Great Way to Get Your Protein

ProCakes Protein Pancake Mix was sent to me by ProCakes for my review.  I do not review products that I do not feel would be a good fit for my audience or are something I would not use myself.  All thoughts and opinions in this post are my own.



Are you always looking for great tasting ways to get more protein in your diet?
I'd like to tell you about a great product I just tried called ProCakes.  With over 20 grams of protein per serving, gluten free, no sugar added, and only 165 calories per serving.

The products claim was that it not only provides you with a high amount of protein, but that it will satisfy your hunger cravings.  A lot of you know I have been in the process this past month changing my diet, into an even healthier lifestyle.  So I am always looking for low calorie options that make me fill full.
One serving of pancakes (3 pancakes) is only 165 calories, and since I try to keep my breakfasts at or around 200 or less calories, this was a perfect fit for me.


EASY TO MAKE
ProCakes were super easy to make, all I had to do was mix 1 egg and 1/3 cup 2% milk in a bowl and then add the pancake mixture, mix and then put them on the grill.

TASTE
Sometimes when you eat something that is healthy and good for you, you have to sacrifice a little of the taste.  But not with ProCakes they tasted pretty good.  I would definitely eat these again for breakfasts.
I did add a little buttery syrup to mine.  If I had, blueberries on hand I would have loved to stack some of those on them too.  But overall I was pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed them.

FILLING
ProCakes one serving is 3 pancakes and generally when I eat pancakes 2 is my limit, but since the calories were lower I went ahead and ate all three.  I honestly did feel very full after eating them, I easily could have just ate two and likely would have had my fill.
I love this because when dieting the worst thing is to eat and then thirty minutes later your stomach is already hungry.  Not with these, I didn't even snack again until lunch.


OVERALL OPINION
I did enjoy these pancakes, they filled me up and tasted just like a pancake should.  They are quick and easy to make and I love the low calories and of course the fact that you get 20 grams of protein.  So yes, these are something I would try again, and definitely a product that I recommend you try.
