So, let’s get down to the tasty business here. A while ago, I got an opportunity through FitFluential to review Pro Cakes.

Pro Cakes is a high protein pancake mix, which is also gluten free, wheat free, contains 14 net carbs and over 20 grams of protein per serving.

I received this single serving of pancake mix in the mail shortly after I signed up for the review with an information card and a thank you note from the Pro Cakes founder.

I have to say – pancakes are my guilty pleasure – I could eat them for breakfast every day. Making a batch from scratch is not always feasible with my busy schedule. Making a batch from the store bought mix is not always healthy. So we make pancakes very occasionally.

This mix is a great solution to both issues above – you get a mix that just needs 1/3 cup of milk and an egg added to it (substitute with almond milk and an egg white if you feel like it) and is healthy and packed with protein. (see the full list of ingredients here)

Another thing that I loved about Pro Cakes mix is that it comes both in 13 oz bags and in 1.6 oz singe serving bags (makes 3 medium size pancakes) that are super convenient if you’re making breakfast for one or two people on a busy morning when you just have no time to measure those ingredients.

I made 4 small pancakes from my single serving sample that I received.

The pancakes were fluffy and oh SO delicious! I have to say I was skeptical to begin with – mostly because I don’t like the artificial taste of pretty much any type of added protein.

I could not taste anything funky in these pancakes.

There was no artificial powder aftertaste whatsoever.

I punched in the numbers for just the pancakes into MyFitnessPal that morning and here’s what I got:

Of course that’s not everything I ate that day, but looks pretty balanced to me for one meal – especially taking into account that the meal was PANCAKES!

I loved these pancakes and the fact that they are packed with protein without the artificial aftertaste. I would definitely recommend them!

Now tell me all about your tasty finds, guys, and don’t forget to link up your tasty posts below. Please, share, link back or grab the linkup party badge from the sidebar.

Have a wonderful week!

  1. Sadly, I’m pretty sure that mix won’t be available where I live (or it will be insanely expensive as tends to be the case). It does seem really convenient to have a mix in an individual package though. I can never seem to get pancake portions just right.

  2. Yuliya, you can buy them online, but you’re probably right – international shipping will make it ridiculously expensive 🙁

  3. You say this mix is whey free but the first ingredient on the bag is whey?? If that’s the case, then I cannot eat it 🙁

  4. I’ve never heard of these but I would try them. Sometimes you just need a pancake!

  5. Aw, thanks so much for the review Lena!! I really appreciate it and you created such a gorgeous image!! Would you mind if I used it (with appropriate credit to yourself of course).

  7. great review lena! Except, I don’t have a pancake obsession, they LOOK tasty, and I crave them, but when I decide to make them, I am always unimpressed…maybe cause I’m too obsessed with my oats to delve away from them!
