Oh, fall...with all your amazing flavors! 
I'm sometimes a little too tempted this time of the year. Between lattes and sweets and warm comfort foods, healthy eating this time of the year can be a challenge.

I love stocking my kitchen with lots of easy low-point treats and snacks that I can easily grab and not feel like I'm missing out on anything seasonal.

And these babies are perfect for that easy fix.

Crazy how few ingredients are in these, right?

Combine the water, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice until well mixed. Add the cake mix and beat with mixer until everything is combined. Spoon batter evenly into 24 prepared muffin cups. 

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, or until done {can take up to 25 minutes, depending on your oven}.

  2. I would never have thought of using a cake mix as a base. Way easier than measuring flour etc.

  5. These look fantastic! Thank you so much! Any excuse to eat pumpkin sounds good to me, especially if they are "skinny!"

  7. Love it. I've made something like this before, but did not use water - just the cake mix and pumpkin. It's also great with a spice cake mix! I'm visiting from the It's Overflowing link party.

  9. I just made these and they are delicious! I added 2 Tbsp of chia seeds for the added fiber/nutrition along with an additional 1/8 c water, just to make sure the chia seeds didn't soak up too moisture and leave me with drier muffins. I have never baked with pumpkin or chia before so I'm not sure if the additional water is the culprit to my dilemma or if it is just the way pumpkin bakes, but the muffins didn't seem cooked all the way through. I had them in the 350 degree convection for about 35 minutes! Any ideas if the additional water is the issue for this, or is it just how baked goods end up when using pumpkin?? Regardless, they are amazing and I just might end up eating the whole batch for dinner! Thanks! :)

  10. These may be yummy and "skinny" but cake mix is not healthy.

  11. I've enjoyed making this recipe many times and would like to share with others. I love your downloadable recipe card--can you specify on it what size pumpkin you use in case I forget to mention to those I share it with? Thanks!
