Protein Pumpkin Cupcakes

Posted on

So I like to make things out of pumpkin ... even I'm sensing a pattern here. Pumpkin is a deliciously under-rated, low calorie and extremely versatile vegetable. Who doesn't love a good pumpkin soup or pumpkin pie?

Pumpkin has heaps of health benefits too. It's orange colour tells us that it is loaded with the anti-oxidant beta carotene, which is then converted by the body into Vitamin A.

Vitamin A makes our skin have that healthy glow, gives us good eyesight and strengthens our immune system. 

These cupcakes are actually so low in calories you can afford to eat all 6 of them yourself. I have been known to eat them for dinner.
