Pumpkin spice pancake muffins

September 1, 2019

Happy September friends! September is hands down my favorite month and I’d take 12 of them all year long if I could. There are so many things to love about this month, as a parent, it’s back to school for the kids, although now that my daughter is in her senior years of high school thats not as exciting as when they are 8 and you just want them out of your house haha. I celebrate both my birthday and wedding anniversary this month (19 years and counting) We are welcomed by my favorite season fall, I like summer don’t get me wrong but fall is where it’s at for me, I love the smell of the crisp fall air, I love that you can enjoy the sunshine in the afternoon with just a t-shirt but then need a cozy sweater come evening. A hot cuppa (tea for me) taste so much better when it’s actually warming you up on a chilly morning. The leaves are changing and look oh so beautiful, pumpkins are everywhere and in everything haha! As a recipe blogger fall is my favorite time to get busy in the kitchen and create all those comfort food dishes that we crave, think stews, chilis, soups and yes all the pumpkin baked goods our little hearts desire πŸ™‚

These pumpkin spice pancake muffins are so simple to whip up, I used Kodiak cakes my favorite pancake mix and these delicious anytime treats are just 1 smart point each on WW freestyle.

    Hi, I do not use almond milk and I was wondering if subbing fat free milk would alter the recipe any. Thanks for your input.

      Hi Joyce, I don’t think overall it will increase the points much, if you use skim milk it is 2SP for 1/2 cup.. it might make it where if you have 2 or 3 muffins at a time you’ll need to add an extra point if that makes sense.. you can build it in the WW recipe builder to confirm

    I made the recipe and just had one- pretty good and not overly sweet. A nice, WW friendly way to get a pumpkin spice treat!

    YUM YUM YUM!!!!! I added 1 tbsp of brown sugar and used skim milk. 2 muffins for 3 pts or 2 pts for 1 muffin. I love that you don’t make everything overly sweet. I adjusted to taste! Thanks for this recipe!

      Hi Christine, Yay, so glad you enjoyed them.. I agree and think that if people want things sweeter they can just add a little on the top

      Costco carries the Kodiak Mix but it’s sometimes a hit or miss if they have it in.

    OMG. Whipped these up this morning and we are huge fans!! I used the cinnamon oat version of Kodiak cakes and subbed brown sugar swerve instead of regular brown sugar. Tastes like a super yummy coffee cake!

      I should clarify… my edits make these 2 points. But well worth it! And it is 2 points for one, 4 points for 2. And bonus…. 5 points for 3 (yep. I TOTALLY had 3 for breakfast!)

    Very delicious. Just sweet enough and just the right size. I added 1/2 cup Newfoundland Partridgeberries which made them very colourful and a dimension of tartness.

      Yum.. I have never heard of those berries but they sound intriguing πŸ™‚

    When I put it in my WW calculator it says 2 points per muffin…is that correct? In your notes it says Freestyle is 1 point per muffin.

    I just made these. Ate the first one plain and I think I’ll try adding a little more pumpkin spice next time. I then ate a second one with some 0 point apple butter on top, and it was delicious! I will be making these again. Thank you for the recipe!

    I usually make these with Birch Benders pancake mix. I ran out so today I used the Kodiak. They are much better with the Birch Benders. Love this recipe.

    These were great! Although I made a couple of modification. I used Trader Joes Protein Pancake Mix (same pts as Kodiak), and used Monk Fruit Golden Sweetener instead of brown sugar. Because the monk fruit sweetener is zero points, I added about 1/4 cup into the mix, and then topped them with a generous amount of monk fruit sweetener mixed with cinnamon. Even with these additions, the muffins are not very sweet, but just sweet enough. My guys spread apple butter on them (not for me!) and were very happy!

      Hi Deborah, if you read my new post on the MyWW program it explains that I was already listing old SP in my recipes and where to look for them πŸ™‚
