This simple recipe will blow your mind! Add my 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins to your must make list this fall.
So today’s recipe is so simple, I almost feel crazy calling it a recipe. Let’s just say it’s more of a life hack I think everyone should know.
It all breaks down to this though, you only need three ingredients to make these super yummy 3 ingredient Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins. And they taste even more pumpkin-yyyyyyy delightful than they look.
The secret is kind of similar to my Black Bean Brownies hack <— If you don’t know this one you MUST check it out. The hubs actually requests these ALL the time.
It’s basically a box of spice cake mix, a can of pumpkin puree and of course the chocolate chips.
They bake off to be some of the most moist and delightful little muffins ever.
Let’s be honest, most of us are all too busy to make stuff from scratch ALL the time and sometimes a nice little shortcut can really help. You could take these to a party or even serve them when company is in town.
I’m especially a fan because these are three items you can just keep in your pantry that will not perish. That way you can make these even in a pinch. Ya know… when someone just shows up at your door OR you get invited to a last minute house party.
Once again, I’ll leave it up to you whether or not you share OUR little secret with the masses.
Now, let’s be frank… I’d definitely consider these muffins more of a dessert/cupcake like treat than a fulfilling breakfast, but they absolutely hit that pumpkin chocolate chip craving I get so often this time of year.
The Hubs and I devoured these as post-dinner treats.
And while yes it has regular ole flour and sugar in the cake mix, the pumpkin itself has some redeeming health qualities like vitamins and antioxidants. I’d say these little yummy bites are all part of living in balance.
And once again, that’s one of my goals in life.
This little 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin recipe/ life hack was just toooo easy not to share. Now go start your oven and make sure to let me know how they turn out.
