Ancient Grains

My family and I are a huge fans of Nature’s Path, so we were excited to try out their new cereal Ancient Grains. Everybody seems to be going back to the simpler things in life, and this cereal does just that.

Kirkland’s Signature and Nature’s Path Ancient Grains Granola with Almonds is made of fiber rich whole grains that have been eaten since ancient times. It is a tasty combination of sweetness, cinnamon, and almonds. In my opinion, it’s pretty darn good. It is also a good source of protein, an excellent source of fiber, and it contains 31 grams of whole grains! It is USDA certified organic also. It doesn’t contain artificial preservatives, additives, genetically modified organisms, or synthetic pesticides.

This cereal can be found on Costco an if you are a granola lover, you should give it a try.  (And check out some of the great recipes you can can make with this here).

Wolferman’s French Toast Rounds

This easy to make recipe is take off of our well known french toasts. However, if you are looking for something a little different, definitely try out these french toast rounds.

I recommend using Wolferman’s English Muffins for this recipe for several reasons.  First, I love the size of them.  That is literally the first thing you will notice.  If you are like me, you are buying whatever is cheaper at the store.  However, cheap does not equal same quality.  Wolferman’s English Muffins are double the size of what I normally buy.  I also noticed right away that I didn’t have to slice these open.  With little ones, I try to use knives the least amount as possible.  These you just have to gently pull them apart.  These are super yummy too.  I cannot believe the taste difference.  When you open the bag, you immediately can smell the flavor.  The cinnamon and raison english muffins is one of the best scents.  Another favorite flavor for our house was the Apple Orchards (I liked the scent of this one too).  If you need english muffins, I highly recommend Wolferman’s.  Without further ado, here is the recipe:

4 Wolferman’s 1910 Original Signature English Muffins (you could also use the Honey & Oats, Cinnamon & Raisin, and Cranberry English Muffins)
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon until well blended. Heat a lightly oiled griddle to medium/hot. Dip both sides of the muffin halves into the egg mixture. Place slices on heated griddle. Cook until golden brown on both sides.

Both my kids and I liked this (hubby missed it due to being at the Chicago Bears game).  Let me know if you have a great french toast recipe I should try on our next bag of English muffins.
