Thank you Real Mom, APRIL, for this wonderful review!
In our household we could eat breakfast foods for pretty much every meal if that was allowed. From pancakes to cinnamon rolls and bacon and eggs, there is just yumminess in every bite. And while I like quick breakfast options, I want to make sure that the foods I feed my kids are filled with whole grains and as natural as possible.
What I like the most about the Kodiak Cake mixes is that you can actually pronounce and recognize every ingredient. Whole wheat flour, whole grain flour, non-fat dry milk, dry honey, leavening, egg white and salt. That is IT!! To make them is just as easy, you just take one cup of mix and add one cup of water. I don’t know about you, but on a busy morning I want the directions to be as simple as possible.
I was having some moms over for a play date with their kids and decided to use the Kodiak Cakes mix to make some muffins. There are several recipes listed on the website so I went with the one for blueberry muffins. I had two containers of blueberries that needed to be used up and Kodiak Cakes provided the tastiest solution! The recipe called for milk, cup of oats, two eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and baking mix along with the blueberries. Prep time was 3 minutes, popped them in the oven and VOILA~ a healthy quick snack that I could serve at the play date.
The play date moms loved them and I got props for baking fresh (easy to prepare) muffins! This simple muffin recipe is one that I could make, freeze and save for a day when I was short on time. The mixes are flexible and can be suited to taste by adding fruits, nuts or other fun goodies that your family might enjoy!
The Kodiak Cakes mixes are so versatile and can be used for more than just flapjackes and waffles. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good fluffy waffle topped with berries and whip cream just about any day of the week, but it is nice to find a baking mix that can be used in so many different ways, tastes good, and has good quality ingredients.
