Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Protein Muffins

I decided to change it up for breakfast the week and made these tasty muffins!  These have been the perfect, with the perfect balance of cinnamon.  They're great for breakfast or a mid-morning snack because they're dense and filling and will keep you feeling full for several hours.
