    It is possible to replace the white cake mix with something else? I live in The Netherlands and I’ve never heard of it, so I’m afraid I can’t buy it here. However I would like to try these muffins because they look pretty good! And 3 smartpoints for each one is great… ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi, you don’t have any kind of boxed cake mixes? I guess you could add extra flour but it will make the taste slightly different, in these you can taste the cake like texture..

        Ah, you just mean ready-to-go cake mixes? We have that! Guess I interpreted it another way ๐Ÿ™‚ So I’m definitely going to try these next weekend, thanks so much for your reply!

            I made them and they are delicious! Love the taste and they’re sweet enough for me ๐Ÿ™‚ However, I made a mistake to put the mixture into cupcake liners and this didn’t work out very well… Very sticky to the liners, so next time I’ll just spray the cupcake tray and hope they come out unharmed! ๐Ÿ˜‰

            Oh no, sorry that happened… I never use liners, always just a little spray.. Glad you enjoyed them though ๐Ÿ™‚

    I made these a few days ago and they were pretty good. I like my muffins a bit sweeter than these are though. Wondering if substituting mashed bananas for the blueberries would work. Thanks!

      You can always try it ๐Ÿ™‚ let me know if you do and it works out..

    When I put this recipe into my Weight Watchers recipe builder it says the muffins are 2sp not 3, do you know why it may be different?

      Hi Sarah, I don’t use the recipe builder on WW, I find the products are to generic and they can vary by country or such.. I use My Fitness Pal..By all means use what WW App says if thats what you prefer.. I match my ingredients to a T on MFP but I can’t always do that on the WW App..

    Can frozen blueberries be used?

      Yes, however it might change the color ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Could be that now on SP for Weight Watchers the fruit in a recipe does not count, it did on the old Points Plus program.

    What if I don’t have applesauce can I use something else? I’m stuck inside with this blizzard and want to make these so bad haha thanks!

      you could use a little mashed banana.. stay safe!!

    Hi! I can’t do almond milk, do you think unsweetened coconut would be OK, or maybe skim milk?

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle January 25, 2016 at 5:44 pm

      Skim milk is fine ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Reply Andrea March 9, 2016 at 6:35 pm

    Thanks for asking the question about Almond Milk. My son has a nut allergy so I can’t use it. will Skim milk change the points?

      Reply Drizzle March 9, 2016 at 7:57 pm

      Hi, overall no I don’t think it will affect the points per muffin ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Reply Patti April 30, 2016 at 4:30 pm

    I made these this afternoon. They look delicious, but my batch only made 11. Do you think they would still calculate to 3 sp? I am not sure how to figure it out in the recipe builder on the WW site as the Cake Mix is listed in ounces. Not sure if 1/3 cup equals an ounce.

      Hi Patti, I changed my recipe in myfitnesspal to 11 muffins to get the nutritional info and then entered in WW calculator and still got 3SP so all good ๐Ÿ™‚

    Flour – all purpose? or self-rising?

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle August 1, 2016 at 7:06 pm

      I always use all purpose
