Happy September… It is all things pumpkin month.. because you know everywhere you turn you will see pumpkin flavored something or other πŸ˜‰ I am a fairly new pumpkin lover, I mean I don’t go mad over it but I do love baking with it.. I was recently in the U.S doing a little shopping and came across the pumpkin flax Kodiak cakes pancake mix. I love Kodiak mixes and use them often so I knew I had to give the pumpkin one a try.. These Kodiak cakes pumpkin chocolate chip muffins are so tasty , just 89 calories and 3 smart points each. If you can’t find the pumpkin flavor Kodiak no worries you can still makes these, see directions below.

  1. I love Kodiak mixes and will look for the Pumpkin Flax mix next time I go grocery shopping. Looking forward to trying these delicious-looking muffins. Thank you for the recipe!

  2. Hi, I’ve only tried 2 of your recipes (this one and the pumpkin spice cream cheese) and I noticed you don’t include salt in your recipes. Have you tried salt and taken it out due to taste/texture or is it a health concern on your part? I was going to try them again with salt to maybe boost the flavor a bit. Thoughts?

  3. I only have the regular Kodiak mix. What do you think about subbing canned pumpkin for the applesauce?

  4. This recipe looks great! Have you found Kodiak mixes in Canada, or do you order online?

    Thank you!

    1. I actually cross the border and shop since I am close but you can order online through the Target website, they deliver to Canada (at a cost of coarse lol) I have never found them in Canada

  5. 5 stars
    next time you are at target, check out the mini waffle maker, its $10. I bought the kodiak pancake/waffle mix and just made 2 mini waffles, they were great!!
    I follow you on fb and love all your recipes!!!

    1. Hi thanks for the suggestion on the waffle maker! I was looking for a recipe, saw this and your suggestion is like a double bonus. Thank you, thank you, thank you

  6. Thanks for this recipe! I don’t have the pumpkin spice Kodiak mix, but I followed the recipe using the peanut butter mix (minus the pumpkin spices) and they turned out perfectly!! I wasn’t crazy about the peanut butter mix as a waffle or pancake, but it is awesome as a muffin.

    1. Hi Katelyn, good to know as I too don’t really care for the PB mix, I will have to try it thanks πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, this was made before freestyle when eggs still had points so I typically would use egg whites to keep points down
