Pumpkin-Vanilla Protein Muffins

I recently discovered that my Hardcore fitness could finally eat my baked goods and not feel guilty.

For a friends recent Birthday and Going Away gift I made her Pumpkin-Vanilla Protein Muffins.
I couldn’t get over how tender and light they came out.  I thought for sure they would be dry and flavorless.
There are many amazing healthy recipes out there , some get complicated with many ingredients others omit so may ingredients they are boring.
I wanted the flavor to be there and the health. 
Try these out!

    4. Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg, and add to the batter. Then mix in the milk. Combine the molasses and baking soda and mix into the batter. To help prevent the raisins and pecans from sinking, dust them with flour, shaking off excess. Mix them, along with the bourbon, into the batter until combined. Transfer to the loaf pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes up clean, 1 3/4 to 2 hours.
