I was inspired by my pumpkin banana greek yogurt muffins that seem to be a big hit to create another equally delicious low point pumpkin muffin, and these cream cheese ones do not disappoint! I think I like them even more 😉 I actually shared these at my weekly weight watchers meeting and they were a hit.. The cream cheese swirl topping is so yummy and at only 3 freestyle smart points they make a great snack, dessert or breakfast.
