Low Fat Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Fall is here and that means pumpkin spice everything, amirite!?! I am guilty of falling into the category of basic white girl when it comes to this. I love it, and I'm not sorry. From what I have seen on the net and the occasional times I get out into the real world, it seems like lots of others do too! I have bought pumpkin coffee, pumpkin butter, pumpkin creamer, pumpkin errrrthing. Anyone who follows me on Social Media knows that I am doing Weight Watchers again for like the 3rd time, buuut I am actually sticking with it this time! A lot of this pumpkin spice biz is choc full of fat and calories and that sucks. Even Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte with SKIM milk has a zillion calories :(. I've been seeing different versions of these muffins all over the web, and these are the ones I like best. You don't even really have to know how to bake to make these, they are that easy. Only 3, that's right THREE ingredients. 2 points plus (Weight Watchers) or 80 calories per muffin. 

  • 15 oz can of pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 box Duncan Hines Spice Cake Mix 

Preheat oven to 350°.

Add all ingredients to a large bowl. Beat about 2 minutes, using the same directions on the package. Do NOT add anything else. Don't add the eggs or oil listed on the package. Once well mixed, use a scoop or spoon (I use a 7/8 scooper, 2 scoops) to add mixture to lined muffin pan. Each muffin cup should be about 2/3 full. 

Bake for 18-20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. 

I like to serve mine with Fat Free Redi Whip and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. This adds 0 points or 5 calories.
