Course: Breakfast, Snacks | Cuisine: American | Method: Baked Goods
Diet: Dairy Free, Gluten Free | Servings: 12 Muffins


  • 3 eggs – the perfect protein kick!
  • ¾ cup creamy almond butter – for that nutty goodness.
  • ¾ cup pumpkin purée – because it’s not just for lattes!
  • ⅓ cup coconut sugar – a touch of sweetness.
  • ¾ cup almond flour – keeping it gluten-free.
  • ⅓ cup Vanilla Protein – for that muscle-loving boost.
  • 1 tsp baking soda – the secret to fluffy muffins.
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract – a dash of flavor magic.
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon – spice it up!
  • ½ cup mini dark chocolate chips (optional) – because who doesn't love a bit of chocolate?

Let's Bake!

  1. Preheat the Oven: Fire up your oven to a toasty 350°F and get your muffin pan ready with a little nonstick spray.

  2. Blend the Goodness: Toss everything (save the chocolate chips for later) into a blender or food processor. Whizz until you've got a smooth, creamy mix.

  3. Chip In: Fold in those optional chocolate chips if you're feeling a little extra.

  4. Fill 'Em Up: Pour the batter into the muffin pan, almost to the brim. Feel free to sprinkle on more chocolate chips if you're all about that choco-life.

  5. Bake to Perfection: Slide them into the oven for 12 to 13 minutes. You're looking for that perfect puff and a clean toothpick test.

  6. Cool Down: Let those muffins chill for a moment (about 10 minutes) before moving them to a cooling rack.

Rookie Tips:

  • Protein Choice: We're all about that neutral or vanilla vibe in our protein powder. Rookie Vegan Protein is our go-to!
  • Nut Butter Fun: Creamy almond butter is the star, but peanut butter can jump in for a twist. Just a heads-up, peanut butter will make its presence known.
  • Full to the Brim: Don’t be shy; fill those muffin cavities generously.
  • Watch the Clock: These beauties bake fast. Keep an eye out to avoid over baking.
  • Storing: In an airtight container, these muffins will hang tight and tasty for up to 3 days.
