Moist Pumpkin Protein Muffins

Here's the Dish

These pumpkin muffins have a few healthy twists like oats, pumpkin, and yogurt, making them a healthy fall treat. These muffins are moist and packed with pumpkin flavor, with the perfect amount of spice! They are so delicious that I can guarantee that no one will ever know that they are loaded with protein and healthy carbs, and that they are low in sugar! With this winning combination of flavor and nutrition, they are sure to be a hit this fall season!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 25-30 minutes.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil cupcake liners, or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.


In a blender, (or food processor), mix all of the ingredients together. Blend until oats are ground and mixture is smooth. ( I usually help move mixture around in my blender carefully with a spoon!)


Divide mixture among muffins tins, and place into pre-heated oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until tops are lightly golden brown.

*Note this batter is very moist, and a toothpick may not come out clean…Don’t worry it is baked through if the tops are golden brown! 


Cool muffins before removing from pan. ENJOY!!!


1 cupCanned pumpkin
1/2 cup Applesauce
1/2 cup Plain lowfat Greek yogurt
3Egg whites
1 3/4 cupOld Fashioned Oats
1/4 cupProtein powder
1/2 cup Baking stevia OR 1 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar 1
1 tspBaking soda
2 tspBaking powder
1/4 tspSalt
1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Pumpkin pie OR Apple pie spice
OptionalAdd-Ins: 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts, pecans, or almonds, mini chocolate chips, raisins or dried cranberries!

1 I used NuNaturals More Fiber Stevia Baking Blend. If using packets of stevia, I recommend using about 8-12, or adjust according to taste.

Katie's Tip!

This batter is very moist, and a toothpick may not come out clean…Don’t worry it is baked through if the tops are golden brown!

Wow this looks great Katie!! A quick question for you though.. you’ve indicated 2 cups of splenda or 1 tablespoons of stevia… I’ve read that in a lot of recipes, the larger volume of sugar (in this case, the 2 cups of Splenda) is needed in order to achieve the right consistency. Did you find that the batter made with the Stevia version was a little more runny?

Looks like a great recipe! I was wondering if quick cook steel cook oats or just quick cook oats would work instead of the old fashioned oats. I have both but not the old fashioned oats. Just wondering so I don’t have to go out and buy new ones if they work. Thanks :)

Hey Katie! I’ve made a few of your receipes ( the Pumkin Triffle, the zucchinizza, the coconut cake) and Me and my family love them!!!!! They are super easy to follow, innovative and yum to the max!! It is also fantastic that they are low calorie. When you get your cookbook deal I plan on picking up a copy for sure!!! The only thing I think may need improvement is the nutrional breakdown. I’m not sure if there is a way to also calculate the fiber and fat in addition to the calories of your receipes, as this plays a part in the overall health. Other than that thank you so much for taking the time to share your skills and passion. and God bless!

I tried baking your pumpkin bread but didn’t have any luck. Not really sure what I did wrong. I followed your instructions to a T but my bread never really set. It was too wet, even after being in the oven for over an hour. I inserted a toothpick before removing it and the toothpick came out clean, but like I said it seemed under baked. Any suggestions?

Lots of fiber & increased protein with almost NO fat at all. Yeah!! Question: Can you use oat BRAN (Bob’s Red Mill or Trader Joe’s) instead of old fashioned oats? If so…how much? Think I’ll be trying this recipe this weekend after I steam up some fresh pumpkin & homemade applesauce! :)

Hi Katie,
Sorry, I am so confused with the sweetener amount. The recipe says, 1 1/2 cups sweetener or 2-3 Tbs. Stevia. I have some Splenda in a bag- are you saying that I can use 1 1/2c. of Splenda which is equal to 2-3 Tbs of Stevia? These sound really good and I can’t wait to make them. I have made many of your skakes/smoothies and love them all!

Dashing Dish said:

Hi Tracy, yes if you use splenda you would use 1 1/2 cups sweetener. I love my muffins sweet, so go ahead and try 1 cup splenda, taste a bit of batter, and add more according to your sweet tooth! :)

May 22nd, 2012 — 3:58pm  | 

Tracy said:

Thanks for the quick response. I made them last night using 1 cup of Splenda and they turned out great. My 12yr old daughter even liked them(didn’t tell her how heathly they were).

I have always used Splenda and just recenly picked up a box of NuStevia(per one of your other recipes). Being new to Stevia, can you tell me the difference between Stevia, NuStevia, Baking Stevia in regards to the amounts? I take it they are not created equally. If your recipe calls for Stevia, that doesn’t mean Nu or the Baking? Or are they all interchangeable? If you mean Nu or the Baking in a recipe, will it specify which kind?

Hi Katie! First of all, I LOVE your site… I’ve been a bit obsessed since I found it last month. Quick question though: Do these muffins always fall after you bake them? I have made them a few times, and each time I take them out of the oven the are beautiful and puffy, but a minute later the tops fall down and they become flat. They’re still ridiculously delicious, but I didn’t know if I was doing something wrong. Thanks!

Holly Mowery said:

Devine! Made these today and I’m in heaven! Had absolutely no trouble with them and they came out as perfect muffins. Sometimes seperating wet and dry ingredients help in the beginning with settling and I actually pounded the oats by hand. Used fat free yogurt, unsweetened applesauce and a full scoop of my protein powder and these are amazing for such a low calorie and high protein snack. A staple in my book now!

