Redbean pancakes.  
I really, really love redbean cakes, but the premade ones are really expensive. I've found that a really good replacement is regular pancakes sandwiched around canned redbean paste.

You can use the premade, frozen pancakes for this, but I've found that buckwheat pancakes are really great (you can get a mix for them). It's also good on waffles.

Just take a few tablespoons and pile in the middle of a pancake and place another pancake on top.


You can get a bunch of different brands of the red bean paste, some with less sugar/corn syrup, some with few calories, some with high fiber, and some with extra vitamins and minerals. I find them at a local store next to a Japanese restaurant. You can find them at most Asian markets.

The red bean paste is also good on icecream, toast, and peanut butter sandwiches (as a substitute for jellies and jams).
