Krusteaz – Protein Pancakes made Easy! #Review
I’m going to be completely transparent here for just a moment. I like to cook. My family likes to eat. I like pancakes. I’ve NEVER been able to make decent pancakes. They were either too runny or they would burn or they were too hard… it was always something. Until I got the Krusteaz protein pancakes mix, a little box of yumminess in the mail! Krusteaz put the ease in pancake making for this mama!
In 1932 the women of a Seattle bridge club had a simple idea for an easy-to-make pie crust. They called it “Crust Ease” (a clever combination of “crust” and “ease”), and little did they know it would lead to a wide variety of home-baked goods enjoyed by everyone around the country.
I was amazed at how truly simple it was to make delicious pancakes and protein pancakes to boot, added nutrition but all flavor! Apparently I’ve been doing it wrong for a lot of years! It took about a minute and a half to mix the batter up (all you need is the mix and water – TOO simple!). Let my pan get good and hot. In about 5 minutes I was eating a nice fluffy stack of pancake goodness.
- Heat pancake griddle to 375°F (medium heat). Lightly grease griddle.
- Whisk pancake mix and water. Batter will be slightly lumpy. Do not over-mix. Let batter stand 2 minutes. Pour slightly less than ¼ cup batter per pancake onto griddle.
- Cook protein pancakes 1¾ – 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown, turning only once.
I chose to put some walnuts in mine and top with coconut nectar and strawberries – So tasty! These Buttermilk Protein pancakes held me all day long. I’ve never had pancakes satisfy me like that, normally in an hour or so I’m looking for a snack. Not this time. I didn’t eat again until dinner so not only were these protein pancakes super delicious they sustained me all day.
