Winter, spring, summer…yup…pumpkin!

We combine the wonderful flavor of pumpkin with the delicious taste of APS Isomorph  in these super high protein pumpkin muffins to give you a major dose of protein with major added benefits!

These muffins are super moist and protein-packed.  You can add raisins or walnuts or even mini chips!

PUMPKIN CONTAINS MAJOR BENEFITS SUCH AS…

  • boosts vision and eye health
  • a good source of zinc
  • healthy heart
  • lowers blood pressure
  • regulates blood sugar
  • is a wonderful anti-oxidant
  • provides immunity
  • aids in sleep
  • anti-cancer benefits

Pumpkin also provides Vitamin C, potassium,  copper and 245% of your daily allowance of Vitamin A!

Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid) is abundant in vegetables and fruits. A water-soluble vitamin and powerful antioxidant, it helps the body form and maintain connective tissue, including bones, blood vessels, and skin.

Potassium is an essential mineral. Like sodium, it binds readily with other minerals, and does not occur naturally in an unbound state. Potassium is required for the proper functioning of many major organ systems. (https://www.drweil.com/vitamins-supplements-herbs/supplements-remedies/we-all-need-potassium/)

Copper is an essential trace mineral, present in all body tissues, which plays a role in the formation of connective tissue, and in the normal functioning of muscles and the immune and nervous systems. (https://www.drweil.com/vitamins-supplements-herbs/supplements-remedies/copper/)

Vitamin A plays a vital role in bone growth, reproduction and immune system health. It also helps the skin and mucous membranes repel bacteria and viruses more effectively. It is essential to healthy vision, and may slow declining retinal function in people with retinitis pigmentosa. (https://www.drweil.com/vitamins-supplements-herbs/vitamins/facts-about-vitamin-a/)

INGREDIENTS

7 oz (1/2 can of 15 oz.) pure pumpkin

1/2 cup applesauce

2 egg whites

3 scoops APS Isomorph vanilla flavor protein powder

3/4 cup old-fashioned oatmeal

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2  teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

3 packets of stevia (or sweetener to taste)

 

DIRECTIONS for muffins

Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Spray muffin tin with non stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl mix all wet ingredients together.  Add the dry ingredients making sure they are mixed in well.  If you like you can use a separate bowl to whisk dry ingredients together first before adding them to the wet ingredients.

Bake until the top is golden brown, puffed up and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and dry, about 17-20 minutes.
