Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Mini Pumpkin Muffins

Good Tuesday evening everyone!!!! I did a little Kitchen Therapy yesterday and wasn't really sure if these came out good or not......but my Tuesday night WWers liked them. Phew! And I will tell you.......they're better today than they were last night! So here goes......

Makes 30 Mini Muffins
1 Muffin = 1 PointsPlus™

1/2 light butter, softened
1/2 cup Splenda granulated
1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 cup fat-free milk

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice. Set aside.

In a small bowl, mix together milk and pumpkin. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat softened butter and Splenda until light and fluffy. Add egg substitute and continue mixing. Add dry ingredients alternating with the pumpkin/milk mixture.

Fill muffin cups @ 3/4 full and bake 22 minutes.

Cool on rack.

MY SPIN: There isn't one! I adjusted the cinnamon in the recipe per popular consensus of the meeting.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.*

Loving Life(time)!
