Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins

I used to make pumpkin chocolate chip muffins all the time in the fall when I was a kid! They’re so moist and flavorful–and anything with chocolate chips 😋

I’ve also been wanting to experiment with vegan protein powder!

I’m not vegan, but I am a baking nerd & vegan protein powder acts completely differently from they whey/casein blends I normally use.

*Supposedly* you can substitute it for flour with a 1:1 ratio.

That’s not what I ended up doing for this recipe, but they did come out super moist and flavorful!

I used PE Science’s Vegan Cinnamon Delight. You can try using another vegan protein, but I would NOT recommend subbing out a non-vegan protein powder because they really do react completely differently in baking.

You’ll also note that these muffins, despite having vegan protein, are not fully vegan 😂

This was an experiment for me! And since I’m not vegan, in the egg whites went for extra protein!

I would also not recommend subbing out the vegetable oil. Guys… its ONE tablespoon. I already reduced the amount in the recipe by like 90%. Oil in particular helps add so much delicious moisture & each muffin is already under 100 calories with only 3g of fat. Just trust me ❤️
