New Goodie: Bob's Red Mill Organic High Fiber Whole Grain Pancake Mix

Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend is going well and that you didn't succumb too badly to the call of the mini-Twix and Snickers last evening. We went out for a lovely meal with dear friends because there was no way I having that garbage in my house. I had a planned indulgence cocktail and some Chardonnay which is much more fun.

Rob has been hankering for blueberry pancakes. I just love them and because no food is forbidden in my delicious and nutritious lifestyle, I thought I'd treat us this morning. But how to make them delicious and nutritious? I bought a bag of Bob's Red Mill Organic High Fiber Whole Grain pancake mix!

I've tried healthy/whole grain mixes before and they just never satisfy. The texture is always wrong but not with this mix. They were light and fluffy with a beautiful flavor and texture, not at all what I was expecting. I added a bag of Cascadian Farms organic blueberries that were so fat and plump and juicy which not only made the pancakes even more delicious, they upped the nutrition factor even higher. I served the pancakes with a thin pat of organic unsalted butter and a light drizzle of pure grade B maple syrup. These pancakes were so nice they didn't need much tarting up.

Eating healthfully and losing weight can include your favorite things if you plan for them thoughtfully. I had a sensible portion and will be heading out for a walk on this sunny Sunday morning as soon as I finish this post. If you love pancakes like we do, I highly recommend you giving this mix a try. Have a beautiful Sunday!


  1. Great idea. Going to pick up a bag today!!

  2. Never tried this mix, but I’ve seen it in stores and always wondered how it would be. That was a pretty glowing review you gave it…maybe I’ll try it sometime! I do love pancakes!
