2 Muffin Recipes

Both of these muffin recipes were adapted from the Fat Free Vegan website.  I have modified both of these recipes.

Pumpkin Spice Muffins 

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees

-2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour
-1/4 cup of agave nectar (you can use sugar but I prefer agave nectar-if you use sugar, use about 1/2 cup)
-1 TBSP baking powder
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-1/4 tsp nutmeg
-1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice (optional)
-1 15 ounce can of pumpkin puree
-1/4 cup of raisins (you can use more if you like, I am just trying to keep the calories lower)
-1/2 cup of water

Mix dry ingredients.

Then add the pumpkin, agave, water and raisins and mix well.

Put mix into a sprayed muffin pan.  Bake 25-30 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.  Remove and let stand for 5 minutes.

According to my calculations, you can have 2 muffins for 3 points on WW.

Blueberry Muffins 

Set oven to 375 degrees

-3/4 cup soymilk
-1/2 cup applesauce
-1/4 cup water
-1 tsp vanilla
-2 cups whole wheat pastry flour on white whole wheat flour
-1/4 cup + 2 TBSP agave nectar (or 1/2 cup sugar)
-3 tsps baking powder
-1 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp cinnamon
-1 cup blueberries

Mix dry ingredients and then add wet ingredients to the dry mixture.  Put batter in a muffin pan.  This recipe can make either 12 big muffins or around 18 smaller muffins depending on what you want.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Let sit for 5 minutes.

For 12 muffins, 2 muffins = 3 pts for WW.

The pumpkin muffin recipe is definitely my favorite, but I hope you enjoy both!  :)

  1. I made your blueberry muffins over the weekend. They're really good! I cut the sugar down to 1/3 c and they came out to 2 pts each or 3.5 for 2 on the recipe building. Not bad for such a filling item.

    A friend suggested using orange juice instead of soy milk and cranberries instead of blueberries. She said she does stuff like that all the time and has a similar recipe she uses.

    Thanks again for a good recipe! I can't wait to try the pumpkin ones ;-)
