Protein Power Muffins

20190623_094839.jpgGrain-free, dairy-free and free from refined sugar, these morning muffins are high in protein and give a decent amount a healthy fat.  I make these for myself with no sweetener added at all, and often enjoy them with nut butter.

Pumpkin, squash, or sweet potato puree adds fiber and makes for a soft muffin.  Also, these vegetables are all high in vitamin A.


Coconut butter adds a dose a healthy fat.


I use coconut flour, which is high in healthy fat as well. Garbanzo bean flour adds a protein punch and improves texture.


If I do add sweetener, I generally use maple syrup or coconut sugar.


Simple, delicious and good for you.  Most muffin recipes add enough sugar to quality as cupcakes.  Give these a try and make changes to the recipe until it suits you!
