What ingredients do I need to make these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins?
What can I use to add extra protein to these muffins?

To increase the protein content in these muffins you may substitute a 1/3 cup Kodiak Pancake mix for 1/3 cup (100-110 calorie) flavor protein powder ( I use Devotion Angel Food Cake)

Adding the protein will promote satiety and makes these the perfect, portable snack!

The protein powder I love and recommend is Devotion Nutrition Angel Food Cake Protein Powder.

It’s gluten-free, 2 PersonalPoints, and has 20 grams of protein for just 1 scoop!

How do I know how many points this is on my WW individualized plan? 

Click the link below to go to the recipe builder. You’ll first need to sign into your WW account and then the recipe builder will upload. Be sure to edit the recipe with any ingredients that you use that are different. The recipe builder is the most accurate way to create, obtain, and track the Personal Points on your individualized plan.

*The recipe builder link only works for WW members located in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, you’ll need to access the WW app manually to create the recipe in the recipe builder. 

Tips:

  1. I recommend using either foil muffin liners or spraying the muffin tin with non stick cooking spray. The paper muffin liners tend to stick to the batter.
  2. Store in an airtight container.
  3. The point value range can vary depending on the brand of pancake mix or if you replace that with all purpose flour.
  4. The Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener (sugar substitute) that is used in this recipe is zero points. Please keep in mind-the point value can vary depending on the brand of sugar substitute you choose to use.  Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener also has a 1:1 ratio to real sugar. If you use a different sugar substitute you will want to use the equivalent to real sugar that is recommended on back of the sugar substitute package.

    How do you know how much liquid to use? What is the batter consistency that you are looking for? Thanks!!

    Hi Erika

    Start with 1/2 cup and if the batter is too thick just keep adding 1 Tbsp of water at a time until the batter can be easily scooped into muffin tins. The batter should be on the thicker side vs runny.

    Thank you

    Can you use any other types of flour beside the Kodiak? Like coconut or almond? Something gluten free thank you!

    Hi Maritza

    Yes, the Kodiak pancake mix can be substituted for almond flour, whole wheat flour, regular white flour, coconut flour. Thank you so much!

    Do you think I can put the mixture in a small tin, instead of the muffin tin? If I cut it into 12 pieces, would the points be the same?
