The end of the year is usually the calm before the January storm. We’re talking a major storm. It’s like rain, wind, thunder, lightning, and we’ll even throw in some hail for fun. I just gets extremely busy for me so anything that I can do to make life easier is a must. Breakfast is usually a grab and go type of item because it’s extremely likely that I’m running around like a chicken with their head cut off. These Eggnog Kodiak Cake Muffins are perfect for a quick, light breakfast or easy snack. They have a hint of eggnog flavor, aren’t loaded with a ton of sugar, and will keep you full until your next meal. The best part is they have half the calories of regular muffins.
Depending on what I’m going to be using these for, I’ll make them smaller or larger. If I’m going to be taking them as a snack I will usually make more smaller ones out of the batter. If they’re going to be my go to breakfast for the morning then I make them larger so that they keep me full for most of the morning.
This particular batch I ended up filling with a little but of eggnog frosting that I made by mixing Califia Farms Holiday Nog, cinnamon, nutmeg, cream cheese, and little but of Stevia in the raw. I didn’t really measure out but played around with the quantities until I got the consistency that I wanted. I poked holes in the center of the muffins and filled the middle by putting the frosting in a sandwich bag, cutting the corner, and filling the muffins. The frosting added just enough sweetness to the muffins.Print
