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!!!

Pumpkin Blueberry Muffins

What better way to start a rainy day than with a steaming cup of coffee and a freshly baked muffin!  These are very easy to make, low in PointsPlus™ and delicious!

Makes 12 Muffins
1 Muffin = 2 PointsPlus™

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup quick cooking oats
2/3 cup Splenda granulated
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 cup fat-free milk
1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
1/4 cup light butter, melted
1 cup blueberries

Preheat oven to 400º. Spray muffin pan; set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, oats, Splenda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together until evenly blended.

In a separate bowl, stir together the pumpkin, milk, egg substitute and melted butter. Gradually stir in the flour mixture until all ingredients are moistened.

Fold in blueberries.

Spoon into muffin pan. Bake @20 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly pressed.

MY SPIN: I love cinnamon, so my 1/2 tsp was rounded instead of level.

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)!
