Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Pour into muffin tin. Bake for 12-15 minutes. For the protein powder, I used Level-1 pumpkin spice latte. For the sugar substitutes I used the brand Swerve! Once the muffins cool, mix together almond milk and powdered sugar for the icing! Store in the fridge.
