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

      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?

    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.

    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!!!

      Don’t cry! Haha! Thanks Stephanie. I hope you like everything you try 🙂

    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).
