Savor Mornings with NEW Oatmeal Pancakes from Aunt Jemima® Frozen Breakfast
MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J., (Aug. 23, 2011)-- Aunt Jemima® Frozen Breakfast, a portfolio brand of Pinnacle Foods Group LLC, announced a new addition to their pancake family today, Oatmeal Pancakes. The launch of the new Oatmeal Pancakes gives families another hearty breakfast option and reason to gather around the table for a warm breakfast. Made with rolled oats, oat bran and oat flour mixed right into the batter, the new wholesome option from the iconic breakfast brand contains as much fiber as a cup of prepared oatmeal but with the great taste of pancakes.*
"Because we use real ingredients and make every batch from scratch, our Oatmeal Pancakes – and all of our frozen pancakes, waffles and French Toast – taste just like homemade," says Andy Reichgut, Vice President of Marketing, Pinnacle Foods. "The new Oatmeal Pancakes are made with natural ingredients and provide families with another wholesome Aunt Jemima Frozen Breakfast option that families can feel good about eating without sacrificing taste."
With four grams of fiber per serving, Oatmeal Pancakes provide the nutritional benefits of real oats in the form of delicious pancakes. Rolled oats and oat bran are a good source of fiber and are well known for their heart-healthy benefits, including lowering total cholesterol and helping to control blood pressure. In addition to reducing the risk of heart disease, the fiber in oats can help with weight control because it makes people feel fuller, longer.**
Aunt Jemima Frozen Breakfast also partnered with celebrity chef Aaron McCargo, Jr., to develop a series of recipes using Aunt Jemima Frozen Breakfast products like his Slamming Bananas Foster featuring the new Oatmeal Pancakes.
