Lunch Box Freezer Cooking – Pumpkin Muffins

This week I’m continuing along with Money Saving Mom’s Lunch Box Freezer Cooking series. I invite you to check it out! And although I will not  be posting every day, I will share what I do accomplish from this series!

Sunday I was able to make the pumpkin muffins Crystal shared last week.  This recipe was unbelievably easy!

Here  is how my freezer cooking session went.

I Pre-heated the oven and got out the ingredients: white cake, canned pumpkin, chocolate chips, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla.

Everyone jumped into a medium size bowl and then hopped on over to the muffin pan.

20 minutes later they landed on the counter. There were 18 of these little bites but we had a few casualties.  No, they didn’t land on the floor – they went from the oven to the belly! 😉 I’m not sure if they will make it to the freezer!

This super simple recipe will have you making them as long as you have cake mix and canned pumpkin in the house! These sweet bites welcome fall and having me running to the kitchen right now for one!
