This mornings pumpkin waffles were the best waffles I’ve ever made. That’s a bold statement, right? Well it’s true! Made with La Tourangelle Artisan Oils Pumpkin Seed Oil, these waffles had a melt in your mouth rich nutty taste. Joel couldn’t believe there wasn’t any butter added! 🙀🤤✨

Fluffy Kodiak Cakes

Pecan Pumpkin Pancakes

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

If you haven’t heard, Kodiak Cakes make pancakes, waffles, and crepes So easy. The Protein Packed Waffle mix is a huge staple in our home. Just add equal parts water to the dry mix and you are good to go!

But how do you make these easy cakes more fluffy?

Two words: Coconut Flour.

The mix taste great on it’s own, but I’ve always wondered if they could be more fluffy. Adding coconut flour, and a few other ingredients, to the mix made a huge difference.

Now get your fluffy pancakes on!

Ingredients: (Makes 6 small Fluffy pancakes, Calories 323, Carbs 38g, Protein 25g, Fat 9g)

  • 1/3 cup Kodiak Cakes protein packed waffle mix
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 2 tablespoon pumpkin pure
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon baking power
  • 1/2-1 cup water (desired consistency)
  • 1/2 tablespoon crushed raw pecans
  • 1/2 tablespoon Glazed Donut Muscle Butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

Directions: (Be patient! Coconut Flour pancakes take a little longer than regular pancakes)

  • Combine waffle mix, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin spice in a medium size bowl, set aside.
  • Whisk together 1/2 cup water, egg white, greek yogurt, pumpkin pure, and vanilla extract in a small bowl then combine with dry ingredients. Adding more water if desired (I used about 1 cup water, adding in 2 tablespoons at a time, making 6 small fluffy pancakes).
  • Heat skillet on medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Let skillet warm for about 5 minutes before cooking. Spoon batter using a 1/4 cup measuring spoon, letting the pancakes cook 3-5 minutes on each side (golden brown). Repeat until batter is gone.
  • While pancakes are cooking, put Muscle Butter in a small microwave safe dish and heat for 20 seconds. Stir in 1/2 tablespoon water with Muscle butter to get a drizzle consistency.
  • Stack cooked pancakes on a plate, decorate with Syrup, Glazed Donut Muscle Butter drizzle, and crushed pecans.

Bonus tip: You could also make these as banana pancakes subbing out the pumpkin for banana… but I am sure you’re not tired of pumpkin this early on into fall. 😉 Cheers!
