Time To Bake: Kodiak Cakes Pumpkin Muffins

Time To Bake: Kodiak Cakes Pumpkin Muffins

Ahh, fall. The season of golden leafs, pumpkin spice, and everything nice. I’m a Florida girl, and even though it is 95 degrees outside, I am over the moon excited to indulge in the new season, even if the weather in my town hasn’t gotten notice to cool on down!

I love the flavors that fall brings as well - pumpkin, cinnamon, apple, you name it - it’s all wonderful in my book! I  recently discovered Kodiak Cakes and was excited to use the mix in muffin form. I figured since fall is upon us I might as well add in a pumpkin twist! The turnout was delicious, and the muffins are a quick and easy breakfast option for the family during  our busy mornings!

Better yet, the prep for these muffins was a breeze. Double win if you ask me! If you’re interested in trying out the recipe, instructions are below:



2 cups Kodiak mix (I used the chocolate chip mix but you can use your favorite!)

1 cup milk

1 egg

¼ cup butter, softened 

¾ cup pumpkin puree

¾ cup brown sugar

½ teaspoon allspice

2 teaspoons cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl (I mixed the dry first and then added in the wet). 

  3. Spoon batter into muffin tins about ¾ way full.

  4. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until muffins are golden brown on top.

  5. Let cool completely.

  6. Enjoy!

If you venture to try this recipe, I’d love to hear your thoughts! Better yet, what are your favorite fall recipes? I want them all!
