Super quickie post for a super quickie recipe!  An “Under 5” Ingredient recipe to be exact!!!

Last week I was contacted by Detour, one of my favorite companies for protein & snack bars!  I was asked if I was interested in creating a recipe for a contest/promo they were having with ABS Pancakes and Sweet Spreads.  Pancakes, nut butter, and Smart bars?  Count me in.  Count me IN!

Since I didn’t have a ton of time on hand and my pantry was somewhat bare, I had to keep things sweet, simple, and FAST!  First inclination for a recipe is of course pancakes (duh), but I knew I could dig a bit deeper than that!  Anytime I’m craving pancakes or waffles, but want to step out of the box I always grab my (well, actually my daughter’s) mini donut/cake pop maker!  I’m a HUGE fan of this little machine because #1 my daughter can use it herself to bake, #2 donut holes (nuff’ said), and #3 I can make STUFFED donuts holes in less than 10 minutes!  I discovered a fascination for stuffed donuts that when I made THESE… mmmm.

Cake Pop/Donut Hole Maker

It was a great time to break out this fun little gadget again!  Doesn’t get any easier than this… 1 scoop of ‘Cinnamon Roll’ ABS Pancakes, 1/3 cup of Vanilla MuscleEgg egg whites, 1/3 cup of cashew milk.  Mix until smooth.  Pour a little batter into the preheated donut hole maker, add a piece of the Apple Cinnamon Smart bar, a dollop of Caramel French Toast Sweet Spreads, more batter to cover, close lid, cook for 2-3 minutes.  BAM!  Don’t have one of these amazing little contraptions?  Don’t fret.  Use a mini muffin pan!!!  They turned out perfect.  And I have to admit… biting into anything that’s stuffed puts a little smile on my face.  It’s like getting a little surprise package in every bite!!!




Ready to whip these up, but don’t have the ingredients?  Want to win them for yourself?  Head on over to Instagram, follow DETOUR, ABS Pancakes, and Sweet Spreads, then repost this picture and tag them!!!  Great companies and quality products!

    I LOVE your blog! You are so awesome, and I appreciate all your posts! Especially your one’s about reverse dieting, as I’m currently reversing myself, and was pretty clueless at first, trying to figure it out on my own without a coach. 🙂

    I’ve never had the Abs mix, and wondered how it compared to the Kodiaks Powercakes mix. Do you think they would work as well in this recipe with Kodiak cakes? Or do they have totally different textures when baked? I’ll probably give it a shot anyway, as I love experimenting, but wondered if you had any advice. 🙂

      Hi Emily, Kodiak and ABS are very very different. Kodiak is more comparable to something like Bisquick! Its like a baking mix with the flour and leavening agents. ABS is a low carb option with a very different texture. That being said, Kodiak would work GREAT in this recipe. I would just use something like 1/2-3/4 cup of Kodiak and then enough milk to make it like a batter! Hope that helps!
