This Weight Watchers pumpkin spiced muffins recipe 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 Weight Watchers Pumpkin Spiced Muffins signals the beginning of the Fall season. 

Fall Treat

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.

These are all of the ingredients that you need for these delicious Weight Watchers Pumpkin Spice Muffins

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 🙂

Just 3

I feel silly including a recipe card for three ingredients but here goes…

Weight Watchers Pumpkin Spiced Muffins…

Yield: 24 Muffins

Serving Size: 1 Muffin


  • 1 - 18 ounce box spice cake mix
  • 15 ounce can of pumpkin
  • 1 cup water


Preheat over to 350 degrees.

Mix all ingredients in mixer.

Pour batter into muffin tins.

Bake 20-25 minutes

These muffins are very moist - I promise

Each Pumpkin Spice Muffin is 2 Points Per Value on the Weight Watchers program.


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.

Mix the Weight Watchers Pumpkin Spiced Muffin mixture until smoothI 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 2PPV on the 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 🙂

Just a little bit of the Fall season from our kitchen to yours…Happy Fall Y’all !! You may also like our other pumpkin recipes. Just click the links:

  1. I have made this recipe twice. The first time we went up in the mountains and all I had were two round loaf pans. Oh my, we just couldn’t stop eating this. I then made them in muffin tins. The first batch was with walnuts, raisins and dried blueberries. The next batch was plain. All of them come out great. Moist!!!!! I could see walnuts and chocolate chips but I am trying to stay on the healthy side. Maybe a small batch at Thanksgiving with chocolate.

    Thank you for an easy, delicious recipe.

      Hey there M.B. –

      We are thrilled that you tried the Pumpkin Spiced Muffins and that you found them to be as tasty as we did. We love all of your recipe variations and we are glad to know that the loaf pan method worked – can’t wait to try that ourselves! Thanks for dropping us a line…

    2. Great idea with the add-ins! I’ve got some golden raisins I’m going to try in mine…

  2. Linda Mack says:

    These muffins look delicious. Do you know how much sugar and how many carbs are in one helping?

  3. I’ve made these before, but found your article as I was looking for the cook time. I didn’t realize they were so low-cal and WW friendly!!! I told my husband and he said “that means they will taste awful”. I happily proved him wrong! Love these!

  4. I make these all the time because they are so easy and my family loves them. I have also added mini choc chips. Awesome!! Just gotta recalculate points.

  5. Lisa woods says:

    Leave out the water… I have been making these for a long time. Just the cake mix, and can of pumpkin. I make them in a mini muffin pan and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes!!! They are delicious!!!

    1. How many muffins does it make?

  6. These are fabulous. I made them with a 1/2 cup of applesauce instead of the water. I didn’t add anything else to them, it made 24 muffins at 90 calories each. I did find that liked them much better cold then warm. If I was weren’t watching calories I would add cream cheese frosting!

  7. how many muffins? When I calculated the points, it was 4ppv, but that was for 12.

  8. I love this recipe! I too make this without the water but wonder if the water would make it more moist. Hmm. Maybe next time.

    We add a small spray of whipped cream on top for “icing” and it makes you feel like you are cheating without the points!


  9. Just made these. So delecious and moist. How many calories?

  10. Can u make it in a 9 13 pan

  11. These are coming at the six point seeds on my weight Watchers app when I build the recipe, am I doing something wrong, I sure hope so cuz I made him and cannot wait to dive in lol.

    1. Victoria Newcomer says:

      I’ve been counting them as 2 pts each. I have lost weight each week while eating these fabulous little gems. If I make 18 instead of 24 muffins, I’ll count each as 3 pts. My hubs loves them as well and isn’t doing WW!

  12. So do you make the cake as directed, with eggs, oil etc and then add the pumpkin and water? Or do u just add the pumpkin and water to the dry cake mix?


    1. Victoria Newcomer says:

      No oil or edd needed. You simpky dump the dry cake mis, water and pumpkin in a bowl, and bake! Fab U Lous!

      1. Hi Victoria-

        We’re so glad that you like them. They are a definite treat for us!

        Thanks for following along,
        Vicki and Jenn

  13. Is thier a difference between Betty cricker and Duncan Hines aside from the weight contents? Also is a muffin 2 points on the new weight watchers program?

    1. Hey Howard! You should be okay using either brand of spice cake mix. To be honest, on the new points plus system, it is 0 points for 1 muffin when we put the ingredients in, but I would count them as at least 1 point.

  14. I just made these, and they are very good! Instead of water, I used pure apple juice. I got 20 muffins. According to weight watchers freestyle app, they are 3 points for one, then jumps to 7 for 2. (4 puts for second muffin) Next time I might try adding an egg or 2 to increase the quantity produced.

    1. Hello Paulette – These are regular sized muffins. The points are calculated from the program a few years ago.

  15. Frances Howell says:

    How does one put this in the Weight Watchers phone app. System?

    1. Hello – we completed our program a few years ago, so we aren’t familiar with the current app. Sorry we aren’t more help.

      1. Elisabeth says:

        When I plugged in one box cake mix and one can pumpkin and 18 muffins it actually comes up 0 points for 1 and 1 point for two. Seriously how can there be such a big difference?

        1. Hi Elizabeth – our recipe is based on a WW program from 5 years ago.

          We are not sure of their current program parameters.

  16. Oh my goodness!! these are amazing and even my kids like them. I didn’t add water at all and they turned out so moist and yummy I will make them again. Anything that has pumpkin in it I’m all over it. Cant believe these are WW. thank you!!

  17. How many calories are these?

  18. I make these leaving out the water and adding a bag of cinnamon chips! They freeze very well and are delicious!

  19. Can someone give me the calories for each cupcake??

  20. Margaret Lotz says:

    I made these and added a little extra pumpkin pie spice and i made weight watchers frosting with S F cream cheese pudding and cool whip so I could make them into cupcakes for my family and they loved them

  21. If I scan the cake mix and pumpkin to calculate points per muffin I could have 3 = 1 point! Why is the point per muffin 2-3 points for prepared muffins? I’m so confused.

  22. These sound delicious! I made similar muffins using pumpkin bread jiffy mix but I prefer spice cake myself. Adding these ingredients to my shopping list right now! Pinned.

  23. Rebecca Payne says:

    I can’t wait to try them.

  24. I made these yesterday and we really enjoyed them. How do you store these? I put them in a zip loc bag and they are so moist, there was condensation in the bag this morning?
