Pumpkin Muffins! Guess what the secret ingredient is!

The other day after returning home from our 8 day trip back east, I looked at the calendar and realized I was supposed to bring snacks for my son’s preschool class.  That day was a field trip to a pumpkin farm.  The theme for the week was pumpkins, so I decided I could whip together some of those easy pumpkin muffins that just use canned pumpkin and a cake mix.  I’ve made them before and while they aren’t my favorite I figured they were good enough for a preschool class.

Well, I went into my pantry and saw a carrot cake mix and decided that would be a lot yummier.  As I got started mixing the cake mix and pumpkin together, I decided to doctor up the recipe a bit to give it more flavor and make it yummier.

The result was super moist and really delicious pumpkin muffins!  I will definitely be making these again soon so I wanted to share the recipe with you all.  They are so easy and yummy!  Enjoy!
