It’s National Pumpkin Day, it’s Monday, and I’ve got a recipe that doesn’t require either of these things to make. However 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins are the perfect way to celebrate National Pumpkin Day and are simple enough to make on a Monday. Oh and they might make your Monday a little better! 😉
The kids liked these muffins and everything lined up so they trump the recipe I was really excited to share but trust me it will be worth the wait!
I first made these a few weeks ago when the kids wanted muffins and I didn’t have time to make any. I was told I could just buy some, umm nope especially when it’s this easy. I decided to tweak my 3 Ingredient Blueberry Muffins and make these 3 Ingredient Mini Pumpkin Muffins! The kids loved them and they’re so easy my 12 year old can make them herself.
Got pumpkin? I was hearing people talk of a pumpkin shortage and thought maybe there was as pumpkin wasn’t in stock a few weeks ago. Now it’s in every store I’ve been to or ordered from online so I’m hoping that’s the case for you! I already stocked up on pie pumpkins to make my own pumpkin puree as we didn’t get a lot in our garden this year. If you can’t find pumpkin making it from pie pumpkins is really easy. I usually make a few pumpkins blend it up and put it in the freezer and then thaw before using if I’m not going to use it within a week.
We still have a few boxes of cake mix in the cupboard from what I had for a back-up when I was making G’s birthday cake in March. While they aren’t the healthiest muffins they are so easy and make use of food we have in the house and are a nice treat for the kids. What we eat has been a little different this year with not only the pandemic but everyone working and learning from home.
Even though I can get most of what we use to buy regularly going shopping once a week isn’t working so well when all the produce is gone in a few days. Running to get groceries has been easier recently than online orders with substitutes, items out of stock, items close to expiration, or bad produce. Which I find a little odd since I can go in and the produce is good. If an item is close to expiration I skip it if we won’t eat it in time as I dislike waste. I’m really trying to be flexible this year, in all areas, but I don’t know anyone that can eat 3 tubs of hummus in 2 days or 8 yogurts that expire the day after I get my order.
Great for breakfast or top with a little frosting, add some chocolate chips, or a little whip cream and caramel, to dress them up or make an easy snack or dessert!
If you love all things pumpkin spice you can add a little pumpkin pie spice. If you aren’t the biggest fan of pumpkin or pumpkin spice and you can have dairy and eggs I highly recommend making them with a box of yellow cake mix.
Again it’s Monday, aka Meatless Monday, and I look forward to seeing what’s happening in your kitchen and hope you link up with me and my co-host Deborah and share!
