Lately I have been experimenting with healthy dessert recipes that I have been finding on Pinterest. It's amazing the things you can find on there, isn't it?
The best part about the recipes I have been finding is that they are quick and super easy. This recipe, for example, has two ingredients total. The original post I found was on a blog called Sweet Verbena and it called for using either a yellow cake mix or devil's food cake mix. First I made this recipe using devil's food cake mix and the muffins turned out delicious. Weirdly enough you can't taste the pumpkin in them at all.
Next, I found the same recipe with a twist on a site called Meg's Every Day Indulgence. She followed the same two ingredient instructions but used spice cake mix instead. I thought these were even better than the chocolate muffins, which hardly seemed possible since chocolate is my all-time favorite flavor. But there was something about the spice muffins that made them that much more amazing.
Here is the recipe...if you can actually call it a recipe when it's so simple!
Two Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins
1 15 oz. can of pumpkin
1 boxed cake mix of your choice (yellow, devil's food, spice, etc.)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Dump the cake mix and pumpkin in a bowl and mix together. Put batter into a paper-lined muffin tin and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Makes 12 muffins.
Note: If the batter seems too thick you can thin it out with a little bit of milk, which I did for the chocolate muffins but skipped for the spice muffins. I liked them better with just the two ingredients.
Next Thursday I'll be sharing another easy recipe that only has three ingredients. Stay tuned for more!
