I made Pancake Cereal as a fun breakfast for my kids. It was something of a joke to make my kids laugh, but it turned out delicious and they loved this twist on pancakes. I’ve been making Pancake Cereal all week and decided to share it on Tiktok on my account @MyHealthyDish. Shortly after sharing the video I got bombarded with notifications on my phone. Apparently the video of my Pancake Cereal went viral with millions of views. Needless to say, it was a sign that I had to share it on my blog as well!
I honestly think the reason why Pancake Cereal is so appealing to make is because we all have a little more time on our hands. It’s nice to take your time on cooking something and making it more special. It’s also fun combining two common breakfast items into one. I decided to go all in and add maple syrup and almond milk to mine and I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it. I’m going to be totally honest I was really hesitant to add the milk because fear of it getting soggy. Well it does get a little soggy faster than regular cereal, but the trick is to cook it longer and higher heat. By cooking the pancakes longer you get it crispy instead of fluffy. I learned that hack just by trial and error from making it so many times this week. You can it eat the traditional way with syrup too, but I suggest trying with and without milk. I of course now vote with milk with extra crispy Pancake Cereal.
You can also play around with flavors of your pancakes. I experimented with Strawberry Pancake Cereal using strawberry Nesquick, but again freeze dried strawberry powder would be a healthier alternative. Have fun with it and do chocolate, matcha or even sprinkle Pancake Cereal. Just like Whipped Coffee was trending, I’m almost positive that Pancake Cereal is next in line. So I decided to get a head of the crowd and make a two options for you to choose from.
You can also play with toppings to spruce it up. I added frozen berries to mine to give it a more tart taste. I’ve also done bananas, nuts, chocolate chips and even yogurt. I suggest treating the cereal as a blank canvas and just have fun with it.
