I love waffles; they’re one of my top foods but I don’t eat them as often anymore because I’ve been trying to eat healthier. The struggle is real when you love food but you also want to be healthier.
I came across the Kodiak Power Cakes at Costco and I was drawn to the high protein and whole grain ingredients in the product. I checked the ingredient list and it looked promising with ingredients such as whole grain wheat flour, whole grain oat flour, protein powder and dried honey as the sweetener. A chance to easily have high protein and low sugar waffles– I was sold!
There are 3 recipe options with varying levels of protein. You can use the mix to make waffles, pancakes, and muffins. Alternatively, the website says that you can be used as a healthy alternative in baking by substituting 1 cup flour with 1 cup Kodiak Cakes Mix and omit salt and baking powder.
Continuing reading to see how which option I used and how they turned out!
Although the box says that you simply mix 1 cup mix with 1 cup water to make both pancakes and waffles, I opted to make waffles with option 3 listed on the package because I like my waffles crispier on the outside. I’ve only ever used option 3 so I can’t comment on how waffles made from option 1 or option 2 would taste.
The recipe I used for Kodiak Power Cake Waffles:
1 Cup Power Cake Mix
1 Cup Almond Milk
- Add almond milk and egg to cake mix
- Blend until combined and make sure you don’t overmix the batter
- Add batter into waffle iron and cook according to your iron settings and liking
The finished product was a crispy waffle with subtle sweetness and nice flavour. Note that since there’s less sugar in the Kodak mix than regular waffle recipes, it won’t taste as sweet as most waffles but you can add syrup to sweeten it up!
Overall, I enjoyed this product and would purchase it again because of its ease of use and as a healthier alternative to regular waffle and pancake mixes.
