I was sent a package of Krusteaz Protein Pancake Mixes, and of course, I had to try it as a deliciously fluffy buttermilk pancake that it was made for but I also had to try making something else with it too!  The protein pancake mix only calls for the addition of water, how incredibly easy is that?!  They do not contain hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.  With the new season changes coming around, things can get chaotic in busy family homes, so it's great to have easy to prepare products like Krusteaz Protein Pancake Mixes.

I made donuts with the pancake mix, it makes for such a delicious and easy treat.  Donuts can come in many flavors and textures, these fluffy and soft donuts are as easy to make as the pancakes.  I added a 1/4 cup of butter, a 1/4 cup of applesauce, 1 1/2 cup of water, and 2 cups of Krusteaz mix.  Blend or thoroughly mix with hand.  Place in electric donut maker machine, wait until the light pops up, and you're done!  These can be enjoyed with maple syrup, jam, sun-butter, and just about anything!  I feel like it has enough flavor without any additives but you can also frost it or toss it in sugar for a special treat.  The best part about the donuts is that you can take it to-go, children can enjoy it as a snack and it being protein packed it'll keep them full longer so it's much better than any other purchased donut.

Great thing is that these Krusteaz protein pancake mixes have 13g of added protein, making it a great addition to a morning meal.  My recipe is as easy as it is to prepare the pancakes unless food allergies restrict you - there's no excuse for making your family fresh pancakes with these mixes that only need water!  The directions on the back cannot be simpler, and amazing for kids to follow too.