Hi Katie, this recipe looks fantastic and I definitely want to make them!
Just one question is, I have never used protein powder for baking, but how are they supposed to be when they are used in baked goods? I would usually replace protein powder to oat flour or whatever the recipe calls, but just curious. How the texture supposed to be when muffins or other baked goods contain protein powder?

WOW! I just made these and they were delicious. I just recently started making gluten free recipes. I happened upon a muffin recipe similar to this one that I adapted into blueberry muffins. My husband who doesn’t ever like baked goods because they are too dry adored them. I was shocked! These are so moist and taste great. Another hit. I did make a few changes. I didn’t have protein powder so I added 1/4 cup more of oats, I reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup and I added in a banana. I am loving your website and found it at such a perfect time in my life. Thank you!

Hi! I just found your website and loooove it! This is the first thing I cooked with stevia. I bought the sweet leaf stevia packets bc my grocery store didn’t have the nunaturals kind. I put in 10 packets and cooked for 17 minutes. I tasted them out of the oven and I think the stevia tasted a bit bitter. I guess I though t woul taste like normal sugar. Does anyone else notice that? Is it just something I have to try and get used to or could it be because I didn’t use nunaturals? Also, mine were too moist in the middle. Almost seemed uncooked. Next time I would leave them in longer. I’d appreciate any feedback about the stevia though bc I’m looking for a healthy sugar substitute with similar taste. Thanks!!

Although it was great without any add-ins next time I will try raisins (to half, apparently some people don’t like raisins ;). When I took my first bite I just felt like I was expecting that juicy raisin to complement it. But plain, they were still wonderful.

I have made these twice so far. I don’t have greek yogurt so I blended up some cottage cheese instead and it worked perfectly. Second time I put less oatmeal (100g, or a little over a cup) and put 2 scoops (60g) of vanilla protein powder to boost the protein and lower the carb content, and it still worked out great!
I also put a little mix of cream cheese, egg yolk, vanilla, and stevia (for sweetness) on each muffin (I’ve made both standard and mini muffins) before baking, and top them off with mini choco chips, pecans, or brown sugar.
They’re a very satisfying and relatively healthy treat for Fall!
Thanks for the recipe :)

I made a few changes, but I’m sure these are excellent as written. I just made the changes based on what I had here vs. what I didn’t. I did not have protein powder, so I decided to add 1/4 cup chia seeds for a little extra. Opted for 2 whole eggs rather than just egg whites, and used 3/4 cup turbanado sugar. I ground the oats in the food processor, then mixed everything by hand. I pressed whole oats on the top. This made 45 mini-muffins. Hands down, best muffins I’ve ever made. I made these 2 days ago, and they are still so moist they taste fresh. Definitely making again!

I used my blender, blended all dry ingredients first, whipped wet ingredients in bowl, then mixed all together. This helped my oats blend finer more like flour. Also added chopped pecans. They were a huge hit, even with the “not so healthy eaters” lol. My new go to muffin recipe, thank you so much!!!!

These are THE BEST pumpkin muffins I have made…and I have tried many recipes! I only used a little less stevia, otherwise no changes and they are so moist and good that no one would know how healthy they are!

Just baked them. They turned out great! I first ground the oats in my Nutribullet so that it was a fine flour. If your blender isn’t a good one like a Ninja, the blender idea could be a problem. After my Cuisinart blender did a poor job, I transfered the mixture into my Nutribullet and it saved the day. I also added 1.5 tbs of flax and swapped out 1/4 cup brown sugar for a portion of the stevia for a more authentic muffin taste.I really enjoyed making these muffins. They are moist and only a tiny bit sweet. I put raisins in half.

Hi! Im excited to make these!! Thinking about using coconut flour instead of oats. Do you know how to substitute coconut flour?

I made these for my family and they loved them! We are not gluten free, so I think that says a lot. I used fresh pumpkin, and dates for the sweetener. I put the oats in my blendtec first and made it into flour. Then I took it out, blended all my wet ingredients including the dates and added the oats and other dry ingredients back and pulsed just to combine. I added the chocolate chips and cooked them for 20 minutes. They made 21 regular muffins. I made some with paper liners – I would advise against it as they stuck to the paper.

Great muffins! Really moist, you should mention that they raise when they’re ready to be taken out of the oven.

great ? angela! I actually used stevia…I used powdered stevia (2 tbs actually came out to be 16 packets) although, I used splenda one time too…and they came out the same! i like my baked goods really sweet though, and the stevia i use (NuStevia brand) may be different in sweetness to others, so i’d taste the batter with 1 1/2 tbs and add more if you want if you don’t like things too sweet! :)

However, one rule of thumb with baked goods, is that the batter should be a bit sweeter than your liking, because once baked, the sweetness ‘balances’ out quite a bit! :)

Hope that helps!

Hey Natalie! I really wouldn’t recommend using quick cook oats, only because in the past, when i baked with them the baked goods always turned out very sticky! :) On a positive note, I just got a huge tub of old fashioned oats (quaker brand) for 2.25 from target today! :) So if you can, i’d make a trip to target! :)

nope…the oats blended up are supposed to act as the ‘flour’ it will not come out just like a normal bread but instead a moist muffin! :)

@ christina sure! :) i used stevia which is a natural sweetener, but as far as sugar goes, i would use 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar….if you like a sweet muffin, if that sounds too sweet, cut the white sugar to 1/4 cup! :)
