PEScience Buttermilk Mix

Before I dive into this review, I’ll be completely honest and let you know that this is my product. I formulated it 100% on my own and even designed the packaging for it, so this is my baby.

I’ve partnered with PEScience to bring it to life, but it is my own formula that I created in my kitchen.

You can consider me biased, but there is a reason I made this mix; I have been so disappointed by the other protein mixes out there, and I knew I could do it better.

I truly believe that this is the best protein waffle & pancake mix out there, and I’m going to prove it to you.

The Story Behind This Protein Buttermilk Mix

Through most of 2018, I was eating Kodiak Cakes almost every single day in the form of waffles. It got to the point where I simply wanted to save some money, so I decided to make my own mix at home.

By the summer of 2019, I had come up with my own mix that I absolutely loved. When you added milk, it made some of the best protein waffles imaginable.

Fast forward to 2022. I use PEScience protein powder in all of my recipes over on my main blog, and I have built a great relationship with the company.

I decided to take a shot in the dark to see if they would be willing to work together on a waffle & pancake mix. To my surprise, they were on board immediately, so I got to work formulating this mix to become “just add water” to make the best waffles OR pancakes possible.

After many iterations, I finally landed on the perfect formulation that you simply have to add water to.

This mix that’s available to buy is 100% my own recipe, and I even designed the packaging for it! It has been a dream come true to bring a product to life, and I am SO proud of this.

There are two reasons why this buttermilk mix is superior to other protein mixes out there:

  1. It is truly a “just add water” product. Most mixes out there claim to be “just add water,” which ends up working for pancakes, but then requires eggs and/or oil to make waffles. For this mix, you only need water to make incredible pancakes or waffles.
  2. I formulated this mix to be one of the best-tasting mixes out there, protein or not. I didn’t want this to be good for a protein mix, I wanted this to be delicious for ANY pancake or waffle mix. I’m confident I accomplished that!

PEScience Protein Pancakes Review

PEScience protein pancakes

I have always been someone who has chosen waffles over pancakes, but this PEScience mix has converted me into a pancake lover.

By just adding water, you end up with extremely fluffy pancakes that rival any pancakes out there, not just protein pancakes.

I absolutely love buttermilk pancakes, but you can easily transform these into a bunch of different flavors.

It’s very hard to beat chocolate chip pancakes. Since the mix already has a hint of vanilla, adding chocolate chips and a touch of sea salt to this mix makes these taste just like a batch of fresh-baked cookies.

If you’re feeling fancy, you can take it one step further…

That’s right, you can transform these into chocolate pancakes as well!

This is just the tip of the iceberg, and the only limit is your imagination. But no matter which route you go, the pancakes are incredibly soft & fluffy, and you’d never know there were 15 grams of protein in each serving.

PEScience Protein Waffles Review

When it comes to waffles, I find most of the protein mixes out there to seriously miss the mark.

To be perfectly honest, you can throw any ingredients into a waffle maker and have it look like an actual waffle, which is why all the other mixes out there are so deceiving.

You can combine a scoop of protein powder with an egg and a little milk or water and it will come out looking like waffles… but it will taste like protein powder.

These PEScience protein waffles taste like real-deal buttermilk waffles, and they actually turn out crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Just like the pancakes, the waffles are extremely versatile. You can use a mini waffle maker or a Belgian waffle maker to make the perfect waffles, and you can serve them up a ton of different ways.

Personally, I prefer Belgian waffles, but I cannot argue with the convenience of meal prepping mini waffles and then throwing them into the toaster for a quick and easy breakfast.

My favorite part about waffles is how well they work as a savory dish. Sure, you could make savory pancakes, but it doesn’t work nearly as well (aside from breakfast sandwiches).

Personally, I love making pizza waffles, and something about the slight sweetness of the mix combined with the cheese just makes for the perfect combination.

If you’re bored with plain waffles, switching it up and going savory will change everything for you.

Using This As a Baking Mix

When you purchase this mix, you’ll get a free recipe book that contains all of the pancakes and waffles you saw above, but also a ton of extra recipes!

I spent countless hours putting this ebook together for everyone, and I’m really proud of the recipes inside. I wanted to prove to everyone that the fun doesn’t need to end with pancakes or waffles.

If I had to choose my favorite miscellaneous recipes, I definitely have to start with the cider donuts.

Of course, you could go with regular donuts or even chocolate donuts, but cider donuts are my personal favorite.

If you don’t want to bake sweets, there are also a bunch of savory options to choose from.

How do bacon cheddar mini scones sound?

Trust me, these are incredible, and still so easy to make. Between the prep and the baking, you can have mini scones ready to go in about 20 minutes.

All of these recipes and more are all completely free in the ebook you get when you buy the mix!

Final Thoughts: PEScience Protein Waffle & Pancake Mix

This truly is the best tasting protein mix out there, and I don’t think it’s particularly close. Others are decent, but this blows them away in both taste and texture for pancakes or waffles.

Sure, I’m biased. This is my own product that I formulated, but I believe in it with all my heart. I spent years bringing this to life, and if you know me at all (or have spent any time on this blog) you know that I’ve tried pretty much every single high-protein product out there.

So, you know that my standards are very high at this point. And I promise you, this does not disappoint.

This is my first ever product, and I want you all to love it as much as I do.
