3 Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins
0

31 posts in this topic

1 box yellow Betty Crocker gluten-free cake mix

1 reg can Libby's pumpkin

Cinnamon chips or chocolate chips

If you can find the cinnamon chips they are so much better. I buy several because I can only find them in the fall!

Mix everything together. No liquid needed. Just those 3 things and bake according to the cupcake directions on cake mix (about 18 min). Yum!

Oooooooooooooooo! I'm going to have to try this! Sounds easy & delish. I am especially happy that no liquid is needed --- that means I don't have to worry about iodine. YAY!

One question ---- where the heck do you guys get pumpkin? I have NEVER found it in any of the stores either where I used to live or where I live now. I can find pumpkin pie filling but not just pumpkin. Do you order online?

Can't you get Libby's where you live? I have gotten the WF brand (365?) just to save myself another store.

I always find my pumpkin puree next to the pumpkin pie filling - which is usually in the same place as all the other pie fillings. There are times when it's not available and I know we went through a shortage a year or two ago, but it's almost always available with the other pie stuff.

If you can find Libby's pumpkin, get it...and then make a pumpkin pie using the Libby's recipe on the can. Super good!

These sound so good...so cinnamon chips are now on my shopping list. Do they really rise properly or are they somewhat dense and heavy? (I need these like I need a hole in my head...and my thighs will not thank me.)

I should have put a disclaimer: They dont turn out like regular muffins. They are kinda ugly on top because the shape they go in comes out. They don't end up smooth. Someone made these with reg cake mix for a women's get together and they were all snatched up. I decided to try it with gluten free. I made mini muffins because they are kinda dense and heavy but I still love them. Just something easy for this time of year. I do not do a lot of bread baking so it was a treat for my dd to have muffins.

Oh and I find pumpkin with the canned fruit and pie filing. That's where it was in our publix.

I wonder if you made the cake mix as directed and added the pumpkin? I don't remember what you add to that mix. If it has eggs and oil, maybe add the eggs at least?

I think Karen is right-- gluten free baked goods need more fat in order to make them turn out more like wheat based ones.

The eggs would add more fat and I think beating them first might help the muffins rise a bit better?

You could try adding the eggs or a little oil, but I have a weight watchers recipe that's just a spice cake mix, can of pumpkin and chocolate chips. I've used the Namaste spice cake mix and it's divine. The pumpkin is a sub for oil. But if you want a smoother cake, try the eggs and maybe 1/2 the oil... ;)

I have looked in our Publix as well as our Winn Dixie & they only seem to carry pumpkin pie filling not just plain canned pumpkin. I know this b/c I was looking for plain canned pumpkin to add to my dogs food.

I will keep searching. I will need to sub chia seeds for eggs as I have to be low iodine. That's what appealed to me about this recipe in the first place ---- no eggs, no dairy.

You can't get Libbys? It shows pie on the front, but read the ingredient. Its only cooked & mushed pumpkin

I bought some organic pumpkin in a can at Whole Foods and it was terrible!!!!!!! We usually love pumpkin pie in this house and we all only had one slice and it is rotting in the fridge (normal recipe).

It is Libby's for me for now on.

You know, this is a good example of why I'm such a snobby B**** about the ingredients I buy. I get certain things from certain places and certain brands- I'm very particular, and my family all thinks I'm crazy. It's much more than the gluten thing- I can taste the difference between the frozen peas at Trader Joe's and Stop& Shop! And nobody gonna tell me differnt!

Better yet, cook up a couple pie pumpkins, scoop out the filling and throw in the freezer. Beats the canned stuff hands down! :D

If you have kids let them roast the seeds.

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!laugh.gif I just KNEW if I said it the fates would have to prove me wrong. laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif As usual, every grocery day for months & months & months; I searched for plain canned pumpkin. TODAY they had it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Libby's no less.biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif I got 2 cans. They have more unless some other soul walks in & buys them all up.

It's sort of like when you wait for it to rain to water your garden & wash the dust off the car. Never happens. So you finally get out there & water the garden like heck & wash the car to a sparkling shine....... & less than an hour later the sky opens up & dumps.

I'm a happy girl now. I have the pumpkin; when I get the time I will be making these little goodies.smile.gif

I made these yesterday afternoon. Decided to make them as cookies instead of muffins. I used a can of Libby's pumpkin, a Betty Crocker gluten-free yellow cake mix, and a half cup of chocolate chips. Before combining all of those, I stirred cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove into the pumpkin.

They turned out really good--not to sweet. I'm having a couple (ok, 4) of them for breakfast now with a little cream cheese spread on top. Yum!

Note--these, like most gluten-free baked goods to me, didn't taste as good fresh out of the oven. After they completely cool and sit a while, they are delicious and moist.

I know I posted this thread but thanks for the new tips. I can't find the cinnamon chips this year. My friend ordered them online but I don't need them that bad. And jersey angel- thanks for the cookie tip. I made them last night and so they would sit overnight. You are so right! gluten-free stuff gets better overnight! And the cookie way eliminates any sticking to baking cups! The cream cheese was a hit with my daughter too!

I found Hershey's Cinnamon Chips today at my local Wal-Mart. They were in a special large holiday food ingredients section, not in the aisle where I'd normally find chocolate chips and other baking supplies.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
