Store-bought Pancake Mix

Whole grain pancake mix can be a great option for those mornings where whipping something up from scratch is just not in the cards. You can rest assured we've got a recommendation that checks all the boxes. Quick. Protein-packed. Approved for the CACFP.

Kodiak Cakes have a "power" flapjack mix that is whole grain and full of protein. Providers love these for their kids! You can find it at Walmart by clicking this link.

    Tip: How to cook pancakes quickly

    If you've got a lot of kids or don't want to stand over the stove flipping pancakes all morning, we have seen several providers making “sheet pan pancakes”. Just spray a baking sheet and pour batter into a baking sheet. Cut into squares after baking, instead of cooking on a griddle. Such a timesaver!
