5 minutes
18 minutes 15 seconds
23 minutes 15 seconds

1 and 1/3 cup Kodiak Cakes buttermilk flapjack pancake mix ( you can substitute the Kodiak with Krusteaz Protein Pancake Mix, Buttermilk or any other pancake mix-keep in mind the point values will vary)

1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 – 3/4 cup cup water ( give or take depending on the batter consistency)
1 tsp pumpkin spice
1 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp zero point white sugar substitute ( I use Lakanto Monkfruit Classic Sweetener)
1 tsp baking powder
60-120 No sugar added chocolate chips ( I use Lily’s milk or dark chocolate chips or ChocZero milk chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and using a muffin tin. Line a full size muffin tin with 12 liners.
In a medium bowl add pumpkin purée, egg, water, extract, and sugar substitute. Stir well.
In a separate bowl combine pancake mix, pumpkin spice, cinnamon. baking powder.
Add dry ingredients into the wet slowly as you stir. Stir just until combined. Then fold in 1/2 of the no sugar added chocolate chips.

1-2 PersonalPoints™ for one muffin

*This number shows the PersonalPoints™ range. The points will vary based on your individualized plan.

Smartpoints: GREEN: 1 SmartPoint for 1 muffin or 2 servings for 3 Smart Points if using egg whites or 2 SmartPoints per muffin if using 1 whole egg BLUE/PURPLE: 1 SmartPoint for muffin or 3 SmartPoints for 2 servings

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.
Store in an airtight container.
The point value range can vary depending on the brand of pancake mix or if you replace that with all purpose flour.
For extra protein: 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)
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.
