Combine Cake Mix & pumpkin to get Hungry Girl's Brownie Muffins May 4, 2008

Hungry Girl’s Brownie Muffins are amazing! They are a Weight Watcher gal’s decadent dream at 4 WW Points! HG’s recipe calls for Devil’s Food Cake Mix, but you could use any variety you’d like. At a WW meeting, a member said she uses a Spice Cake Mix & a teaspoon of cinnamon. Yum! This time, I accidently bought a milk chocolate mix, so they didn’t turn out as dark brown & fudgy looking as usual, but still tender, moist and delicious! I also sprinkle a bit of Sugar in the Raw on top to give it a sparkling crunch. You have to make this recipe to believe it! And if you are afraid of tasting pumpkin if you’re not a fan, don’t! The pumpkin adds lots of moisture and fiber (and a WW Veggie serving), but I don’t think you can taste it at all.

Just take any boxed cake mix and combine it with a can of pumpkin puree. I also put a few tablespoons of ground flax seed meal to get in more Omega 3’s.Mix until all the cake mix is moistened. It will be incredibly thick. Spoon into 12 muffin cups and bake at 400 for 20 minutes. I save one to eat and freeze the rest!
