Gotta give credit where credit is due - this pin came from Food.com.

My Version - Delish Pumpkin Muffins

Tomorrow is October 1st which means it is Pumpkin Season!!!  I could eat pumpkin anything...soup, pie, muffins, bread, dip, cake...whatever!  So I had to bust out this recipe for my last Pinterest Day Challenge (I'm totally doing the happy dance right now).  Muffins tend to be pretty high calorie so when I found this recipe I was so excited to try it.  These are 97 calories each :)  And for comparison - Starbucks pumpkin bread 390 calories, Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Muffin 600 calories, Panera Bread Pumpkin Muffins 590 calories.

Here is what you need:
  • 1 box Spice Cake Mix 
  • 1 can Pumpkin Puree (not pie filling)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice (bonus recipe below)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Mix everything in a bowl...yep it's that easy.

Spray your pan with cooking spray or use cupcake liners.  Fill your muffin tin about 3/4 of the way full and bake for 15 minutes (mini's) or 25 minutes (normal).  I do both because Addi likes the mini's.

Here is the final product...these are super yummy and last Addi and I all week for breakfast.  She loves them too and thinks they are "cupcakes."  I love them with a good cup of coffee :)

To make your own Pumpkin Pie Spice, combine:

  • 2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
I am super frugal and had all this in my pantry...to buy it at the store is $4.15 for a small container of it.
