Costco Kodiak Power Cakes Full Review


Is there such a thing as a healthy pancake? The Costco Kodiak Power Cakes Mix promises a more nutritious pancake with the benefits of more protein and whole grains. At this point, you’re probably wondering if it’s possible to have healthier pancakes without sacrificing taste. How does this Kodiak pancake mix compare to your favorite pancake mix when it comes to fluffiness and flavor?

Location in Store

These are located in the aisle with the other pancake mix, jams and syrup. In my Costco, this is in an aisle near the front of the store. The item number is 391394.


The two-kilogram box costs $16.99 Canadian at Costco and contains three 680-gram bags in the box. Fun fact, the price has only gone up one dollar since 2018 when it was $15.99 at Costco.

I don’t think the price is too expensive considering they’re marketed as a healthier, whole-grain, protein-packed pancake mix and the box comes with quite a bit of mix.


The box comes with three 680-gram bags that aren’t resealable. Once I open a bag I use an elastic band to store the open bag of mix. The best-before date is about ten months from when I purchased the mix.

concentrate, Sugars (brown sugar), Milk protein concentrate, Sugars (brown sugar), Milk protein concentrate, Buttermilk, Leavening (monocalcium phosphate, baking soda), Sea salt.

Contains Milk: , Oats, Wheat.
May contain: Egg, Soy, and Tree nuts.

The ingredients list is pretty impressive! Whole grain whole wheat flour is the first ingredient followed by protein. There is sugar in the mix, brown sugar which I find just a tad disappointing because I think it could easily be omitted.

These are not gluten-free or dairy-free. They contain milk, oats, and wheat and also may contain egg, tree nuts, and soy.

Cooking Instructions

1 cup Kodiak Mix
3/4 cup Water

  • Stir until the batter is combined (do not over-beat).
  • Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto a heated and greased pan or griddle. cook on medium-high heat, or 375°F (190°C), until bubbles, form the top.
  • Flip and continue to cook until golden brown.



1/4 cup of mix contains 110 calories, one gram of fat, 18 grams of carbohydrates, two grams of fibre, two grams of sugar, eight grams of protein and 220 milligrams of sodium. If you replace the water with milk the protein per 1/4 cup goes up to 11 grams and if you add an egg it increases to 14 grams!


Must buy.

Kodiak does a great job of offering a higher protein pancake using whole grains. Considering all factors including the cost, I myself will not be repurchasing these.
