I modified this recipe that I found on my Weight Watchers recipe section. Started off making them for Layla and realized these would be awesome pre-workout snacks to start the morning. They are a bit higher in carbs and protein than I typically recommend, but since it will be utilized as pre-workout, it will be a great way to start the morning with a boost of energy. You can also use these as a healthy dessert.
Nothing says fall like the spice trinity of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. My house smells like Thanksgiving after cooking these!
- 1 cup ground oatmeal
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground nutmeg
- 2/3c unsweetened applesauce
- 3/4c canned unsweetened pumpkin
- 1/3c cooked carrot puree
- 2/3c stevia
- 1 egg
- 2/3c unsweetened coconut milk
First make sure you have cooked carrots that you pureed in the blender. I always have some handy to sneak into my daughter’s food since she doesnt like to eat veggies
Preheat oven to 450 and coat a 12 hole muffin tin with cooking spray and line with cupcake wrappers if you like.
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl. Then combine applesauce, pumpkin, stevia, egg, and milk in a medium bowl. Mix thoroughly. Add both sets of ingredients and mix until completely incorporated.
Pour batter into muffin tins so each hole is about 2/3 full. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. 1 muffin per serving.
