This recipe for pumpkin muffins is really stupid easy. The recipe makes 24 muffins/cupcakes and the base which is cake mix and canned pumpkin is only 3 points. If you add the chocolate chips the total will be 4 points. Just about every Fall I whip up a couple of batches of these easy muffins.
I love muffins. Sometimes, I will make a batch of muffins to take to work for breakfast. I get sick of eating granola bars most of the time. Tried oatmeal, that gets boring too. But muffins, oh my there are so many different kinds you can make! I found another muffin recipe on Cooking Light's website for Raspberry Cream Cheese muffins. Next week that will be my breakfast in the morning!
Only 3 Ingredients!
If you have been following me on Instagram lately, I have been posting recipes you can make with a box of cake mix (15.25oz) and 1 150z can of pumpkin. People loved it! This recipe is simple and only requires 3 ingredients. The chocolate chips are optional of course.
Check out my post on what you all can make using a box of cake mix and can of pumpkin.
Is cake mix bad for you?
If you look on the back of a box of cake mix, some of the ingredients might surprise you. Some people think that boxed and canned food is full of chemicals and extra junk in them and this is not allowed for 2 ingredient recipes. Well guess what, those people just love to demonize food and we do not eat food like this in our everyday life and so to me. It is ok to have boxed cake mix every now and then. Everything in moderation!
How to Make Pumpkin Muffins
Mix all these 3 ingredients together in a bowl. Follow the instructions for what the back of the box says for cooking time on muffins or cupcakes. Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners and scoop the batter into each cupcake liner.
Bake at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes.
The muffins will be done when you insert a toothpick into the muffin and it comes out clean.
CAN I USE SUGAR-FREE CAKE MIX?
Yes, you can but from what people are telling me on Instagram there is not a sugar-free spice cake mix flavor out there. You can, however, use yellow or chocolate sugar-free cake mix. Please use your recipe builder to figure out the points. I’m not a fan of sugar-free cake mix. The muffin batter with chocolate chips will be 3 points.
You can also use sugar-free chocolate chips as well!
HOW TO STORE MUFFINS?
Whenever I make a batch of these muffins, I will only make half of the recipe at a time so I am not wasting a whole lot of muffins before they start getting bad in the fridge.
