It’s that time of year again, pumpkin everything!  pumpkin-protein-muffins_01Personally this is my favorite time of year, it’s starting to get cool out, football season is back, and we get to cook with an extremely nutritious fruit (pumpkins are actually a type of winter squash).  Pumpkin is high in vitamin A, packs a healthy dose of vitamin C, and is fairly low carb, 1 cup only contains 8 grams of carbs.  With the following recipe we take the flavor of pumpkin pie and remove the sugar and bump up the protein content for a snack that’s prefect before you head off to the gym.
