So, I only have 1/2 of a can of pumpkin in my cabinet now. I wanted to use it up before I bought more because I’m trying to keep my cabinets somewhat empty. A few weeks ago when Keith and I were still dieting, I found a healthy recipe on Sparkrecipes.com. it makes 24 pumpkin muffins for 92 calories and only 1.5 grams of fat! I stretched the batter to 30 muffins, so that’s even less than 92 calories per muffin.
Here’s what the recipe tells you to do:
Take 1 15 oz. can of pure pumpkin and mix it with a box of spice cake mix (I used Duncan Hines). Add 1 cup of water and bake it as the box of cake mix recommends.
Here’s what I did:
Mix the pumpkin and the cake mix. If it seems like it’s too thick, add a 1/4 of a cup of water at a time….just so it doesn’t get too runny. 🙂
I baked mine in my silicone muffin pan without liners, but I would highly recommend using a metal pan WITH liners. I think it would be less of a headache getting them out of the oven and onto the cooling rack.
I don’t know if I’ll make these again. They have the consistency of pumpkin pie…my husband would say they have the consistency of baby food. I salvaged them by adding a good dollop of Nutella to em. I know that probably blows the calorie count out of the water, but they sure are good with it! 🙂
