  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup boiled, mashed butternut squash
  • 1/4 cup honey/maple syrup

  • 1/4 cup – 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • Added extras: frozen blueberries, chopped apple

Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius.

Mix together all dry ingredients, set aside. Whisk together all wet ingredients, not including the butternut. Add the wet mixture to the dry, and then add the squash. Make sure everything is mixed thoroughly, but don’t don’t over do it. If you want to add in extras such as frozen blueberries or chopped apple, do so now. Fold in carefully before spooning the mixture evenly into a prepared muffin tin. Before baking top with crushed walnuts and a sprinkling of coconut sugar. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean and the muffins are golden and crisp on top. Served best with coffee before beginning the day.
