I mentioned in a previous post that my brother had picked up a bag of Go Nutrition’s Protein Pancake Mix. I know I’ve posted about other products from GN but I promise I’m on no commission! We made a huge order of products to try as they have such a wide range of protein and fitness related foods so there might be more in future too.
The protein pancake mix comes in a bag like this:
It’s the typical style of GN as all of their powdered products come in bags with zip lock tops to them. This makes it a lot easier to store for longer periods and know that it will still be as fresh as it was when you first opened it.
The bag contains 1kg of product and is unflavoured. I’ve never tried an unflavoured protein product before so I knew this was going to be interesting! As each serving is 50g and the bag is 1kg, this will give you 20 servings. That’s not bad for the £8.99 price tag. It works out at 45p per serving and you can add any kind of topping you like!
Here’s the info on the back of the pack; you can see the ingredients are pretty simple.
Protein Pancake Mix is a fantastic healthy snack suitable to support all training goals. For those that train and compete on a regular basis a diet high in protein is essential for muscle growth, repair and recovery and our Protein Pancake Mix can really help you increase your daily protein intake. Furthermore, our Protein Pancake Mix provides 10g of low GI carbohydrates from oats to slowly release energy, making them ideal any time of day. Each serving of Protein Pancake Mix also provides 2.5g of medium chain triglyceride (MCT) health fats and 1g of flax seed which is high in Omega-3 Linolenic Acid.
They recommend you use their Organic Coconut Oil to cook them in to ensure the maximum benefits from the meal.
They are super easy to make, all you need is two scoops of powder with 100ml of milk or water. Shake them together, they suggest you use a protein shaker but I’ve also used a jug and fork and achieved a pretty consistent batter.
This will create two pancakes, so all you need to do is add half the batter to a frying pan and bake it for 60-90 seconds each side and hey presto you’re done!
I have made these a number of times and each one has been consistently good. I’ve added bananas and maple syrup, greek yogurt and fruit, and obviously slapped some peanut butter and nutella on them for a good old treat!
You can see my pictures of some of them below:
These were bought by my brother on a whim but I can honestly say that when they’ve run out I’ll be buying them again, they’re so easy for a nutritious, filling and fun breakfast on weekends.
You can buy this protein pancake mix in a maple syrup flavour as well as unflavoured, though I think I’d prefer to add my own separately and change it every time!
What do you think of the protein pancake mix? Would you try it?
