In keeping with my pumpkin theme (into November), today I’m sharing a recipe for 2 Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Muffins. Recipes like this are all over Pinterest these days (as I well know from my 2 week-on-the-couch-pinning-frenzy). This is THE EASIEST recipe ever – not even kidding!!! 2 ingredients, that’s it! I love recipes like this, and I know Grandma would have, too – they’re so interesting. Who figures these things out? Someone with unlimited funds and an awful lot of time on their hands? Maybe it’s not really that hard to do. Who cares?! The point is – they’re delicious! This particular recipe came from a member on Weight Watchers Connect (their Facebook type thing on the app), so it’s a bit healthier than most. There is some sugar from the mix, but no fat because you use the pumpkin puree instead. Simple dimple.
Here is the recipe as I made it:
2 Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Muffins
1 box of cake mix (I used Spice Cake Mix)
1 15 ounce can of pumpkin puree
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
I mean seriously, you just mix the cake mix and the pumpkin puree – done. I’m sure you could add raisins or chopped apples or nuts to these, too.
This makes a nice, thick batter. Into the liners and that’s it.
I tried to get 24 muffins out of this, but I only got 22. Even though I want to be good and only have 1 at a time, when you make them this small, that’s really hard!
A little secret about these muffins – try to wait and eat them the next day. They come out of the liners better and the flavor is better.
These little hummers are delicious. They’re spicy and pumpkin-y and so, so good!
I just can’t believe how ridiculous these are: ridiculously easy, ridiculously good, ridiculously perfect for this time of year! They’re perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. Make up a batch today – no, wait – make a double batch because they’re going to go fast and you’re just going to have to make more anyway.
