Paleo Pumpkin Protein Muffins

I wake up early because I’m far more productive when I start my work day around 6 am.

But I’m definitely NOT a morning person.

My early morning work usually consists of writing training programs, doing paperwork, or blogging.  If I actually spoke with clients in the morning, this is how it would probably go…

Terrible, I know.  Seriously though, I need my morning coffee.  (The roastery advertised in the YouTube video above is actually one of my favourites.)

After I’ve had a few minutes to sip on my delicious mug of ‘wake-up-call’, I’m usually ready to eat.  I’m not necessarily ready to cook though.  More often than not, I go for something that only involves me heating it up, carrying it to my coffee, chewing, and swallowing.

That’s why I pre-make my breakfasts.

Some mornings all I feel like eating is a muffin…  or two…

I love these Paleo Pumpkin Protein Muffins because they provide a healthy dose of protein, fibre, and energy to fuel my morning.

They’re pretty tasty too.  You get a hint of savouriness from the pumpkin, sweetness from banana, and spice from the cinnamon.

The pumpkin keeps these muffins moist and tender, while the pecans give each bite a delicious crunch.

Most muffins rely on wheat flour, but since many of my clients are gluten or grain-free, I used arrowroot flour in this recipe.  The arrowroot flour also makes these muffins paleo friendly.

Warm them up and serve them alongside a gourmet cup of joe.
