Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins

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!

    Can you put in the grams of egg whites instead of the count.. some of us use liquid egg whites straight from the carton

    • Derek Howes on October 12, 2017 at 12:00 am

      Hi Rosy! You can usually find the equivalent of either 1 whole egg or 1 egg white right on the bottle. Typically 1 serving is usually 1 whole egg (on mine it’s 46g).

    I almost cried when I found your website and all of your yummy recipes! I recently started eating healthy and working out and I have been searching EVERYWHERE for high protein/low fat/low sugar snacks to help curb my appetite and soothe my sweet tooth! I can’t wait to try all of these recipes, especially this one!!! Thanks for all your hard work putting these together for everyone to enjoy!!!

    I make at least one of your recipes every day, they are great…thanks. I would suggest to omit or reduce the Nutmeg in this recipe…it is overpowering.

    Hey Derek, something else I can use instead of pumpkin puréed?? Not a big fan of it…

    • Derek Howes on March 26, 2014 at 12:00 am

      I would try one of my other muffin recipes instead if you don’t want to use the pumpkin in this. Do you not like pumpkin at all?
