When two of my favorite brands get together and have a recipe contest, I definitely create an entry! Bob’s Red Mill and Sambazon joined together to create the #SuperFoodShowdown. What is a superfood you might ask? A superfood is a food that contains extra health benefits. The Acai berry is a purple berry superfood that grows on the banks of the Amazon. It is known as one of the healthiest foods on the planet and is treasured by many for the restorative powers that it holds. Sambazon harvests the Acai sustainably, in ways that nurture and enrich the Amazon. These berries are not only good for your body, but they are good for our planet. The other sponsor of this contest is Bob’s Red Mill. I have shared my love of Bob’s Red Mill in many previous posts and recipes. Before I share the delicious recipe there is a super easy way you can vote for my pancakes. All you need to do is click here and then like or heart my photo. You have to have or create an Instagram account to vote. Please take a few seconds and vote for my recipe. If we have the most votes on our recipe, we will win 2 new amazing appliances for our school kitchen, a Vitamix and a Kitchen Aid mixer. If you have been to our tiny school kitchen you know what a blessing these appliances will be. I promise we will put these two items to good use everyday in our school lunch program. Thank you for voting!
