All-Bran, All Day!
By Bethany Booth

We all understand that eating bran is a great way to add some much-needed fiber into our daily diets but anyone who thought they had to suffer through the same bowl of bran cereal and cold milk each morning is in for a brantastic surprise!

Not only does Kellogg’s All-Bran cereal come in a satisfying array of choices, from All-Bran Extra Fiber to All-Bran Yogurt Bites, there are endless recipes to help incorporate that daily serving of fiber-filled bran in tasty ways; and not just for breakfast!

How about switching out that bowl of cold cereal in the morning for some incredible banana pancakes, or shall we say…brancakes.

Cottage Cheese & Banana Pancakes

3 eggs, separated
1 cup (8 oz.) cottage cheese, drained
½ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup original bran cereal
½ cup diced bananas
¼ cup butter

In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry.

In another bowl, beat cottage cheese, egg and egg yolks until nearly smooth. Gradually beat in flour and bran cereal. Stir in diced banana. Fold in egg whites.

Using about ¼ cup batter for each pancake, cook on greased griddle preheated to 375 F, turning once. Serve with butter, bananas and syrup.

The crunch of bran cereal truly compliments this fresh, fruity salad. It is the ideal light and crunchy lunch for a hot summer day.
