3 Ingredient Kodiak Pancake Recipe

Kodiak pancake mix is a healthier alternative to some of the more processed mixes out there. But it can result in flat, drab-tasting flapjacks if you follow the basic directions on the box.

This easy Kodiak pancake recipe adds two more ingredients to make your pancakes fluffier, more flavorful, and more nutritious. Plus I give you multiple variations to suit your tastes.

Kodiak Pancake Mix

The main ingredient in this pancake recipe is Kodiak Cakes “Power Cakes” mix. This particular pancake mix has more protein than most with 14 grams per serving.

In addition, it has no artificial flavors, colors, or ingredients that you normally find in pancake mixes. And it uses whole grain as an alternative to flour. Below is the list of all the ingredients.

Kodiak Pancake Mix Nutrition

A serving size for Kodiak pancake mix is 1/2 cup and makes about 3, 4″ diameter pancakes. If you follow the basic instructions on the box the nutrition information is as follows:

  • 190 calories
  • 2 grams fat
  • 30 grams carbs
  • 14 grams protein

The extra protein makes the nutrition better than your average pancake mix. And it has less sodium than most brands, including other healthy options like Krusteaz Protein Pancake Mix.

But I’m going to show you how to make Kodiak pancakes even more nutritious by adding protein powder and Greek yogurt!

High Protein Kodiak Pancake Recipe

This recipe will make your Kodiak cakes fluffier and more nutrient-dense than the standard instructions on the box.

Ingredients

Yield: About 8, 4″ pancakes

Kodiak Pancake Recipe Ingredients
Instructions
  • Mix the pancake mix, protein powder, and Greek yogurt in a medium bowl before slowly stirring in the water. Note: you may need more or less water if you use a different protein powder. The batter should be somewhat viscous, not too runny.
  • Stir the ingredients with a fork or whisk until everything is blended together and there are minimal chunks. But don’t overmix the batter or it will start to get thin!
  • Heat a pan or griddle to medium-high heat and coat with non-stick cooking spray or a small amount of butter or oil to prevent the batter from sticking. You may need to play with your cooktop or stovetop to find the ideal temperature setting. Too low and the pancakes won’t bubble, too high and they’ll blacken.
  • Slowly pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot surface. The slower the better because this will make a thicker, fluffier pancake. Pour into the center of the circle to make it symmetrical.
  • Cook for about 2 minutes until bubbles start to form on top. The edges should be golden brown and you should be able to easily slide a spatula underneath.
  • Flip the pancake and cook for another 1-2 minutes until cooked all the way through and golden brown on both sides. Remove the finished pancake and repeat the process until the batter is gone. You can do multiple pancakes at once if your cooking surface is large enough.
  • Top pancakes with a small amount of butter (optional) and maple syrup or agave syrup. For this recipe, I recommend about 1 tbsp of syrup per 2 pancakes.
