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 Raisin Muffins

It's Springtime and I'm still hooked on pumpkin! This recipe looks like it would be complicated because it has a 'few' ingredients, but you probably have them in your pantry.  The raisins give them a nice 'kick'!

Makes 20 Muffins
1 Muffin = 2 PointsPlus™

2 cups Splenda granulated
1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin puree (NOT pie filling)
1 cup fat-free egg substitute
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Spray muffin pans; set aside.

In a large bowl, beat Splenda, pumpkin, egg substitute and applesauce until well combined.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, ginger and cloves. Gradually beat this into the pumpkin mixture. Stir in raisins.

Fill 20 muffin cups @3/4 full. Bake @30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean.

Cool OUT of pan on a rack.

MY SPIN: The first time I made these, I used cupcake papers and they stuck to the paper. These went to my Friday WW meeting......we ate them.....but I was so dissapointed that they stuck to the papers that I HAD to make them again. These are awesome!!!

These last 2 pictures are from the first batch.....with the cupcake papers.

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)!
