    Healthy Cheat Foods Pancake Mix review


    Ok, not exactly a supplement, but not sure where else this fit I had the luck of winning a package of the pancake mix, and today was my first day making some pancakes.

    The directions read 1/2 cup of mix + 2/3 cup of water. i mixed it a little thin. the mix smelled ok, maybe a light whiff of that whey smell. I didn't try tasting the raw powder. It was sort of speckled, some darker bits in it, overall looked like most pancake mixes.

    I'll have to play a little with them and temperature. they seemed to cook a little darker faster than buckwheat pancake mix does. The timing between ready and starting to carmelize a little was close. Not that they burned, just went from not ready to dark fairly quickly(so purely visual). I may also go a little thinner next time as well. I got 4 pancakes out of the 1/2 cup of mix.

    Tastewise, I had one dry, and 3 with syrup. Dry it was a little bit crunchier + crisper than most pancakes, but just different, not bad. I kind of liked it actually, thinking it might be nice to use quite a bit thinner to make a pancake wrap for an egg? (more on why in a bit). Also the taste was interesting, it had a bit of an eggish taste, not any hint of the whey. I used Cary's sugar free syrup (sorbitol based) for the other 3. I wish someone made an aspartame or saccarin sweetened 0 cal syrup, i'll have to look around. Other than a little bit of extra crunchiness / grit (sort of like stone ground wheat bread) here and there, I couldn't tell the difference between these and regular pancakes. The grittiness was also less than with buckwheat pancakes for comparison.

    the reason I mentioned trying it thinner to make a pancake wrap for an egg is 2 fold. for one damn but I miss mcgriddles. The other is that once I add the syrup, even tho it is sugar alchohol it still throws the macros that direction. but taking 2 regular pancakes worth of mix into one large pancake, rolling it around an egg and some turkey bacon, then adding syrup should be able to hit 40/40/20.


    A very nice product, well worth having in the pantry. When this bag runs out, i'll be buying more
