As the leaves change colour and the air becomes crisper, it's time to embrace all things pumpkin! While pumpkin-spice lattes and pies may be the first things that come to mind, there's a healthier and more protein-packed way to satisfy your autumn cravings – high-protein pumpkin muffins! Not only are these muffins a delicious treat, but they also come with the added benefit of being rich in protein, which is important for supporting muscle mass, tissue repair, and a healthy immune system. In addition, pumpkin is a good source of dietary fiber, which aids in digestion, blood sugar regulation, and helps you feel full and satisfied.
