Serves 6

Ingredients:

-3 tbsp white flour (23g)

-3 tbsp ground flax seed (30g)

-2 scoops vanilla, Cinnabun or peanut butter protein (I used Cellucor’s PB Marshmallow)

-1/2 tsp baking powder

-1/4 tsp baking soda

-1/8 tsp salt

-1/2 cup(120g) pure pumpkin

-1 whole egg

-2 tbsp light cream cheese *(could use fat-free)

-2 tbsp apple sauce

-1/8 tsp vanilla extract

-2-3 tbsp Truvia or another sweetener to taste

-100g rhubarb peeled and chopped (about 3/4-1 cup)

-1 tsp cinnamon+ more for topping

-extra truvia for topping

Directions: Pre-heat oven to 350*F. Whisk together all dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl. In a separate bowl, combine all of the wet ingredients. Pour the wet into the dry and stir to combine. Fold in the rhubarb chunks and scoop the mixture into 6 greased or lined muffin tins. Sprinkle truvia and cinnamon over the top of each muffin. Bake for 15-20min or until a tooth pick comes out clean. Enjoy!
