Foodie Tuesday Recipe: 3-Ingredient pumpkin chocolate chip muffins

Welcome back to Foodie Tuesday! 

Today I have a super easy, SUPER delish recipe for you. I almost feel bad calling it a recipe, it's so easy.

Remember how I taught you to make your own pumpkin puree?
Well, in moving I was trying to clean out my freezer and found tons of pumpkin that I had made and frozen last year. I needed to use it up and wasn't sure what to do, so I created this recipe after getting some ideas online!
3-Ingredient Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
Here's what you need:

-2C Pumpkin puree (make your own!)
-1 Cake mix (Carrot or Spice – I used carrot this time and it was awesome.)
-2 handfuls of chocolate chips

  • Mix the cake mix and pumpkin together. Mixture will be pretty thick. Throw in a few handfuls of chocolate chips (just eyeball it!) and mix.
  • Blob the mix into muffin tins (I have used both baking cups, and no baking cups [just spray the tins with cooking spray first] and both times they turned out fine) about 2/3 full.

  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 13-15 minutes. 
    • Be sure to watch them, I am at a high elevation and everyone's ovens bake differently! You want them to be cracked on top and spring back when you touch them. You don't want underdone muffins, but remember they still cook a tiny bit once out of the oven!

  • Cool on a wire rack, and there you go! Delicious and oh-so-easy muffins! It's a great gift for someone, especially since you can brag that you made the pumpkin yourself 🙂

We blessed my daughter this weekend and had a luncheon after. I bought cellophane bags with a coupon from Michaels craft store, made up some cute labels in Gimp, 

stapled each muffin a cute bag,

and arranged them in this wash basin I got from a yard sale.
I forgot to take a picture, but I promise…they looked super cute!
Hey, and since the muffins have pumpkin in them, they are basically healthy, right?
EAT UP.

    The same recipe can be used as cookies too! It is a Weight Watchers recipe and 1 cookie is only 1 point (so they are quite healthy) Same mixing directions just cook them at 350 for 10-12 mins and they are done!
