For some reason, I was just really itching for something pumpkin flavored yesterday. It also worked out that I had a can of pumpkin in the pantry, so I figured why not make some pumpkin peanut butter protein muffins?
Muffins are always one of my go to healthy snacks to bake. You can make them in so many variations and flavors, and of course they are also super easy to eat on the go.
For these muffins, obviously, I used pumpkin. I also added a good amount of peanut butter because I can never get enough peanut butter in my life. Seriously, if you can’t tell, I love it. I also added a scoop of Beast Sports vanilla protein powder to give them some enhanced flavor and a nice protein boost!
