Powercakes aren’t just for flapjacks, they make next level waffles too! The process is exactly the same as making flapjacks except you pour the batter onto a waffle iron. I went one step further and topped my waffles off with mixed berries, powdered sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup. This is all you need:

Feed me all of the Kodiak Cakes. All of them. My friends at Kodiak Cakes sent me a case (6 boxes!) of their protein packed, whole wheat Power Cakes and I’ve been experimenting with them ever since. Cookies, crepes, muffins, you name it, but you can never go wrong with a big hot stack of pancakes. I took it one step further by adding some more protein, creamy almond butter, dark chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, and fruit. Check out these stacks!

2 egg whites
1/2 sliced medium banana
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract

+ Combine Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes Mix with water, egg whites, cinnamon and vanilla extract.

Pancakes are hands down one of the most beloved breakfasts in America. It’s hard to say many bad things about pancakes but when you’re trying to find a way to have an incredible breakfast you shouldn’t have to choose between healthy and delicious. That’s why I reached out to my friends at Kodiak Cakes after I saw them earn two offers on Shark Tank. They make a variety of healthful pancake mixes and when I saw they have a high protein whole wheat pancake mix I had to try it. Eventually we worked out a deal where I would get to GIVE AWAY a whole case (6 boxes) of this awesome mix for free to one of my followers on my Instagram and I got a case myself to try. I still make these pancakes at least once a week now and I want to share the recipe and nutrition info with you.

This pales in comparison to traditional pancake mixes which offer higher carbohydrates with little protein that leave you unsatisfied and generally consuming much more than the serving size. Assuming you only have 1 serving of regular pancake mix, here’s what your nutrition breakdown looks like before you drown them in syrup.

With my Power Cakes mix I not only get a more satisfying, balanced meal that I can portion perfectly, but my carbohydrates are also coming from a more wholesome source (whole grain vs. refined flour). In addition to my large protein serving, I’m also getting 5 grams of fiber to keep me fuller longer.
