Flipping Over Flapjacks

Kodiak from Nikon

I can only eat so much steel-cut oatmeal and blueberries for breakfast. I know it’s good for me and it’s certainly harder to keep the weight off these days, but I need a good stack of pancakes every once in a while.  Thanks to a tip from our super healthy friends in Honolulu, I now have permission to fire up the griddle more often.

Our friends turned us on to to Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes.  I guess the brand has been around since 1995, and was even featured on the TV show, Shark Tank, but we were not in the know.  While visiting in Hawaii, we found the product at the local Costco.  Worried it was a “Hawaii-only” phenomenon, Lailan immediately called our nearest Costco in Kansas City.  Boom! They had the product and that was our first stop when we got back to KC.

Packed with protein, 100% whole grain wheat flour, and other ingredients including no added fat, sugar or cholesterol, we feel much better about the occasional pancake splurge.  Too bad I found an old bottle of Mrs. Butterworth’s Original syrup in the pantry!
