Protein, pumpkin, banana, dark chocolate chips and oatmeal come together to make delicious protein packed muffins! Ingredients
1/2 cup organic coconut flour
1 cup grass-fed whey protein powder
1 cup organic old fashioned oatmeal
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon salt
10 packets of organic stevia
2 egg whites, slightly beaten
2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 cup organic canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1/3 cup unsweetened all-natural applesauce
1/2 ripe banana, mashed
1/4 cup Dark chocolate chips or Carob
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line 12 muffin cups with paper cups and spray with coconut or avocado spray.
In a large bowl mix flour, oatmeal, pumpkin pie spice baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. In a separate bowl combine pumpkin, mashed banana, stevia, almond milk, egg whites and applesauce. Add the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture and stir to combine. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full so that each is even. Place into the oven and bake for 23-28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of muffins comes out clean. Muffins are best served warm.
