Pumpkin Protein Muffins-Clean Eating Goodness

Liam is at an easy age (almost 6 1/2 months) so I can pretty much sit him anywhere and he is the happiest kid. This allows me to cook and bake and do all of the things that I used to do pre-baby.

This afternoon, I realized that I had NOTHING made for breakfast this week (for meals I made a black bean zuchinni stir fry, quinoa stew, pan seared salmon fillets, and have cabbage, asparagus, and broccoli for sides) so I decided to play around with some muffins. And from the ashes crumbs, arose an absolute delight:

Pumpkin Protein Muffins with a Maple Walnut Topping


1 ripe banana

1 can of pumpkin puree

1/4 cup apple sauce

8 drops vanilla stevia

4 egg whites

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup sweetener of choice

1/2 cups old fashioned oats

1 1/2 cups oat flour

2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder

1 tsp each baking powder and baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

All of the cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and pumpkin spice you want

Add all wet ingredients; mix well. Add dry ingredients in a separate bowl and mix well. Incorporate dry ingredients into wet ingredients.

For the maple walnut topping, add the following ingredients together and mix well: 2 tbsp maple syrup, 2 tbs melted coconut oil, 2 tbsp oat flour, and a 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts  

Place muffin mixture into a greased lined muffin pan (makes 18 muffins). Add a dollop of maple walnut mixture ontop of each muffin. Press topping lightly into the muffin mixture with back of spoon.

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. ENJOY!
