De Wafelbakkers Buckwheat Berry Pancakes with Flaxseed Review

De Wafelbakkers PancakesDeWafelbakkers Pancakes are made from all natural ingredients, and don't use any preservatives or additives. De Wafelbakker's say that their pancakes "taste like they're made from SCRATCH!" Well, I put that theory to the test.

I tried the Buckwheat Berry Pancakes which have a brown, grainy, 'whole wheat appearance' with a few barely discernible berry specs. Although they are the size of an average frozen pancake, they are definitely thinner than the others. This is important because they got cold fairly quickly (the thin product could not hold heat well so don't even think about doing like 6 at once). But I must say that these pancakes taste good at any temperature.

They can be cooked in a number of ways, but I chose the toaster route. Upon taking my first bite, a pleasing soft and dense mixture delighted my taste buds. I took inspiration from the cover picture and microwaved 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries and strawberries for a minute. Then, I added 1/2 teaspoon of sugar and drained off the excess liquid. The dense pancakes soaked up the juices that remained and made for a delightful treat. All in all, one word sums up this great breakfast product: "Yum!"

The whole back panel of the box of De Wafelbakkers Pancakes is dedicated to explaining the main contributors: Whole grain flour, Flaxseed (providing 1000 mg of Omega-3s), Buckwheat, Fructan (a natural dietary fiber) and no artificial colors or preservatives. A serving of 2 pancakes has 140 calories, 4 grams of fat (6% of the RDA), no saturated fat, 210 mg of sodium (9% of the RDA), 4 grams of protein and a respectable 6 grams of fiber (24% of the RDA) and 11 grams of sugar.

A box with 6 cost $2.29 (purchased from Wal-Mart) and were WELL worth it. Some 'diet friendly' pancake syrups I recommend are Polaner Sugar Free Blueberry Topping and Aunt Jemima Butter Lite Syrup.
