Pumpkin Chip Muffins (WW Points included)

Yummy, moist, full of pumpkin flavor with a hit of semi – sweet chocolate.  Perfect fall breakfast.

I found the recipe for Pumpkin Muffins II on allrecipes.com and adapted it to fit the Weight Watcher’s Points Plus Plan.  You can eat two of these for breakfast, or one for a snack later in the day, and it doesn’t hurt your points bank!

I reduced the sugar, added more pumpkin, used egg whites instead of eggs, and added about 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips to give it a little “somthin-somethin”.   Definitely a winner.  They went to work and the container was empty before I had a chance to go and grab one.  Fortunately I had wrapped up one at home for me to have later, or I wouldn’t have had a chance to try them!

These are only 4 Points Plus on the Weight Watchers plan.  Quick, easy and delicious.  If your looking for a taste of pumpkin and don’t want to go the cake mix/pumpkin route then this is the way to go!
