Hello friends! I forgot to save one muffin for a video today because I devoured these little guys, oops! I hope you enjoy them as well. The recipe is simple, the nutrition is stepped up and they pack a punch of flavor for everyone to enjoy! Let’s talk ingredients first.
Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes FlapJack & Waffle Mix: This product makes wonderful pancakes and waffles but I have come to find out they make super-duper-simple muffins! I have used this product for my Green Smoothie Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins. The ingredients in the mix are very simple starting with 100% whole grain wheat flour and oat flour providing a whopping five grams of fiber per serving! Whey protein concentrate is added to the mix that adds 14 grams of protein per serving.
Blueberries: For this recipe I have used frozen blueberries because that is what I had on hand but you may use fresh, too. The dark blue color of blueberries provide many nutrients that benefit our bodies from anti-aging to preventing certain types of cancers. Blueberries have some interesting science about maintaining brain function and even boosting memory. They are also high in fiber and provide an adequate amount vitamin C, K and magnesium.
Agave Nectar: A simple sweetener that I have found (experimented) to use a minimal amount and still provide the perfect sweetness in any recipe from energy bites (The Best Energy Bites) to salad dressings (Berry Spinach & Walnut Salad).
Optional ingredients: Lemon juice can totally be eliminated from the recipe if you do not like the flavor combination. My kiddos were not fans of lemon but I enjoyed it. Almond milk could also be substituted with any variety of milk or even water.
Enjoy with a cup of coffee for breakfast or mid-afternoon pick-me-up with iced tea or coffee. Ahh, cheers to you my friends!
