Weight Watchers Chocolate Cupcakes

45 mins (prep 10, cooking 35)
3 ingredients

When I attended my first weight watchers meeting and the leader shared this recipe, my first thought was "right!". There was no way I was going to believe this was good, AND low in points. Eventually I had to try it though. Now my DH who wants nothing to do with pumpkin OR lite anything, had a fit over these cupcakes. Of course he still doesn't know the truth and I'm not about to tell him! (weight watchers points = 1) I did try making it as a cake in a 9-13 pan and the center stays way too moist, so I recommend the muffin method. Perfect for when nothing will do but chocolate! UPDATE: One reviewer suggested using 1/4 cup of water to get a more cake-like consistency and it works great. 1/2 cup of water will produce a denser and richer texture. Whatever you choose, enjoy!
