Bikini Scale Rating (1-5): 👙👙👙
Next to peanut butter, pancakes are my crutch. I love pancakes and everything else to do with breakfast. I tend to hate my life when I am cutting carbs or excluding grains from my diet mainly because I don’t get to eat pancakes. (The harsh reality of carb cycling). My protein pancakes tend to suck. They break off into little pieces in the pan and end up half-cooked, half-mush. So, needless to say, I was pretty stoked when I saw this bad boy pop up on my instagram feed. I ordered all three flavors (of course, because I am a glutton) and will also review them each in a different post.
PROS: This pancake mix is very versatile and can be used as the base for numerous treats and goodies. I tried their “Outrageous Banana Bread” recipe and it was delicious! It was very moist, very banana-y (as banana bread should be). It also packs a pretty decent protein-to-carb ratio as far as a supplement product goes and it doesn’t make me feel too guilty after I eat it. I would consider it a great option for breakfast and for a cheat meal.
CONS: I would say by itself it doesn’t have a very strong banana taste (as much as I would like anyway). I actually prefer the original mix for when I am making pancakes and like this more for baking. It is also a little expensive but not nearly as expensive as the other “protein-pancake-mix-gimmicks” out there. You might be able to find it on Amazon cheaper. 🙂
Overall: I’d recommend it. Three out of five bikini rating – 👙👙👙
