This Kodiak Cakes muffins recipe is a Weight Watcher’s hit - but it should be an" everyone" hit because it is a great recipe.

Kodiak Cakes Muffins Recipe

The concept is simple. Use Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes buttermilk pancake mix to make muffins with bananas and eggs. No sugar is added except for the bananas.

WW members love them because they can eat a muffin for one or two points depending on their plan. I love them because they are 100% whole wheat and low in sugar.

If you haven’t met Kodiak Cakes - let me introduce you.

This is a rare pancake mix that is 100% whole grain and only has 3 grams of sugar for three pancakes. This is the type of pancake mix that I can wholeheartedly endorse.

The key is finding it. Here is the Kodiak Cakes store locator. My spots for this mix are Target and Costco.

If you want to make pancakes (instead of muffins), all you have to do is add water which makes these great for camping.

I have been using ripe bananas as a sweetener for years. Check out my easy healthy banana bread recipe and chocolate banana protein pancakes.

Only one bowl is required and these bake much faster than banana bread.

DO use muffin liners. Due to the fact that these have very little fat, they will stick to your muffin tin and you might end up cursing at me.

I do my best to give clear instructions that will not ruin muffin tins.

These have a strong flavor of egg and bananas - which works. I would eat two of these for breakfast and feel satisfied.

You can dress them up with raisins, chocolate chips, nuts - whatever you like to toss into muffins (grated carrots, coconut….). Try not adding sugar.

Wonders curiosly what the Aussie version of this would be. I checked out that site. They dont ship here.



These muffins look great. Totally going to make these. Thanks for the tip about liners. I just bought a box of Kodiak at Costco and have seen the smaller boxes at various supermarkets. The pancakes are fantastic and you can up the protein, if you like, by using milk and egg instead of just water. All the info and directions are on the box. I've tried them all three ways and they are the best. Looking forward to trying these muffins.Thanks!

22 points total on green would mean 2 sp for 1 muffin.


@Mallomar - you are correct! I am sorry that I made that mistake. I have fixed it in the above post. 2 points on Green, 1 point on Blue and Purple.

It is because of the eggs not being zero. THANKS!

So glad I saw this post! I have been buying the Kodiak Cakes for a couple of years now. First discovered them at my local Costco. My family absolutely loves them, but I've never tried making anything else with the mix besides the pancakes. I've been intrigued with the other recipes that are on the back of the box, but never tried any of them. Luckily, we were able to snag two big boxes at Costco right before the pandemic hit hard. We are such a fan that we also buy the frozen Kodiak pancakes and waffles as well. My kids love them. They are quite a bit more expensive than the standard Eggo brand, but are more nutritious. Every one in a great while my local Publix will do a BOGO and that's when I'll stock up. I've been doing a lot of baking lately (hasn't everybody??!!) so I'm looking forward to trying this muffin recipe. Thanks so much!


Thank you, Lisa! I will definitely try these, as making ww purple 0-1 pt muffins seems to have become a hobby of mine! Check out this recipe for pumpkin pancakes, they have the suggestion of using Kodiak mix.…

Would these be baked in the full-size muffin tins or the mini-muffins?

Anything that can be substituted for the bananas? Thanks...

@Sheryl - regular sized muffin tins

@Debbie - good question. Without the bananas these become another kind of muffin. Perhaps I can try a muffin recipe without bananas and see how they turn out.

Thanks for the great questions!

I am very allergic to oatmeal...what can I substitute for oatmeal in the muffin recipe? Thanks.

@Shirley - The pancake mix has oat flour so this is a no go for you. Stay tuned for other non-oatmeal muffin recipes.

Debbie, You could use applesauce instead of banana. I plan to use that..and flaxseed instead of eggs. Looking forward to trying this.

Have you tried any add ins with these (blue berries, strawberries, chocolate chips)? I realize it would change the point value, but I was wondering about texture and things like that.

Thank you for all you do in helping to make healthy choices!

I made a few changes: 1 c oats, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp allspice, bit of nutmeg, and a diced peach. Still one point Purple. Filled cups to top. Yummy! Thanks, Sanck-Girl!


@Robin - silly question: is this in addition to, or instead of the Kodiak mix, eggs, and banana? Thanks. Sounds really yummy to add the peach.

