I’ll share my secret recipe for Pumpkin-Spice Muffins.
It’s super simple, so much so it can barely be called a recipe.
They’re moist, flavorful, and you can whip some up in a jiffy.
…They only take 2 ingredients.
Mix 2 ingredients together and bake.
You do not have to add and water, oil, or eggs to the cake mix. Just the canned pumpkin. Then cook as directed on the box.
Quick Tip: The batter is pretty thick… so before you put the muffins in the oven, wet you finger tip and push down the spikes in the batter. That way your pumpkin-spice muffins wont have burnt peaks.
An added bonus is that pumpkin is full of fiber and nutrients, so the muffins are a healthy alturnative to many morning pastrys you might come across. (I actually came across this recipe many years ago on a Weight Watchers message board).
I use this same recipe except I add 1 small serving container of unsweetened applesauce to lighten it up a bit. I’ve also added sliced almonds and chopped pecans for some variety. I mean you can never go wrong with pumpkin!
Your add-in ideas sound delicious!
