I found these on clearance at my supermarket. I think I know why! They are just o.k. A little on the dry side and not much staying power. I think you're supposed to microwave them, but I don't know that it would have made a huge difference. I do think they would be nice crumbled on top of some yogurt, oatmeal or ice cream, though. Each muffin bar has 140 cal., 3.5 gr. fat and 4 gr. fiber, but only 2 gr. protein. An o.k. 2 POINT breakfast...
For dessert, I tried a recipe that my friend, Donna sent to me. She just started WW in March and has already lost nearly 20 lbs.!!! You go, Donna!!! The recipe is for Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Orange Glaze. Here's what you'll need:
- 1 lb., 2.25 oz. box of spice cake mix
- 15 oz. canned pumpkin
- 1/2 c. egg substitute
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine ingredients in bowl. Beat with a mixer on low until well blended. Then, beat on medium for 2 minutes. Divide evenly among muffin tins lined with paper baking cups. Bake for 18 minutes. Let cool completely.
For the orange glaze, combine 1 cup sifted powdered sugar with 1/4 tsp. grated orange rind and 2 tbsp. orange juice. Dip cupcake tops in orange glaze.
This makes 24 cupcakes at 2 POINTS each.
I ate mine al fresco with some new reading material...
