I Minute Pumpkin Protein Muffin w/Cream Cheese Filling

I put 1 TSP of cream cheese in the middle of a split muffin and OMG, it tastes like a regular pumpkin muffin/bread with cream cheese filling! I found this muffin tastes even better the second day cold right out of the fridge! Moist, muffin texture, and very "fall" tasting! The cream cheese adds only 17 calories and 1.65g fat for the full fat cream cheese (for those of us watching our calories)! And will you look at the protein in this muffin!!

THANKS OUIZOID FOR THE ORIGINAL IDEA!!

1 Minute Pumpkin Protein Muffin:

1/2 Scoop Unflavored Protein Powder (or any flavor you have)
2 TBS Beaten Egg (save the other 2 TBS for another 1 MM, or double recipe and use the whole egg, making 2 muffins.)
2 TBS Golden Flax Meal
1/2 TSP Baking Powder
2 TBS Pumpkin Puree
1 TSP Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 TSP Cinnamin
1 TBS DaVincis Praline SF Syrup (will add another TBS or so of powder/granular sweetener next time) Or 2 TBS sweetener of choice, granular or overwise
1 TSP Vanilla

Mix all together in a coffee mug or bowl and microwave on high until it looks "dry" on top, about 2 to 3 minutes depending on your microwave.

Hi beep

I keep seeing all these recipes for pumpkin flavored muffins, etc. I really like pumpkin things BUT.... What do you do with a can of pumpkin once you open it? Do you use it daily until it's gone? or freeze? or does it keep forever in the fridge?

You can freeze it. Best to put dollops of it on a baking sheet (or whatever you can cram into the freezer while they freeze, if yours is as full as mine) and then, when frozen solidly, transfer to a freezer ziplock bag. Then you can take out the serving size you need, say for one muffin, and not disturb the rest of them.

Another trick is to buy the frozen block of "cooked squash" which is butternut squash or something like that. just hack off a chunk and defrost it in the microwave for your muffin and leave the rest in a ziplock bag. That squash is pretty much identical with pumpkin.

GREAT idea!! Thanks. Butternut I can get cheap. The spices make it pumpkin...DUH!

My freezer is just about empty. Ready for another 1/2 beef.

I posted 2 TBS of pumpkin pie spice and this is incorrect.

It should read:

2 Teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

Sorry :blush:

These muffins are the BEST taken right from the fridge. I don't even heat them up, just cream cheesed and served!

YUMMY!!!

Do you typically eat the whole muffin or just half? I was cautious and just ate 1/2 since I'm new to flax. TIA

I eat the whole muffin, but I don't have a problem with flax at all. Work your way up if you are concerned.

Hope you enjoyed it!!

Thanks for the info. It had great potential -- I'll try nuking it for a little less time and maybe a bit of cream cheese.

Sorry for being possibly obtuse, but how much is a "scoop"? Thanks

Make a batch?

I have a question regarding this muffin, as well as the ubiquitous "One minute muffin".
I would like to make a BATCH of these - 12 muffins. Does anyone have the breakdown of the amounts needed?
Also, if you live in an area where you can get canned pumpkin in September, consider yourself blessed! Our local markets do not carry it until late October, at the earliest. However, as soon as I can get my hands on a can of pumpkin, I intend to try this!

Thanks!
Linda

I made a tripe batch this morning and it worked for about 8 normal/regular sized muffins-I made 6 and a large one so about 8 regular ones. Also, I baked it in my oven as I prefer baked rather than nuked. I did cut the spices as for a tripe batch and mine were good and I'll have one each morning with cc and coffee. I buy cans during/after holidays so I'll have plenty thru-out the year altho I have never not been able to find this product. Anne

Dear Wishin,
As I said in my post: "if you live in an area where you can get canned pumpkin in September, consider yourself blessed! Our local markets do not carry it until late October, at the earliest." This is usually a seasonal item. Specialty stores like Trader Joe's MIGHT have it, I'm not sure. But I think you would pay more than you need to.

SKG, it seems to me that caramel Davinci's would work, as would vanilla. What flavors do you have?

I've always used French Vanilla in these as that is all I've been able to find locally and I think the taste was great with it. I love these muffins!!!

Carmel would be great or any other one that gives you that "pumpkin spice" taste. I used the Praline for that reason, but I'm sure anything you use will do great!

I love the poster that baked these! My next batch will be baked now that the weather is cooler! Thanks for the idea!!

This sounds wonderful. Will try it tonight.

Regarding the canned pumpkin shortage. My daughter called me and asked if I could get her some pumpkin. Said she can't find it in her local stores (California) and the managers of the stores told her there is shortage on pumpkin.

My husband could not fiind the pumpkin at any of the local chain stores (Albertsons, Kroger, Walmart, etc.), but he did find it at a small specialty international store. They were loaded on the shelf with the brand and size (15 oz. can) which I prefer and the price was about 15˘ per can (over the regular price). So we sent her 10 cans. He also bought me 6 more cans to add to my stock pile.

So check on the smaller stores.

Nikki