@ Dolores: my additions were in ADDITION to Kodiak muffin mix, bananas and eggs. I increased the oats by 1/2 cup, up to 1 cup total and the cinnamon by 1/2 tsp, up to 1 tsp. I'm going to make the next batch with blueberries. The peach muffins were really yummy! I used one peach, chopped into small pieces - about a cup.


@Robin - thanks! Sounds delicious. Going to try that this weekend. And, I just got a box of blueberries - woohoo!

I have been making these for my hubby to grab before golf on those EARLY mornings. He is happy with a couple and I get to sleep in. I add 1/4 t. salt, 1 t.of vanilla, and 1 t.of cinnamon. I spray my full-size silicone cups and fill them to the top. Works great.


Carbs can cause inflammation. Try using ancient grains like kamut or teff or other ancient grain. These do not cause inflammation, in my opinion, and have other great benefits.


I spray/grease my pans as well, no sticking!

I love these muffins, soooooo good.

Can you come up with a pumpkin muffin PLEASE

i hate hate hate bananas. can you substitute something else for the bananas?


Could I use egg whites only, in place of the 4 whole eggs? These look amazing! Can’t wait to try them!

This is one of my favorite recipes. I make it weekly. I spray my muffin tins before and after adding the cupcake liners and no sticking.

Thanks for these, definitely one of my favorites.

I definitly suggest these muffins they are very tasty


What is the best way to store these?

@Amy - I think they would not be as good without the yolks. The yolks add nutrients and flavor.

@Alex - I would freeze these in a ziploc bag to store.

Thanks for your questions!!

Can I use any Kodiak

Mix ? I have whole wheat oat and honey, dark chocolate, chocolate chip and peanut butter???

Can i store these outside ? at room temp or do i have to put them in the fridge ?

When i put the nutrition facts in the w w app they came out as four points per muffin on blue.

I use this mix almost daily. I just make one mug muffin at a time for portion control. I vary it with pumpkin or baby food carrots (already pureed). I just made one this morning. I just wonder why that mix is so pricey?? Thanks for a new recipe.


Can you substitute pumpkin for the bananas? I love a pumpkin muffin this time of year! Thanks!

Can you recommend a way to incorporate pumpkin?

I am in love with kodiak cake mix, today I am using Greek yogurt instead of milk, it is good. And today I will include carrots, but I will use the mixer to mix the wet ingredients with the carrot. I am curious to see !

Update - I've been tinkering with a recipe I found online using canned pureed pumpkin for this time of year, although I love it any time of the year! 1 1/2 cups of Kodiak pancake mix, 1 1/2 cups of canned pumpkin, 2 eggs, 1 t. vanilla, 1 T. pumpkin pie spice, zero calorie sweetener to taste ( I use about 1/2 cup). I pour them into muffin tins sprayed non-stick spray and bake them at 350 for 25 minutes. And, if I've calculated correctly, they are 1 WW point on Purple. Woohoo!!



Really good but my recipe builder says it’s 2 points per muffin on blue.

My husband recently had a kidney transplant and was instructed not to eat bananas yet. I would love to have a substitution. Does anyone have any ideas?

I see a lot of great recipes on here, but I am on the new WW plan which is called the Personal Plan or Personal Points PP plan. I was just wondering if any of your recipes will start being posted as PP points. I am on the Blue PP. It is hard to get information from a lot of good sites on the new Weight Watchers Plan. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Would these also work with the dark chocolate version of Kodiak Cake power mix?

So, I experimented using the Dark Chocolate Kodiak Cake mix, and used applesauce since my bananas are not ripe enough yet. I used 1 1/3 cup applesauce, since the internet said that 1 medium banana is about 1/3 cup when mashed. I left out the vanilla and used 1/2 t peppermint extract instead. I needed to bake them longer - I did about 20 minutes, but next time I may do a little longer since the insides still felt not quite firm. But, they are delicious!

These are my go to 4 pm snack. Tides me over to dinner without blowing my day. Filling and satisfying.

No need to spray silicone cupcakes…. They don’t stick at all!!

I'd like to convert this to a loaf pan. What do you suggest for the bake time and temperature? Thanks!
