I recently tried a pumpkin muffin recipe and I wanted to give my impression:

They are pretty good in the morning, if you don't have the time and patience to make a good and healthy breakfast


1 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 scoop of Whey Protein (vanilla flavor)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon stevia or something similar
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 large egg white
1/4 cup low-fat milk or almond milk
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line muffin tin with muffin cups.

Whisk dry ingredients and spices together in a large bowl.

Add pumpkin, oil, milk and egg white to a medium size bowl and mix thoroughly. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredient and mix well.

Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.

Fill muffin cases evenly and bake for 18 to 25 minutes

Makes 14 muffins.

I put them in the freezer (when they totally chilled out!) because they aren't won't last more than 2 days on your counter. Even if they are kept in a container. I took them out of the freezer the night before.

App. 250 calories each muffin.

My inspiration came from Fit Sugar
