12 Apr Low Carb Protein Pumpkin Muffins
When it’s time to get serious and focused, I get creative. These delicious pumpkin muffins are healthy and low carb and sugar free – meaning you won’t mess up your progress when indulging in them! They’re an alternative to pumpkin fritters because they’re not fried.
500ml cooked, mashed pumpkin
50ml almond/peanut butter
1-2 TBS sweetner/stevia
5ml vanilla essence
3 egg whites – lightly whisked
3 TBS coconut flour
1 serving vanilla whey protein
5ml baking powder
Preheat the oven to 220 degrees celsius and grease the hollows of a muffin tin with coconut oil. Mix the mashed pumpkin, almond/peanut butter, sweeter, vanilla essence, eggs, coconut flour, whey protein and baking powder.
Spoon the mixture into the greased muffin tin and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until done.
