If your house is anything like mine in the morning, things are pretty hectic. Even with clothes picked out, homework finished and in backpacks and everything ready to go, somehow we always seem to be running late. On the weekends, we have Brownie and Daisy Scout meetings, swim lessons, school clubs and town events that some or all of us are heading out to.
We’re always looking for something quick and easy that the kids can eat for breakfast. One of our absolute favorite breakfasts has been the Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix that we just add water to. It’s super simple to mix and can be used for pancakes or waffles. But it does take a while to make, so we don’t always have time for that.
So when I heard of the new Aunt Jemima ‘Lil Griddles breakfasts, I was definitely interested. They’re made with real eggs, milk, sugar and other wholesome ingredients and without any high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or preservatives. I was really hoping they’d be great since it would be really nice to have an easy, quick breakfast that’s delicious and filling, without the effort, time to cook and messy pan to clean.
I bought the lil Griddles pancakes and blueberry pancakes and brought them home for a family taste test. Since I would be making them most days when we’re rushed, I prepared them the fastest way: in the microwave. To be honest, I thought they’d probably be a little mushy or rubbery. I microwaved them on a plate for about 30 seconds and they’re perfect.
They tasted just like the pancakes we’re used to making. JUST like them, since we always used the Aunt Jemima mix. I was really impressed. The consistency is just like my homemade pancakes, light and fluffy. They taste perfect with our favorite syrup, but they’re really good by themselves. The girls loved the taste and loved the size of them, making different designs and shapes with them or stacking them up before eating. And my toddler son loves that he can pick one up and hold it in his hand, eating it without any help.
There are three new kinds of Aunt Jemima’s Lil’ Griddles, Aunt Jemima frozen Blueberry Mini pancakes, Aunt Jemima frozen Mini pancakes, and Aunt Jemima frozen mini Cinnamon French Toast Sticks. They’re perfect bite size breakfast that taste like “every batch is made from scratch” but are ready in just 30 seconds with no prep and no clean up. Aunt Jemima frozen breakfast Lil’ Griddles are a huge help for moms like me who want to serve my family a warm breakfast in the morning, just like one I’d make myself.
