Easy 2 PointsPlus Pumpkin Spice Muffins

These ridiculously easy Weight Watchers-friendly muffins have been a favorite of mine for a good ten years or more. I learned about them at one of my very first Weight Watchers meetings. I know there are already a ton of copies of this recipe floating around the web, but I am posting it anyway for those of our readers who are not familiar with this trusty old recipe.

And if you aren’t following Weight Watchers or watching your waistline, don’t dismiss these muffins. Even my husband and our kids enjoy them….although they would probably prefer I made bigger muffins. :-)

When I make these, I usually bake them on a Sunday evening and then store in a big Ziplock for us to enjoy all week for work day breakfasts. They also freeze well; just thaw however many you want the night before, then warm up in the microwave (if you want warm muffins) for 20 seconds.
