Quarantine Eats: Kodiak Cakes Berry Muffins

I recently discovered Kodiak Cakes.
And I must say, I’m a big fan.

Matthew & I have been making Kodiak Cakes pancakes nearly every weekend of quarantine – and we don’t feel so bad because they’re protein-filled and whole wheat (at least that’s what we tell ourselves).

But this post isn’t about the pancakes (although I know they look delicious, right?).
This post is actually about one of the other recipes on the Kodiak Cakes Flapjack & Waffle Mix box: the berry muffins.

Muffins are definitely one of my most guilty pleasures.
I usually opt for the extra chocolatey chip muffins or the blueberry ones with a bunch of brown sugar on top. It’s like eating a cupcake for breakfast.

But because I’m on this health kick, I decided to try enjoying my guilty pleasure another way: a healthier way with Kodiak Cakes.

So, here’s what you need for a dozen of these tasty fellas:

  • 1 cup Kodiak Cakes Flapjack & Waffle mix
  • 1/2 cup Almond Milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar (can also use honey or maple syrup)
  • 1 ripe, mashed banana
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup berries (I used fresh blueberries & strawberries)
  • A handful of dark chocolate chips (optional)

After you’ve gathered the above ingredients, follow these simple steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (375 for high altitude)
  2. Line muffin tin with muffin cups or spray cooking spray in pan
  3. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until smooth
  4. Fill muffin cups evenly (about 3/4 full each)
  5. Bake muffins for about 16 – 18 minutes until the tops start turning golden
  6. Remove, cool slightly, and enjoy w/ maple syrup (optional, but recommended)

I must say, these muffins were not as good as the pancakes I’ve made with Kodiak Cakes. However, they were still very delicious (Matthew agrees).

* OH and leftovers with a quick microwave heat and topped with maple syrup are perfect any time of day (as shown below) *

Next time, I may try making them with just bananas and dark chocolate chips – kinda like choco chip banana bread in muffin form!
