Health Benefits of Pancake Cereal

Energy-Boosting Breakfast Option

Pancake cereal is a fantastic alternative to your traditional Sunday pancake breakfast. Not only does this version of pancakes add some variety to your life, but due to the low-carb ingredients, it won’t send your blood sugar on a rollercoaster.

In fact, you’ll be getting a perfect balance of fat and protein that should provide you with enough stable energy to keep you going until lunchtime.

Provides Joint Support

Adding collagen into your baked goods is one of the easiest and tastiest ways to get a little extra bone and joint support into your diet. Research shows that taking collagen orally can support the health of the collagen in your connective tissue — resulting in healthier joints.

How To Shape Your Pancakes

Shaping these mini pancakes is a key part of the process. It can be all too easy to go overboard and make pancakes that are too big to be considered cereal. It may sound trivial, but if you want the full pancakes cereal experience — size matters.

If you have a condiment squeeze bottle that’s ideal, you just heat your pan, so it’s nice and hot (ready to cook), and drop small rounds of batter on the pan (about a dime size). If you don’t have a handy condiment squeeze bottle, however, you can also use a plastic bag like a ziplock bag with the tip cut off, kind of like a piping bag for frosting.

Remember, the goal is to make miniature pancakes, so don’t be too heavy-handed with the batter.

These little pancakes are going to cook a lot faster than regular pancakes, so keep your eyes on them and be sure to flip them before they burn.

Pancake Consistency

If you want crispy pancakes, make them smaller (about 1/2 inch or a dime size). If you want your pancake cereal a little fluffier, you can make them a bit larger (about 1-inch). The larger the pancakes, the fluffier they’ll turn out.

For a true pancake cereal consistency, smaller is better.

How To Enjoy Pancake Cereal

The best part about pancake cereal is that you can enjoy it as you would regular pancakes — throw them in a bowl and top with maple syrup. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, throw them in a bowl and add milk like you would any other cereal.

Both options offer a delicious way to enjoy your mini pancakes. One note, however, if you plan to add milk, go for the smaller, crisper pancakes as the milk will make your pancakes a bit soggier.

You can also have the best of both worlds and add some sugar-free maple syrup along with milk.

It couldn’t be more simple to prepare your pancake batter, simply add all your dry ingredients and wet ingredients to a high-speed blender or large bowl, and mix until everything is well combined.

Next, heat a large skillet or pan under low-medium heat and coat with nonstick spray or butter.

Once the pan is hot, pour pancake batter onto the skillet, either using a tablespoon or a piping bag or condiment container. Anything will work, as long as it produces small enough pancakes.

Cook the pancakes for one to two minutes on each side until they’re golden brown.

When they appear cooked through, remove them from the skillet and place your pancakes in a large bowl.
