A Day For Pumpkin

Good morning there lovlies.

A typical cold dreary fall day here in New England.

Pumpkin Spice coffee started my day.

Starbucks yummy coffee with GNC Pumpkin Spice Shake.

Yummo Combo

Lunch I had some crunchy spicy sushi and a side of fresh mozzarella balls and sweet peppers.

Dinner was a healthy take on Zuppa Toscana.

SOO Good.

Post with recipe will come soon.

Ending the day with a glass of wine.

Ah.

Great day.

Until next time….keep eating pumpkin!!

Pumpkin….Pumpkin…Pumpkin

Good morning lovlies…

Another beautiful day here in New England.

Thankfully more like a fall day then winter like yesterday.

I have been testing and working on recipes and finally have tweaked one enough that I REALLY like.

Pumpkin

Again

I know.

I just cannot help myself.

I LOVE Pumpkin!

Maybe too much?

NO WAY

Never!!

Pumpkin Mini Protein Muffins

  • 1/2c Stevia in the raw

  • 1/4t Baking soda

  • 1t Baking powder

  • 1/2t sea salt

  • 1T Pumpkin Pie Spice

  • 1/4c plain greek yogurt

  • 1/2t vanilla extract

  • 1/2c Pumpkin puree

  • 4 egg whites

  • 1/2c skim milk

  1. Preheat oven to 325.

  2. Grease mini muffin tins or use liners(I always spray cupcake liners anyway so batter does not stick)

  3. Combine your dry ingredients in a large bowl.

  4. Combine your wet ingredients in another bowl.

  5. Combine wet  into dry ingredients and mix well.

  6. Drop into mini muffin tin using cookie scooper.

  7. Bake for about 25 minutes.

This makes 24 mini muffins

Each of these little bites of goodness are only 38 calories and have 5 g. protein!

I LOVE this calorie to protein ratio!!

I have made these a few times and we here in this house we LOVE them!!

We love them plain…

With diced apples in them…

With dark chocolate chips…

      Just a few notes.

I used Everlast VP in this, feel free to sub another protein blend I just cannot guarantee they will come out as good.

Let me know when you try this recipe.

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Until next time….Keep a baking!!
