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+
