Heart Healthy Hotcakes and Giveaway!

Tuesday Jun 15, 2010

My son loves pancakes for breakfast! I try to make it once a week deal, but he likes it so much that sometimes it is the only thing he asks for and he is very persistent.  I was very excited when I was contacted by Lehi Roller Mills to try their hotcakes.  When I read the ingredients on the package and the instructions it blew me away. I love when I read the product label and I can recognize what is on there, like 100 % whole wheat flour, milled flaxseed, non fat dry milk, brown sugar and dry egg whites. Heart Healthy Hotcakes features zero grams of trans fats, are low in total fat, have no preservatives and are a good source of fiber. They are made with organic wheat and Omega 3  and the instructions are  easy to follow, just add water.

I was concerned with how it would taste and if it would pass my son’s taste buds…

I love that all you do it add same amount of mix to water. That way I can make only the amount of  hotcake we will eat in the morning.

Then all you need to do is cook them. I only made 1 cup of the batter. 1 cup of  the mix yielded 6 hotcakes. Which is exactly the amount of pancakes on the directions. (Directions say “for 2 cups of mix you will get 12 pancakes), since I made 1 cup I got 6 pancakes!)

I thought it was nice and fluffy. For a whole wheat product, it was not heavy and the calories were not bad at all. (170 for two 4″ hotcakes.) I couldn’t believe it.  I had mine with a little drizzle of  Xagave and some strawberries. It passed my taste buds test! 😉

My son had his usual dollop of doce de leite and strawberries.  He ate the whole thing. It past his taste buds test too. 🙂

I feel much better serving him Lehi Mill’s Heart Healthy Hotcakes over the other mixes out there.

The only thing I wish is that they would develop are other flavors of the hotcakes, like blueberry, or buttermilk.  I also notice that the colder it gets, the chewier the hotcakes get.  So eat it while it is warm, which is true for any type of pancake!  But overall I really like this product. It is healthy and it tastes good.

Now for the better part, Lehi Mill offered to give away some boxes of Heart Healthy Hotcakes for readers! I know, exciting right. This way you get to try it too.  There will be 6 boxes given away to 6 lucky readers! The giveaway contest will end on Monday, June 21st, 2010 at 8 pm MST.  Winners will be announced here on Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010.  US Residents only please.  The winner will be chosen using   You do not want to miss this one.

Strawberries are a great idea with pancakes! I eat them with waffles, but never thought to pair them with pancakes 🙂

I am always looking for new, healthier options to serve my family, so these would be great! And who doesn’t love a pile of pancakes on a Sunday morning?

We love whole wheat pancakes here at our house with maple syrup. The doce de leite and strawberries as a topping is a great idea too, and something different to try.
