Pumpkin Spice Muffins Recipe

1 box spice cake mix.

1 can pureed pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix) 15 oz.

1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce (one snack size cup)

8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Optional: 1/2 cup walnuts or 1/2 cut craisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix pumpkin puree and applesauce together.

Add cake mix, mix until smooth.

Note: batter will be thick. It’s okay! It’s supposed to be thick!

Stir in chocolate chips.

Fill muffin tins (lined or unlined and sprayed with cooking spray) 3/4 full.

Bake at 350 for 20-22 minutes until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let cool slightly before removing from tin.

Makes approximately 16 muffins.

Note: These freeze well. Once they cool to room temperature, flash freeze them (place on a cookie sheet in the freezer for an hour) then put them in a Ziplock or other storage container and store in the freezer for up to a month.
