The beauty of WW is that it's not just a diet, but also a way of healthy living. Because of that, you can truly eat whatever you want, as long as you keep track of your SmartPoints. This Fall, we're all going to want to dig into our favourite seasonal flavours, including pumpkin. I love whipping up all sorts of pumpkin goodies when the leaves start to change colours, so when I got back on WW and needed to be conscious of what I was eating, I started tweaking my favourite recipes to make them WW-friendly.
That includes these pumpkin muffins, which I started baking in a smaller size, because each mini muffin is just one SmartPoint. Try them for yourself — you'll find that these yummy bite-size treats are the perfect grab-and-go pastry to enjoy all season long.
Because there's no oil or butter in the recipe, these muffins will stick to your muffin tin liners even when using cooking spray.
