Brief History

Although Baker Mills was started in 1994, our Whole Grain Flapjack Mix recipe has been a tradition that goes back generations. On a summer day in 1982, our Mom Penny decided to mix up the dry ingredients for her Grandpa’s “hot cakes” recipe to sell to friends and neighbors. She packed the mixes in brown paper lunch sacks. On the outside of each sack were the mixing and cooking instructions that she had carefully handwritten.

Once the sacks were filled, Mom loaded up her eight-year-old son Joel’s little red wagon and sent him off into the neighborhood. In no time, Joel returned home with an empty wagon having sold each mix. Neighbors often requested more of the flapjack mix, but Mom decided her venture was a little premature and focused instead on raising her five children.

Twelve years later in the summer of 1994 Penny urged her son Jon, Joel’s older brother, to help her start a company. Jon modified the original mix making it an “add water only”, preparing Kodiak Cakes Whole Grain Flapjack & Waffle Mix for market. Today, younger brother Joel is the owner of Baker Mills and runs it with the same principles upon which it was founded—using only the finest and most wholesome ingredients available.

Since our humble beginnings in Mom’s kitchen, we have expanded the product line to include a variety of breakfast and dessert mixes, all natural berry syrups, and instant microwave muffins and are selling the Kodiak Cakes brand nationally.

ARE YOUR KIDS GETTING ENOUGH PROTEIN?
– How to ensure your kids are getting enough protein-
SALT LAKE CITY- Protein is powerful stuff. It builds bones, muscles, tissues, keeps your little one’s engine running through the day, and strengthens their body’s defenses against infection. So how much is enough for your kid? According to the Nemours Foundation you can figure out how much protein your kid needs if you know how much they weigh. Each day, kids need to eat about 0.5 grams of protein for every pound they weigh. That’s a gram for every 2 pounds. To figure out your kid’s protein needs, multiply their weight in pounds by .5 or you can divide your weight by 2. Sometimes it can be difficult to get anywhere near this number, especially if you have a picky eater.

Dear Kodiak Pancake Mix People: If anyone asks what is the best gift we received to commemorate our 60th Wedding Anniversary, I would show the 4 boxes of Kodiak Pancake Mix….the mix proved to be the best pancakes we have eaten.

Your pancake mix is the reason that my boyfriend fell in love with me and now we live happily ever after in Brooklyn, never too far away from a box of Kodiak Cakes. —Brooklyn, New York

We just tried your Big Bear Brownies and they are the richest, moistest, most decadent brownies we have ever tasted from a mix. It won’t be worth making them from scratch anymore! Thanks for making a delicious, good for you, treat! —Westminster, MD
