Product Review: FlapJacked Pancake Mix
One of my food blogger colleagues and dear friend brought to
my attention a new product to review called, FlapJacked Pancake Mix. What could
be easier for a Dad Cooking Blogger like me to review pancakes since Saturday
morning and pancakes go hand in hand around my house.
The "back story" behind FlapJacked comes from the founders,
Jennifer and Dave Bacon. Like most families on the weekend, the Bacon’s would
have their weekend mornings filled with not-so healthy options like pancakes, syrup,
bacon and an assortment of other breakfast foods that would often lead to the
after meal "sugar crash". What also made healthy family diet choices
challenging was their 10-year old son named Jace. It was a daily project to get
Jace, who has Autism, to eat anything other than processed foods.
Can you relate?
Jennifer and David Bacon founded the company based on the
premise that healthy meals should not only fuel our bodies but also taste great
but fuel us with energy to get through our day. The pancake mix is easy to
prepare making it simple for the modern families busy with active
FlapJacked is perfectly balanced to fuel your body and help
control hunger. This delicious, protein-packed and fiber-rich pancake mix is
made with only the highest quality ingredients such as whole grain oats, quinoa
and coconut flour that provides our body with the essentials to stay healthy
and feel great. The mix is fortified with Whey Protein Isolate and
naturally sweetened with real fruit (no sugar added!). Loaded with
antioxidants, potassium, fiber, calcium, magnesium and vitamins,
FlapJacked Protein Pancakes are a complete meal that supports muscle
growth and balances blood sugar.
NO GMO ingredients, NO Preservatives, NO
Artificial color, NO Artificial flavoring or NO Artificial ANYTHING!
Give it a try!
I put my teens to the test and made FlapJacked pancakes this
past weekend and DID NOT tell my teens that it was anything different than what
they normally get on a Saturday. My results were positive. Both daughters
jumped right in and finished their plates. After we cleaned up the kitchen, I
gave an impromptu interview / survey and it went something like this:
Did the pancakes taste any different today?
Actually, they were a little more
"fluffy" than usual.
Fluffy" a good thing?
Dad, Fluffy pancakes taste better than FLAT pancakes
"So, If I told you that you ate healthy pancakes today, would you eat them
long as you tell me after I eat them Daddy…"
Breakfast around my house on Saturdays is my time to be with
my family. I want to make smart cooking choices for my family and if I can
incorporate FlapJacked pancakes knowing that my pancakes are "fluffy" and
packed with protein and no artificial ingredients; I know I am doing something
good for my family.
The batter was easy to prepare and the best compliment I can
pay a company is to say that my two daughters, (who are picky eaters) could not
tell the difference; then you know you have a good product.
