Fresh Fruit and Protein Pancakes
Kids love pancakes. Grown-ups do, too. I’ve been loving making pancakes with Park City Kodiak Power Cakes Flapjack and Waffle Mix to sneak some protein into an otherwise decadent breakfast. This Buttermilk flavor is my favorite, and you can mix it with water, with water and eggs, or milk and eggs. Each version has a different amount of protein per serving. For this batch, I used water and eggs.
On this occasion, I made these flapjacks three different ways: one with no fruit (for the three year old), one with bananas (for the nine year old), and one with bananas and blueberries.
Plain Jane Pancakes
The youngest flapjack fan requested no fruit in her pancakes. I mixed up the batter with water and eggs, making the protein content rise to 17g per serving. The kiddos love a pyramid stack, so I made the cakes larger for the base and smaller as it rose. Pancake stack number one was a big success with a little girl.
Stack Two: Bananamania
The nine year old wanted bananas in her pancakes, but no blueberries. I added some more of the batter to the measuring cup and added some sliced bananas. Using the measuring cup helps to pour the batter into the pan with more control. These golden cakes did not last long.
For my breakfast, I mixed in blueberries and bananas and then showered the stack with the remaining fruit. I can’t wait to do this again.
