They are if you leave out the chocolate chips. If you do just the cake mix and pumpkin puree then they are the weight watcher ingredients you might have heard about.

Can I Use Pumpkin Pie Mix Instead of Pumpkin Puree
No, you can’t. You have to use pumpkin puree out of a can or the recipe will not turn out properly. You can find the pumpkin puree in the baking aisle most of the time. I used a 15 0z can.
Can I Use Homemade Pumpkin Puree Instead of Canned
Yes! Just make sure if your homemade puree is runny that you try to drain off any extra liquid it might be producing. If you don’t it could be too runny and make the recipe not turn out properly.
I mean, who doesn’t love a delicious chocolate muffin?!
Why Is My Pumpkin Chocolate Muffin Batter Thick
This batter is a lot thicker in texture compared to a regular muffin batter. So if you notice that don’t be alarmed. Just do your best to mix it up and then spoon into muffin tins to bake.
Variations For Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins
- Add a dusting of powdered sugar on top
