I didn’t know I was looking for a better-for-you pancake and waffle mix, however, now that I’ve discovered Flourish Pancakes, I simply can’t go back!
Flourish Pancakes Protein Pancake & Waffle Mix, a proudly Canadian brand (based right here in Toronto!), packs 23g of protein, 7g of fibre and contains ZERO added sugar per serving. Based on the ingredients alone (which are all-natural, and include organic and non-GMO foods), I feel amazing about serving Flourish Pancakes to my family. In fact, we were recently treated to the LIMITED EDITION Birthday Cake flavour (the company just turned two!) and the mix is even made with all-natural sprinkles, such as green sprinkles made with spirulina, which means they contain no artificial colours either!
We decided to use the mix to make waffles, and since I just needed to add water, prep work was a breeze. Skipping the syrup, we instead dipped our waffles in natural colour candy melts for a flash of colour and birthday fun. Aren’t they just too cute for words?
Of course, one of the questions you may have is… “How do they taste?”
The waffles were dense (they *are* packed with protein) but they had a moist, slightly sweet flavour that appealed to both adults and kids alike. In fact, my son declared the Birthday Cake-flavoured waffles to be the best he’s ever had! I would love to enjoy these waffle again with pure maple syrup for breakfast, or vanilla bean ice cream for dessert. I’d also consider using the mix to make donuts, muffins or even crepes – all ideas I’ve found by following Flourish Pancakes on Instagram.
Flourish Pancakes comes in a variety of delicious flavours, including:
– Their current limited time offer, Birthday Cake (available online only)

It’s not often that I find a better-for-you option that my kids love, so you can bet that Flourish Pancakes will find a regular spot in my pantry. I’ve promised my sons that we’ll try the Chocolate flavour next… mmm, chocolate!
Happy Birthday, Flourish Pancakes! Two looks good on you :)
