Kodiak POWER PROTEIN Cakes {Giveaway}

Sort of giveaway central around here lately. I’m getting to everything now that I’m a bit more settled. You can still enter the GLASS DHARMA giveaway and order a Bulu Box for 50% off!

I’ve been a Kodiak Cake fan for years. Sure I experiment with some “pancake” recipes, but when I need a flat out good, classic, pancake I go to the Kodiak mix in my pantry. I think I saw it first on Kath’s blog.

My friends and I enjoyed a big batch with eggs on New Years morning a few years ago. Perfectly easy and delicious after a very late night.

Kodiak Cake Breakfast

My favorite thing about Kodiak Cakes is that they are good for you- packed with whole grains and no funky ingredients – but you only need to add WATER. Just water! Seriously, these take less time to make than most simple breakfasts. Doesn’t get better than that.

Often the reason I experiment with my own pancake recipes is because I want more protein to keep me full through the morning. Regular pancakes don’t usually do that, unless paired with eggs or greek yogurt. Kodiak Cakes new protein version solves that problem! I was thrilled to have my favorite QUICK pancakes available with protein.

Kodiak Cakes Power Protein Cakes

I tried them first for the little kiddies at work. They love pancakes and their mother often added protein powder to theirs, so this was just an easier way to make breakfast. I had a batch of 8 pancakes finished in less than 10 minutes, and added blueberries and cinnamon for some flavor. You can doctor these up however you want — add chocolate chips, fruit, nuts…whatever! They are a great base.

Kodiak Cakes

The kids gobbled them up, and even the mom commented that they were REALLY good. They will be purchasing Kodiak Cakes now, and I think the muffin recipe on the box looked like a great snack option.

The other Kodiak boxes I was sent are being added to my collection for fancy weekend breakfasts. JC is pretty pumped to have me cooking for him, and I see late morning eggs and pancakes with coffee on the couch in our future.

I have found Kodiak mix in some Whole Foods, but GOOD NEWS – Kodiak Cakes are launching in Target!!! Look for them there!
