Krusteaz – Protein Pancakes made Easy! #Review

protein pancakes

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!

About Krusteaz:

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.

Instructions:

  1. Heat pancake griddle to 375°F (medium heat). Lightly grease griddle.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

If you’re like me, you’re already dreading the new school year that’s quickly approaching. You are going to want to keep a box (or two) of Krusteaz Protein Buttermilk Pancake Mix in your pantry. It’s a quick and easy breakfast and will hold the kiddos until their lunch time rolls around!

  16. These cakes look great, I like the fact that they are so satisfying and keep you full longer. These would be great for my kids when they start school, their lunchtime is around 1:00 which is a long time from breakfast!

  17. I love that they are loaded with protein to hold you over all day, it’s hard to find a breakfast option that doesn’t leave that “snacky” feeling by mid lunch.

  18. I have been using Krusteaz brand since I can remember,my mom used to buy them. I didn’t know Krusteaz had so many varieties of pancake mixes but I have bought the Lemon Bar mix.

  19. This company has great products. I would love to try their pancake mixes. I love that I only need to add water and that there is protein added to the mix. I use to be bad at pancakes and would make a mess by turning them too soon. I learned to toss a little water on griddle or pan and if it bubbles it should be ready. Also do not turn until the pancakes have bubbles.

  20. I am so happy that you said it sustains you until dinner. I have to lose 10 pounds before my sons wedding and this just might help me get there. even if I don’t win…I plan to try them….I love Krusteaz products. their cookies are the absolute best. course the cookies are not going to help me lose those 10 pounds…

  26. This might be a silly thing I learned, but I have always wondered how you were supposed to pronounce Krusteaz! I love all their desert mixes and would say we needed to buy some ” krust-ehhz, krustie… those really good mixes in the cake isle!”

    Reply
  27. These look so delicious and I like the fact that they are also healthy. I think pancakes are good anytime day or night. I try to keep a bunch in the freezer so we can just pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds and have a hot treat.

  28. If I can get my protein in pancakes that’s how I’m getting mine from now on! Glad to hear the mixes are so easy to make – I tried making pancakes from scratch once and it wasn’t pretty.

  39. I really like Krusteaz, and its really simply to make. I do like making my own recipe on a daily basis, but we always bring Krusteaz pancake mix for camping, hiking, and traveling purposed, because its so easy to make up. I like the idea of having protein in the mix, because we usually are camping, and adding that extra protein would be a real plus.

  40. We use Krusteaz Waffle mix (simply the best!) ~ but never knew they had a Protein Pancake mix!! Protein is such an important part of a diet, especially in the morning. I’m thinking it’s perfect for breakfast before school for the kids…should keep them going all day! What a great product find!! Thanks!

  41. I have made these a few times a while ago. Completely agree that the texture is flawless! And they don’t taste flat like other pancake mixes. And the possibilities for creations are endless. Even for savory!

  44. I have to try these pancakes, sounds delicious, and yet has protein. I can see this would be a very versatile mix to experiment with. I’ve bought Krusteaz over the years and always loved the flavor.

  45. Pancakes are versatile in that they also make a great dinner food. I bet we eat them for dinner more often than we eat them for breakfast.

  46. Krusteaz is my favorite mix for pancakes and waffles! I will have to look for the protein ones. We could use extra protein and what better way than in my favorite breakfast food?

  49. I love Krusteaz pancake mix. I didn’t know they have the protein type available. I tried the waffle mix, but not near as good as pancake mix, so I use it to make waffles. Thanks for sharing this information!
