  1. 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… πŸ™‚

      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 πŸ™‚ So I’m definitely going to try these next weekend, thanks so much for your reply!

        • Drizzle Reply

          Yay! Glad you have it.. Hope you enjoy them πŸ™‚

          • I made them and they are delicious! Love the taste and they’re sweet enough for me πŸ™‚ 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! πŸ˜‰

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

  2. 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 πŸ™‚ let me know if you do and it works out..

  3. 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..

    • I have the WW app but I don’t know how to find the recipe builder.

      • Drizzle Reply

        hit your plus button, then “my foods” then “recipes” and then hit “create” top right corner

    • 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.

  4. 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!

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

  6. 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?

    • Drizzle Reply

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

  7. 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 πŸ™‚

  8. Hi, you say you use My Fitness Pal to determine what WW points are? How do you do that? I do not see anywhere that it says what the WW points are. Thanks you so much if you can inform me.

    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.

      Hi Sharon, I use MFP to build the recipe and get the nutritional info as you can’t do that on the WW App, you can create the recipe but it only gives you a point value not the calories etc and I need that for those that might be counting calories, I use 3 methods to determine my points, MFP, WW App and simple math on paper per ingredient
