What’s In Your Pancake?

I know what’s in mine! I can even pronounce all of the ingredients! Plus, no hydrogenated fats. No high fructose corn syrup. No bleached flour. No artificial ANYTHING. We’re talking the real stuff here, people! Plus…they are rich in nutrients and provide 100% taste bud satisfaction!

These are so much better than opening a box of Aunt Jemima’s Homestyle Pancakes! Unless of course, your body functions well on high fructose corn syrup, modified corn starch, and artificial flavors.

Prefer making your “own” from Hungry Jack mix? Well, the ingredients are basically the same, but your flour is now bleached flour, and your soybean oil is partially hydrogenated soybean oil, plus you get some corn syrup solids. Bonus. Not. (Actually AJ’s may have the same ingredients as HJ’s…they may just be sneakier in how they list them…not that I don’t trust food companies, but…yeah…I really don’t.)

Perhaps you are more of a Bisquick type person. Oh, oh. Did know that Bisquick Original contains 4.5 grams of trans fats per cup? You don’t want to put that into your body, do you? I didn’t think so.

So how about trying these instead? They are super easy to make. (I can whip up a batch on school days in no time.) And they taste out of this world! Really. You have to try these! The only real “issue” is that they are quite addictive. And I don’t like sharing.
