These Red Velvet Weight Watchers Muffins are the perfect little sweet treat!! My son is a Red Velvet cake fanatic. However, I prefer for there to not be all the calories of regular cake. I fell in love with making -> Lemon Weight Watchers Muffins that I had found in a Weight Watcher Facebook group, so we decided to switch it up and try it with a Red Velvet mix.
I love how simple and quick these muffins are to whip up. These WW muffins are always Isabella’s favorite to make; even when she was younger, she made them herself. They are that easy to make! Be sure to follow me on -> Pinterest for more great recipes as well!! We have been making these muffins since 2015, and they are always a hit.
WHAT IS Weight Watchers?
When starting a new weight loss program or diet change, consult a doctor or physician about personal health concerns. It is a good idea to have blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and hormones checked at a physical before and during being on the WW program.
New to Weight Watchers?? Also known as WW, a weight loss program uses points assigned to food to track and lose weight. When you sign up, you take an assessment that will assign you a point value to eat daily and a weekly allowance. You can carry over 4 points from the day into your weekly budget, which is handy when you need more points.
I have been on Weight Watchers since 2011. They have had Points Plus Value, WW Smartpoints, Blue Plan, Green Plan, Purple Plan, WW Personal Points, and now Weight Watchers Points. The new Weight Watchers Simplified plan is the new program launched in November 2022, similar to previous plans like WW Smartpoints, with some color plans. ( You can see the Weight Watchers Zero Point Foods 2023 -> here)
No matter the WW plan, they work to help you learn healthy eating habits. I have hit lifetime goal weight several times but stopped operating the plan and tracking, so the weight does creep back on.
Right now, you can head on over -> here and sign up for Weight Watchers for $10 a month!
Red Velvet Weight Watchers Muffins Ingredients:
- Red Velvet Cake Mix– Any brand will work; I have always used Betty Crocker. If you can find a sugar-free or reduced sugar, this will lower calories and Weight Watchers Points.
- Greek Vanilla Yogurt- Using a nonfat greek yogurt will lower the calories and the WW Point.s If you can’t find vanilla, you can use plain a bit of vanilla extract.
How To Make 3 Ingredient Red Velvet Muffins.
Be sure to preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Start by whisking together your yogurt and water in a bowl.
Next, slowly mix in the dry cake mix; you will not use any other ingredients listed on the cake mix box.
Take a paper towel, wet it with vegetable oil, and rub down the Muffin Pan with the greased paper towel. You do this so the muffins will easily pop out of the pan.
Scope the muffin batter into the silicone muffin pan. I always use a cookie scoop to fill the baking cups half full, which grow relatively large.
You could use a small cake pan to make a weight watchers red velvet cake and watch how long it bakes to tell when it’s done.
Bake for about 15-22 minutes, depending on your oven. I use a toothpick to check the doneness of the muffin.
Serve and enjoy!!
Be sure to recalculate your cake mix and how many muffins your batch makes for you into the recipe builder on the WW site. (Not a member yet? You can join here and get a free month; sometimes they change the promotions, so be sure to look). I was able to make 35 mini muffins. I think it would make 13-14 regular muffins.
Also, brands make a difference so also use the recipe builder with your brand’s information. My muffins worked out to 2 Weight Watchers Points per muffin.
