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.

    • This easy to make bean dip makes a great addisiton to any good munching session. Goes gret with salsa and gluten-free beer. View the full article
    • Good grief!  :o. I'm so sorry, I wish there was something I could do or say to help you.  I agree with the NP, your primary needs to be requesting copies of your records from the other doctors, as well as the records and lab reports from your hospital stay.  They are supposed to work together as a team, not just individually out in left field.
    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep.
