  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 1 dozen 1x


It only takes three ingredients to make these delicious muffins!  There’s a little bite of autumn in each and every one.


  • 1 box of Spice Cake Mix
  • 1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin (I use Libby’s)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a 12-count muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix with canned pumpkin and work it with a spoon.  The batter will be pretty thick.  Once the batter has been combined, stir in your chocolate chips.
  4. Fill your muffin liners 2/3 of the way full and bake about 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan 5 minutes before removing.


Let’s be honest here…spread some store bought cream cheese frosting on these babies and you have yourself a cupcake.  No oil, no eggs, no guilt, right?  After they cool, you can also pop them in the freezer inside a freezer bag and then just remove them on busy mornings.  About 30 seconds in the microwave and breakfast is ready to go.  One more little tip, substitute chocolate chips with either butterscotch or cinnamon for a whole new taste experience!
