The Pumpkin Muffins You Won’t Feel Guilty About Eating

I’m always looking for a new treat to bake for the family, but especially love when I can find something full of nutritious ingredients!

OK, I gotta say I’m pretty proud of these protein pumpkin muffins with apples and pecans. Most of my recipes are adaptations of other recipes that I find either online or from a friend, but these bad boys are all my own. They are loaded with fiber and protein, which is a great combo for a quick, on-the-go breakfast or a post-workout snack. Here’s my recipe:
Ingredients:1 can organic pumpkin (16 ounces)
1 cup diced organic apple (about 2 small apples)
2 eggs
2/3 cup oats
1/2 cup cocoa nibs
1/2 cup diced pecans
1/2 cup coconut flour (or flour of your choice)
1/3 cup applesauce
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

To Make:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and distribute evenly into a greased muffin tin (or you can use liners). Bake for 18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean, and let cool for 10 minutes. Makes a baker’s dozen. Enjoy!
