"You'll never believe these muffins are light! Made with substitutions that won't take away from taste. They are oh, so yummy. The batter is thick and sticky, so spray muffin papers with non-stick spray." — Brinna

1 (15 ounce) can
1 (1 ounce) package
sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
1 (6 ounce) package
semisweet chocolate chips, divided
I made this without the pudding mix since I didn't have any on hand. I also used chocolate extract (in place of the vanilla) and cut back on the amount of chocolate chips, the results were great! I will make these again.
I used regular instant CHEESECAKE pudding, pumpkin pie spice instead of just cinnamon and instead of chocolate chips, I used Hershey's cinnamon chips. Because I didn't want to dirty two muffin tins, I really loaded my muffin cups up to the brim. Even though they were full, they baked up beautifully without overflowing. Baked at 350*, these were done at 25 minutes. I did have to cover them halfway with foil so they did not burn on top. Thumbs up from my family--they had eight of them gone at breakfast and I think they will have the rest gone by this afternoon.
Wonderful! I just got engaged so I'm trying to make healthier snacks and sweets to prepare for wedding dress shopping. I had pudding mix loose in a container so I just used a tablespoon since several people said it was fine without. I didn't have chocolate chips so I cut up some chocolate bars. I didn't use the full amount of chocolate and I think these would be delicious with or without them. I made them as mini-muffins and they took about 12-14 minutes in my oven. I also made some with liners and some without. Make them! They're awesome!
Amazing!!! Surprisingly healthy yet DELICIOUS!They were all gone in one day! I will definately make these again!
We used half wheat and half white flour, 3/4 C applesauce, no oil, and half a small package of regular vanilla pudding. So so yummy. going in the recipe box. Also for the first time I used a real pumpkin left over from Halloween. I was a little hesitant because it seemed stringy, but was a hit with these muffins.
Funny how a batch of muffins can make mom a early morning hero! These were easy to assemble and quite tasty. I omitted the pudding mix like many others and we had light, fluffy muffins. Next time I might decrease the chocolate chips a bit. This was thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family.
This is my go-to recipe for pumpkin muffins. They are my favorite.Hard to believe they are low fat.I never use the pudding mix and they come out fine. I sprinkle the chips well inside the liner to prevent smearing the chocolate chips when removing the muffins.
I made these muffins exactly as stated, and the result was a little disappointing. They were very dense and moist, so if that's what you are going for, you may love these. I on the other hand was looking for a light and fluffy muffin textured pumpkin treat, so in my case I did not get the results I had hoped for. Also, due to their very dense and batter-like finished texture, I had to bake for an additional 10 minutes! Just for the toothpick to come out clean!
