We’re big fans of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins here. So, of course, when I saw this recipe recently, I just had to try it — especially since I already had all of the ingredients on hand — thanks to some free credit from Vitacost.
I thought it would be fun to change things up for our Lunchbox Freezer Cooking series and make these muffins, instead of our usual amazingly-delicious pumpkin chocolate chip muffin recipe.
These were very easy to make and were surprisingly yummy — especially for the ingredients. But they aren’t anywhere near as good as our favorite recipe. However, they are much quicker to make. And, I’m guessing, they are much lower in fat and calories, too.
3-Ingredient Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
- 1 box chocolate cake mix
- 1 can pumpkin
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Mix can of pumpkin and chocolate cake mix together thoroughly (can use an electric mixer, if you prefer). Sprinkle chocolate chips over batter and stir in.
Fill greased or paper-lined muffin tins almost full. Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes, until done.
To freeze: Cool completely and stick into an airtight ziptop freezer bag. Store for up to 4 weeks in the freezer.
To serve: Thaw for 30 minutes to 2 hours. Or, warm for a minute in the microwave.
Makes 12 full-sized muffins.
