On a cold day, a warm muffin and coffee for breakfast sounds divine…

I don’t crave baked goods for the most part, but a muffin that is gluten free and packs more protein than one egg really works for me!

These took some experimenting to get the nutritional numbers balanced the way I wanted while keeping the integrity of that bakery shop rival!

I have only used the ZEN FUZE protein powder in my muffin recipes so I can’t answer how they will turn out using a different brand, but would love to know if you have success using the brand of your choice!

I personally use the FUZE in other recipes and in my shakes and have found it to be a superior product so it’s become a staple in our house!

Enjoy…oh, a schmear of cream cheese is a realllllllyyyy nice addition!

Power ZEN Pumpkin Muffins - Gluten Free

Servings 24 regular size muffins
Author Liz Geeslin

Ingredients

Dry Mixture

  • 4 scoops ZEN Fuze Vanilla Bliss
  • 1 cup Namaste Gluten Free flour I found at Costco
  • 1/3 cup stevia
  • 3/4 cup hemp hearts available at Costco
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder

Wet Mixture

  • 1 15 oz can pumpkin puree not pie filling!
  • 1 cup liquid egg whites
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil I use MCT coconut oil, available at Costco too

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Measure and combine all of the dry ingredients into a small mixing bowl.
  • Measure and combine all of the wet ingredients into a medium size mixing bowl
  • Add the dry mix into the wet mixture and stir well to combine.
  • Lightly spray or oil the muffin cups you are using.
  • Portion evenly into 24 cupcake size or 48 mini size silicone muffin cups. I use a cookie batter scoop which works great!
  • Place the filled cups onto a baking rack on top of a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 25 min for cupcake size, 15 min for the mini size.
  • Cool and store in the fridge or freezer.

Notes

If you make the mini muffins, it will take two trays. I highly recommend the silicone baking cups or trays to avoid sticking.
I let them cool for a bit before popping them out of the cups.
I have only used the ZEN FUZE protein powder in my muffin recipes so I can't say how the recipe will work with another brand of protein powder.
If you are interested in purchasing the ZEN FUZE, this link will take you there!
If you do make them with another brand of protein powder, I would love to know how it worked!
