2 Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Muffins


Made with just a box of spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin puree!

You know it’s fall when you start looking for easy pumpkin recipes. I’m not sure if I would consider these muffins to be a dessert or a healthy treat (I mean they are full of pumpkin which is a vegetable, right?). Either way, the great thing about these simple cake mix muffins is that they only require 2 ingredients yet they are super moist and yummy.

You can also additionally flavor them with chopped pecans, raisins or chocolate chips. Up to you! I personally like to slather them with cream cheese while they are still warm. I have to resist eating them all in one sitting. Even your kids will love this easy fall pumpkin snack!

You’ll get all the pumpkin spice you need in this one little treat.
