today i tried to make some pumpkin protein pancakes without following a recipe. epic fail! it's embarrassing how badly they turned out and how horrible they tasted. not even remotely palatable. so there i was, on a rainy day, in my kitchen with not one extracurricular activity to have any particular person(s) to and an open can of pumpkin puree. what more could a girl ask for?
pumpkin muffins, that's what. a girl could ask for pumpkin muffins and these did not disappoint. totes healthy and plenty palatable.
1 3/4 cup quick cooking oats (i prefer "mom's best" brand)
1/4 cup vanilla whey
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup truvia baking blend
1 whole large egg
2 large egg whites
1 cup pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
1/2 cup low-fat yogurt (i used vanilla but plain would be just as good and greek, even better)
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
1 tsp vanilla
preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a muffin tin by using liners or spray.
using a food processor or blender, process the oats into oat flour.
add all of the wet ingredients and the truvia blend to a larger bowl and mix until combined (fluffy). add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until blended.
pour batter into prepared tin, filling each full. the batter will be thick.
yields 12 muffins
