Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins- Weight Watchers Style!

My DS decided this afternoon that he would like to make Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread.  I absolutely LOVE , so we went and found a recipe with a four-and-a-half star rating and he got started.  Since we had big cans of pumpkin and he only needed half the can, I thought it would be fun to try a Weight Watchers friendly version (I am on week 3. . . 8.6 pounds down. . .woot!).  We were fully prepared to throw out our creations if they were nasty, but they weren't!  In fact, my DH thought they were BETTER than the regular version!  Go figure!!!

Here's our version:

15 oz pumpkin
2 1/2 C Splenda
2 single servings of no sugar applesauce
2/3 C water
3 eggs
2 3/4 C whole wheat flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 C chocolate chips (mini might have been better)

Mix everything together and fill muffin cups about 2/3 full.  Bake at 350 F for about 20 minutes.  You will want to bag them up when they cool so that they don't dry out.  This made 24 muffins.

PointsPlus Value. . . 3  (actually 2.6. . . so have two and don't feel too guilty!)
