Pumpkin muffins - 2 points on Weight Watchers

Do you need a new breakfast or snack option? Try these pumpkin muffins! They are fluffy, lightly sweet and only 2 points for a muffin or Weight Watchers Freestyle program or 2 for 3 points, thanks to Weight Watchers math.

The recipe makes 24 muffins, try not to eat them all in one day!


When shopping for your ingredients, make sure to get canned pumpkin and not pumpkin pie mix. This would be bad for your point count!

Since the recipe doesn't have any butter or oil in it, it might stick to paper cupcake liners. For this reason I recommend using silicone baking liners and spraying them lightly with cooking spray.

If you like this recipe, try my two-point apple muffins.



Ingredients:
2 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup water
1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
3 eggs
1 can pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie mix)
1/2 cup unpacked brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tb pumpkin pie spice
cooking spray
Silicone baking liners

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin pans with either paper liners or silicone baking liners. If using silicone, spray them lightly with cooking spray. The batter should make 24 muffins.

Beat all ingredients together with an electric mixer. I use my Kitchen Aid handheld mixer with the beater attachments.

Fill each liner with batter until approximately 3/4 full. Bake in preheated oven for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted and it comes out clean. Store muffins in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. They also freeze well.
