Banana Walnut Pancakes Recipe made with Healthy Farina Hot Cereal

UPDATE:  The winner of the Bob’s Red Mill hot cereals is:

#57 – Nea: “I am a fan of Wishes and Dishes on Facebook.”

Congratulations, Nea!  Thank you to everyone who entered.

My husband is the biggest fan of breakfast food that I’ve ever met in my life.  He never gets sick of it, any day, any TIME of the day.  So needless to say, he was really happy when I whipped him up these pancakes (I literally just realized I forgot to make him scrambled eggs to go with them).  In my defense, Friday was one of those rare days where I spend many, many hours on making food for my blog…I seriously had about 3 or 4 different projects going on all at once.  Cupcakes, pancakes, lemon cookies, etc…..it was all happening on Friday afternoon.  Try to imagine what my kitchen looked like!  THAT was a fun mess to clean up.  Confession: there’s still some dirty pans “soaking” and just waiting for me.

For healthy whole grains, you just can’t beat Bob’s Red Mill.  Once again, the very generous people over at Bob’s Red Mill sent me an abundance of their delicious and healthy hot cereals to try out and review for all of you lovely readers.  They make wonderful food products for people who strive to eat better and live healthier.  At any given time in our home, we have had countless products from them ranging from their steel cut oats to their flours and cereal blends.  Bob’s Red Mill makes wholesome, natural, and delicious food for everyone and you will love these hot cereals, especially on these cold Winter days!

Bob’s Red Mill started as a family-owned company but recently became an employee-owned company because of Bob’s dedication to his employees and his company. They have been offering real, natural, whole grain products for over 30 years.  You can feel good about serving their food to your family!  They do not use any GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in their products.  Also, for those who are gluten-free, Bob’s offers a variety of gluten-free products.  Here is the recipe for delicious pancakes from a recipe on the back of their Whole Wheat Farina:

Here are some other simple ways to enjoy their hot cereals and to make them even tastier:

  • Add a spoonful of any nut butter or an egg to your cereal to boost flavor and protein and give you a good start to your day and keep your stomach satisfied until lunchtime!
  • Add flaxseed meal, chia seed, hemp seed or pumpkin seed to increase your fiber and omega-3 intake which is good for your heart!
  • Add fresh, frozen or dried fruit to give these hot cereals a good flavor boost as well as adding vitamins and antioxidants.
  • Adding a sprinkle of cinnamon to your bowl of cereal for a big flavor boost.  I love adding cinnamon to hot drinks and hot cereal!

    Ashley, I can totally relate to the kitchen disaster phenemona. You know how it goes when you are creating something you need to try it many ways and lots of tests and yes lots and lots of dirty dishes. However, these delicious and healthy pancakes only need one pan and one dish so I am all about that. I buy Bob’s Red Mill products all the time in Hong Kong.

    Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. Like your husband I can eat it for any meal. My favorite cereal that I have every morning is oatmeal sprinkled with plain cinnamon and blueberries. It carries me over to lunch.

    Your pancakes sound fantastic. I will have to give those a try.

  15. February 24, 2014 at 10:15 AM #

    Ooh, these pancakes look SO good! And my favorite type of cereal? Probably oatmeal with brown sugar. =)

    Would you believe I’ve never tried any products from Bob’s Red Mill? I’ve seen them in several local stores too! My favorite cereal . . . well, I’m currently averaging about two bowls of any cereal every day because it’s an out of control craving haha, but I love plain old Special K with fresh berries.

    Bob’s Red Mill is a 5-minute drive from my work. Whenever we get a “Teacher Work Day”, we all go there for lunch. It’s delicious, and the shopping opportunities (“shopportunities” as my friend Matt calls them) are fantastic! YUM! I’ll have to try some of the products you featured.
