Clean Pumpkin Protein Muffins
1 can pumpkin puree
1/2 c. egg whites
1/2 c. unsweetened apple sauce
1 serving plain nonfat Greek yogurt
2 T. all-natural peanut butter
1 t. vanilla
4 packets stevia
1 c. oat flour
2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder
1/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. pumpkin pie spice
1 t. cinnamon
olive oil cooking spray
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together the pumpkin, egg whites, apple sauce, yogurt, peanut butter, stevia, and vanilla in a large bowl with an electronic mixer. Add in the oat flour, protein powder, baking soda, baking powder, and spices and mix until well-combined.
Prep your muffin tins with a coat of olive oil cooking spray and you don't even need to use muffin liners!
Now bake them for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees! You will know they are done when a toothpick or knife comes out clean. Allow the finished muffins to sit in the tin for about 5 minutes before removing them.
The pumpkin puree can be found on any grocer's shelves. Make sure its pure pumpkin with no added sugars. In my first batch of these muffins, I only used 2 packets of stevia and thought they tasted a little bland (oops, this girl has a sweet tooth problem) so I thought 4 packets would add the perfect amount of sweetness. Oat flour can be found in the organic section of your grocery store (this is also what I use in my Homemade Protein Bars so you can get multiple uses out of it)!
