Did you know that February is American Heart Month? Yes, I realize that many of us spent the weekend munching on Valentine's candy but let's move past that right now. To help us eat heart healthy, the folks at Post cereals contacted me to let me know that they've partnered with Walgreens to offer some of their healthy cereals. You'll be able to pick up a box of Post Honey Bunches of Oats, Fruity Pebbles, Great Grains or Grape Nuts so, that's just what I did.
1 3/4 Cups all purpose flour
3 Tablespoons sugar
2 Teaspoons baking powder
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/4 Teaspoon baking soda
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into 1" pieces
1/2 Cup low fat buttermilk
1 Teaspoon vanilla
1 Banana, preferably over-ripe, and mashed
1/2 cup Post Grape Nuts cereal
1 Tablespoon buttermilk for topping
1 Tablespoon sugar for topping
1 Tablespoon cereal for topping
In a separate bowl, mix together the egg, buttermilk, vanilla and mashed banana. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix. Fold in the cereal and turn the dough out on a floured board. You can either shape it into a disk (about 9") or place it into a shallow pie dish. Brush the top with the tablespoon of buttermilk and sprinkle on the sugar and cereal.
