Ingredients

Optional toppings:

  • White chocolate (melted)
  • Pumpkin seeds

Method

  1. First, preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Then in a bowl add the eggs, oil, maple syrup, milk, and protein powder. Beat the ingredients until smooth.
  3. Add the pumpkin puree and mix again until thoroughly combined.
  4. Finally, add the flour and baking powder and mix until you have a smooth batter.
  5. Transfer the mix into a muffin tray that’s either pre-lined with a little cooking spray or muffin cases so that they don’t stick. You should get 12 evenly sized muffins from the mixture.
  6. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Flo recommends covering with tin foil and removing for the last 5 minutes of cooking to make sure they don’t burn on top.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Then drizzle with melted white chocolate and sprinkle with pumpkin seeds for the perfect finishing touch.
