Cinnamon Sugar Kodiak Cakes Muffins

I don’t know if you realized this yet, but I L-O-V-E Kodiak Cakes. I first heard about them on a Shark Tank episode (even though they ended up turning down the sharks), so when I finally found some at Target a few years ago, I was so excited. And y’all… from my first pancake I was hooked! 

I love that these mixes offer a healthier spin on your traditional baking mix. They use 100% whole grains, have no added sugar or preservatives, and only need water to make some delicious flapjacks and waffles. They have their original mix, but over the years have grown to include mixes like their Power Cakes mix with added protein (which is my faaave!), Gluten Free mix, Organic Oats mix and Superfoods mix. They also have all sorts of muffin mixes, dessert mixes (hellooo brownies), and oatmeal cups for breakfast on the go. I can’t wait to try them all! But, best of all, you can use the mixes for all kinds of different baked goods, from scones and quick bread to muffins and cookies. Kodiak Cakes has provided me with a quick and easy way to make some nutritious baked goods with ingredients I can trust, and a quality that is unparalleled.

So I’m sure it’s no surprise that when I found their Power Cakes mix at Costco, I didn’t think twice about adding it to my cart! I mean, a jumbo box of my favorite baking mix? Yes, please! 

The other day I had some friends come over to my new apartment, and when thinking of what to make, muffins came to mind. I’ve created all sorts of muffin recipes in the past, and wanted to do something a little different this time around. Cinnamon sugar came to mind, and so this recipe was born! After some taste testing with one of my best friends, a little refinement and lots of muffins later, I come to you with these ah-ma-zing Cinnamon Sugar Kodiak Cake Muffins.

Seriously, they’re SO good! 

My favorite part? The cinnamon sugar on top. *heart eyes*
Pair these muffins with some eggs and fresh fruit in the morning for a nutritious breakfast, or heat up with a little butter on the inside for a midday snack! I’m sure you’ll love these muffins just as much as I do. ;)

    Is there a reason you use just the egg whites instead of whole eggs? I don’t like to waste the yoke, so could I do two eggs instead of three whites?

  18. Happily the Hicks

    You can definitely use whole eggs instead of egg whites! I’ve done it both ways :) I would recommend exactly what you said- two whole eggs instead of 3 egg whites.

    Love this recipe looks amazing! I’m new at baking so i don’t have cupcake pan can i use a bread pan instead of making cupcakes? Also just curious about how many calories/ cupcake?

  20. Happily the Hicks

    June 25th, 2019 at 1:58 pm

    You can definitely make this in a bread pan I’m not sure how much longer you’d need to bake it, but I’d put it in for about 35 minutes, then check on it to see how it’s going. :) And I don’t count calories so I don’t know what the calorie count per muffin is. So sorry!

  24. Happily the Hicks

    July 2nd, 2019 at 3:40 pm

    By “base” do you mean the Kodiak Cakes mix? If so, then yes – here’s a peanut butter banana recipe I did that is SO yummy. :)

    Can you make a coffee cake instead if muffins with this recipe?

  32. Happily the Hicks

    April 16th, 2020 at 12:36 pm

    That’s such a great idea! I’m sure you can. Just put it in an 8×8 pan and bake until cooked through. Let me know how it turns out! Yum!

    These look amazing & will happen soon! Just wondering if I can use whole milk instead of almond milk? Also, what do you think about throwing in some diced apple?

  34. Happily the Hicks

    April 16th, 2020 at 12:36 pm

    Yes you TOTALLY can! And oh my yes – diced apple would be sooo yummy. Let me know how it goes using that in the recipe!

    Have you tried these with flax egg instead of regular egg? I was planning on making them with the new plant-based kodiak cakes mix and a flax egg! Hope you are staying well during this strange time. :)

  36. Happily the Hicks

    April 16th, 2020 at 12:35 pm
