Rest Days & Paleo Pumpkin Muffins (97 calories // 3 g carbs)

 

Yesterday and even Sunday I had great plans, but they were thwarted by my own tiredness (possible laziness?). I am knitting my sister-in-law a blanket and I am obsessed with re-watching Vampire Diaries Season #3 (don’t judge!), so I spent most of my free time Sunday on the couch doing that, and Monday after work I repeated it until Tennis lessons (and repeated after tennis lessons). YAY for two lazy rest days. Now, today, I am back to hard work (exercise wise — 5-6 mi on the plan for tonight, followed by lifting with the hubby) and (unfortunately) baking wise as well.

Yes, in a Halloween Wrapper!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 packets Stevia in the Raw (or some other sweetener)
  • 15 oz pumpkin
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter, honey, vanilla extract, and sweetener together in a bowl. Add in eggs 1 at a time.
  2. Beat in pumpkin. Add coconut flour and spices.
  3. Pour into muffin tins with or without liners, just make sure to spray them with cooking spray so they do not stick!
  4. Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. These muffins will turn out egg-like. They are moist and sort of spongy, but still good!
