You and powdery substances have had a rocky relationship. Make nice with Jack & Jason’s Pancakes & Waffles, a line of all-natural, artisanal mixes concocted by two entrepreneurs in the Dogpatch. Five classic flavors — original, blueberry, double chocolate, banana-walnut, and pumpkin-spice — use unprocessed ingredients such as unenriched whole wheat flour and grains from South San Francisco’s Giusto’s Vita-Grain and chocolate chips from Guittard in Burlingame. Get a morning bump by mixing in milk, an egg, and a little butter, then cook in a stovetop skillet over medium heat. Voila: You’ve got a hearty, healthy breakfast. You might get a sugar high, but at least there’s no sweet love hangover.
