So you can enjoy all the foods you love, and still feel your best. Because when you feel good, you’re empowered to show up as your best self, and have a more positive impact on those around you and the world as a result.
So, coming full circle here, these paleo pumpkin muffins are a prime example of what happens when you focus on adding in more healthy ingredients, rather than restricting or cutting out certain foods.
Instead of not partaking in delicious fall baked goods (which let’s be honest, are one of the best parts of this season) I took these muffins to the next nutrient-dense level by loading them with hidden veggies (hi, pumpkin) and coconut flour for plenty of gut-healthy fiber, Bulletproof collagen powder to assist in healing and sealing your digestive tract, and nut-butter rich in protein and healthy fats to help stabilize your blood sugar and keep energy levels in check.
They’re satisfying, slightly sweet (without being TOO sweet), soft, moist and will make your home smell like the most delicious pumpkin spice candle ever. I like to add in dark chocolate chips for a little extra richness and health benefits (dark chocolate is full of anxiety-reducing magnesium).
Lastly, they’re free of common inflammatory ingredients/allergies such as gluten, grains and dairy, so almost anyone can enjoy them! If you need to accommodate for an egg allergy or vegan, simply sub each egg for 1 tbsp ground flaxseed combined with 2. 5 tbsp warm water (so 3 eggs = 3 tbsp ground flaxseed + 7.5 tbsp warm water).
These paleo pumpkin muffins are *nutrient-dense next level* — loaded with hidden veggies for plenty of gut-healthy fiber, Bulletproof collagen powder to aid in digestion and nut-butter rich in protein and healthy fats to help stabilize your blood sugar and keep energy levels in check.
