Easy Pumpkin Spice Protein Muffins

Easy Pumpkin Protein Muffins It’s official I am addicted to pumpkin right now!  Pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin spice latte’s, pumpkin chex mix and these delicious and super simple muffins.  My kids think I am going crazy.  They keep saying “enough of the pumpkin stuff.”  Sorry kids! 

What makes these super easy to make is using the Kodiak Cakes flapjack and waffle mix.  This is my go-to for pancakes and waffles.  It is hands down the best mix. It has protein so it is super filling.  I get mine at Costco since we go through it so much.  They have a variety of different flavors but I usually stick with the regular and add my own spin on it.  

I made these the other day and they did not last long in my house.  You can freeze them and pull one out when needed.  

Give these a try.  They are a healthy after school snack or little treat after dinner!  I get most of my ingredients at Thrive Market.  I love the pumpkin puree they have and the raw nuts.

Notes
  1. You can use honey or another liquid sweetener of choice. You could also try liquid stevia as part of the sweetener for a lower sugar option. I spray my muffin tins with a coconut oil spray.
  2. I used raisins for this batch but semi sweet mini chocolate chips is delicious as well.
