|Okay, I can't have that many pancakes, and I skip the butter, but I am indulging |
in a healthy pancake for breakfast these days.
Depending on your nutritional needs, and taste preferences, there are so many ways to top these power cakes. We use a sugar-free syrup, and sometimes, fruit. A nut butter would increase the fat content, and boost the flavor, too. I've spread Greek yogurt on top of them as a nice variation.
|We could make three small cakes, but we make one as big as the pan,|
which fits these plates beautifully!
There are several Kodiak pancake mixes, and if you are interested in having more protein and fiber, go for the Power Cake varieties. I've tried the crunchy peanut butter, which is delicious, but I'm not sure I'm ready for the dark chocolate cakes.
|The peanut butter lover in me is thrilled about this flavor option.|
When I came back to Illinois, I was determined to make waffles out of the pancake mix. It was one of those good news/bad news things. I'll be telling you about those next!
|We use half the amount of mix, and add egg whites. It is very filling,|
and when I combine it with a protein/spinach smoothie, my total
breakfast is 280 calories, with 25 grams of carbs, 4 grams of fat,
and 36 grams of protein.
