  2. 1 1/2 cups water
  3. 2 1/4 cups Wheat Mix

  1. Combine egg and water in a medium bowl.

Notes
  1. *If you were taking this recipe camping, place Wheat mix in a ziploc bag, label with wet ingredients. Then when ready to use, add wet ingredients to ziploc bag, reseal bag, mix ingredients by gently squeezing the bag 30 to 40 seconds. This means no fuss and no mess. The kids can even help with this.
