Leftover Cereal Pancakes and Snowless Snowman Contest!

Leftover Cereal Pancakes:

1/2 cup flour
1 cup leftover cereal
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
3 tbsp melted butter

I have a hard time getting my kids to eat as healthy as I would like them to, by making my pancakes with the addition of whole wheat cereal I have kicking around I can sneak in some additional nutrients and use up those pesky leftover bits of cereal that aren't quite enough for a full bowl. 


  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar then add ground up leftover cereal. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg, vanilla and melted butter; mix until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
  3. You can add fruit to these as an added 

Brooke really liked her pancakes this morning.

 I found a super cool contest on and thought I would share it with you. I am pretty sure it is Canada only but this is also a very neat thing for people to do that don't get any snow. Here is our entry for the contest:

I got this really cute snowman shaped cake pan for Christmas so I just froze some water with a couple drops of blue food coloring in it.

 It is hard to see from the pics but the facial features came out and so did all the details from the cake pan. It is pretty neat. What kind of snowless snowman can you make? Canadians can enter HERE.

  1. The individual wrapping of these 7.75x0.23-inch black and white striped paper straws is perfect for maintaining hygiene. They're convenient to use and dispose of, and the design is visually appealing. It's a great combination of functionality, style, and environmental responsibility. I love how they elevate the look of my drinks while being eco-friendly.
