Tasty Tuesday - ProCakes Review


As a FitFluential Ambassador, I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to receive a sample of ProCakes to review.


I'm not always a big pancake eater. However, lately, I have been making more protein pancakes on the weekends, especially after a long run. So, I was very eager to try out ProCakes, even more eager when I realized how easy they were to throw together and how simple the ingredients list is.

Here's just a bit of background information from their site:
ProCakes was founded in 2014 by Caren Magill, a fitness enthusiast, bikini competitor and soon-to-be fitness trainer. She left a corporate career in social change marketing to pursue her love of healthy comfort food with zero compromise on taste and enjoyment.

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. It’s one part nutritional supplement, one part awesome baking mix. Made with no with added sugar, and no gluten, we've fused whey protein with a mix of nutrient dense flours like almond and coconut, and paired them with a mix of lighter gluten free flours to keep the overall pancake experience just like you’d expect to taste. 
Macros (after adding eggs and milk): 20 grams of protein and only 14 grams of net carbs per serving.
All you have to do is mix the packet with 1 egg and 1/3 cup milk of choice. I did choose almond milk so the macros above are going to be a little bit different.


Some protein pancake recipes I've tried can be really dense. These were light and full of flavor. And did I already mention super easy to make? Yeah, that too. I topped mine with some leftover grilled peaches and some peanut butter drizzle (not shown) and dove in.

I not only love the reasons why this company was started, but the pancakes themselves. Healthy ingredients, no added sugars, just clean and simple.
