A From Scratch Breakfast for My Busy Little Family {Aunt Jemima Lil' Griddles}

As a mother to not only a one year old but also a 14 year old, I do not usually come across a breakfast item that they both will enjoy.  Usually it is one thing for my baby girl and another thing for my son.  Oh, and something else completely different for mom. ;)

Now with Aunt Jemima's Lil' Griddles, I have found something all of us can enjoy!  Every batch is made from scratch.  Aunt Jemima uses real ingredients in their Lil' Griddles products just like you would at home- like milk, and sugar, and eggs- but at a fraction of the time it would take you to whip up a batch from scratch yourself.  Great for families on the go, with little free time on their hands!

My 14 year old son definitely gives them a thumbs up.  Most mornings he gets up and gets ready for school on his own.  That usually means his breakfast to start the day is a bowl of cold cereal.... or worse.  Blech.  Now he can pop a few of these Lil' Griddles Blueberry Mini Pancakes in the microwave & in less time than it would take him to pour a bowl of cereal, he can have a hot delicious breakfast.  As a mother who feels guilty that she cannot always get up early with her son to see him off to the bus (usually because a cranky, restless, teething toddler has kept her up off and on throughout the night), this makes me feel a little better to know he is heading off to school after eating a breakfast that is much like what I would make for him myself. 
Aunt Jemima frozen breakfast takes great pride in making frozen pancakes, waffles and French toast just like moms across America make breakfast in their own kitchens -- their griddles are just a little bit bigger. ;)

I am very proud of my son and his food styling skills.  Yep, he arranged the pancakes on his plate himself.  A future foodie photographer (or maybe food styler?) in the works. ;)
Yes, even I indulged in some of these delicious two bite Aunt Jemima Lil' Griddles Mini Pancakes while I answered emails and worked on blog posts. 

Even baby girl was impressed! :) She couldn't get enough.  

Aunt Jemimia Lil' Griddles is a  quick, easy, pancake breakfast just like I would make for my family on a Saturday or Sunday morning.  Except they can have it any morning of the week. 

The goal of Aunt Jemima frozen breakfast is to deliver every batch just like you’d make it yourself. Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day, and Aunt Jemima frozen breakfast knows for moms, starting her family out with a warm breakfast makes the morning, and the entire day, even more special.

In my house, they are teenager, baby, and mommy approved! 
We love the Blueberry Mini Pancakes and the regular Mini Pancakes.  We can't wait to try the Cinnamon French Toast Sticks next!
