A few weeks ago, someone from MamboSprouts.com contacted me about reviewing some of the all-natural, organic brands they feature on their site. Since I’m always looking for ways to draw attention to companies who care about the ingredients that go into their products, I was only too happy to oblige. Plus, many of the brands on MamboSprouts are ones that I use anyway. (And they have coupons!) I normally buy Arrowhead Mills Pearled Barley and Wheat Berry, so I was excited to try their Multigrain Pancake & Waffle Mix, especially since it has 22 grams of whole grains per serving. Readers of this blog know that I’m not big on pre-made mixes, but given that this one was from a brand I trust, I was game for giving it a shot. I decided to go with pancakes because I don’t have a waffle maker and I was pleasantly surprised! The cakes were easy to make—aside from the mix you only need two ingredients: canola oil and milk. If you’re out of milk, you can use water. I also added 1/3 cup of blueberries to my batter and a pinch of cinnamon, since I wanted to use up some blueberries I had on hand. The pancakes were light and fluffy and the berries gave them a natural sweetness.
Oh yum. But don’t take my word for it dear readers. Try making them yourself—for free! I have two bags of Arrowhead Mills Multigrain Pancake & Waffle Mix to give away courtesy of MamboSprouts.
