These protein pumpkin 🍁spice muffins are easy to make and will definitely satisfy your morning pumpkin spice craving without a trip to Starbucks 😉
Pumpkin is a rich source of beta carotene, a potent antioxidant that helps with immune function, vision, and skin health!
I used coconut sugar to impart added sweetness and nutrition since it contains iron, zinc, calcium, and potassium, along with polyphenols and antioxidants. But use any sweetener you’d like! 🥰
Adding protein powder to this recipe🥣 is crucial for promoting feelings of fullness so you can focus on being the boss 👩💼you are and not hunger pangs 👏
Enjoy these with your morning coffee ☕️ and let me know what you think in the comments 👇
