Honey Nut Cheerio Pancakes

How did we come to this stunning realization? Well, once every weekend we have some form of pancake or waffle. It’s practically tradition. I’m really big on tradition. Plus my toddler loves pancakes and waffles and they freeze really well. Well, one weekend we were presented a problem: hangry toddler (and mommy), only two eggs, and not enough traditional ingredients to make pancakes or waffles.

So my husband, being ever the resourceful fellow that he is, scrounged through our pantry and came out with one of our household staples: Honey Nut Cheerios.Honey Nut Cheerio Pancakes

We always have some variety of Cheerios (and Goldfish crackers). See Cheerios are pretty much toddler currency. And normally, since Goose likes to feed the adults in the household nearly as much as she loves to feed the dogs, we buy Honey Nut Cheerios because my husband and I prefer them. I know, I know. They aren’t as healthy as regular Cheerios. Honestly though, I’m not that concerned given that this kid scarfs down chickpeas and quinoa like a champ. And really, if a sticky little hand is going to shove mushy Cheerios in my mouth, I’d rather have the kind I like.

Does that make me a bad mom?Honey Nut Cheerio Pancakes

Nah. Just a mom with limits. And I can’t do mushy plain Cheerios. It’s a hard no.

Moving on. The ever resourceful guy I married threw some of these Honey Nut Cheerios in the food processor with some oats and whipped up the most fluffy and delicious pancakes (and gluten free if you use gluten free oats!) I have ever had. I have to give him all the credit on these delicious Honey Nut Cheerio pancakes.Honey Nut Cheerio Pancakes

    This seems like such a great idea!! He needs to get a patent on this recipe before someone claims it as their own & gets rich and famous! lol
  2. alison
    What a fun idea! I bet the cheerios taste really good with a little heat to them because they are so nutty already! Great idea on making them into pancakes!
    • jfletcher
      Thanks. Yeah, they are really yummy like this! It's surprising how well this turned out.
  3. Nikki
    What a fun idea! I would have never thought of that. Since my boyfriend is the pancake man, I'll be passing this onto him ;) ;)
  4. Ashleigh
    Oh yum, such a wonderful breakfast recipe! Thank you for sharing... we love cheerios and pancakes! I can't wait to try it!

    Sometimes the best things are born out of resourcefulness. Never would have thought to use Honey Nut Cheerios as a base for pancakes.
    • jfletcher
      I'm pretty sure we would have used almost anything to make pancakes out of that day. Thankfully we ALWAYS have some form of Cheerio. A Fruit Loop pancake probably would be weird.
  6. Anosa
    Who would have thought you could make pancakes from cheerios, thanks for the recipe. This looks great and delicious
  7. Kathryn

    I could have sworn I accidentally invented something like this before haha!! My kids would eat that up!

  10. Claudia Blanton
    now there is a new one! I am a honey nut cheerios fan, it is one of my favorite cereals, but I never thought I could use them in something else than a bowl with milk - great idea, thank you!
    • jfletcher
      It's delicious! I hope you get to try it sometime. Easily as good as a bowl of them with milk!

    The kids would mob me at Breakfast. Honey Nut Cheerio Pancakes. The perfect culinary bribe!
    • jfletcher
      I'm not to the bribery stage quite yet, but yes I fully intend to keep this one in my back pocket for when the time comes.
