I sent my dear friend, who lives on the West Coast, some goodies from Hawaii for Christmas and she shared this photo. She made these yummy taro macadamia nut pancakes from the mix I got her. Looks delish! I love taro- that’s how poi (a Hawaiian staple) is made from. I found an article with interesting health facts about taro: https://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/other/taro-root.html
Macadamia nuts are very popular in Hawaii. It’s like gold here. As most nuts are healthy, here is what macadamia nuts are good for: http://foodfacts.mercola.com/macadamia.html.
When I was growing up, I remember Taro Brand® for their poi and chop suey mix. Now, they’ve expanded and make a variety of different products, such as pancake mixes. Visit their website to order: https://www.tarobrand.com/products.

TGIF! Have a great weekend!
