"Even tho there are only two ingredients in this recipe...they are wonderful...I was leary cause I am not a fan of pumpkin...but these muffins are wonderful!!!!!! My whole family Loved them!"
Serving Size: 1 (36 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 12
"This was great - I actually made it in cake form. I do not like pumpkin but they tasted like really rich chocolate. i underbaked it just a minute or two to be extra moist. "
"These were really good. You do have to cook them a little longer than it says ,but you can't beat them for 3 points. You can also substitute applesauce for the pumpking filling. I recommend that you cook them for thirty minutes instead. "
"I just made these and didn't really care for them. They were too gooey and I cooked them for an extra amount of time."
"This is a great diet-friendly way to eat cake! I used milk chocolate cake mix and about a 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and it was rich, moist and didn't taste like pumpkin at all. I found it tasted best the day after. Thanks for this cool recipe!"
"Wow! These truly are delicious! And easy. I added 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips and baked them for the recommended 25 minutes. They were perfect! They sure satisfy a chocolate craving. : )"
"These are amazing! I used some acorn squash I had leftover from Christmas dinner (Recipe #48436) and it worked out perfectly! I ended up using a marble cake mix as that was the only one I had on hand. It worked like a charm. I also processed it in my food processor and didn't have any problems with lumps or ugly cupcakes. They came out so pretty! No one will be able to tell that they are made with squash! Thank you SO much for this great recipe. This is going to be a regular from now one! These are my new favourite cupcake!!"
"These are FANTASTIC! Even my son likes them. I do feel that I may have a problem with the points, because I can't stop at just one! Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Yuck! Did not care for these at all. Sorry"
"I just made these and they were great!! I did add chocolate chips, pecans and 1/3 cup water and and they were very moist and yummy and don't taste like pumpkin!!"
"Yum! I hate pumpkin and really liked these. I cooked them about 28 minutes and they came out perfect. Next time the kids need a treat for school, these are going!"
"I just made some of these - and I love them! I didn't add anything extra, and I baked them for the recommended time. The calorie count on the nutritional info is way off, though. By my calculations, they should be about 170 calories per muffin if you make 12. I will be making these again for sure!"
"These muffins are really great and I make them when I have a craving for something sweet but don't want to consume tons of calories. I sometimes add some mini chocolate chips for a little something extra. I personally hate pumpkin, but will eat these any day!"
"Delicious and virtually no calories or fat... definitely satisfied me and my 4 year old daughter's sweet tooth."
"Really disapointing! Just because a food is healthy doesn't mean it should be tasteless. This was so bland. It doesn't do any good to have a healthy recipe if no one will eat it or if you have to slather on oodles of icing to make it taste good. I won't be making these again."
"ditto about the 1/3-1/2 c. water. my kids loved them."
"ok,for the recipe the way it is, I could only give 2-3 stars. It definately tastes "lowfat." I smothered the muffins in choco-peanut butter frosting, and they were better. The second time I used this recipe, I took the advice of some of the other reviewers, and used a spice cake mix instead of chocolate - adding vanilla and nutmeg, and 1/3 cup water. I made the recipe into a 2-layer cake, and cooked it for 35-40 minutes, then left it in longer, with the over turned off. Very moist and delicious! Of course, it was once again covered in frosting. I used caramel frosting in between the layers, then frosted the entire cake with cream cheese frosting. I served it as part of our Thanksgiving desert, and it was a big hit! Thanks for posting, and a BIG thank you to the reviews for the ideas!"
"These are great. I did bake them for about 30 minutes and then put them back in for about another 5. Thanks so much for the great recipe!"
"Does it get any better than just two ingredients and a lot of compliments?! Goodness. Pure Goodness."
"Thanks for a great easy recipe. My daughters loved them!"
