Protein-Packed S'mores Pancakes

S'mores Pancakes

  • 1/2 Kodiak Cakes (This is a pancake mix with high amounts of protein in it)
  • 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 crushed graham crackers
  • 1 1/2 cups milk - this recipe uses Califia Farms vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 egg whites, whippe

Toppings: Walden Farms Marshmallow Dip and Chocolate Syrup. These have 0 Calories, 0 Grams of Sugar, and 0 Grams of Fat. If you haven’t tried out their products, I highly suggest it!

  1. Turn up the heat. Place a flat skillet on a medium-heat burner (I use two at once because I’m impatient). It will be all warmed up by the time you make the batter.

  2. Measure all of the liquids into a bowl. Let the vinegar sit with the milk for 5 minutes (This causes it to curdle. It sounds gross, but trust me, it makes it better)

  3. Add the dry ingredients. I like to add the baking soda and baking powder directly into the liquid - you’ll notice that they start to bubble (this is what makes the pancakes so fluffy). Put in the whipped eggs last so they don’t deflate.

  4. Mix them all together. If you over-mix the batter, the pancakes get flat and tough. I use a whisk and stir until it's slightly lumpy with some streaks of flour.

  5. Cook the batter! I use a 1/4 measuring cup to measure out the pancakes. After placing the batter in the pan, take a spoonful (approximately a tablespoon) of the marshmallow dip and dollop it on top. Next, take another 1/4 scoop of batter and cover the marshmallow.

  6. For flipping the pancake: wait until you see little bubbles rise and pop at the surface! After being flipped they only need to cook for 1-2 more minutes until they are done.

  7. Add whichever toppings you like. I used the Walden farms chocolate syrup, along with a chopped up S’mores quest bar, crushed graham crackers and some chocolate chips  (my little secret!). Enjoy!
