What’s orange, delicious, and filled with cream? A hearty pan of Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins, of course! Flavors of pumpkin spice only get more satisfying with each bite— seriously, it’s a fall favorite. We’d say take our word for it, but we'll let the muffins do that talking.



  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin purée
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups Kodiak Pumpkin Power Cakes Flapjack & Waffle Mix


Cream Cheese Layer:

  • 1 8-ounce package of cream cheese 
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup


  1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, maple syrup, milk, pumpkin purée, eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  3. Add in the Kodiak mix and stir until well combined.
  4. In a small bowl, add the 8-ounce package of cream cheese and pure maple syrup and place in the microwave for 30 seconds. Remove from microwave and mix until well combined.
  5. Line a muffin sheet with cupcake liners. Divide the batter evenly among the pan (about 1/4 cup batter per muffin).
  6. Carefully add about a tablespoon of cream cheese mixture right each muffin cup.
  7. Using a toothpick or fork, gently swirl the cream cheese mixture into the muffin batter.
  8. Garnish the top of the muffins with oats, flax seeds, or pumpkin seeds (optional).
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
  10. Let muffins cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!


Pro Tip: Don't have Pumpkin Power Cakes on hand? Sub it out for 2 cups Kodiak Buttermilk Power Cakes and omit the milk. Then add 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice, an additional 1/2 cup maple syrup, and an additional 1/2 cup pumpkin purée.
