The other day, my MIL (mother-in-law for those of you that don’t speak in acronyms!) made a batch of these easy pumpkin muffins. The recipe came from a friend of hers that goes to Weight Watchers. According to the friend, these muffins are only 1 WW point each! Not too bad! And, who doesn’t love a recipe that only calls for 3 ingredients?!?! Plus, this recipe is a great way to use up extra pumpkin that you have after the holidays!
1 18 oz boxed cake mix — either spice or carrot cake
1 15 oz can of pumpkin
2 Tbsp water
Cool Whip Light for topping
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Spoon into muffin tins lined with paper muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until a tooth pick, inserted into the center, comes out clean. Cool completely before serving. Top with Cool Whip before serving.
Is it a Keeper?
Considering how easy this recipe is, I was skeptical. But, I have to admit that these little suckers are pretty darn good! My MIL did have to increase the water in the recipe to 5 Tbsp. But other than that, the recipe worked out perfectly. They satisfied my sweet tooth and at 1 WW point, you can’t go wrong! While they aren’t necessarily the prettiest muffins I’ve ever laid eyes on, they are super moist and really yummy!
I think I’ll go have one right now!
