Weight Watchers Chocolate Muffins

These Weight Watchers muffins are so delicious. Try adding some cinnamon and nutmeg for some spice.

Ingredients:

  • 1 box devils food cake mix
  • 1 can (15 oz) solid pack pumpkin

Directions:

Mix just these two items together. DO NOT add anything else that is mentioned on the box. It only takes these 2 ingredients. That's all. Mixture will be very thick (and you will be tempted to add something, but don't). Place in muffin tins, sprayed with non stick spray. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.

Using a cake mix is really bad. They are full of partially hydrogenated oils which are transfat, the worst kind of fat to clog arteries. The only safe way is to bake from scratch and use olive or canola oils.

Oh, boy do these sound fantastically good! Thanks so much for sending these in! Do you think this recipe might also work as a cake in a 9x13 pan?

We do not have tinned pumpkin in SA. Could I use cooked pumpkin, and if yes, how much?

Thank you!

Editor's Note: I'd say about 2 cups

About trans fat in cake mixes:

I am looking at a box of Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge cake mix from my pantry closet. There is 0% trans fat in the mix. There is partially hydrated soybean oil.

WW has a wildly popular carrot/pumpkin muffin recipe. Take 1 can pumpkin( not pie filling),l box carrot cake mix, 1/4 cup water, 1/2 c walnut pieces, 1/8 tsp. Vanilla.

Mix all ingredients, do not add any others listed on cake box directions. Fill muffin paper cps 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Moist, filling and low fat. Most popular muffins I make for sharing and eating, yum. They freeze well too.

I agree, using a cake mix is really bad (due to the partially hydrogenated oils)...another option if you don't have time to bake from scratch is to buy organic cake mix from Whole Foods or your local health food store.

OK - I agree. Using cake mix is bad. But how can I make this from scratch using whole wheat flour and no partially hydrogenated oils? I am not a cook. I have no idea how to convert this to a healthier recipe. Any suggestions?

Thanks so much for the recipe. I believe everything is ok in moderation. I know I am not supposed to eat the whole box of cake mix, even though sometimes I want to!!

Has anyone tried making this in a 9x13 pan? How long would it cook for?

If you are making these from scratch, instead of using any oil, try unsweetened applesauce. Much lower in calories and you still get the moisture.

I made this recipe. The muffins rose up high and were a fudgy shade of dark brown. They looked delicious but were truly awful. They were bland with an odd rubbery texture.

I've been making this Weight Watchers recipe for years, but my recipe calls for 2/3 cup water. I mix the pumpkin and water first, then the cake mix. Others have said this is great with a spice cake mix. I make 18 and each = 2 pts. Yum!
