Pumpkin Muffins

Here is another pumpkin recipe!  These muffins were super good!  My daughters pretty much ate every single one.  They tasted like pumpkin pie!  I did not add protein powder but it is noted below that you can.  And, my muffins did come out pretty flat.  They definitely didn't look like the beautifully shaped overflowing muffin from the Beachbody website (which is where I got the recipe from) :)
