I LOVE all things Kodiak Cakes. I love their pancake mix, I love their oatmeal cups, I love their Muffins in a cup. But after having protein pancakes for WAY too many days in a row, I decided to create my own muffins using the pancake mix, and that’s how this recipe was born! I very loosely followed a Kodiak Cakes recipe, and made a bunch of tweaks to make it my own that I can share with all of you! Not only are these muffins super easy to make, but they are also delicious and have a lot less calories and sugar than store-bought muffins! If you are looking for a new component for breakfast or a snack to have throughout the day that’s macro friendly, give these a try.
I have included several different substitutions that you can make based on your dietary needs/goals. Give these a try and let me know what you think! (BONUS: If you use the code WELLNESSFORTHEWIN15 when you purchase products at www.KodiakCakes.com, you get 15% off your order!)
2 cups Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk protein pancake mix (dry)
1 cup whole milk
½ cup dry old fashioned oats
3 Tbsp chocolate chips
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl together until blended but not smooth. Spoon mixture into lined cupcake baking tray, until each well is about ½-¾ of the way full.
Bake at 350 for 14-16 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy! (Makes: one dozen small muffins)
