A Quick Fall Lower-Cal Dessert Recipe

Thursday, October 16, 2014

A friend gave me a recipe for pumpkin muffins that is super easy. She said it was a Weight Watchers recipe. I modified it then entered it into the calorie counter I use. Give either a try - you may want to enter the ingredients into your own calorie counter just to make sure they are correct.

Original Recipe
One box of reduced-sugar yellow or white cake mix
One can of pumpkin (15 oz)
1/2 c water
1/2 bag of cinnamon chips
This is a Weight Watchers recipe that makes 24 muffins. 2 muffins = 3 points.

My recipe
One box of spice cake mix
One can of pumpkin (15 oz)
1/2 c water
My daughter was able to get 20 muffins out of this recipe. The calculation (if I did it correctly) gives it 81 calories per muffin (like I said, maybe enter these yourself).

For both recipes: Mix all ingredients together and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
