Yum-Yum Brownie Muffins
|This is absolute low fat chocolate heaven...|
Tonight, for dessert, I am making "Hungry Girl's" Yum-Yum Brownie Muffins....they are awesome, low in fat and have only 2 ingredients....YES, your eyes did not deceive you...TWO....However, in order to "make them my own", and improve (ever so slightly) on perfection...I like to sprinkle on a 3rd ingredient (mini-chocolate chips).
So, this is your shopping list: 1) Devil's Food Cake mix; 2) 15-oz can of Libby's pure pumpkin...that's it!!! But, if you want to make them like I do, your last ingredient is: 3) mini-chocolate chips -- it is as easy as "one - two" OR "one - two - three"...you decide. These muffins are moist, chocolatey, delicious and only "taste" sinful. The recipe is below.
***(1 Muffin = 181 calories, 3.5g fat, 37g carbs, 2g fiber, 2g protein) + however many mini-chips you decide to add -- I add about 1 teaspoon to the top of each muffin
Ingredients & Directions
1 box devil's food cake mix (I prefer Duncan Hines)
1 15-oz can solid pack pumpkin (I prefer Libby's)
Mini Chocolate Chips (Nestle) -- optional to top the muffins with before baking
Mix the two ingredients together. (Do NOT add anything else that may be mentioned on the box, such as eggs, oil, or water.) The mixture will be very thick and you'll swear that it will never mix together and will be tempted to add in other things to make the batter smoother....DO NOT DO THIS OR IT WILL RUIN THEM!
Place the batter into muffin tins lined with paper or foil liners (I prefer the foil because it keeps them moist). I also like to use a spring-loaded ice cream scoop to move the batter evenly to the tins, or you can spray tins with non-stick spray. Optional: Sprinkle each muffin with approximately 1 teaspoon of mini chips. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Makes 12 regular muffins.
