This Weight Watchers pumpkin spice muffins recipe – our most popular post ever, is one of our Fall favorites!
When Fall finally comes to town, I embrace it fully. I love it all…the colors of the changing leaves, pumpkins, scarecrows, fires in the fireplace, cool clear days, spiced cider and don’t even mention Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spiced Latte. I really love to cook and fluff my nest at this time of year. Baking typically signals the beginning of the Fall season. Weight Watchers Pumpkin Spice Muffins – Our Most Popular Post Ever!
By the way – you don’t need to be a weight watcher to enjoy these muffins. They are truly delicious – we pinky swear promise!
How popular are these muffins?
Just on Pinterest alone, they have been re-pinned over 120,000 times! Facebook users saved the recipe over 70,000 times. Pretty amazing, right?
I was looking through the Weight Watchers recipe site for a Fall treat and came across a recipe that seemed too good to be true – Fall Pumpkin Spiced Muffins. Sounds great, right? It gets even better – there are only three ingredients to make this recipe.
Unbelievable, right? I certainly thought this recipe was too good to be true. I had the ingredients in my pantry courtesy of my grocery store, Publix, had buy-one-get-one-free Duncan Hines cake mix special 🙂
I feel silly including a recipe card for three ingredients but here goes…
- 1 - 18 oz box of Duncan Hines spice cake mix
- 1 - 15 oz can of Libby's pumpkin. NOT pumpkin pie mix
- 1 cup of water
- Pam cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray muffin tins with cooking spray.
- Mix all ingredients with a mixer.
- Pour batter into muffin tins.
- Bake 20-25 minutes.
- Each Pumpkin Spice Muffin is 3 points per value on current WW program (10/21)
Each Pumpkin Spice Muffin is 3 Points Per Value on the Weight Watchers program. (10/21)
I was very skeptical about this recipe…no oil? no eggs? How could the muffins possibly be tasty and moist? I forged ahead figuring how bad could the muffins be? I put the three ingredients in the mixer…you can find the mixer here.
…and mixed the batter very well until there were no lumps.
I had forgotten that I had these cute Fall muffin tins that I purchased a few years ago. They were boxed up with my Fall decorations. You can order the muffin tins at Amazon here.
I did not need to coat my pans with cooking spray, as they are non-stick. You may want to coat your pans – depending on the type that you have. Now, all set to bake in the oven.
The house smelled so good while these were baking. The spices permeated the house and filled it with a sense of the season. Twenty minutes later – I had golden goodness.
Fresh out of the Oven
Not only are the muffins very easy to make – they truly are super moist and delicious. I recalculated the recipe in my Weight Watcher Kitchen Companion to confirm the correct points value. Each muffin is only 3PPV on the current Weight Watchers program. My Honey Bee is my true taste-tester. He loved them and he thought they were of the filled with fat variety. He couldn’t stop talking about how delicious they were. I even caught him trying to grab another one when he thought I wasn’t looking 🙂
