I think we all know my obsession with breakfast and just how much I love a good pancake or waffle.
However, as much I as do love them, I’m not all that into making them from scratch. Even though some recipes only call for minimal ingredients it still involves measuring flour, which more often than not ends up all over the kitchen counter and floor. I know there are a lot of quick mixes out there to help alleviate the process, but most of the time they’re filled with ingredients that I can’t seem to pronounce.
Enter: Kodiak Cakes.
They have been my go-to pancake/waffle mix for a while now and you may or may not have seen me use their whole wheat, oat, & honey mix every now and then.
3 reasons why I love Kodiak Cakes:
1) Few ingredients. I can read all of them and actually know what they are.
2) 100% whole grain. They taste great and actually keep me full.
3) Just add water. It’s a 1:1 ratio of the mix and fresh water. And thats it!
They kindly sent me both their flavors to try and as a fan of the whole wheat, oat, and honey already, I was pretty certain I’d also love the buttermilk and honey. Now I know for a fact you can’t go wrong with either.
They’re so simple to make and easily customizable to your personal preference. Whether you like your pancakes lighter or more dense, all you have to do is add more or less water. It’s all up to you!
I tend to change it up every now and then. If I feel like I want something more filling, I’ll make pancakes with slightly less water, sometimes stirring in some additional flax meal, chia seeds, or fresh fruit.
And if I’m feeling like something lighter, I tend to go for waffles. They always come out crisp on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. Pretty much my idea of a perfect waffle.
And of course toppings! Can’t forget them. Depending on my mood, I like anything from coconut oil to coconut or nut butter. But most recently my favorite has been a simple drizzle of coconut oil + maple syrup. Amazing.
And now the best part. Kodiak Cakes wants to give three of you the chance to try a box of their flapjack and waffle mixes for yourself!
