Happy Pancake Day!!! How can you not love a day to celebrate one of the most popular breakfast foods ever?
In our house pancakes could be a food group. If you asked Al, she would vigorously defend it’s position in the food pyramid (wait, is that still a thing?) I think I’m showing my age with that reference.
ANYHOW…we make pancakes on the regular and while we’re creatures of habit in a lot of ways, Al’s more adventurous and has challenged us to think bigger when it comes to her beloved food.
It’s funny because I’m not one to do a lot of sponsored posts but when Krusteaz reached out and offered to send us some pancake mix, I felt like for the sake of my family, I couldn’t turn it down. It’s perfect for a family like ours. You just add water and make!
Krusteaz’s new Buttermilk Protein Pancake Mix is packed with 15 grams of protein per serving. In addition, the mix provides a full better-for-you nutrition profile including:
- 4 grams of fiber
- Made from 100% whole grain flour
- Contains no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.
I made Al some pancakes with Krusteaz and even beefed them up with some chocolate chips. Because that’s how we roll around here. I think you can tell that she liked them.
Yes, that’s two man sized pancaked..devoured by that little half pint. She felt like a little whipped creme would only accentuate the pancakes satisfying flavor so we thought..why not!
All in all, we really enjoyed Krusteaz and will be making it a regular grocery store staple. Would I recommend it? Yes! Pancakes are a no brainer for kids so being able to pack a little more protein in there and whole wheat flour feels good as a parent!
So let’s raise our plates and celebrate the best day of the year!!
Happy Pancake Day!
