Are you feeling pumpkin crazy yet? These muffins are packed with protein, which is perfect for after a workout or to keep you full throughout the day.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 Cup pure pumpkin purée
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 serving vanilla protein, such as ALOHA Vanilla Protein
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 Cup coconut, such as ALOHA Coconut
  • 1/4 Cup almond or coconut milk
  • 1 Cup coconut flour

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a muffin tin and set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl whisk the eggs until the yolk and the whites are seamless. Mix in the other liquids and then the remaining ingredients.

Fill up the muffin tin with the mixture — about one-third cup for each muffin, and for a softer muffin, scoop a larger serving of the mixture into the tins.

Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the edges start to brown.

Pumpkin Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Pumpkin Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
