Great Pumpkin Devil Muffins

Simply substituting a can of pure pumpkin for the oil, eggs, and water called for on the box of Devils Food cake mix get’s you a tasty sweet snack (with no detectable pumpkin flavor) that you can feel good about eating. Lots of vitamin A, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and less fat! Here’s the same quick method for a Pumpkin Spice flavored happy ending.

This healthful snack hack was sent to us by Amanda, a long-time Garden Candy friend and follower. Imagine cutting out all those calories and fats and still getting a satisfying cocoa muffin to quell those chocolate and cake cravings. Pssst. We bet you the the kiddies will never catch on. Do try this at home.
