Diana from Biscotti Diana and I created this very yummy and nutritious recipe that delivers 5g of fibre and 15g of protein per muffin!
(Makes 10 muffins)
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup oat flour
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup unsweetened apple puree
1/2 cup isolate whey protein powder
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp powdered clove
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp grated ginger
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/8 cup maple syrup
Mix eggs with the pumpkin puree on medium low speed.
Add the pure vanilla extract, maple syrup, apple sauce and freshly grated ginger to the pumpkin mixture and mix until well combined.
In a separate bowl combine the oat flour and almond flour and whisk to combine. Add baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices to the dry mixture and whisk to combine. Then add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and mix until well combined.
Peel and core one apple and grate it. Fold the grated apple into the mixture.
In a small bowl prepare the topping and mix chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, oats and maple.
Line a muffin pan with parchment cups or use silicone muffin molds.
Pour batter into the parchment lined muffin cups on a pan.
Spoon the topping seed mixture over each muffin.
Bake for 22 to 25 mins at 350 degrees Celcius. Enjoy!
