Simply swapping all-purpose flour with Kodiak Cakes Flapjack and Waffle Mix increases fiber by 3 grams and protein by 8 grams. Or, as you see in the recipe below, Kodiak Cakes Bear Bites make a great substation for traditional graham crackers in many recipes to add 100% whole grains and more protein to your dish. What a great way to make homemade meals even better this holiday season!
