Let’s be honest- most mornings when I wake up, the LAST thing I want to do is make my kids breakfast. I’m tired, I am not a morning person, and they can never seem to decide what they want and we end up bickering to the last second where I just toss cereal in a bowl and scoot them out the door so they aren’t late to school. That always leaves me feeling like they aren’t getting proper nutrition- and breakfast is IMPORTANT. I didn’t believe that when I was their age, but it’s the truth. I spend way too much time worrying about them being starving all day since, apparently, “snack time” only happened in schools back in the
stone age when I was in school.
That’s why FlapJacked is my new morning BFF. And NO ONE is my morning BFF.
If you have never heard of FlapJacked, prepare yourself, because you’re going to thank me SO HARD. I’M NOT KIDDING! ARE YOU SITTING DOWN?
FlapJacked are protein-packed & fiber rich pancake & baking mixes that are naturally sweetened with fruits & veggies, fortified with whey protein isolate and pea protein. Each serving is about 200 calories and 20g of protein! Now, I know that was a lot of information I threw at you all at once, but here’s what I can tell you- they’re super good for you, made with no artificial sweeteners, GMO free, they keep you full for a LONG time and really help fuel you through your day- which is not just perfect for you, but for your kids.
BEST PART? THE KIDS CAN MAKE THE MIGHTY MUFFINS THEMSELVES!
That’s right, it’s not just pancake & baking mixes (in assorted delicious flavors) but MUFFINS! Muffins don’t inherently sound healthy, but these definitely are, even though they might not taste like it (because they’re so dang good!)
I was first introduced to FlapJacked at the MomsMeet WOW summit where I got to try a few samples and I was instantly in love. So much so that I grabbed my kids and said “YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS” and they decided to be super embarrassing by stealing extra samples. I absolutely jumped at the chance to work with such a great family company.
They sent us some mighty muffins and pancake mixes to really try for ourselves and put the kids to the test (at 7 and 9, you never really know how much they’re capable of until you give them a chance, and that can be scary).
Mighty Muffins (which are GMO free) are just as simple as a bowl of cereal and so much better.
You just pick your flavor (my personal fav is the maple pumpkin- OMG),
peel back the film, add water, stir,
and then just pop it in the microwave for 35-55 seconds (depending on your micro’s wattage)
Last, but most certainly not least- ENJOY!
BAM- a healthy, protein-packed, fiber filled, natural breakfast so easy, even my messy kids can make them! Oh, by the way, they also contain GanedenBC30 probiotics to support those immune systems- so you’re even more confident sending them off to germ-filled schools.
And let’s not forget the pancake & baking mixes, because they are SO YUMMY, and simple to make, too! Just add water!
We tried out the carrot spice mix
One word: Awesome.
You don’t just have to make pancakes with them, though. You can substitute them in for banana bread, or donuts, or even pizza crust. The possibilities are endless, and they’re all good for you!
Choose from Pancake & Baking mixes in Banana Hazelnut, Carrot Spice, Buttermilk, & Cinnamon Apple. Mighty Muffins come in Peanut Butter, Double Chocolate, Maple Pumpkin, Cinnamon Apple, S’mores, & Chocolate Peanut Butter.
Even better news? I’m GIVING AWAY A BUNCH FOR ONE OF YOU TO TRY!
One lucky person will win:
A 24oz bag of the new Gluten-Free Pancake & Baking Mix
