Pumpkin season is here and that means seasonal cravings are back! Beat those pumpkin cravings this year at breakfast with some Pumpkin Chocolate Chips Protein Muffins. This high protein muffin recipe is packed with flavor, high in fiber, and super easy to make.
Start this recipe by taking out either a blender or food processor and your preferred size muffin pan. If you don’t have a blender or food processor, here’s a link to the blender I’ve been using.
Add right into your blender 12 large egg whites, 2 1/2 scoops of a chocolate protein powder, 15 packets of your choice sweetener, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground nutmeg, 3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, 1 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 cup of pumpkin puree, and 1 cup of rolled oats.
Did you know that cocoa powder is a great source of fiber with 2 grams for every 10 calories?
Blend or process everything until your pumpkin chocolate chip protein muffins mix is smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides as you blend or process it.
Protein Muffin Size
Take out your muffin pan, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and evenly distribute your mix into your pan filling your spots around 3/4 of the way full. I used a jumbo muffin pan and made 6 muffins today.
Top your pumpkin chocolate chip protein muffins with 11 chocolate chips each and/or anything else you want like some crushed up nuts or fruit!
Put your muffins into the oven on 350F/176C for around 20-22 minutes. This may take more or less time depending on the size of your muffin pan so keep an eye on them!
