Busy day today so this post won’t be as long-winded and rambling as most of mine. You’re welcome :). Needed something tasty and healthy for breakfast this morning before heading out to do yard cardio. This works. Pumpkin muffins. Nailed it:)

Hobbit's Pumpkin Muffins

  • Servings: 6
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

  • 1/4 cup Coconut Flour
  • 0.5 Scoops (33g) vanilla whey protein powder (we use Dymatize Elite, YMMV)
  • 1 Cup, Baked Kabocha Squash (don’t know about kabocha? hit the link!)
  • 0.5 cup granulated stevia
  • 0.25 cup Almond Milk
  • 2 tbsp Butter, melted
  • 3.00 large, Eggs
  • 1.00 tsp(s), Vanilla extract
  • ** 1.00 tsp(s), Spices – Cinnamon, ground
  • 1.5 tsp(s), Baking Powder
  • 0.50 tsp(s), Salt, table
  • ** 0.50 tsp(s), Spices, ginger, ground
  • ** 0.25 tsp(s), Spices, cloves, ground

** You can replace the ginger, cinnamon, and cloves with 2 tsp of pumpkin spice

Preheat your oven to 350F. Get out a muffin pan and lightly grease all with coconut oil (I use the spray type because not only do I like simple, I’m freaking lazy too).

Combine all the wet ingredients (including the kabocha) for the in a bowl, beat until smooth. Put all the dry ingredients in a different bowl, then whisk to combine\break up clumps. Add the dry to the wet, and beat until smooth, scraping down the sides. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup or large soup spoon, drop the batter into your muffin tin and fill each one to just below the top.

  2. These look awesome!!! Totally making them this week…and I have everything except kabocha which is super plentiful here this time of year. Love baking with it 🙂

    1. I had never even heard of kabocha until this year when I bought it by accident and decided to look into what the hell it was I just bought that wasn’t a buttercup :). Now I’m a huge fan. Hope they come out well for you, I just finished making another batch :). Thanks for stopping by and please, let me know how yours turn out!

      1. Oh ya kabocha is awesome…I’ve made pudding with it!! I made these muffins last night…buuuuuut…I got a little lazy/impatient and instead of running to the store, then cooking the kabocha, I subbed with pumpkin puree and it turned out awesome! I added a few pumpkin seeds on top too. These will make awesome snacks for the week. Thanks!

  3. These were so yummy! Even my picky 3 year old enjoyed them, slathered with grass fed butter! I mixed my batter in the vitamix & it came out well. Was your nutritional info based on 6 muffins? I used a 12 muffin pan.
    Thx for the great recipe!

    1. Thanks for the feedback! Glad they came out. Yes, those numbers are for 6 muffins, my pans are a little bigger than the standard.
