Banana Nut Pancakes + New Stores!


Let's celebrate our arrival to Meijer stores with some Banana Nut Pancakes this weekend! Find a store near you

While you're there, pick up a box of our Banana Bread Mix and some walnuts or pecans to wow your family with this Banana Nut Pancake recipe. We promise, they won't disappoint!

You will need:

  • 1 box Banana Bread Mix
  • ¾ - 1 cup water
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 bananas
  • ½ cup walnuts or pecans 


Mash the bananas in a large mixing bowl. Add in the rest of the ingredients, including your Banana Bread Mix packet, and stir until thoroughly combined.

Warm a griddle or nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spray or wipe with cooking oil.

Pour ¼ cup of the batter onto the skillet or griddle. When the surface forms tiny bubbles, use a thin spatula to quickly flip the pancake. Cook for another 30-60 seconds, or until the second side is golden brown.

Serve warm with syrup and a sprinkling of chopped nuts. Enjoy! 


Caramelized Banana Bread

If you're like me, you have unexpected brunch guests ALL THE TIME! They just keep showing up...but I definitely don't mind! 

Make your next brunch a stunner with our Cherryvale Farms Banana Bread Mix topped with a caramelized banana. Simply split in half, and place on top of prepared banana bread loaf before you pop it in the oven. During the last 10 minutes of baking, sprinkle with sugar for an extra caramelized crunch. Your guests won't believe you didn't make this banana bread from scratch!

This twist on our Banana Bread Mix (and awesome photo!) comes to us from Sheil Shukla, better known as @plantbasedartist on Instagram. 



A Very Important Mother's Day 2017

This is a very exciting post for me to write, as it's my first Mother's Day as a mom! Six months ago I welcomed my daughter Paloma to the world and my life hasn't been the same since!


On this, my first Mother's Day, I'm hopeful my daughter will grow up to be proud of her mom, knowing that I've worked so hard to grow our company and that she's a part of our success. I spent much of 2016 pregnant and on the road pitching our business to potential investors and, whew! was I exhausted! But I knew and know that all of my hard work on this business will inspire her to do anything she sets her mind to some day. Who knows, maybe she'll even be a CEO like her mom!

When I think of other moms, fans like you, that love our products, I'm so thankful to the community of families we serve. I now know what it's like to balance work and family, the challenge of getting healthy food on the table at dinnertime and the squabbles that always ensue when it comes to cleaning the kitchen afterward! 

This experience of being a mom renews my appreciation that our products are so convenient and easy for busy families. That our recipes really only require one bowl, one spoon and one pan to prepare. That it’s actually possible to get delicious, healthy baked goods in the oven in less than five minutes. And that you never have to worry about your little ones licking the spoon, because our recipes don't need eggs.

So, happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Cheers to us and I hope your little ones bake you some Cherryvale Farms this holiday...and do the dishes afterward :)

Spicy Cornbread Waffles

When in doubt, waffle it, right?! Any baking mix, with a few easy tweaks, can be made into waffles. 

Blogger Lillian from CookingOnCall waffled our savory Cornbread Mix with amazing results! 

To recreate this cozy treat at home, start with Cherryvale Farms Cornbread Mix, prepare per directions on the box and add 1/2 cup diced chives and 1/8 cup chopped jalapeños (if you love spice!). 

If batter is too thick, thin it with a little extra water so you can pour into your waffle maker. Follow your waffle maker's instructions to bake and drizzle with some general tsos sauce and more chives. Great as a side to some fried chicken or fried tempeh! 






Berry Muffins In a Snap!

One of the reasons I love our Blueberry Muffin Mix so much is its versatility. You can use ANY kind of berries! And fresh or frozen berries work great, while still giving you that fresh from the farmers market taste. 

Blogger and baker Caroline Granger (also known as @carolinecooksclean on Instagram) went rogue with not just blueberries in our Blueberry Muffin Mix, but also raspberries and blackberries. Amazing what that berry blend from your grocer's freezer section can do! 

Make your muffins as colorful as Caroline's by subbing the recommended 1 cup of blueberries with one cup of any berry blend you like! Go wild with raspberries, blackberries, tayberries, boysenberries, mulberries, even strawberries (diced into 1/4 inch pieces). In less than five minutes, your berry muffins will be ready for the oven and you'll only need to watch one pan and one spoon. Pretty darn easy, if you ask me!

Prepare Chocolate Brownie Mix according to directions on box (simply mix with 1/2 cup vegan butter and 1/3 cup water - reserve chopped walnuts to scatter on top of Brownie layer). Set aside.

Sprinkle brownie layer with 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (any nuts are fine if you prefer something else). 

Next, spread remaining half of Pumpkin Spice Bread batter evenly on top. 

Bake at 375 for 50 - 55 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into bottom layer of pumpkin bread comes out clean.
