Skinny GF Low Carb Pumpkin Protein Muffins

Fall is here and it's time for Pumpkin! I'm trying to keep to my no carb and sugar free diet so I made these with flax meal, almond meal, a tiny bit of honey, lots of pumpkin and spices and threw in some pomegranate seeds for fun!  I love muffins that are super healthy and almost guilt free!!  Hope you enjoy  xx
