Pumpkin Protein Muffins

Well it is Fall ya’ll. Still feels like summer outside but inside my house, fall lingers in the air. I have been craving crispy fall air with pumpkin smells so I decided to try a new recipe. I got this recipe from www.michellemariefit.com . I changed a couple of things. This is just before they went into the oven.

Recipe:

2 1/2 cups of whole oats

1 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/8 cup organic honey

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

I did not use nuts but 1/2 cup walnuts could be used

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine all wet ingredients and mix well. Add all the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour batter into a greased muffin pan. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top and bake for about 20 minutes or until done.
