NOTE: As you probably know by now, Kodiak cakes mix is one of my favorite ingredients. I use it for so many things. This healthier version of a morning muffin is low on sugar and high on protein and whole grains. It is also another great example of flexibility when cooking. You can use a flavored yogurt to a slightly different taste, any kind of nut that you like and certainly any type of dried fruit. (Try dried figs – one of my favs!) You can use regular butter, full fat milk or real maple syrup. They all work well and you are in charge here. I like to make a batch at the beginning of the week so I’m good to go for breakfast all week. They store well in the freezer too. Just freeze on a tray for about an hour then put in a plastic bag for longer storage. They don’t last long in my house but they’ll hold well for at least a month. If you have any trouble finding Kodiak mix at your grocery store, you can pick it up at Amazon.com
