It’s the last day of my Game On Health Challenge and I couldn’t be more excited to share this recipe with you! Kodiak Cakes are one of my favorite products. These flapjacks (or pancakes as I commonly call them) have been a staple over the lat six weeks. With intense exercising and careful calorie counting I needed a breakfast that I could feel good about, with an ingredient list that I approve of, and simple to throw together during my rushed mornings. I fell in love with Kodiak Cakes a little over a year ago and haven’t looked back since. When I was sent a preview of their newest product I was overly excited! I knew I loved the Whole Wheat Oat & Honey and the Whole Wheat Buttermilk & Honey. But what about the Protein Packed?
Just as soon as I could, I whipped up a batch of these to test them out. Would they be as good as the others? Would they taste extra ‘healthy’? One bite in and the result? I think I love them MORE than the others I already love so much. Is that even possible? This mix is delicious! Not only are they tasty but I love that they provide up to 21 grams of protein!
A year and a half ago when we completed our 30-day juice fast we began looking at food in a different way and certain things became more important to us. I deemed myself a self-proclaimed ‘label looker’. There is so much crap being put in to foods these days and if you don’t educate yourself you could be doing more harm than good with the food you eat. I 100% approve of all the ingredients in the Kodak Cakes products! The fact that this flapjack & waffle mix is all-natural and non-gmo brings a pitter patter to my heart. The best part about it, is that it is delicious!
You can serve these flapjacks three ways for three protein options:
- Option 1: 14 grams of protein, just add water
- Option 2: 18 grams of protein, just add milk
- Option 3: 21 grams of protein, add milk and an egg
I tried all three options and they all are tasty. My favorite way honestly would be option 1, just adding water. Seems kind of crazy – but it’s the easiest method and most delicious to me. The other two are good too, I just prefer the flavor of the first option. It’s nice to have choices depending on what your protein goals are!
I am so excited that Kodiak Cakes has graciously offered to give away their brand new product to FIVE lucky winners! Entering is easy! All you have to do is follow the directions in the Rafflecopter below:
Protein Packed Flapjacks
These Kodiak Cakes Protein Packed Flapjacks are ready in an instant and taste amazing.
- 1 c. Kodiak Cakes Protein Packed Flapjack & Waffle Mix
- 1 c. water
Mix together water and mix. Pour 1/4 c. batter on a preheated, lightly oiled griddle set at 375 F, or on a skillet set at medium.
Flip flapjacks after bubbles stop forming and bottom side is golden brown. Cook opposite side until golden brown.
My favorite way to enjoy these pancakes are with a tsp of coconut oil lightly spread instead of butter and 1/8 c. real maple syrup. Served with 2 fried or scrambled eggs it's a complete breakfast!
For thicker pancakes, add less water and add more water for thinner pancakes.
