Pumpkin Egg Muffins

I'm really starting to get sick of my turkey diet, so, thus inspired by a couple of my online friends (Becca and Genie), I decided to try a new recipe that I can actually have in my diet! This was a huge step for me, as I'm not well known for my cooking or baking skills. But much to my surprise, these actually turned out AND tasted good!

Pumpkin Egg Muffins

Ingredients
4 egg whites
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp pumpkin spice
1/8 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp Splenda (or Stevia)
1/4 tsp almond extract (or vanilla or coconut)

Method
Combine all ingredients into small bowl and whisk together until well blended (there may be some clumps - I couldn't get them all out, but it doesn't matter cuz they still tasted good!)

Spray large muffin tin.

Dump ingredients into 1 muffin hole in the pan.


Bake at 350 for 30 min  or until the muffin is solid.

Remove from pan, spray with no-fat butter, and sprinkle more Splenda and cinnamon on top for extra flavor. Viola!


Since my diet only calls for meals of 4 egg whites, I mixed up 3 separate batches of these to make 3 muffins.


These are making me hungry just lookin' at them! YUM!!

I sprinkle more Splenda and cinnamon on the plate when I eat these, and also spray each piece with no-fat butter. They taste best when warm, naturally. :)

Enjoy!!

  2. I CANNOT WAIT to make these. Oh and btw, your hand writing looks EXACTLY like mine. When I saw that bag that said Splenda, I had to do a double take! Thanks for the shout out! :)
