Chocolate Pumpkin Power Muffins

I think the name kinda says it all.


¼ cup butter, softened

½ cup plain sour cream

2/3 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 ½ tsp vanilla

1 cup canned pumpkin

¾ cup white whole wheat flour

1/3 cup all purpose flour

¼ cup protein powder

2/3 cup dark cocoa powder (regular cocoa power is fine as well)

1 tsp baking soda

3 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

¾ cup milk

1 cup chocolate chips and/or walnuts


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine butter, sour cream, sugar, eggs, vanilla and pumpkin in a bowl and mix well to combine. In a separate bowl, mix together flours, protein powder, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Combine wet and dry ingredients, add in milk and stir until well combined. Scoop into a muffin pan that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray.

Place muffins in the oven and immediately reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until tops spring back when touched. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
