This spice cake mix and pumpkin muffin recipe has been all over the Weight Watchers message boards for a while now. I added the egg and water per some of the suggestions and also added more spices to spruce it up even more. And then I split the recipe in half and added mini semisweet chocolate chips to half of the batter. For a low point dessert these are not bad. Of course, if you are like me you will eat too many which negates the low point aspect. And we ate these too fast to even bother topping with a maple or cream cheese frosting.
