I know, I know. It isn’t October. What am I doing making recipes with pumpkin? Good question. The answer is: because it is amazing. Not only do I love the warm flavors that pumpkin brings, but it also helps make protein baked goods super moist without the need for lots of butter or oil. And, these pumpkin chocolate chip protein muffins were moist, delicious, and basically one of my favorite muffins ever.
Protein powder recipes in baking, when not done correctly, can really dry out very quick. Not only does the pumpkin help keep these super moist, but the use of casein protein gives them a very dense and moist texture as well. I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand a dry muffin….
