Last week our office manager came to work with a treat to share. She said she had been hearing about them on the radio and had to try them. They are chocolate brownie muffins and they are delicious. Not only are they good but they are healthy! This recipe will make 12 regular size muffins or 36 mini muffins. A regular muffin is only 2 weight watchers points, so a mini muffin is less than 1. They are rich so I have been making them as mini muffins. They have pumpkin in them, but I really can't taste it. The first time I made them, Bob came home and said "are those the muffins with pumpkin in them?" I said yes, but asked how he knew that. He said he had been hearing about them on the radio too! He loves them, even though he is usually very sceptical of things that he thinks may be low fat or calorie. Here is the recipe. I hope you enjoy them!
Chocolate Brownie Muffins
1 regular chocolate cake mix
15 oz canned pumpkin (plain - not pre-spiced for pie)
1 cup chocolate chips
Mix the cake mix and pumpkin together. Stir in chocolate chips. Put into greased muffin pans and bake at 350 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes until they test done.
