Yes, you read that right. Two ingredients — no eggs, no oil, and no butter — and about 5 minutes of prep! These easy Pumpkin Muffins are made with a box of cake mix and a can of pumpkin for a lighter way to satisfy your pumpkin spice cravings!
I definitely cannot take credit for this easy pumpkin muffin recipe, since it seems to be a fairly well-known way of “hacking” a boxed cake mix. That said, I’m still excited about these sweet, tasty treats that my boys have been enjoying since they were toddlers!
The healthy pumpkin muffins are a perfect breakfast or snack for kids (or for adults), since they taste great and still manage to sneak in some extra veggies. Keep these two ingredients on hand, because you never know when a baking — or muffin — mood will strike!
1 box spice cake mix
1 (15-ounce) can pure pumpkin puree
Mix in 1/2 cup raisins or chopped nuts if desired.
Simply mix the pumpkin and the spice cake mix powder together and drop by heaping tablespoons into greased muffin cups.
Bake at 350 18-22 minutes or until a knife comes out clean
