Easy Weight Watcher Muffin Recipes

It’s a new year and people are trying to change their lives – weight and diet being one of the largest ones. And about this time, people are starting to lose some of their motivation and moving back to old habits. But, by finding recipes and snacks that fit into the diet plan you are following, you can keep yourself on the right track.

For me, this means following Weight Watchers. And I will admit, I am not currently on the wagon or following the plan. But I still try to make healthier treats and snacks when I want them, and those usually mean Weight Watchers type recipes.

One of my favourites is muffins. The great thing about these muffins is that you can use any combination that appeals to you. You can jazz them up if you want by adding extra ingredients.

Main Recipe:

1 can Pumpkin (398 ml or 12 ounces)

1 box Cake Mix

Mix the two together and bake for half an hour at 350 degrees. If the mix seems a little dry, you can add a bit of water to it to make it the consistency you want.

But here is where it gets fun – you can make all sorts of combinations. Notice I didn’t say what flavour of cake mix? That is because you can do whatever works for you! Here are some good combinations:

Chocolate cake and pumpkin

Carrot cake and pumpkin

If you are not a fan of pumpkin, here are some other ideas for you:

1 can Pop or Soda (355 ml or 1 1/3 cups)

1 box Cake Mix

Good combinations:

Coke and Chocolate Cake or Any Dark Pop with Chocolate Cake

Sprite and Lemon or Orange Cake or any Light Pop with a Light Cake

If you want to add something to the recipe to make it a bit more interesting, here are some ideas for you. You can mix them into the batter or you can put them on the top of the muffin

  • Raisins
  • Chocolate chips (of course, this will increase the point count)
  • Dried Fruit
  • Coconut Flakes
  • Jam

You can easily bake this in a bread pan instead of as muffins. I have made this recipe for people at work and not told them it is a Weight Watchers recipe and it always goes over well. When I tell them the recipe, they are always shocked!

Another option I have tried is:

1 Step Angel Food Cake

1 Can Crushed Pineapple

One warning with this combination – it tends to stick to the pan and the pineapple settles if you let it sit too long before baking.

      I do not know as I have not used points plus. Like anything, you should be inputting the ingredients into your counter to calculate

      I use diet, but you can use either. You need to calculate the points either way. I believe that regular pop doesn't add a lot to each muffin, depending on how many you make.
