I recently tried Kodiak Cakes Protein Pancake mix on my quest for a weekend pancake breakfast that would also pack a protein punch and I loved them! My head started spinning over what other tasty treats I may be able to create from this so I began to play around with the fall favorite pumpkin, my favorite chocolate and some more protein from my go-to Chobani Greek yogurt. The result was a fudgy muffin to pair with my morning coffee. Give these a whirl and let me know what you think!
-1 cup Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt
-1 cup Pumpkin Puree
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-3/4 cup coconut sugar
-1/2 cup sugar
-1 1/2 cups Kodiak Cakes Protein Pancake Mix
-1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
-1 TBS cinnamon
-1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Pre-heat over to 350 degrees. Mix wet ingredients with a mixer. Add in sweetener and continue mixing. Mix together dry ingredients. Add dry to wet ingredients and mix. Spray a muffin tray with non-stick cooking spray and use an ice cream scooper to scoop out batter into 12 muffins. Optional: top each muffin with 3 chocolate chips of choice (I used the fall limited edition of pumpkin spice chips). Bake for approximately 27 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool & enjoy!
These clock in at about 165 calories per muffin so they won't break the calorie bank!
