Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Every fall I love making pumpkin muffins. I know that there are tons of pumpkin muffin recipes out there and that most require tons of ingredients. However, for something like this I really don’t want to take a lot of my time to make them. My recipe is super quick, super easy and super yummy. It is great for when you need a treat to take to work with you or need to make up something for a family gathering. And lets face it, tis the season for pumpkin spice everything right!! I also used this recipe when I was training on the day of my competitions. I would eat them the morning of my show and right before I would go on stage.

– 1 Box Spice Cake Mix (get whatever brand of cake mix you like. I usually go for the one that is on sale.)
– 15 oz can of pure pumpkin (what you use for pumpkin pies)
– About a half of a bag of mini chocolate chips or you could add walnuts, etc. (all optional)
mix      pumpkin    chips

Now all you do is mix it all together. Really get the pumpkin filling mixed into the cake mix. It will be kind of thick but that is ok.final-mix

Lastly, add in your chocolate chips.

Scoop into muffin baking cups with a 1 tsp ice cream scoop. I put 2 scoops in each.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until you can poke into a muffin with a toothpick and it comes out clean. (I always look at the back of the cake mix to see how long it says to cook cupcakes)

And that is it. Quick, easy and simple to make. Please let me know what you think!!!
