......and here's www.hungry-girl.com alternate substitutions to get them down to 1 Point making 18 muffins:
(from hungrygirl.com website)
YES... YES... YES! When I first picked up the box of Fiber One Premium Muffin Mix (in yummy Apple Cinnamon!), I was super-excited to see how much fiber was in each serving (5 grams!). But I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't a tiny bit disappointed when I saw the other ingredients called for and the nutritional info for the prepared muffins. Each one ends up having 190 calories and 9 grams of fat (POINTS® value 4*)! That's pretty high for a small muffin made from a boxed mix.
Not sure why the box says to add milk, whole eggs and oil to the mix when there are better options for baking these things.
I tried a few different ways and then figured out the PERFECT recipe.
Just take the mix (IGNORE the box directions) and add 1 cup canned pumpkin, 1 cup water, and 1/2 cup Egg Beaters (or egg whites or some other fat-free liquid egg substitute). Then mix until just blended. Spray a few muffin pans with nonstick spray, and pour the mixture into 18 of the muffin cups. Then bake as directed (for that, you can refer to the box!). The best part is, this recipe makes 18 muffins instead of 12. And each one has just 95 calories & 2g fat and still has close to 4g fiber! These simple switches turn a muffin with 4 Points into a ONE-POINT treat. Craziness!!! Try it! And feel free to use the same recipe to turn other boxed cake and muffin mixes into guilt-free stuff -- exact nutritionals will vary, of course, but I can pretty much guarantee they'll be WAY better than if you added all the stuff called for on the box. Happy baking! www.hungry-girl.com
