Moist and packed with yummy fall flavor and the perfect amount of spice, these Pumpkin Protein Muffins are so delicious that I can guarantee that no one will ever know that they are loaded with protein and healthy carbs, and that they are low in sugar! 

Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cup old fashioned oats (use gluten free, as needed)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice OR cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar*
  • 1/4 cup vanilla or multi-purpose protein powder (1 scoop if using IdealLean)
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup So Delicious Dairy Free Yogurt Alternative (any variety works)
  • 3 egg whites**
  • Optional add-ins: 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, pecans, or almonds, mini chocolate chips, raisins or dried cranberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil cupcake liners, or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

  2. In a blender, (or food processor), blend the oats and all other dry ingredients, until oats are ground. Add all other ingredients, except add-ins, and mix until smooth. ( Note: I usually stop the blender and help move mixture around with a spoon)

  3. Divide mixture among muffins tins, and place into pre-heated oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until tops are lightly golden brown. Note this batter is very moist, and a toothpick may not come out clean…Don’t worry it is baked through if the tops are golden brown!

  4. Cool muffins before removing from pan. ENJOY!!!

Recipe Notes

*I used Stevia in the Raw Baking Blend. If using packets of stevia, I recommend using about 5, or adjust according to taste.

**If using carton egg whites this will be 6 tablespoons.
