3/4 cup liquid egg whites (or 6 egg whites)
1 cup yam, cooked and mashed
1/3 cup canned pumpkin (make sure it is 100% natural with no sugar added)
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup oat flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free)
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts or any nut!)
Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl mix together the first four ingredients. In a medium bowl stir together the remaining dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to combine.
Line muffin tin with 8 paper liners or spray with non-stick spray and divide the batter into 8 muffins. Bake for 25 minutes. Store in the fridge in an air tight container.
