Banana Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

How could you go wrong with all of these flavors:  Banana, Pumpkin & Chocolate Chips?  Muffins are an easy grab & go breakfast…don’t make the mistake of purchasing them when you could whip up a batch in no time.  Store bought muffins are made with tons of butter & oil, which are not a good option for a healthy diet . My muffins are made with NO butter or oil (except for cooking spray) however; they are NOT lacking in taste or texture.  I have no problem serving these to my 3 year old son for breakfast or a snack.  Its a well balanced muffin…..fruit, veggies,yogurt & oatmeal!!

This jalapeno cornbread is light, fluffy, sweet & spicy.  Not only does it taste great but it I have made it “skinny”   No oil is used in this recipe.  Well, except for spraying the baking pan to prevent sticking.  How could you go wrong with this quick and easy recipe that is only 2 points + WW & 85 calories per serving  I used my brownie pan to bake these mini cornbreads, this way everyone get the corner piece!  If your shopping for a new brownie pan…click here  That is the one I use and I’m very happy with it 🙂 

**TIP** If you need to make non-jalapeno corn bread for a family member…..(like I do for my son)  Fill one side of the brownie pan with the mixture and then add the jalapeno to the rest of the mixture before pouring into the pan.  OR, just use a small foil loaf pan and take out for anyone that doesn’t like the heat.

SUPERBOWL Special!! Chicken Enchilada Jalapeno Popper

Makes 18 Jalapeno Poppers. Nutrition for 1 Jalapeno Popper: Weight Watchers Points + 2 ~ Calories 99.7 ~ Fat 3.0 g ~ Carbs 13.4 g ~ Fiber 1.3 g ~ Protein 4.9 g

SUPERBOWL SPECIAL!!

NO need to use your “cheat points” with this recipe 🙂

I’ve given Jalapeno Poppers a “make-over” by baking them and using healthy ingredients.  These poppers taste like they are evil & no good for you….but  they are low in WW points; calories, fat and carbs.  These are more of a “mild” popper, if you prefer them spicy add the seeds from the jalapenos into the chicken mixture.

These are perfect for when you are entertaining or watching a game.  These were a great kickoff appetizer while watching the Superbowl!   Enjoy them with guacamole dip, salsa or taco dip.
