Banana Pumpkin Spice Muffins for a mere 2 Points Plus

Have you ever had a pile of brown bananas sitting on your counter and wanted to do something with them, but didn't necessarily have the time? Well, you're in luck, because just the other day these beauties were staring me in the face. I was hungry, I was craving something delicious, and I had a few extra minutes to make something.  But, I didn't want to spend a lot of my "points plus" on just anything. 

So, I grabbed a box of Betty Crocker Spice Cake Mix and a can of Libby's 100% Pumpkin.  

I dumped all three ingredients into a bowl and mixed until the mush appeared smooth.

Then, I slowly poured the mixture into each of the baking cups and placed the cupcake tin in the 350 degree Fahrenheit oven. 

After about 25 minutes I pulled the Banana Pumpkin Spice Muffins out of the oven, let them cool for a few more minutes, sprayed a little I can't believe it's not Butter on them and devoured the yumminess! 

These yummy muffins rock because the girls & hubster LOVE them, they take about 40 minutes from beginning to end to make, and they only cost 2 "points plus" each! 

For all my fellow WW followers...this recipe will yield you 24 good size muffins. The total mixture has 19.75 grams of FAT, 451.5 grams of CARBS, 17.5 grams of FIBER, and 48 grams of PROTEIN. Thus, when divided into 24, each muffin has 0.83 grams of FAT, 18.8 grams of CARBS, 0.7 grams of FIBER, and 2 grams of PROTEIN making them only 2 "points plus!"


  1. How many bananas did you use and were they small, medium, or large?

  3. Have you tried to do Caramel Cake mix with shredded apples and apple sauce? I loved these muffins and it got me thinking what other combinations might work! Let me know if you've tried it with apples and applesauce and what the results were.

  4. New to your site and return visitor to WW. Do you need to add water to these muffins or just make them with the three ingredients listed?

  5. What size is the can of pumpkin√Č

  6. Is the pp value for a regular sized muffin or a mini-muffin? It looked like you were using a mini-muffin tin in your pictures so I wanted to make sure :-)

  7. Oh my, these look so great! Thank you!!

  8. Can you use applesauce instead of pumpkin filling?

  9. Love this! Thank you!

  10. OMG these are AMAZING!!!! Thanks for the recipe

  11. would you have less points if using the sugar free spice cake mix?
