Easy healthy delicious muffins

20120715-212819.jpg

Mom saw this on Pinterest. I think everyone can agree that Pinterest is an amazing place for ideas!

She also read somewhere that this is actually a weight watchers recipe and less than 100 calories.

These muffins are also healthier because you don’t add the oil. This recipe just takes one box of cake mix and one can of pumpkin.

It’s very simple…

All you do is mix the can of pinking and cake mix together then fill muffin cups and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Dad put a smear of cream cheese on his and loved it!

Next time she’s going to try a box of spice cake mix.

Give it a go and enjoy a healthy and delicious snack!

Thanks for reading. 🙂

They don’t use pesticide or fertilizer.

They hardly get any weeds and the plants love it.
