404 Banana Pumpkin Pie Muffins

Banana Pumpkin Pie Muffins

Here at PN we like to make things realistic and practical for people. I am currently doing the 21 day cleanse and to be honest it is pretty hard. Doing the  21 day purification isn’t about not having a treat for 21 days (that just wouldn’t be realistic for me!)… plus it’s fall and I LOVE pumpkin. Needing to come up with “cleanse friendly” treats led me to developing a cleanse friendly pumpkin muffin! (to learn more about the 21 day purification program I am talking about, click here!)

Recipe Type: Treat
Author: Amanda
Serves: 10
Ingredients
  • Dry:
  • 1 cup of gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 T cinnamon
  • 1 T pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 scoops Whey Pro Complete or unflavored whey (60g)
  • 1/4 tsp stevia extract
  • Wet:
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 4 large organic eggs
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut or almond milk
  • 3 T red palm oil or coconut oil
  • 3 T organic almond butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place bananas in food processor or blender and blend almond or coconut milk until smooth.
  3. Add the rest of the wet ingredients to the blender/food processor and blend until smooth.
  4. Combine all of your dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix.
  5. Add wet ingredient mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix with a whisk until evenly incorporated.
  6. Grab a paper towel and put some solid coconut oil or palm oil on it then coat a muffin tin with oil so the muffins do not stick.
  7. Fill each muffin tin 3/4 of the way.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Notes
*If you do not have almond flour or want to leave out nuts you can use 1/2 cup of coconut flour and add an extra egg (so use 5 instead of 4), and leave out the almond butter or replace it with sunflower seed butter. I wouldn’t replace with peanut butter because of its distinct flavor. [br][br]For those of you following a PN prescription:[br]Serving size: 2 muffins (2 Fats, .5 Pro, .5 Carbohydrate)
