2 Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Treats

2 ingredient Pumpkin Spice MuffinsSimply substituting a can of pure pumpkin for the oil, eggs, and water called for on the box of Spice Cake mix get’s you a tasty sweet snack in a snap.

These are the treats you make the next time your child forgets to tell you it’s their turn to bring class snacks. Delicious with Lots of vitamin A, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and less fat! It’s almost health food. 🙂

No matter which physical form your pumpkin spice treats take: muffins, cookies, or kisses, let them cool completely, then store in an airtight container. We swear these are even better the next day.

Tired of pumpkin flavors? (It happens to the best of us.) How about this chocolate version with no detectable pumpkin overtones.

  • 1 15oz can pure pumpkin
  • 1 box Spice Cake Mix
  • Non-Stick cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven 400° F.
  2. In a large bowl mix the pumpkin and cake mix together until well blended.
  3. Spoon equal amounts of thick batter into each cup of a 12 cup muffin pan that has been lightly coated with cooking spray. Note: WE used a pasty bag with a large fluted tip to pipe the batter into the tins. I made for a more pleasing shape.
  4. Bake for 14-16 minutes.

By piping out many small dollops with a fluted pastry tip – like little kiss shapes. Bake for 4-5 minutes.
