Just add water to this Costco pancake mix to make fluffy, delicious pancakes!
Today I’m reviewing the Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix from Costco. I’m always very skeptical about pancake mixes that only require adding water. I can’t imagine how a pancake mix can taste good without added eggs and milk.
Other Krustez products from Costco I’ve tried are the Costco Krusteaz Meyer Lemon Bar Mix, Costco Krusteaz Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix and the Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread Mix. My favorite pancake mix from Costco is the Kodiak Cakes.
I love how these pancakes turned out. The texture is thick and fluffy soft on the inside, golden brown with the slightest crispness on the outside. They taste delicious and are rich in buttermilk flavor, but not overly sweet or heavy.
I’m not missing the eggs or milk at all! The Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix pancakes taste similar to diner-style pancakes.
This huge 4.53 kilogram bag of Costco pancake mix costs $9.79 Canadian. That’s a ton of pancakes or waffles for not a lot of money!
These pancakes are ridiculously easy to whip up. All I have to do is add water to the pancake mix and then of course cook the pancakes! This is a huge bag and the best before date is almost a year from the date when I purchased the mix.
I keep the bag in my basement where it’s dry and cool because we only eat pancakes every so often. I think this mix is perfect for people that have to cook up a bunch of pancakes for an event or large party. At one point I think Krusteaz even had a special offer where they would give people hosting large pancake breakfasts a partial rebate.
Half a cup of mix contains 210 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 660 milligrams of sodium, 45 grams of carbohydrates, 11 grams of sugar, four grams of protein and one gram of fibre. The amount of sugar and salt is surprising, because you don’t really taste the pancakes being very salty or sweet. If you’re on a low-carb diet, you may want to consider eating less of these pancakes.
I don’t love the ingredients list. It seems like there’s lots of chemical-sounding ingredients and I wish they didn’t include soybean oil. The pancake mix contains wheat, milk, eggs and barley, but those are pretty standard ingredients in pancakes.
We’re on our second bag of this mix and my husband really loves these pancakes every time I make them! Personally I like the Kodiak Cakes, but we’ll keep buying the Krusteaz pancake mix for him.
Have you tried this pancake mix from Costco? What did you think?
