- 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?
Preheat the Oven: Fire up your oven to a toasty 350°F and get your muffin pan ready with a little nonstick spray.
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.
Chip In: Fold in those optional chocolate chips if you're feeling a little extra.
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.
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.
Cool Down: Let those muffins chill for a moment (about 10 minutes) before moving them to a cooling rack.
- 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.
