Easy (and Healthier) Pumpkin Muffins

It’s that time of year when we like a little treat and everything is pumpkin flavored again!

So I thought I would share a recipe that I’ve been making about every other week lately. It’s a good protein snack, filling and organic. It’s another one of those things that I can have for breakfast or dinner with my green smoothie and be totally satisfied…..okay, maybe I want two instead of just one, lol, but that’s because they’re so good! 😉

If you try them let me know what you think!

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 6 pieces Dave’s Killer Bread White Bread Done Right
  • 3 eggs, large
  • ⅓ cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 tablespoons almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • optional: mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. First preheat oven to 350ºF. Then, line a muffin tin with cupcake liners and spray them with coconut oil cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a medium size bowl, whisk together eggs, pumpkin puree, almond milk, pumpkin pie spice, and maple syrup.
  3. Create cubes of bread by first slicing off the crust. Then, slice or tear into little squares.
  4. Dip bread into egg mixture making sure everything is coated well.
  5. Fill each muffin tin with cubed bread. Optional: sprinkle on some mini chocolate chips.
  6. Bake at 350º for 21-23 minutes.

 

Notes:

*You can probably try this with other organic bread varieties, I typically eat wheat free/sprouted grain breads but I made the exception for these muffins.

*If you’re vegan or don’t want to use eggs for some other reason, you can use flax or chia “egg” instead.

*You can also add chopped walnuts along with the chocolate chips, I did this for a pan and it was even more filling!
