Samurai Cereal Buttermilk Pancakes Samurai Cereal Buttermilk Pancakes
This is one of my favorite ways to use left-over Samurai Cereal. The pancakes melt in your mouth while providing you a healthy low glycemic burn of whole grain carbohydrates.

1 1/2 Cups Cooked Samurai Cereal
1 Cup Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
3 tsp Sugar
2 Eggs
2 Cups Buttermilk

Blend all ingredients and cook on a hot prepared skillet.

Samurai Cereal Egg Bowl
Here is another race day or big training day secret. It's also great for those days when you know that work is going to be a grind and you don't know when you'll get lunch. It's perfect--low glycemic carbs, protein and a bit of fat. This breakfast takes about 2 minutes to prepare to allow you the most time to sleep in!

1 to 1 1/2 cups Cooked Samurai Cereal
1 egg
1 to 2 oz. sliced cheese (dill Havarti is my favorite)
salt and pepper to taste

Place the Samurai Cereal in an appropriate sized microwavable bowl. Make a well by pushing a spoon into the middle of the cereal. Crack an egg into the well and cover with sliced cheese. Cover bowl with a plate. Microwave on high for approximately 90 seconds (cooking time will vary) or until desired egg doneness.
