3-Ingredient Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Crazy simple, 3-ingredient, pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.

I love everything about Fall, the decorations, the crisp cool air, the changing colors and of course, pumpkin dishes. Funny enough, I don’t like savory pumpkin dishes just the sweet ones. Weird, I know. These muffins have to be my favorite and only 3-ingredients.

3-ingredient muffins? Are you kidding me?! Nope! It truly works. I had a friend who forwarded me a picture on Facebook that showed a can of pumpkin and a cake mix with three little instructions. She sent it to me asking if one could make muffins with just those ingredients. I didn’t know, but i was willing to test it. I admit to being a bit skeptical about them turning out because there was no liquid involved.

I decided to add some chocolate chips because I love them in pumpkin cookies. These muffins taste just like the cookies, but are much quicker and simpler plus you can eat them for breakfast. Always a plus in my book.

These are perfect for busy mornings that require a simple breakfast that is easy to eat on the go. I sent these to work with my husband each morning and he loved them.
