2-Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins

Just had to share this recipe link: 2-Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins. Hard to believe, but yes, there are only two ingredients -- a can of pumpkin and a spice cake mix! Nothing else. If you grow and cook your own pureed pumpkin, use 2 cups of it, as that's about how much is in a can of pumpkin. I did sprinkle some cinnamon chips on top of my muffins, as I had a few of those to use up. They would also be good with chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or cinnamon-sugar on top. I was only able to make a dozen muffins from the recipe, which stated it would yield 15. We liked these a lot. They are flavorful and nice and moist. Not quite as good as a from-scratch pumpkin muffin, but very tasty!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
