Ingredients in Kodiak Cakes Muffins with Sprinkles

Made with simple ingredients available at your local grocery stores, the muffin batter comes together super fast and tastes dreamy! Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk (I use skim, but whole milk or buttermilk would also work)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1.5 cups Kodiak cakes pancake or waffle mix (Available at your local Costco)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup sprinkles
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 12-hole muffin tin and cupcake liners (optional)


How to make Kodiak Cake Muffins (step by step)

Now that you have your ingredients, let’s walk through the simple steps of this rainbow muffin recipe. 

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray or coconut oil.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and add in brown sugar.
  3. Mix in the apple sauce, milk, and vanilla extract with a spoon or spatula.
  4. Stir in the Kodiak flapjack mix and baking powder; keep 1 tbsp of sprinkles aside for topping, and fold in the rest.
  5. Divide batter evenly into your 12 muffin liners (if using), use the remaining sprinkles on top then bake in the oven for 18 minutes.
  6. Cool muffins on a wire rack before serving

Variations and substitutions

I love the light, vanilla flavor of these muffins as they are, but it’s also SO easy to make swaps that fit your dietary needs and flavor preferences. Here are some ideas:

  • Non-dairy milk: If dairy isn’t an option for you, swap out the milk for oat, coconut, or almond milk. Soy milk would also work. 
  • Refined sugar-free: To lower the points even further, try swapping out the brown sugar for an alternative sweetener like maple syrup, honey, or stevia. 
  • Fun add-ons: If sprinkles aren’t your thing, you can try adding sliced almonds or walnuts, blueberries, lemon zest, or chocolate chips.
  • Alternatives to apple sauce: In place of apple sauce, you could use mashed bananas, greek yogurt, or even peanut butter.  
  • Egg-free: Omit the eggs and add an additional ½ cup of milk or replace the eggs with flax eggs.
  • Gluten-free: Use a 1:1 style gluten-free flour mix. 

Tips and Tricks for Kodiak Sprinkle Muffins

  • Check for doneness: Stick a muffin with a toothpick to make sure they’re fully cooked. No wet batter should come out on the toothpick. 
  • Batter consistency: Muffin batter ranges from thin and runny to very thick. Generally, the thinner the batter, the lighter the muffins will be when baked.
  • Storage: The muffins store well in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-5 days or keep them in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

  1. I’ve been on a rough baking streak and needed this win! They are delicious! And I scanned my ingredients into the recipe builder and mine came out to 2 points on green, which makes them even tastier. 🙂 I followed the recipe exactly, including the 18 min. baking time. Thanks for this!

  2. I made these this morning. They are not as pretty as yours because I probably didn’t properly ‘fold in’ my sprinkles. So my cupcakes are light brown in color, and I accidentally used a whole cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Despite my mishaps – they still turned out nice. Not super sweet like you said but I may add some fruit and a little syrup, and I have a yummy breakfast or snack on hand for those sweet cravings. Thank you so much for your hard work!!

  3. These muffins are so good, whether or not you are on WW. I bake these all the time. Sometimes vary the extract, using coconut with coconut flakes, maple extract with a few walnuts etc. also almond poppyseed. Very versatile and tasty! Thank you for the recipe!

  4. I made these tonight and they are great! I accidentally only used 1 cup of the Kodiak mix, and they still turned out good – just a little soft. I bet they’d be perfect with the full amount. I also swapped out the vanilla extract for cake batter extract and it was amazing. Tasted just like a funfetti boxed cake mix!
