Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F (218°C).
  • Put 4 muffin papers in your muffin tin. Spray them with cooking spray.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, stir the Kodiak Cakes mix, milk powder, and cinnamon together. In a small bowl, mix the mashed banana, oil, and whole milk. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently stir. 
  • Divide the batter evenly between the four prepared muffin liners. Top each muffin with chocolate chips (if using).
  • Bake muffins for 10-12 minutes on a rack about one-third of the way down in the oven.
  • After baking, check the Kodiak banana muffins for doneness by inserting a toothpick in one of them. The toothpick should come out clean or with small crumbs.
  • Cool the muffins on a baking rack for 30-60 minutes before putting in the fridge. Enjoy these Kodiak Cakes banana muffins fully chilled for the best texture. 

Notes

This is a level 3 recipe (weight maintenance and active lifestyles). I typically give recipes with flour the bump to level 3. That said, I would consider these Kodiak banana muffins a better fit than most muffins if your goal is weight loss.
First off, these are whole grain muffins with higher protein density than your average muffin. Fiber and protein are two food components that may help you stay full on fewer calories. This can make it easier to maintain the calorie deficit needed for weight loss.
Second, these banana Kodiak Cakes muffins pack a lot of fruit into a small muffin – ¼ of a banana per serving. Fruits and vegetables are good food choices if you want to lose weight (and they are nutritious options in general).
Finally, this recipe is for a small batch of reasonably-sized muffins. Each banana muffin is under 100 calories, and you can eat the whole batch for under 400 calories. It should be easier to portion control these compared to those giant 500-600 calorie bakery muffins.
So, that brings me to an important question: Are Kodiak Cakes muffins good for you?
Honestly, I can’t answer that question because I don’t know you and what your needs are. If you have celiac disease, these gluten-containing muffins are not a healthy choice for you. If you don’t have special dietary needs, I would consider this recipe a more nutritious choice than most baked goods.
That said, there was a class action complaint made against Kodiak Cakes accusing them of deception regarding certain health claims. I want to clarify here that recipes made with Kodiak Cakes are usually low in protein compared to protein group foods. Also, meals made with minimally processed whole foods will often be a more nutritious choice than muffins.
Nutrition information is for one muffin without the chocolate chip topping.
