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.

    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
