GoNutrition Protein Pancake Mix Review12/04/2017
Do you have a weakness?
Protein and pancakes. So, once these two are combined shit will hit the fan.
Today I’ve picked up the GoNutrition Protein Pancake Mix and I gotta say, I’m pretty excited.
Not because trying to maintain a disciplined lifestyle is a vulnerability to the temptations of sweets and cakes, but so I can feel like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and absolutely destroy a whole stack of pancakes and not give a toss.
Other supplement companies also have protein pancakes as well, or, you could just whack in a scoop of whey into your normal pancake mix, but it’s all about tried-and-trusted convenience.
Let’s see how it holds up…
GoNutrition Protein Pancake Mix
GoNutrition’s Protein Pancake Mix comes in a standard pouch bag, just like a whey protein powder.
Depending on what size you go for, you can expect to get 10 servings out of a 500g bag, or 20 servings out of a 1kg bag. Decent.
Price-wise, the flavoured versions are slightly more costly, adding an additional quid to your order with the unflavoured version being the cheapest at £10.49 for 500g and £17.49 for 1kg.
In this review, I’ll be taking a look at the ‘Maple Syrup’ flavour where other varieties include ‘Blueberry Cheesecake’ and ‘Chocolate Banana’. The mix is also meant to be “dummy-proof” where you simply only need to add 100ml of water/milk to the mix and work up a treat in a frying pan.
So far so good!
As we’ve come to expect from GoNutrition, their Protein Pancake Mix boasts high-quality ingredients (unlike their Protein Wafers) with excellent, top draw macros.
Per 50g serving (roughly 2 normal scoops), the nutritional numbers are as follows:
Carbohydrates (of which sugars)
Fat (of which saturates)
This incredibly easy-to-prepare high protein treat combines 75% of whey, milk and egg protein with ultra fine oats, MCTs (Medium-Chain Triglycerides) and flax seeds to make a deliciously healthy and nutritious snack.
The best part?
It comes with no added sugar and the Maple Syrup flavour consists of natural flavouring instead of the artificial kind which gets you more jittery than a crackhead trying to snort diet coke after going cold-turkey.
For what it’s worth, for a snack which can be prepared in a matter of minutes, these nutritionals are simply outstanding packing in an impressive 30g of protein per serving.
You can’t say fairer than that!
Taste and Texture
If you’re anything like me and have a monstrous affinity for sugary snacks, you’ll be pleased to know that the Maple Syrup tastes exactly as it should.
This means you don’t need to soak your pancakes in excess sugar to enjoy them – keeping both your waistline and teeth where they should be.
With that said:
The GoNutrition Pancakes taste absolutely delicious and are easily one of the best protein foods I have tried.
I decided to top mine off with chopped bananas and a light drizzle of honey for good measure.
If you’re feeling adventurous (or like a fat fuck), you can add all sorts of toppings such as bacon, blueberries, Greek yoghurt, peanut butter etc.
So long as you shake the mix enough to remove any excess lumps, texture is as you’d expect too – fluffy and tasty.
Top marks all round.
Use and Effectiveness
I’ve always been pretty shit at making pancakes, so I can safely say that the GoNutrition Protein Pancake Mix is totally idiot-proof and cooks fantastically well with just a modest amount of oil in a non-stick frying pan.
If that wasn’t enough,
They also cook in as little as 90 seconds which is definitely a plus when you’re strapped for time and can’t be arsed to spend a lot of time in the kitchen (like me on most days).
At just under 200 calories and 30g of protein, these pancakes are a one-stop breakfast fix.
They have helped me keep my gains on track and serve as an excellent hunger-killer in the morning, lasting up until lunch time – where – there is nothing worse than hearing your stomach growling like a dying walrus.
Value for Money
With each serving on the Maple Syrup flavour working out to be £1.15 on the 500g pouch and 92p on the 1kg pouch, the GoNutrition Protein Pancake Mix provides decent value on your cash.
The unflavoured version works out to be cheaper per serving, so I would opt for this option and spruce it up with your own ingredients and toppings to keep cost to a minimum.
Either way, for the convenience you get from this product, the cons are minimal
The GoNutrition Pancake Mix is a high-quality product with a great taste and simple cooking requirements, making it a solid addition to any lifter’s inventory of breakfast options.
With a strong macro profile and premium ingredients, these pancakes are big, dense bastards and you would be hard pressed not to consider them above the crappy crepe-style pancakes you get in the supermarket.
