Step by Step Directions
For the full recipe instructions, scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of the page.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. In a large mixing bowl, add the greek yogurt, maple syrup, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Whisk until well combined.
Next, add the dry ingredients. Add the 1 1/4 cups Kodiak Cakes Power Mix, vanilla protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon to the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined.
In a separate small bowl, add the blueberries and 1 tsp of Kodiak Cakes mix. Toss gently until the blueberries are coated in the mix.
Gently fold the blueberries in to the batter. Don’t over mix.
Add muffin liners* to a muffin pan. Add muffin batter to each muffin cup, until it’s ¾ of the way filled. Bake for 16-20 minutes, or until the tops are lightly golden brown.
Tips & Variations
- Be sure to mix the blueberries with 1 tsp of Kodiak Cakes mix. This will help prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the muffins.
- Let the muffins cool completely before eating them if you don't want the muffin to stick to the muffin liner.
- They're also delicious with butter & honey or peanut butter on them.
- Looking to make them extra sweet? Add a few chocolate chips.
- Serve these muffins with egg bites or a smoothie for a great breakfast.
Store these muffins in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months. We don't recommend storing them on the counter as they will perish quickly.
