Every morning while growing up I was faced with one of the biggest decisions of my day: Cereal, or pancakes? Both had their fair share of appearances at the breakfast table, yet not once did I realize I could have both at the same time–until now.
I have a feeling that cereal pancakes are going to be a big hit with my own family. Combining Bisquick pancake recipes with popular cereals, like Reese’s Puffs and Golden Grahams brings pancakes to a whole new level. Mornings, meet your new match made in (breakfast) heaven.
Here are my favorite combos:
Reese’s Puffs + Double Chocolate PB Pancakes
. Baking cocoa, chopped chocolate and a sprinkle of Reese’s Puffs cereal go into the pancakes; peanut butter, whipped cream, more Reese’s Puffs cereal and maple syrup go on top. It’s like eating a giant peanut butter cup for breakfast!
Wheaties + Easy Berry Pancakes. I’ve always loved blueberry pancakes for my morning meal, so combining them with the crunch of Wheaties was a no-brainer. Add powdered sugar, sliced strawberries and maple syrup for a delicious (and satisfying) cereal pancake breakfast.
Nature Valley Oats ‘N Honey Protein Granola + Banana Buckwheat Pancakes. Who says combining cereal and pancakes has to be a diet-buster (well, except those double chocolate PB pancakes)? Nature Valley’s new protein granola is a great pairing with Bisquick’s banana buckwheat pancakes. They’re hearty, delicious and definitely a great way to start your day.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch + Snickerdoodle Pancakes with Warm Vanilla Sauce. Make these cinnamon-sugar flavored pancakes extra flavorful with a sprinkling of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal thrown into the mix. Top it all off with warm vanilla sauce, more Cinnamon Toast Crunch and a dash of cinnamon and it’s just like eating a snickerdoodle, but for breakfast!
Golden Grahams + Apple Crisp Pancakes. I can just imagine eating a big stack of these streusel-and-apple-filled pancakes on a cool autumn morning. Substitute Golden Grahams for the oats in the streusel mixture and sprinkle some on top too, along with fresh whipped cream and maple syrup. Trust me, you will want to make this combo again and again.
