Killer Whey! with Zucchini Bread Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes

I love zucchini bread. Killer Whey! Protein Ice Cream with Zucchini Bread Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes might become a weekend staple for the rest of the summer.

As a child, one of the best parts of summer was when my mom would make zucchini bread. The entire house smelling like cinnamon, sugar, and spice. And then eating the zucchini bread fresh out of the oven, slathered in butter.


Unfortunately, the zucchini bread I grew up eating is loaded with sugar and carbs, just like all quick breads and muffins. It’s been years since I’ve had zucchini bread or made it myself. I was going to try making a paleo zucchini bread with almond flour but instead had a craving for pancakes and decided to add shredded zucchini to Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes to make zucchini bread pancakes. Best decision ever!

If you’re in Idaho, getting fresh zucchini shouldn’t be a problem right now. Everybody and anybody has a plethora of zucchini to share. Depending on how many pancakes you want to make, you’ll probably only need one small or medium sized zucchini.



For this recipe, I used a sample size box of Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes, which makes two servings. I added a half cup of shredded zucchini to the pancake mix, which I got from one small zucchini. Make sure to get as much of the moisture out of the zucchini as possible. I just placed the shredded zucchini in a couple of paper towels and squeezed the water out over the sink. I also added in cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and chopped walnuts to the pancakes. And of course I topped them with Killer Whey! Protein Ice Cream, a little drizzle of maple syrup, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
