Pumpkin Cacao Muffins



I usually make one or two sweeter things for snacks during the week, to keep my meals fun for the day. These are a really easy, tasty snack which is protein packed and has some sneaky veggies in it (perfect for kids or just getting an extra serve in for the day).

Serve warmed with some yoghurt or as is, delicious.


300 grams mashed pumpkin

1 scoop of Protein Powder (I used the cacao from harvest industries)

0.25 cup of coconut oil (melted)

2 eggs

1 cup coconut flour

3 tbsp maple syrup

20 g cacao powder (or cocoa)


In a large mixing bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients together first, then add the wet ingredients.  Mix until at a smooth consistency.  Add to a lined (with oil or butter) muffin tin (it makes about 9 -10 muffins) and into the oven at 180 degree celsius for approximately 20 minutes.
