Best (and Easiest) Muffins EVER

Preheat oven to 375.

Mix together:
  • 1 box cake mix (yellow, spice, carrot, chocolate)
  • 1 can pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix)

Mix well. The batter will be thick. Spoon into muffin pans that have been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Mini-muffins bake in about 7 minutes. Regular size muffins take a bit longer.

Tip: The Pampered Chef sells "Sweet Cinnamon Sprinkle" that we sprinkle over the tops of the batter. It gives the muffins a streusel like texture without the calories of traditional streusel.

Yep. That's it! Low fat, moderate calories, high in fiber. And the kids like 'em too (at least the chocolate version!)

The flavor cake mix you choose will determine the flavor of your muffins. Our favorites are carrot and chocolate. There are tons of variations to this recipe; mini chocolate chips, nuts, etc. Just be creative and enjoy!
