Recap: Leftover Cereal Pancakes


Having leftover cereal isn't a bad thing and I wrote this post last year on leftover cereal pancakes to prove it. In the past year I have been experimenting with other leftover cereal recipes and I have come up with a few different ideas for you to try:
  • use in parfaits with yogurt
  • less sugary cereal as chicken & pork breading
  • grind it t powder and use in place of some flour in recipes
  • works well in pie crusts made with equal parts cereal and graham crackers
  • added to ice cream in a sundae as well as used in the making of ice cream as an add in
What ideas can you come up with for leftover cereal? Enjoy the pancake recipe below!

Leftover Cereal Pancakes:
1/2 cup flour
1 cup leftover cereal
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 cups 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. 


Directions


  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. I use my ice cream scoop to make the perfect sized pancakes. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
  3. You can add fruit to these as an additional treat, blueberries would be lovely.
