This is an amazing recipe from a lifetime WW member in Madera, California. She’s on the WW Purple plan and came up with this recipe to satisfy her craving for dessert in the evenings. After perfecting the recipe, she very kindly shared it with our workshop. The recipe is at the bottom of this post and as you will see…besides being delicious, the real hook to these muffins is their low, low SmartPoint values!!
Purple Plan ~ 1 Muffin = ZERO Smartpoints
2-4 Muffins = 1 SmartPoint total
Green & Blue Plans ~ 1 Muffin = 1 Smartpoint
If you are in a hurry, just scroll down to the recipe. If you have some time on your hands and would like to hear my completely embarrassing story……read on!
Since we’ve been sheltering in place and I’m not seeing WW members and staff everyday, I have been trying to use WW Connect to stay “connected” to our community. For anyone not familiar, Connect is a social media feature on the WW app. It’s set up very similar to Facebook, so it’s easy to use. The big difference between Connect and typical social media is that it’s only accessible to WW members. There are thousands of people on it and it’s really inspiring. In the past, I haven’t posted often but I really enjoy reading other people’s posts from all over the country.
I’ve gotten so many awesome tips from others who so generously share that I felt I should also try to contribute now that I have the time.
So after making these muffins and being very pleased with their yumminess, I was really excited to share the recipe on Connect. Finally!! I have something to post that people are really going to love! YES!
So, I put it out there for WW members across the US to see……and I accidentally left out the can of crushed pineapple🤦🏻♀️. Apparently when I cut and paste, I cut out the can of crushed pineapple and didn’t realize it. How embarrassing! It’s pretty much a staple in the recipe!
In my defense, I did receive a message from someone who made them sans the pineapple and she kindly said they were still good! I went into Connect and corrected it, but I am not sure where all it has been shared, etc. Like I tell my kids….once it’s on social media, it’s out there for good! Sooooo…if you see a similar recipe that doesn’t call for pineapple…..it’s most likely a mistake! Hahaha! Especially if it is posted by a WW Coach with the username: Rubyruns26.2
That would be me. Oooopppps! Well…..I tried and my intentions were good!
Hope everyone is hanging in there and prioritizing some of this extra time for self care. We all need to be at our best to help each other! A great way to give ourselves a boost is by attending WW virtual workshops. WW members can attend virtual workshops anywhere in the country. So fun to “travel” around with no plane tickets needed!!!
My schedule is below and you’ll find the links to access the workshops I lead in the Fresno and Clovis, California Connect groups😊 Look forward to seeing you soon!
All is well❤️
