Welcome back fit fam!
Let’s talk protein pancakes… As I’ve said before, I am gluten free for medical reasons. I’ve had a hard time finding and adjusting to gluten free pancakes as most don’t taste the same. The same goes for protein pancakes, they just aren’t good old fashioned pancakes! I’ve been searching and searching for a good, easy, protein pancake and I’m here to say I found it. Would you believe me if I said its a cake mix too?
Lil Buff Protein Cake Mix (@lilbuffprotein) is as you can guess, a cake mix. It comes in “Fit-Fetti”, “Cocoa Crave”, and “Leaner Lemon”. I wasn’t sure what to think because I found out about it from one of their sponsored athletes (sponsored athletes or ambassadors have to like the company and talk highly lol), but I decided to order a single serve bag anyway.
When I received my package I, of course, opened it right away. Included was a thank you card which you just don’t see companies do anymore. Also included was the cake mix recipe card with a protein frosting recipe as well. The small hand touches about this company I loved and already made me want to order again and I hadn’t even tried it!
Fast forward to testing day lol… Since I have been looking for a protein pancake recipe I decided to use it to make protein pancakes instead of the cake (recipe below). Once I mixed all the ingredients together I noticed it was pretty thick but before cooking already smelled good. Due to the mix being thick, I just had to guess when to flip them over since it never really bubbled through (don’t worry I didn’t burn them and had I, I still would have eaten them lol). Once they were done, I decided to try them without any topping. I found they were sweet enough that they didn’t need any toppings. However I would recommend sugar free syrup, nut butter, or peanut butter if you want a topping. They were super fluffy, sweet, easy to make, and just all around flavorful.
I definitely will be ordering through Lil buff Protein Cake Mix again and I recommend you try them out as well! Next order I plan on ordering all the flavors to try, and making an actual cake, and some brownies too.
Here are the macros for the cooked serving of cake mix (didn’t add in the 30grams pancake mix)
- Carbs- 21g
Here is the recipe that I followed!
- 1 bag Lil Buff Protein Cake Mix
- 30 grams pancake mix (of your choice)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 1 egg white (3 tablespoons)
- 2 tablespoons almond milk (or milk of choice)
Mix ingredients together and cook as regular pancake!
I hope you enjoyed this blog! I definitely recommend Lil Buff Protein Cake Mix, however I am in no way sponsored by this company and I am not getting paid for writing this.
