Naturally high in vitamin A, pumpkin is a great treat in the fall in winter months. Though these muffins aren't exactly low in calories but they are fairly large and fill you up.
Prepare yourself to only get to try one or two if you live with others though - they will be gone before you know it!

These great bran muffins are a favorite of mine. With a hint of banana and soft raisins, they make a great treat. Try warmed in the microwave with I Can't Believe It's No Butter Spray for a perfect breakfast or snack. No white sugar or eggs and plenty of room for modifications.
Get all that sweet & salty peanut butter flavor in a low calorie spread.
