healthy vegan pumpkin protein muffins

Dry ingredients:

1 cup spelt flour (we used BROWN RICE flour)
1/3 cup coconut flour (of any other gluten-free flour you might have)
2 scoops of Prairie Naturals Organic Sprouted Ancient Grains Protein in Vanilla Creme
1/4 cup sucanat or cane sugar or 2 Tbsp maple syrup (add more if you like sweeter muffins as with this amt., they are not very sweet whatsoever….which we prefer)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Wet ingredients:

2 medium very ripe banana, mashed well
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or other non-dairy milk
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
– Mix all dry ingredients in big bowl.
– Mix all wet ingredients in another bowl.
– Slowly incorporate dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just mixed (do NOT over-mix! Doing so will make your muffins “tough”/rubbery)
– In a lined muffin tin or muffin tin sprayed with nonstick spray, spoon batter into each cup until about 2/3 full.
– Can garnish with pumpkin seeds on top, then pop in the oven.
– Bake for 18-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of a muffin comes out clean.
– Let muffins cool once done and ENJOY!

Note: if you want to save some for later (which would require massive Will Power), you can freeze some in a Ziploc bag and they’ll stay good for weeks 🙂

    Spelt flour might be vegan but it sure IS NOT gluten free! Spelt is derived from a type of wheat!


      BAZINGA!! Good eye!! We often will use Kamut flour for this one as we wrote in the post, as its often easier on the tummy than other non gluten free wheats. We subbed rice flour for this batch though to make sure they were gluten free!! We’ve made the correction and thanks for keeping us on track Mo! UMJ 🙂

        Thank you for fixing it. Not everyone has gluten free truly figured out, so I wouldn’t want someone new to it getting the wrong info.
