While most people in the Paleo community would advise you against snacking, Drilldoggy is totally for it! This is because, hectic days demands more energy in you which you can’t acquire from just having the meals. Snacking is a boon at such times and appeases your appetite during sudden hunger pangs as well.

However, whipping up a snack can be a tough job during busy hours. But don’t let this keep you hungry! Prepare a large batch of muffins ahead and store them for future use. So all you need to do is grab a paleo muffin from your pantry and munch on it every time your tummy grumbles for a snack.

When you are on a Paleo diet, even snacks should have a healthy touch in them. Paleo pumpkin muffins fit the bill perfectly as they are packed with the nourishing goodness of pumpkin! They are soft, fluffy as well as spicy and actually taste somewhat like a pumpkin pie. The almond flour and sliced almonds adds a crunchy texture and nutty undertone to the flavors too! They are so good that every bite will make you go Mmmmmm!
