Cheater-Cheater-Pumpkin-Eater Mini Muffins

When the leaves turn orange and its jacket weather I start craving pumpkin and cinnamon like nobody’s business!  So, pumpkin muffins recently exited my oven.  These are pretty much the easiest muffins in the world, you cheat by starting with a box cake mix.  With just four, count’em four, ingredients these are super simple!

Here’s the How-To..


  • Box of cake mix (I used Betty Crocker Gluten-Free Yellow Cake Mix)
  • 1 Can of Pumpkin
  • 2 tsp of Vanilla Extract (GF vanilla if you need it completely gluten-free)
  • A couple of dashes of Cinnamon (sorry, I didn’t measure)

Just mix all the ingredients together!

The batter will be a fun orange color, which kiddos will probably enjoy.

Spoon the batter into a mini muffin pan and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-18 minutes.

They aren’t the prettiest of muffins but they are tasty and moist.  This recipe makes 36 mini muffins at a mere 50 calories a muffin!
