Thanks to Krusteaz for partnering with us to make these High Protein Mini Sausage Pancake Bites for National Pancake Day March 5th. These scrumptious little pancake bites can feed a crowd of hungry kids for breakfast in no time while adding extra protein to their breakfast. Pair these up with Brunch Omelet Bar for self serve entertaining.
Many of us are trying to add more protein to our diet, while still enjoying the flavors of foods we love. Krusteaz’s new Buttermilk Protein Pancake & Flapjack Mix may be the answer. Packed with 15 grams of protein per serving, its new better-for-you nutrition profile is made for the health-conscious consumer.
Plus with the addition of sausage crumbles and fruit we are packing even more protein and nutrition to each breakfast bite.
How to Make High Protein Mini Sausage Pancake Bites
Simply make the pancake batter per the box Krusteaz directions, adding egg and/ or milk for even more protein per bite.
Fill 16 greased mini muffin wells with batter, leaving room to add the cooked sausage and fruit.
We used sausage crumbles, but you can use any type of sausage you prefer. Just follow any cooking directions per the packaging.
We added a frozen raspberry to each “muffin” since we had them on hand, but you could use fresh or frozen blueberries too.
In about 12 minutes you will be feeding a crowd of hungry breakfast goers. They won’t even know you are trying to fill them up with protein and extra nutrition since the Krusteaz Protein Pancake Mix has the same great flavor of their original pancakes.
Definitely allow them to sit a few minutes to easier removal from the pan.
Serve them up with extra maple syrup as well. If you want to avoid the mess, just add more maple syrup to the batter for extra sweetness.
I have never made these mini pancake muffins before and not sure where they have been my whole life. Making pancakes for even 3 kids can be time consuming. They eat them and are asking for more before you can make enough for the next kid.
What a fun brunch idea tool. You can serve up these little High Protein Mini Sausage Pancake Bites to serve up a crowd. Another high protein breakfast using this mix are these Chocolate Banana Pancakes
