Default Pumpkin Spice Muffins

I got this recipe from an old WW leader. I've made it, but the recipe made more muffins than it said. Unfortunately, the instructions are not very good. Also, the recipe says each muffin is 2 points each, but I specifically remember her saying they were 1 point each because she brought them to class. So, I've tried to calculate myself from the ingredients and wondered if someone has Mastercook or e-Tools and could double check it for me.

Recipe: Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

1 box Devil's Food cake mix

1 -15 oz. can pumpkin

1/2 c. water

Mix together and bake according to box directions. I would suggest using a muffin pan, not cupcake holder, as they stuck to mine. Spray with cooking spray, even if your pan is non-stick.

You can use Spice cake mix for Pumpkin Spice muffins.

Makes 24 muffins at 2 points each.
__________________________________________________ __

Now notice, it doesn't say mini muffins...but that's what she brought. So, I tried with spice cake mix. I came out with 30 mini muffins.

Here is what I came up with based on the nutrition info. Tell me if I did this right.

The nutrition info off the cake mix is:

30 calories/serving for 12 servings = 360 calories
4 g fat/serving x 12 svgs = 48g fat
No fiber

The nutrition info off the pumpkin is:

40 calories/serving x 3.5 servings = 140 calories
.5g fat x 3.5 svgs = 1.75g fat rounded to 2 g fat
5g fiber x 3.5 svgs = 17.5g fiber rounded to 18 g fiber

500 total calories divided by 30 mini muffins = 17 calories
50g fat divided by 30 muffins = 2g fat
18g fiber divided by 30 muffins = .6g fiber

So, because the amount of fiber in each muffin was less than 1 gram, I decided on 2 muffins/serving.

2 muffins = 1.2g fiber, 34 calories and 4g fat = 1 point

Is that possible? 2 mini muffins are only 1 point? They are really good. Just make sure to bake about 25 minutes or you will have gooey middle. The first 24 I baked for 20 minutes were gooey. The remaining 6 for 25 minutes were just right. The recipe says to read box for directions, but there weren't any directions for mini muffin pan. Now I am thinking recipe might have meant for a regular size muffin. 2 points for a regular size muffin would be great too.

These taste perfect for the season. Get you into that autumn mood.

Again, if anyone can run this through an electric calculator, I would appreciate it.

Lisa, I noticed this was an old post, but if you are still out there and love pumpkin, do you have that old, old weight watcher's receipe for pumpkin custard? I seem to remember you put in 1 small can of pumpkin (not pie filling), 1 small can of crushed pineapple, sweeten to taste with Splenda, a little non fat dry milk and a few T. of flour, pumpkin pie spice and bake for about 30 min. at 350. I can't find the receipe, so you would have to figure the points & kind of experiment with the non fat dry milk and flour. I think it was about 1/2 c milk & 2-3 T. of flour. My teenaged boys even liked it!

Just a thought, but you could try a pumpkin cake mix and a can of diet gingerale and make them like pop cake for 1-2 points! You could even throw a few raisins on top if you want!

Hmmmm -- I got only 10.5 points for the whole recipe! That would be only 1 point for a regular sized muffin! That's what I remember from the "old days", too.

Another good 1 point dessert recipe is one box of angel food cake mix combined with one large (20 ol?) can of crushed pineapple, undrained, and baked in a 13 x 9 pan. Makes 16 1 point servings, and is very good and dense.

Default Pumpkin/carrot muffins

Many yrs ago, I got a recipe from my WW leader for pumpkin/carrot muffins--they were delicious and unbelievably "cheap" as far as point count went. Anybody out there remember/have a recipe like that? Also, I have lots of old recipes (WW and others) that I would love to have an updated nutritional count/value on--is MasterCook software capable of doing that?
Thanks so much!

Default Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin Muffins

1 - cake mix (yellow or spice)
15 oz - can pumpkin
1 - egg white
1 teas - gr. cinnamon
1/2 teas - gr. nutmeg
(and since I like cloves, I add....
1/4 tsp. gr.cloves & somtimes a little dried or freshly zested orange peel)

Mix all of above until light (about 3 min on medium) and then bake according to the cake mix directions. You can use Pumpkin Pie Spice instead of the individual spices if you have it.

They are 2 pt per muffin. They are not really big but I try to get 24 out of this mix. I'll usually make some using my mini muffin pan (for 1 point) and the rest regular cupcake size (2 pts). I have added, on occasion, about 2 tablespoons of finely chopped nuts or even dried cranberries...but this adds points, or rather fractions of points per serving.
