ProCakes Protein Pancake Mix Review

As you guys probably know by now, food and free stuff are two of my favorite things in life. So I was SUPER excited when I got the opportunity to review a free sample of ProCakes Protein Pancake Mix as a FitFluential Ambassador.

Disclosure: I was provided this product free of charge for review. I was not compensated for my time. All thoughts and opinions are all my own. Obvs :)

According to the company, ProCakes is "a high protein pancake mix, designed to satisfy cravings for comfort food while providing a healthy dose of protein to help maintain a lean and strong body," plus it's gluten free and has awesome nutritional stats:

But, I'm not gonna lie, when I saw the suggested serving size was 3 pancakes I was all like:

I decided to mix up a batch anyways. I assembled my ingredients...

And mixed everything together. 

Because I used coconut milk, I followed the package directions and added about 1/2 cup instead of 1/3 cup of dairy milk, which seemed to give me a nice pancake batter consistency.

Then I cooked my three (pretty large) pancakes over low heat until they started to bubble, flipped them without any sticking, and cooked some more until they felt firm in the middle.

I have to admit, I was impressed with the size of the resulting stack.

But how do they taste? 

Delicious! The texture is just right, not too dense like some high protein mixes or too grainy like gluten free baked goods can be. And after adding my egg and coconut milk and loading them up with 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt and 1 cup of frozen berries, I had a filling, under 400 calorie breakfast with 27 grams of protein!  

Bottom Line:

These pancakes were easy to make, tasted great, and have good nutritional value. The only downside is that the mix is a little pricey. The $17.99 bag with free Amazon Prime shipping still works out to about $2.25 a serving, so it's definitely worth it to have a bag around for a quick nutritious breakfast option.
