Healthy Protein Pumpkin Muffins!!!!

So, I know "pumpkin season" is long over!! But these are delish all year round and super enjoyable with a warm cup of tea for a cold windy night!! These Protein Pumpkin Fat Free Cream Cheese filled muffins are pretty healthy and just 130 calories a muffin.

1&3/4cups of oat flour (oats in blender)
1/4 c protein powder
2 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
2 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
2 eggs
1 can of pumpkin
5 packets of truvia
2 1/2 tbsp of Splenda brown sugar
1/4 c of brown sugar

6 oz of Fat free Cream Cheese
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tbsp of Greek yogurt
4 packets of sweetener of choice (truvia)

Combine the muffin batter mixture, starting with the dry-mix it all together. I used oats for the oat flour and blended it in the blender you can use whole wheat flour as well if you wish. But make sure you remeasure the oats after you have blended them! Then stir in the wet ingredients.

For the filling just combine all the ingredients in a separate bowl.

Preheat oven to 350
Fill a cupcake pan, each only 1/3-1/2 of the way full then spoon a dollop of the cream cheese mixture on top of that, then even out more muffin batter on top of the cream cheese(covering the it completely.) Should make about 10-12 muffins.
Bake for 20 mins!!!
