So a little while back we posted a protein-rich pumpkin spice latte recipe for fall… why not go all-out and add a healthy protein-packed pumpkin muffin?
As with Heidi’s latte recipe, this is a much healthier variant of a coffee shop favorite that trades protein for a lot of the empty carbs you’d get with a standard muffin.
All thanks to the power of premium Magnum QUATTRO Protein Powder.
The recipe is below, but you can also click the image to the right to see Magnum’s full-size image. After that, we discuss some alternatives to honey.
This protein powder recipe calls for honey and a little maple syrup as your sweeteners, both of which are better choices than the standard refined sugar or high fructose corn syrup you’ll find in regular muffins.
Other honey alternatives
If you want to get even crazier, we’ve noticed that VitaFiber can also substitute liquid sweeteners like honey. It’s almost as sweet, and provides fiber instead of straight sugar.
But when you look at the carb content here, most of it’s really already coming from fiber-high pumpkin puree, not the honey anyway. So it may not be worth losing some of that extra sweetness over.
