Are you looking for an easy, high-protein breakfast recipe that tastes delicious and can be ready in less than 20 minutes? Now introducing my new favorite weekend breakfast to share: a chocolate chip & peanut butter easy pancake skillet!
easy pancake skillet
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: my love for protein pancakes is real. I’ve been getting creative in finding as many ways as possible to use Kodiak Cakes mix. While you can’t go wrong with making their classic pancakes, it’s fun to mix things up and find more tasty ways to use their mixes. This week I swapped out my protein power oats for one giant pancake; hence, the protein pancake skillet.
This protein pancake skillet is a delicious breakfast packed with protein. I’ve made this for Alan & I to share, but I’ve also just made a big one and kept it in the fridge for myself to eat throughout the week. One of the best things about this recipe is that the prep & cook time total is less than 20 minutes total. So grab your cast-iron skillet and let’s get cooking!
This post includes an ingredient list, cooking directions, and process pictures. I hope you enjoy this protein pancake skillet as much as I do!
What ingredients do i need?
The recipe only requires 3 ingredients! I love recipes that are EASY and use what I already have in the pantry and this recipe definitely meets those requirements.
- Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes Mix
- Mini Chocolate Chips
- Peanut Butter
Kodiak Cakes is the only pancake mix I ever use. I love the flavor, the nutritional components, and how easy it is to make. I use the classic Buttermilk flavor for this recipe, but you could use whatever mix you like the best!
I use mini chocolate chips because I want there to be chocolate chips in every single bite. However, you could use whatever chocolate chips you have in your pantry or like the best!
I recommend using natural peanut butter for this recipe. Natural peanut butter will be more drippy and creamy so it’s easy to drizzle all over the pancake.
what equipment do i need?
The main piece of equipment you need is a cast-iron skillet. A cast-iron skillet is a heavy-duty, durable, versatile dish that makes is easy to cook with and clean. This recipe involves heating up the cast-iron skillet, adding the mixture, and cooking it all in the oven. The cast-iron skillet in the oven will do all the work for you for cooking a crispy, hot and delicious pancake.
How do i make this recipe?
Gather ingredients. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the cast iron skillet in the oven while it is preheating.
Mix 1 cup of Kodiak Cake mix with 1 cup of water. Stir in 2 tbsp of mini chocolate chips.
Once oven is preheated, take out the cast iron skillet. Melt 2 tbsp of butter into the skillet. Spread it around so it covers all of the surfaces.
Pour mix into the skillet. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes, then sprinkle with remaining mini chocolate chips. Continue baking for another 7 minutes or until the top is light brown and the pancake is baked all the way through.
