Protein Packed Pancakes 

If I told you I’ve lost 19 lbs and eaten pancakes almost every day, would you believe me? Well I have! These cakes offer a whopping 21 grams of protein and they keep me full for so long that I often don’t think I’ll use up all of my points for that day. I love to spice mine up with some canned pumpkin or a mashed banana and then top with fruit, cinnamon, or some sugar free syrup. 

To make them I use Kodiak Cakes pancake mix and then I add some things In to mix it up and pack in some extra nutrients. 

The Pumpkin Version (6sp)

1/2 cup Kodiak Cakes Protein Blend

1/4 cup puréed pumpkin

2 egg whites

1/2 cup water 

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp cloves

1 tbsp sugar free syrup 
I combine all of the ingredients into a bowl, mix until it’s all blended together.

Put a bit of coconut oil or Pam onto a  non-stick pan that’s heated over medium heat. 

Then pour 1/4 cup of batter on to the pan and heat until the top begins to bubble

Flip and cook until the other side is browned and the inside of the cake is no longer doughy.

I like to top mine with additional cinnamon and eat them as is, but if you want to add more syrup or fruit they are delicious that way too! 

The Banana Version (6sp)

1/2 cup Kodiak Cakes Protein Blend

1/2 cup almond milk 

1 banana mashed 

2 egg whites

2 tsp vanilla

2 tsp cinnamon

1 pinch of salt 
Mix and mash everything together in a bowl– Cooking and serving instructions are the same as the pumpkin ones.

Enjoy!

Bye Bye Muffin Top 🙂
