Carrot Pumpkin Muffins

Remember back in the day when the 2 pt. Weight Watchers Pumpkin Muffin recipe was the best thing on earth?

If I remember correctly it called for a spice cake mix, 1 cup of water and a 15 oz. can of 100% pure pumpkin. Well, that is kind of what I did here.

The texture of those muffins were more of a bread pudding rather than a muffin. So, my plan with these was to create a more muffin like texture and here is the ingredients that I used:

Spice Cake Mix
15 oz. Pumpkin
2 cups carrot, grated
4 egg whites

I stirred all the ingredients together until just combined. Then baked for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

The verdict:

Same ol' WW muffin :-/

The texture is still more like a bread pudding and that isn't necessarily a bad thing...just not what I was hoping for. They still tasted great and are just a tad more firm than the original. My son can easily take them in his lunch.

I don't know if mine is the same is yours but mine was a spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin then you could add 1 cup of chocolate chips too. Man I love those things!
