Cooking Thursday


It's Cooking Thursday, hosted by Sandra at Diary of a SAHM. Be sure to stop over at her place to see what other recipes people are sharing.

I am sharing a recipe that is probably the easiest one I've ever posted. Not only is it easy - it's yummy and it's a relatively low cal chocolate fix.
Don't be afraid of the pumpkin - you don't even taste it; just fudgy chocolate!


Weight Watchers Chocolate Muffins

1 box Devils Food cake mix
1 can (15 ounce) solid pack pumpkin

Mix together. Do not add any other ingredients. The mixture will be very thick and you will be tempted to add something to thin it, but don't!
Place in muffin tins, sprayed with non-stick spray or with liners.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
This makes 12 muffins
Each muffin is 180 calories, 2.5 grams fat, 37 carbs, 2.5 grams fiber, 2.5 grams protein.

*I made this into 18 muffins instead. They were still good sized and cut the calorie count.

Wow! I can't quite imagine chocolate and pumpkin combined, but I'll try any recipe once and the healthy component is an enticement. Thanks, Mari!

Well, that is certainly the easier recipe I've ever read!!

Kat said...

Oh.My.Word! If only I could reach through my computer screen and grab one!!!!!!! That and a cup of cold milk would be heaven. Thanks for a low cal treat. Hmmmm...who will eat the 11 others though?? I'm afraid if I make 12, I'll eat 12. I'm saving the recipe though for when someone is here to help me.

Hugs,
Kat

Oh my goodness, I'm drooling!! :) That looks so tasty!

Just a little question, solid pack pumpkin, is that like pie filling? I just ask because I live in Norway and sometimes it isn't so easy to find the ingredients we have at home!:)

Have a lovey day.

I've made chocolate zucchini muffins before and they were the tastiest, richest, fudgiest muffins I've ever had. I bet these are just as good...so moist they melt in your mouth, right?

Yummy.

Melinda said...

Those look and sound yummy. I think about 50% of my menu plans probably involve one or more of your recipes!

Connie said...

This sounds like a winner!

Melissa said...

These are so good, and you're right, you really can't taste the pumpkin! I haven't made these in a while, but I think I'm going to have to add them to my list of things to make soon! :)

Nancy said...

That looks delicious! And WW too? Oh, my - I can't wait to try it! Thanks for sharing.

kari said...

It's a WW muffin? I have to try this one.
thanks for the recipe!

septembermom said...

Oooh something yummy, chocolate and I don't have to worry about calories? I'm in!

Diane said...

I've always loved this recipe! I add 1/2 bag of chocolate chips too... YUMMY!!! We've also made it with different kinds of cake mix. White cake mix is one of our favorites!

Mari,

I decided to try these today as an after school snack for me and the boys. I gotta tell you, I was skeptical. But, WOW, you were right!! They are really good. And, really filling!!!

Thank you for sharing this recipe! (I like Diane's idea above - maybe I'll try some other cake mixes and play around with it - maybe a spice cake mix with white chocolate chips.)

Gonna keep pumpkin in the house! :)
