Protein Muffin Recipe

People have been asking for my protein muffin recipe so here it is:

Basic Recipe
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup protein powder (any flavor - chocolate & vanilla work well or something that goes with the type of muffin you are making such as banana for the banana nut version)
1/3 cup sugar or sugar substitute
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix, pure pumpkin)

Banana Nut:
2 mashed bananas
1/2 cup nuts (I generally use pecans and sometimes put in more than 1/2 cup)

1/2 cup frozen or fresh blueberries

Pumpkin Raisin:
1/2 cup more pumpkin
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup raisins

Pre-heat oven to 400 F

In large mixing bowl, mix dry ingredients. Make sure protein powder is mixed thoroughly. Add in wet ingredients and sitr until the mixture is completely moistened. Batter may be lumpy.

Grease muffin cups or line with paper baking cups.

Fill full sized muffin cups to 2/3, for mini-muffin cups, fill to top

Bake until a toothpick comes out clean. Around 20-25 min. for full sized muffins, 8-12 min. for mini-muffins

Makes 10-12 full sized muffins or 30-36 mini-muffins
