  • Muffin Pan
  • Oven


  • 2 cups Kodiak Power Cakes Buttermilk Flapjack Mix
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ¾ cup maple sugar you can easily substitute with light brown sugar or regular sugar here. The maple sugar, however, adds incredible flavor!
  • ¼ cup avocado oil
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • *Optional: raw turbinado cane sugar for sprinkling on top before baking


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place 12 cupcake liners in a muffin pan.
  • Whisk all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl until smooth.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the muffin cups.
  • Sprinkle the tops with a little raw turbinado sugar, if desired.
  • Bake for 16 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.


  • Don't overmix! Once the wet ingredients are thoroughly combined with the flapjack mix, pour the batter into the muffin pan, and get it in the oven.
  • For fluffy muffins with a moist and tender crumb, don't let the batter sit once it's mixed. Instead, immediately pour it into your muffin pan, and get the pan into the oven asap.
  • Add ½ cup of chocolate chips or chopped walnuts to the batter for a delicious variation.
