Batman is slightly addicted to mini muffins.  I don’t know if it’s because they’re mini or because they are muffins, but the kid can tear through a box of the prepackaged ones like the superhero that he is.  I’ve been trying to clean up his diet too,  so he and I made these the other day and they were awesome.  We are going to try a chocolate muffin recipe later this afternoon!

Pumpkin Protein Muffins

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter or coconut oil
  • 1 cup brown sugar (I used a blend)
  • 1/2 cup organic unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 cups pure pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1 t nutmeg
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup vanilla AdvoCare Muscle Gain
  • 1/4 cup flax seed
  • 2 t baking soda
  1. Blend butter/coconut oil and brown sugar.  Add applesauce, pumpkin, and spices.  Mix well.
  2. Add dry ingredients, mix.  Pour into greased muffin tins.
  3. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out mostly clean.
