Happy Fall! Ahh. The crisp air, leaves turning over to hot pink and shades of orange, a warmth in the hearts of people, boots and hats, pumpkin and all the beautiful things that come with the season. There’s something so magical about this time of transition.
Enter these bad boy pumpkin protein muffins.
Packed with protein (10 grams per muffin) and gluten free, these muffins give you the perfect Fall muffin flavor with a balanced hit of sweetness to satisfy a sweet tooth.
The perfect Fall morning muffin.
Take them with you on-the-go, on a road trip or eat as a pre or post workout quick bite. And if you get a sweet tooth and are watching your calories, add a dollop of cool whip on top, a shake of nutmeg and you’re golden!
Pumpkin is loaded with vitamins and minerals, is anti-inflammatory and helps alkalize the bodies pH levels.

My review of the Pumpkin Protein Muffins
I love them because they’re light and not too sweet. They have the perfect hint of sweetness and are a healthier option for me to eat over a super sweet pumpkin bar or piece of pumpkin pie. I can bring these to Thanksgiving, take them on the go with me or eat for a morning snack and it makes me feel all the Fall feels and rock my health at the same time!
