Pumpkin Protein Muffins

1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup plain lowfat Greek yogurt
1 egg + 1 egg white
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 Tbsp oil 
1 ¾ cup old fashioned oats, ground fine
1/4  cup protein powder of your choice (I use vanilla)
1/2 cup Stevia
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie or apple pie spice

Since protein powder is sweet, you may choose to reduce the amount of brown sugar to 1/4 cup and Stevia to 6 packets. Optional add-ins: chopped walnuts or pecans, raisins or dried cranberries.

Directions: Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with liners. Combine dry ingredients, including protein poweder. Mix wet ingredients and sugars together. Combine and then blend in oats. Divide mixture evenly into muffin cups and place into pre-heated oven. Bake for 15-20 mins or until tops are golden. Place on a rack to cool.
