Sunday routines and Pumpkin protein muffins

Sunday is by far my favorite day of the week.
I feel like I can get so many thing accomplished in one day and still have time for relaxtion.
A typical Sunday for me goes like this:
8 am Uppercut (30 minute weight class)
830-930 Kickboxing
11 am food shopping
1 lunch
3 Nap
430/5 Cocktail Hour and prep dinner
530 Start cooking Sunday dinner


In between all of that I am tackling endless amount of laundry, bathing the puppies, running various errands, watching football/food channel etc.
It is my feel good day!


Today I woke up and did my 2 gym classes then went straight to Starbucks where I discovered a new LOVE.
Grande Pike coffee with Pumpkin Spice syrup, I add a little 1/2&1/2, half an equal then some cinnamon and nutmeg.
Let me tell you it is D-LISH.

I paired it with the perfect post workout/breakfast fuel 
Damy Health's Pumpkin Protein Muffins.

Pumpkin Pie Protein Muffins

(made in muffin tins)
Ingredients:
  • 1 Cup Oat Flour *see notes below
  • 2 Scoops Natural Protein Powder (plain whey works great)
  • 1 Cup Plain Pureed Pumpkin
  • 2 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • ¼ Cup Baking Stevia or 6 Packets Stevia
  • ½ Tsp Baking Soda
  • ¼ Tsp Sea Salt
  • 5 Egg Whites
  • ½ Cup Water
  • 1/3 Cup Plain Non Fat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
Oat Flour Directions - To make oat flour simply take dry oatmeal and blend it until it is flour consistency.
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together. Then mix in all wet ingredients. Stir until smooth and blended.
  3. Lightly spray muffin tin with oil (extra virgin olive oil).
  4. Place batter evenly in muffin tins.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes (check them at the 20 minute mark and keep an eye on them for the last 10 minutes).
  6. Remove from the oven, gently remove them from the tin and place on a cooling rack. These are very moist and fragile until they cool.
  7. Once they cool they are firm and yummy! Place in a sealed container.
Notes:
*Makes 12 protein bars/muffins.
**Serving size for women is 2 (4 for men).
***DAMY Members can have 2 for meal 2 or 4.
