Stir It Up's Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

Stir It Up’s Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

Here’s a fantastic snack recipe from Landria Voigt, of Stir It Up! She says:

“Since it is finally fall, I wanted to bake something with pumpkin but I also wanted to make something that had lots of protein. These Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins were perfect! Not only are they high in protein, fiber, and healthy fat, but they are also low glycemic so you won’t have crazy blood sugar swings and your energy will be steady. They’re kind of the perfect snack, breakfast, you name it! The also make for a great pre-workout snack, since the oil from the coconut is burned immediately as energy!”

 

Stir It Up’s Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins Recipe

Ingredients:

3/4 cup coconut flour
3/4 cup coconut palm sugar
2 tsp pumpkin spice
2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
9 organic eggs (room temperature)
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
2 Tbsp coconut milk
1 cup dark chocolate chips, if desired
Note: Before you begin, make sure you leave your eggs out so they can warm to room temperature or close to it. Otherwise the cold eggs won’t mix well with the melted coconut oil.

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350.

Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl.

Mix the wet ingredients in a small to medium bowl.

Now mix all (but the chocolate) ingredients together until blended well.

Fold in the dark chocolate chips if you’d like. I did half with and half without.

Now fill your silicone muffins cups (best baking investment ever) or paper muffin cups 2/3 of the way full.

Cook for 25 or so minutes (until butter knife comes out clean) and eat while the chocolate is still melting!

Makes about 18 muffins.
