Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Spice Muffins: 5 Minutes to Yum!

Seriously, this takes no time at all.  Thanks to my friend Mandy for bringing these muffins to my attention...Quick recipe to get these not-too-bad-for-you treats into the oven and in your mouth, fast!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Spice Muffins

What you need:
Box of Spice Cake Mix
Can of Pumpkin (not pie filling, plain, natural pumpkin)
Chocolate Chips
Optional: Vanilla Greek yogurt, or natural apple sauce

What you are making:

So here's what you do:
Through everything in bowl and mix well!

The optional vanilla yogurt or apple sauce just add even more moisture (the pumpkin will do that too), I've made these both ways and there is really not much of a difference. And remember, no need for butter, oil or eggs as the cake box calls, you are replacing all that with pumpkin...MUCH HEALTHIER, and YUM!

Spray down muffin tins with Pam and stick them in the oven for 18-22 minutes (until a knife comes out the center of a muffin clean).

I'm really enjoying pumpkin right now (if you can't tell from this bunt cake and this cheese cake). 
Enjoy pumpkin season (which I think is October thru December)!
