Carrot Cake Weight Watchers Muffins (1 Points Plus Value)

My friend Jennifer gave me a recipe for her lemon Weight Watchers muffins, but I hadn’t ever made them. Lemon was never my thing. But her muffin recipe was simple. You can combine any cake mix and any yogurt. I had a box of carrot cake mix in the pantry because it’s Pete’s favorite. But we were never going to eat a cake just the two of us, so I left it for a while.

And then I thought about this recipe.

Carrot cake Weight Watchers muffins sounded perfect. And they were. I made them and we had them for breakfast every day until they were done. They were absolutely delicious (and made me so excited to know I have a box of butter pecan cake mix in the cabinet too. I’m making those next).

Carrot Cake Weight Watchers Muffins (1 Points Plus Value)

What You’ll Need:

  • One box carrot cake mix
  • One 5.3oz cup of Yoplait 100 Greek yogurt (vanilla)
  • One cup water

What You’ll Do:

Pre-heat the oven to 350.

Carrot Cake Muffins

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.

Carrot Cake Muffins

Spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Fill each cavity halfway.

Weight Watchers Carrot Cake Muffins Only 1 Points Plus Value each!! Quick and easy too only three ingredients!

Bake for about 10 minutes. The carrot cake muffins will be light and fluffy.

The batter makes 48 muffins, so you’ll either want two mini muffin pans or you’ll have to bake two batches.

Just a small note, since this recipe is almost two years old. At the time, this was 1 Weight Watchers Point. The points system has changed since then. Some new members are using this point system still and others are using Points Plus. I would suggest you double check with your current system before adding this to your day.

    I really love this recipe. So often I want something that will just hit the spot but do not want the calories. This will work for those times.

      It’s my husband’s favorite too, so he loves these. Be sure to let me know if you make them.

    Wow! These do look easy and a cake mix makes anything taste good. I can’t believe they are only one point. Nice!

    Can you make normal sized muffins using a cupcake pan and cupcake liners? I don’t have a mini pan. thank you.

    1. drugstore diva lisa

      October 7, 2015 at 2:20 pm

      Yes Pam, you can. They just will be larger so they won’t be one Weight Watchers point anymore.

    Would a regular size be 3 points? Or 4

    1. drugstore diva lisa

      November 12, 2015 at 8:29 pm

      Mini muffins are about 1/3 the size of regular muffins, so I would say a regular one would be 3 points.

    Do you know how many smart points this is?

    Thank you so much for this recipe!
    Do you happen to know how many Smart Points these are since they changed the calculation?

      I don’t Kelly (I actually didn’t even know they changed!).

    I’m making these right now!! I used a white cake mix and blueberry greek yogurt, plus I added about 1 cup of fresh blueberries. They smell amazing!

    1. Amie

      February 16, 2016 at 11:45 am

      I’m going to try your recipe Alyssa! Would they be 1 smart point per mini muffin? Thanks :)

      1. Alyssa

        February 17, 2016 at 5:55 am

        I’m not sure about the smart points. I still follow points plus. Sorry.

    These are great! I added a small can of crushed pineapple in its own juice, very well drained! It took just a little longer with the pineapple, but loved the outcome.

    When you say one cup yogurt, do you mean the actual measuring cup, or the one serving size container package of yogurt?

    1. drugstore diva lisa

      April 26, 2016 at 11:27 am

      Tiffany, it’s one 5.3oz. container.

    I am making these now. I did weight my ingredients to make sure they were spot on and I had 430 grams of mix and 139 grams of the yogurt. Both did not weigh what their containers state, so I am glad I weighed. Anyhow, I put in for 48 servings and got 2 smart points. That could change depending on how many I end up with.

    I am baking some lemon muffins now. Carrot cake are up next. :) My lemon cake mix was 7 smart points per serving (unprepared) with 10 servings in the box. 3 smart points for my plain greek yogurt. I made 14 regular sized muffins. So mine are 5 smart points each. Still not too bad!

    For everyone asking about the new points ptogram,you can gigure the points by going to receipe builder adding the ingredients and the amount of each and it will figure it out for you. Hope this helps.

    Do these muffins freeze well? The quantity is too large for just the two of us.

    1. drugstore diva lisa

      September 14, 2016 at 11:55 pm

      Yup! We have frozen them no problem.

    Has anyone figured out the new Smart Points value?
    If yes, please share. Thanks.

    OMG… I made these the other night and they are so delicious, my husband wants me to make some chocolate ones, does anyone know how many points that would be?

    1. drugstore diva lisa

      December 1, 2016 at 9:38 am

      I’ve made them with a chocolate cake mix and they were the same points.

  24. Angie

    December 19, 2016 at 9:48 pm

    So I made the chocolate ones tonight and I had to pop my husband’s hands cause he kept eating them… I think it’s safe to say he loves tgem. Can you tell me how to figure the points up?

    Hey! Could we bake this batter in a 9×9 cake pan? Don’t have a muffin tray :(

    1. drugstore diva lisa

      January 5, 2017 at 11:33 am

      The batter would definitely work that way, I just wouldn’t know the point value.

      1. Kayla

        January 6, 2017 at 8:07 pm

        If Ema cuts the cake into 7 sections one way and 7 sections the other, perpendicular way, each individual square should be about the same points value as a mini-muffin. Cutting it this way will give her 49 squares.
