These Weight Watchers Pumpkin Muffins are perfect for getting you in the mood for fall! I mean, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back already! The bummer about muffins is that they aren’t always the best for your waistline.

Have you seen the Pumpkin Spice Weight Watchers Muffins floating around Pinterest?? My cousin pinned this recipe from 2 Bees in a Pod, and I knew we had to try them! We are always whipping up the -> Lemon Muffins, so it was the perfect time to make these. I love how easy they are to make; my kids mix both batches for me!!
I hate dealing with muffin liners, so the silicone mini muffin pan gets a workout in the kitchen!! Now, I seem to have the worst luck with metal pans, I seem to burn everything in them, so silicone pans are the way to bake for me when I can’t find glass pans. Amazon has a great price on them, plus you can order one on Amazon, so you don’t even have to leave the house, order, and bam UPS man is at the door, saving you time for you when you use Amazon Prime 2-day delivery! (Don’t have Prime? You NEED it for easy online shopping!!)
WHAT IS Weight Watchers?
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 allowance, 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 plan launched in November 2022 is similar to WW Smartpoints, with some color plans.
No matter the WW plan, they work to help you learn healthy eating habits. I have hit lifetime a couple of times but stopped working the plan and tracking, so the weight does creep back on.
Pumpkin Spice WW Muffins Ingredients:
- Spice Cake Mix– You can swap this out with a different flavor of cake mix, like white or yellow, but the spice adds a good flavor to the muffins.
- Pumpkin-Be sure to use one that doesn’t have extras added to it as this will affect the calories and weight watchers points on the recipe.
How To Make Weight Watchers Pumpkin Muffins:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the water and pumpkin in a bowl with a whisk.
Mix your spice cake into your pumpkin and water mixture. I tend to do it slowly as the mixture thickness up, and the batter will be thick
Line or grease your cupcake pan. With the silicone pan, I use a paper towel wettened with vegetable oil to grease the muffin cups.
Now I use a cookie scoop to fill my muffin cups up. You will want to fill about half to 3/4 full since the muffins will rise a bit. I have the worst luck with scooping even cookies or scoops of batter so this is perfect for me to use in the kitchen.
Bake for about 15-22 minutes, depending on your oven.
One of my other kitchen favorites is my oven gloves! Now I am not the most graceful in most situations add in a hot oven or pans, and it gets even worse. I love using these bbq gloves in the kitchen, too, since I can grab the pain and be in better control. The kids also love using them, which I feel is much safer than regular potholders.
