Alright, so I have been really blessed to have my first few FitFluential reviews with some pretty great companies. First with Reebok, and now with ProCakes, a high-protein pancake mix that is gluten-free and still tastes amazing!
One of the very hard things about Paleo is not being able to enjoy my protein pancakes, which are unfortunately made with ground oats. When I heard about ProCakes, I knew I had to get on a new way of enjoying pancakes that didn’t upset my stomach.
Now I do enjoy Paleo pancakes from time to time, but the density of those just aren’t always appealing to me. ProCakes tastes decadent, and like a real pancake. Founder Caren Magill, who is also a personal trainer, wanted to “provide real food solutions for people who care about what they eat and how that translates into the quality of life they live.”
ProCakes comes in flour form, and is lightly sweetened with Xylitol, a sugar derived from fruits and veggies. The great thing about this, is that it’s absorbed more slowly in the blood stream, meaning that it’s not a sugar that spikes your blood sugar!
Another perk to ProCakes, is that you only have to measure out the amount for your serving size, and then simply add in an egg and milk (or substitute of choice). You don’t have to pull out your blender, and blend oatmeal until it’s a flour, etc, etc, etc. Before Caren even finalized the ingredient list for ProCakes, she tested out using egg powder over a real egg, and decided that since the pancakes tasted better with fresh, real ingredients, she has the pancake maker add them in on their end.
