Pumpkin Muffins

There are recipes that go around the Weight Watchers community and one of them involves a box of cake mix and a can of pumpkin puree. The other more famous one is a box of cake mix and a can of diet soda (in various flavors of both) which I haven’t tried yet. This one has only a handful of ingredients and is super easy to make.  The bonus, they’re only 5 points+ for a big muffin (or 1/12 of the recipe if you make a cake or breads)!


  • 1 15oz can pumpkin puree (not the pie mix)
  • 1 box yellow cake mix (I’ve also used spice cake mix and if you decide to use it, omit the spices below)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp each nutmeg, cloves, and ginger

Mix all ingredients together and bake according to package directions on box.



It may need a little longer as I made muffins and it took closer to 24 minutes, just check it at the time it tells you to and check every 3-5 minutes after until a knife inserted comes out clean.



They came out very moist.  If you’re making them for dessert, you can top them with a low fat cream cheese frosting, just powdered sugar, or a glaze of some sort.



You get 1 big muffin or 1/12 of the recipe for 5 points+
