  • Reviews

  • “I thought they were very good.I just added 2 tsps. of pumpkin pie spice to pick it up a little.”

  • “These are so good and easy. I tried with a spice cake mix and added some pumpkin pie spice (trying to use up the dozen or so containers I’ve accumulated over the years) and they were awesome. Then I tried it with a yellow cake mix and pumpkin pie spice….they were good. Then this morning I used carrot cake mix and they were really good. My family likes them and I like the fact that they are super easy!!!!!I used a 29oz can of pumpkin and 2 cake mixes and the results were the same.These muffins also freeze well!”

  • “I am going through a cooking frenzy…..must be the approaching Fall.Anyway, had a can of pumpkin in the pantry and a yellow cake mix and I thought that there wouldn’t be a thing that I could make.But, lo and behold, here was your recipe.I read all of the reviews and added the following to the recipe (according to other reviewers)…..2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. cloves, raisins, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup white sugar and about 1/3 – 2/3 cups of water.I know that’s a lot of additions, but the muffins came out WONDERFULLY.I used mini muffin pans and got 38 mini muffins, BUT I put way too much batter in each cup, so I could have gotten a LOT more minis.Thanks for such an easy recipe.I think next time I’ll try a spice cake recipe….This is a MUST try!The only problem with the mini muffins is that I keep popping them in my mouth and all of a sudden seven are gone….gulp…better stop!”

  • “This recipe is easy and good.I do recommend that you add one egg and 1/4 cup water to a yellow cake mix.I also added 1/4 cup coconut oil; that really made it good.The next time I try it I will include a little cinnamon.”

  • “I made this with a spice cake mix and added 1 egg and 1egg white with 1/4 cup of water and baked it for 25 minutes @ 350…they turned out light and fluffy and wonderfully moist….next time I’m going to add a fat free cream cheese mixture to the center because they remind me of the starbucks version ……awesome!!!!!!!”

  • “So good and simple to make! I used carrot cake mix, added in 2 shredded carrots (because who wants carrot flavored pieces when you can have real carrot!) and a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice.”

  • “Try this one, you won’t be sorry.What’s not to love?It’s easy, very tasty and only *95* calories.I would highly recommend this one.I added a little cinnamon and nuts for an extra flavor boost.These would be a great snack on a hike, or just in the middle of the day when you feel like a nibble. :-)”

  • “Wonderful! I seen this recipe today and wanted to try them so much that I used a rainbow chip cake mix because it was all I had. They look a little funny with the colorful little chips in them, but they taste great! I can’t wait to try it with a spice cake mix. Oh, and I added 1 tsp cinnamon.”

  • “Delicious!! My husband and I loved them. Didn’t make any changes, and don’t plan on it next time I make them because they were already so good. I used Libby canned pumpkin and Duncan Hines yellow cake.”

  • “I didn’t care for the texture of the muffins. Mine were extremely undercooked even after 30 minutes of baking. I won’t be making these again. Next time I’ll make REAL muffins,”

  • “I love making these muffins! my kids love them too! i add a half cup of cinnamin chips to the batch.They are just like chocolate chips, but cinnamin flavor, they are hard to find, but so worth it!!!”

  • “The best thing about this recipe is that it was easy. Other than that I did not like the taste or texture. Gross.”

  • “These were easy which is why I made them, but I can honestly say that I did not like the flavor that much.It seemed odd.I like regular pumpkin muffins better, which you can still make for a couple WW points by changing the oil for applesauce and other sensible changes.I don’t think I would make these again.I would take the extra time to make the real thing.”

  • “I agree, they’re SO good.I added 1 cup of oats (5-minute type) and also used a spice cake mix.I made them into 6 muffins and a small loaf pan.Maybe I’ll add cinnamon next time, just b/c I love cinnamon.They were moist and b/c of the oats, not so crumby.I’ll make these often!My cupcakes were around 2 oz each (made with 1/4 cup of batter), they came out to 3.3 points per cupcake.The loaf was total 19 points.”

  • “Delicious!I used a box of spice cake mix and the 15 oz can pumpkin, but the consistency was too much like cookie dough.I added about 3 oz of apple sauce and that helped.They are very moist and just a bit more dense than a normal muffin.I threw in some walnuts too.Thanks for a keeper Teresa :)”

  • “These were good and super easy! I did add about 3/4 Tbsp of pumpkin pie spice, a dash of ground cloves, and a few Tbsp. granulated sugar. This didn’t help the calorie count, but the muffins turned out sweet and delicious! I used a 15 oz. box of gluten free yellow cake mix and the whole 15 oz. can of pumpkin. Yum!”

  • “Love it! Easy, delicious! I top mine with a little bit of cinnamon and brown sugar mix! Thank you for sharing!”

  • “These are fine if this is all you have on hand but definitely worth using a standard recipe if you want something really tasty.”

  • “Made these this morning with a spice cake mix, 1 can pumpkin less 1/2 c (made fur babies treats with that!) added a full honeycrisp apple that I shredded, and then topped with splenda brown sugar mix. Made 17 muffins baked for 22 mins. Wonderful muffin recipe Teresa2!”
