  1. I make Weight Watcher muffins like this only I use the spice cake mix, a can of pumpkin (but you could use the same amount of cooked mashed pumpkin) and 1/4 cup of water. comes out super yummy and low cal with tons of fiber!

  2. melissa you dont put the pudding in the muffins do you? What do you use for the frosting?

    precious let me know if you try this and what you think.
