100 cal Pumpkin Spice Muffins




As soon as September hits, I'm in Autumn mode, I don't care what the temperature hits. And fall to me means pumpkin. Pumpkin everything. Which I love.

So I totally winged this recipe this afternoon and surprised myself when it worked. And by worked I mean these muffins are delish!

Not only are they delicious, they are only 100 calories EACH. So, help yourself to seconds. Oh, and did I mention? There are only THREE ingredients!

Ingredients:
1 can of pure pumpkin (small, 15 oz)
1 egg (OPTIONAL!)
1 box of spice cake mix

Let's get to baking:
Preheat oven to 325. Line muffin pan with muffin liners. Combine the three ingredients well and distribute into pan (I got 18 muffins out of the recipe.) You can sprinkle a little more cinnamon and sugar on top before baking if you'd like. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Yes, that's it. Easiest recipe EVER. You could even add cream cheese frosting and turn them into semi-healthy cupcakes.

Enjoy!

  3. I make these all the time. Try adding 1/4 cup chopped walnuts and dried cranberries.

  4. So chances are i won't eat all 18 within a week. Is it possible to make these last longer (like freezing them or something along that line)?

  5. Make these all the time, but there's no need to add an egg. I do add 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice. They freeze great!

  6. Hi everyone! Thanks for the comments. I think these would be fine to freeze-- we just eat them all before we get the chance! And I've made these without the egg, but I just like how they hold together a little better with one!

  12. Made these last night.. sooo good!! I added chocolate chips to the mix and it worked out great. I also put the batter in a baking dish and then cut them like brownies when they were done cooking. Everyone loved them! Thanks!!

  13. Can I use Pumpkin Pie filling or does it need to be pure pumpkin? Thanks!

  14. My husband and I loved this simple recipe and when we shared it with our family and friends, they agreed - it's so good! I shared it on my blog, http://rachelinraleigh.com, yesterday, - Flavors of Fall : Pumpkin Spice Muffins. Thank you!

  15. My kids love these! Obviously with frosting it will be more calories, but I use a vanilla cake mix and have calculated them at 104 calories each. Not sure how many WW points that is though, sorry.

  16. Do you add all the ingredients listed on the cake mix? I saw above were you mentioned egg.

    1. No need! Really you can just use the pumpkin and the mix, the egg fluffs them up a little more I think!

  17. Great comments, I got a lot of great ideas for my own add-ins. I did end up baking them for 23 min. rather than 15. Excellent recipe and the perfect way to kick off fall.
