Woooo pumpkin + cranberry is my new favorite thingggg since that oatmeal yesterday!
Current goal: understanding how to bake with plant-based protein powders. So first I’m focusing on rice protein. Today I made some cranberry stuffed pumpkin muffins. Kinda sorta really love this texture!!
Cranberry Stuffed Pumpkin Muffins
Makes: 8 muffins
- 1 cup canned pumpkin purée
- 1 cup baking stevia
- 1 cup ground flax meal
- 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
- 2 scoops brown rice protein (30 g total)
- 3 TBSP unsweetened applesauce
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup organic whole cranberry sauce
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Mix everything except for the cranberry sauce (should be thick, but if TOO thick, add a wee little water). Spray a cupcake pan with nonstick spray and divide the batter between 8 cupcake molds. Create a crater inside the middle of each muffin, and add 1/2 tbsp of the cranberry sauce into the crater of each muffin. Bake at 375 F for 16-20 mins.
