These were originally supposed to be muffins.... But then I thought they'd be really yummy with some skinny cream cheese icing (see my previous recipe here). As I suspected, they are delicious - with OR without icing!! These are not only low cal and tasty, but they have some protein hidden in there too!!
3 eggs + 6 tablespoons egg whites
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup coconut oil - melted
1/4 cup no sugar added applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup coconut flour
3 scoops vanilla protein powder (I used Body Fortress)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup reduced sugar Craisins
1/2 tsp salt substitute
Preheat oven to 350. Line or grease muffin tin.
Whisk eggs, pumpkin, coconut oil, applesauce, vanilla & stevia together. Add flour, salt, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and stir well. ((Taste batter - if it needs to be a bit sweeter, add more stevia)). Fold in Craisins.
Scoop into muffin cups.
Bake 30 minutes.
