Mini Protein Pumpkin Muffins

Who doesn’t love pumpkin muffins.  They are delicious! But, let’s face it, though a lot of people claim that they are “healthy”, and they are when you just have one, I can’t stop at just one.  Guilty as charged!  So,  the traditional flour and sugar pumpkin muffins are just not a great match for me.  But do you know what is??  Protein Pumpkin Muffins!  This recipe makes a bakers dozen of mini pumpkin muffins (probably more if i hadn’t snacked on the batter while making them)  for 7F 37C 32P!  Those macros are for the entire recipe!  And if you add some yummy toppings, you can make these into a healthy halloween treat!
