A moist delicious Pumpkin Chip Muffins made from scratch. Full of fall flavor with chocolate chips baked right in. This muffin is only 168 calories per muffin and a perfect recipe to make when you don’t want to mix together a can of pumpkin with cake mix for the low calorie effect.

A perfect fall breakfast. I found a 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!

Pumpkin Chip Muffins

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!

Pumpkin Chip Muffins
Quick, easy and delicious.  If you’re looking for a taste of pumpkin and don’t want to go the cake mix/pumpkin route then these muffins are the way to go!
