Using canned pumpkin in place of fats for cake/brownie mixes?
I was wondering if anyone could help me out here. I have a couple cans of pumpkin that were never used over the holidays. I also have numerous boxed cake/brownie/quick bread mixes. Prepared, with eggs & oil, I'm sure that most of them end up being pretty high in points. I know that you are supposed to be able to substitute canned pumpkin for the fatty ingredients, and get great results. Problem is, I have no idea how much to use, and I have no idea how doing so would affect my points calculations. Obviously, it would drop the fat content down much lower, but it would also add a dose of fiber. I'd love to mix up some of the apple-cinnamon bread I have a mix for, but am not sure what to do.
