Let stand for 15 minutes.
Oil a nonstick skillet and heat over medium heat. Working in batches, spoon in about 3 tablespoons of batter for each pancake. Cook until the pancakes are browned on the bottom and bubbling on top. Turn and cook until other side is browned. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.
