Birch Benders


Who doesn’t love Pancakes? Birch Benders started with an idea: what if you could crack an egg over a griddle, but instead of getting a fried egg, you’d get a gourmet pancake? Pancake lover Matt would search far and wide for a hen that would lay such an egg, but try as he might there was no such hen. His search, however, brought him to Boulder, Colorado, where he befriended Naomi, a fellow pancake enthusiast. Putting heads and hunger together, they created the next best thing to a miracle hen: Birch Benders Micro-Pancakery. Lizzi, Matt’s college classmate and now wife, joined the team and forged the path to making Birch Benders, a just-add-water pancake & waffle mix. Brandon, another college classmate, jumped aboard to spread the good word of Birch Benders across the nation.

We are Birch Benders and we love pancakes. We hope you enjoy our creation.

Who We Are

We are Birch Benders and we love pancakes.

The idea behind Birch Benders was simple: to make pancakes that are better than at a restaurant and easier from scratch.  So when we graduated from college, we moved to Colorado, got married, and got cooking!  After endless work in our kitchen, and untold hours talking to passionate pancake people like you, we’re thrilled to bring Birch Benders Micro-Pancakery.  We’ve obsessed over every recipe, personally tested every ingredient, and the result is delicious.  We put in the time so you don’t have to.

We are Birch Benders and we love pancakes.  We hope you enjoy our creation.
