These incredibly moist and protein packed Apple Cinnamon Protein Muffins are sweetened with maple syrup and are the best post workout breakfast!


  • 1 cup Kodiak Cakes Protein Packed Flapjack and Waffle Mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup apple, shredded
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray muffin tin with coconut oil or line with muffin liners.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk dry ingredients together. Add apple and stir to combine.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk wet ingredients together. Add wet to dry and stir until just combined.
  4. Divide batter evenly among 6 muffin tins.
  5. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing muffins from tin and onto cooling rack.


A reader has success turning these into lactation muffins! Add 1/2 cup oats, 2 scoops (~1/4 cup) brewers yeast, 1/4 cup flax meal, increased the applesauce to 3/4 cup and add ~1/4 cup almond milk.

Weight Watchers Points: I personally do not calculate nutritional value for my recipes, but this version was calculated by Swanson Health Products for their website and it is showing as 4 smart points. They found a light maple syrup that was only 6 smart points (instead of 12), so that would make the recipe 2-3 smart points each. It would be 5 smart points for 2 muffins if you bought a light syrup.
