These cupcakes are so yummy and delicious. It is hard to believe they are only 3 Points+ each!  Even my hubby loves these, and he is not trying to lose weight.   😀

I didn’t take step by step photos because I was in a hurry today. I will get more photos the next time I make these, but the recipe is provided for you below! (This started as a Hungry Girl recipe that I tweaked a bit – FYI!)

Fall in love with these low calorie pumpkin cream cheese cupcakes!!
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 24 cupcakes
For Icing:
  • ¾ cup fat free cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup fat free Cool Whip, thawed
For Cupcakes:
  • 1 box spice cake mix (Duncan Hines Signature Moist)
  • 2 cups canned pure pumpkin
  • ⅔ cup fat free liquid egg substitute
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
For Icing:
  1. Combine the cream cheese, sugar, and cinnamon. Stir until smooth.
  2. Add cool whip and stir until combined.
  3. Cover and refrigerate the icing until needed.
For Cupcakes:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put foil baking cups in your muffin pans (or spray with nonstick spray).
  3. In a large bowl, combine all cupcake ingredients and mix until mostly smooth.
  4. Evenly distribute batter among the cups of the muffin pan. Fill each one about ½ to ⅔ of the way full to start. BATTER WILL BE VERY THICK.
  5. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 16-18 minutes.
  6. Let cool completely, about 10 minutes in the pan and 25 minutes out of the pan.
  7. Spread cupcakes with icing.
3 Points+

The batter is so thick that I had to use two spoons - 1 to scoop and 1 to scrape into the muffin tin. The next time I make them I will probably add ½ cup water to make them a bit thinner. The flavor is AMAZING....I just want to make it easier to fill the muffin tins!
