Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Hey everyone! Going along with the whole Pumpkin craze, I thought I should make some pumpkin spice muffins! These are the perfect fall treat! And guess what? They're under 70 calories and only have one gram of sugar, but you would never guess! This recipe is also gluten and dairy free! Hope you enjoy!

Pumpkin Spice Muffins
(Makes 12 muffins)

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 scoops Vanilla Protein Powder (I use Perfect Fit)
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2-1 cup almond milk (depending on how moist you like them)
  • 1/4 cup stevia (optional)*
  • Optional: add dark chocolate chips or dried cranberries
Combine and mix all ingredients in a bowl, slowly stirring in the almond milk. The batter shouldn't be to runny. Fill muffin tin with batter and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Let cool and enjoy! Frost with greek yogurt, peanut butter, or even Pumpkin Butter!
* I didn't add any stevia and I thought they were delicious but, if you want them sweeter, go ahead and add it.
