Well, it appears that yesterday was National Pancake Day.
Unfortunately I didn’t realize this until the middle of the day.
Fortunately, there are 364 other days of the year when pancakes can also be on the menu!
Unfortunately I haven’t yet found a pancake mix that is whole grain, gluten, dairy, rice, and soy free that my whole family loves.
Fortunately Zemas sent me some of their pancake mix to try and I was pleasantly surprised that everyone loved it.
The box they sent had a gazillion coupons in it (if any of you are in Portland, feel free to swing by my office and grab one!), a box of the Multigrain Pancake and Waffle mix and 4-5 small trial packets of the Cocoa Teff Pancake and Waffle Mix.
We (we being my husband and my son) had the Cocoa packets first as it was very convenient to make the small batches on school days. A later email from my friends at Zemas informed me that those were supposed to be to give to patients but who’s going to blame me for not knowing that ahead of time? Anyway, I digress.
The pancakes were great. A touch sweet so you only need a little bit of syrup. Crispy on the outside and soft but not gummy in the middle (if you’re the gummy pancake type this wouldn’t be the one for you.)
As for which we preferred, since we started with the cocoa I thought perhaps my 7-year old was just thrilled to have chocolate in his breakfast but it turns out he liked the Multigrain cakes just as much. That said, I’d still pick the Cocoa version because of the 6 grams of fiber per serving. Love that!
Overall a double thumbs up on both of them. You can get the products at any New Seasons Market store in Portland.
Thanks Zemas for sending the goodies and for making such a delish product.
