Four recipes to help you stay sane till spring!
It’s been a long winter, and if you’re anything like us, then spring fever has set in and you’re now officially counting the days until you can get outside to enjoy some warm weather. To help get you through the final days of winter, we put together a list of four fun, creative ways to incorporate our muffin mixes into some delicious baking recipes that will help you make the most of the last days of the winter baking season. Even better, each of these recipes are sure to complement your first big spring get-together—whether it be a picnic at the park, backyard barbeque, or hosting friends and family to watch some college basketball.
Blueberry Lemon Cobbler
If there’s one dessert that will transport you to those warm summer evenings, it has to be a cobbler made with fresh fruit, and this Blueberry Lemon Cobbler Recipe is no exception. It’s made using Kodiak Cakes Blueberry Lemon Muffin Mix for the perfect combination of lemony zest and sweet blueberries, which gets an extra kick of flavor with the addition of two cups of fresh (or frozen) blueberries. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the perfect dessert—oh, and did we mention each serving is packed with 11 grams of protein?
Part of what makes this Blueberry Scone recipe so great is how versatile the finished product is. Not only do these scones make a great grab-and-go breakfast, but they’re equally as great as a sweet treat for house guests or as a portable snack for your first spring hike with the family. The recipe begins with our Blueberry Muffin Mix, giving each scone about 16 grams of protein and the nourishment of 100% whole grains. This recipe even calls for fresh blueberries and plain Greek yogurt resulting in dense and delicious scones you can serve during the big game or toss in a backpack before you go outside to enjoy a little spring sun.
Dark Chocolate Banana Bread
It’s tough to improve on something as perfect as freshly baked banana bread, but we figured out a way with our Dark Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe. The secret was bringing Kodiak Cakes Double Dark Chocolate Muffin Mix into, well, the mix. This adds about nine grams of protein to each slice of banana bread along with the oh-so craveable taste of semisweet chocolate chips, cocoa butter, and cocoa powder for a nourishing and chocolatey treat you don’t have to feel guilty about indulging in.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffin Top Cookies
Our Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffin Top Cookies Recipe combines everyone’s favorite aspect of muffins—the tops, obviously—with everyone’s favorite treat. The end result is a doubly delicious snack that’s perfect for your upcoming Easter dinner, backyard barbeque, or the big game. Simply mix Kodiak Cakes Chocolate Chip Muffin Mix with milk, one egg, butter, and peanut butter then scoop cookies onto a baking pan for a dessert or pre-game bite your guests will love. The best part is this recipe is loaded with the benefits of 100% whole grains, protein, and non-GMO ingredients, so you can let your guests know no one will call foul if they go ahead and have an extra cookie…or three.
