Pumpkin Muffins, 2 Points each

These fluffy muffins have only 2 smartpoints each on the WW Freestyle program, formerly known as Weight Watchers.

Enjoy some of the flavors of fall with real pumpkin, apples and just the right spices! This uses the 2 ingredient dough base so popular on the WW Connect app.

If you have points left, spread on an extra treat – like a bit of pecan apple butter!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 c nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2/3 c whole wheat flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 c finely chopped apple
  • 1 TB powdered peanut butter (like PB2) or unsweetened cocoa (to tone down the sour flavor of the yogurt)
  • a few shakes of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger (or just use pumpkin pie spice mix if you have it, but I didn’t.)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350*.
  2. Stir together pumpkin and yogurt until well blended.
  3. Add flour, baking powder, egg and apple. Stir until just blended.
  4. Add powdered peanut butter / cocoa and spices. Just when you think you have enough, add another shake of cinnamon and ginger.
  5. Spoon into a tin for oversized muffins – makes 4 muffins.
  6. Bake at 350* for 20 minutes. Leave in oven, raise temp to 400* and bake 8 minutes more. Test with toothpick that centers are firm before removing from oven.
  7. Place muffin tin on a cooling rack and cool for 5 minutes before removing from muffin tin.

Enjoy!
