Easy 2 Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins (with a Gluten Free Option)

A few posts back, I posted one of my all time favorite recipes for Pumpkin Muffins.  Since then, my daughter told me about a recipe she had seen online for "2 Ingredient Muffins."   It's so easy.  And they actually taste good. (Not as good as my recipe with the fat, of course! But still very good.)

So, if you want a quick and simple fall treat, these should make you happy.

Here's the "recipe"



1 Box Spice Cake Mix  or Gluten-Free Option - I used Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix instead of spice cake and added my own cinnamon and cloves, about 1/2 teaspoon each. You could also use Pumpkin Pie spice.

1 Can Pumpkin (2 cups)  NOT pumpkin pie filling


Combine ingredients (the batter will be THICK), and spoon into greased and floured (or spray with Baker's Joy)  cupcake pan or specialty treats pan  (this one is perfect for fall) until about 2/3 full.  (If you are using a specialty pan with a lot of little crevices, like the one I've shared here, be sure to spread the oil or Baker's Joy into the crevices, so that the muffin will come out easily.)  Bake at 350 degrees. In my oven, regular size muffins are done in about 17 minutes, but check a bit before that, as ovens vary.

I made a few with paper baking cups in a regular cupcake pan, but the muffins stuck to the paper, so I preferred not to use them for the rest.  Of course, you could probably spritz the paper baking cups with a little cooking spray. They came out great when I just sprayed the cupcake pan with Baker's Joy.


 

Give them a try and let me know how you like them.

  2. They look delicious! I try to reduce fat by replacing some or all of the oil with applesauce in a recipe. I'll have to pass this on to my friend who needs gluten free recipes. Thanks! Happy Holidays!
